FAQ
What do you mean by talent?
If you can draw a caricature, ride your bike backwards, karate chop a block in half, spin a wild yarn, or make a beautiful paella, all you have to do is get it on video. You can speed up or slow down the natural process in order to fit a 15 - 30 second video clip. Videos will be judged on total entertainment value.

Can I sing a popular song as my talent?

Can I enter a video of my child performing a talent?
Sure! If you can demonstrate that you are the parent or legal guardian of the child in the video and that you are entering the contest yourself, not on behalf of the child. All videos of children will be verified to ensure that they were submitted by a parent or legal guardian.

Can I enter a video of my pet performing a talent?
