The American Embassy and Consulate in Hanoi and Saigon recently held a joint video contest to showcase 100 seconds of Vietnam. "If you had 100 seconds to tell the world something about Vietnam, what would it be?" The winner gets an iPad mini. John, Old Boy, and I entered and yet we did not even make the top 11 despite our video being original and with a twist. I don't have to further explain how disappointed I am because of this. I will just show you some videos that made top 11. I threw up thinking about why and how our video didn't make it.

These videos were selected before mine.
All I can say is, WTF? WTF? WTF BRAAAAH
I know that the ending of my video was a huge risk, but even with its inclusion the overall video still trumped in quality and originality of the selected few. WTF. I haven't been this mad in a long while.
