White House Seeks Amateur Videos For Flu PSA – $2,500 Prize

Looking for a way to make a few bucks? Handy with a video camera? Worried about swine flu? Then we have an opportunity for you.

The Department of Health and Human Services is asking Americans to make a video public service announcement (PSA) about the H1N1 virus, aka swine flu. The rules are pretty simple: “Create a 0:15, 0:30 or 0:60 second PSA that will inform and motivate people to take steps that will help prevent the spread of H1N1 flu. Make your video fun, smart, and entertaining.” All entries must be posted on YouTube.

HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius says that she is “not talking about a boring educational video…This is your chance to be funny.” Not sure how they would feel about the numerous swine flu song parodies that are already on YouTube, such as “I’ve Got The Swine” (based on Johnny Cash’s “I Walk The Line”) or “I Kissed a Pig” (based on Katy Perry’s “I Kissed a Girl”). But hey, for a chance at $2,500, it’s worth a shot.
