Dance Video Contest!!! Deadline Extended to May 15th

Guess what?! I’ve extended my deadline for videos. Why? Because I realized I probably didn’t give some of you enough time and I’ve been too busy with my other job to do anything myself. Gah! Life is complicated, isn’t it? Okay, now listen to me. Go get your computer or camera and start dancing. Right NOW!

The new deadline is May 15th. Hopefully, that’s enough time for all of us to get a little dancing on tape. Now get to shakin’ your groove thing!!!

Take a look at our scientific method of choosing the right dance song.


Fast Tube by Casper



1. No naked bodies.  Use this as a guide – NO B’s allowed.  In other words I don’t want to see your Butt, Boobs or Bellies.  You can shake your butt, boobs, and bellies, just make sure you have clothes over them when you do so. Any questionable content will be disqualified and I’ll call your grandma to tell her how disappointed she should be in your behavior.

2. Video can not exceed 1:30.  That’s plenty of time to get your groove thang. No exceptions to this rule. Any video longer than 1:30 will not be viewed or entered in the contest.

3. The song chosen for this contest is Low (featuring T. Pain) by Flo Rida. You can see the video for the song here. I can’t help but think we’ll improve it immensely!!

4. Contest ends on May Day!!  That’s right May 1, 2011 at midnight is the end of submissions.

5. Upload your video to YouTube, then send the url to  No limit to how many times you enter.



The panel of judges for this contest will be Clay Phillips, April Phillips, Ellen Phillips and maybe an assortment  of friends, relatives and neighbors. We’ll choose the video that wows us the most. So, make sure you have plenty of the WOW! factor.

1st Prize– Custon Designed Coal Creek Farm t-shirts in your size. We’re still in the process of designing these, but I guarantee they will be COOL! We’ll supply one shirt to each person in the winning video.  The winning video will be featured right here on Coal Creek Farm and will have a spot in our Coal Creek Farm Dance Page forever and ever. That’s right, at the end of the contest we’ll launch our Dance Page which will have all our dance videos for you to easily view at your leisure.

2nd Prize– Okay, there really isn’t a second prize, but we’ll use awesome clips from the rest of the submissions to put together an EPIC COAL CREEK FARM DANCE FAN VIDEO! I’m smiling just thinking about it. I can’t wait to see all of you DANCE!

Now, get busy!  Shake those booties!!!
