We had a similar contest before, but it kind of crumpled due to the disorganization and lack of entries so I'm making a new one.
I like to make community videos every once in a while, a good example is the hobby electronics videos that I make. I have plenty of new ones that I'd like to make, but before I do I think we'll have this contest.
Basically the contest is to create a short video into that we, the community, can include in the beginning of any videos we make. I'm thinking nothing longer than 7 seven seconds. Sound effects are definitely welcome, but as far as music goes that's a shady area. If you're gong to have music in it (not saying it should have music), make sure it blends in well (not just some song you like) and something most people would enjoy. Nothing worse than having some emo band screaming in the intro and then jumping into a completely different video/music theme.
What text should I include in my video?

Post here if you're interested in participating in this contest and you can post links to all of your submissions. At this point you can make as many submissions as you want. Once we get enough entries I'll make a new thread with all the videos and we can vote and narrow down the best ones.
Here's some examples of the stuff that we had last time from searching "zomgstuff intro" on youtube.
