Fan Direction: 5 Great Music-Video Contest Winners
1. Foo Fighters, "Walk" (Phil Hodges)
The Foo Fighters held a contest in 2011 for their fans to make videos for each of the songs on their album Wasting Light. This one wasn't a paying opportunity, but when Dave Grohl asks you to do something, you do it. Instead, the winners saw their videos premiere on FuseTV. As the official videos for the songs, they are now compiled on the Foos' official YouTube channel.
All are great, but this one by Phil Hodges for "Walk" is my personal favorite, featuring a bit of a takeoff on Forgetting Sarah Marshall's Dracula musical. There's just something really awesome about a Dave Grohl muppet that makes this one great.
