LAist Dance Video Contest: Win Gwen Stefani Gift Bag
We've got a bunch of contests that we're rolling out. The first one is for a gift bag that we're seriously not worthy to offer.
Are you a Gwen Stefani fan? Do you know anyone who is a Gwen Stefani fan?
We have a limited edition gift bag that is so stuffed with cool Gwen Stefani stuff that you or your friend won't know what to do. You'll both probably die, which is why we hope that everyone who enters this contest throws together a will that grants this to us.
To win, all you have to do is go to YouTube, GoogleVideo, Buzznet, wherever, and find a great dance video. Either some kids dancing in their room, or a group of people dancing in the garage, or Bigfoot getting down in the woods.
When you find something killer, paste the URL in the comments of this post and put your real email address in the field provided (only LAist will be able to read it). Deadline is noon 12/28, and on December 29 we will announce the winner.
