This sounds like a fun contest; hopefully you’ll do one again sometime. I love mockumentaries!

You’re right about university students. You could limit a contest like this just to college students and get amazing results.

I love faux-mercials; I’ve never laughed as hard as I have at some of the fake commercials on YouTube.

Yes, it seems like Saturday Night Live has strong competition on the web with fake commercials.

You know, I could probably think for hours on end and not come up with a usable idea for a video contest like this. I guess you’ve either got it or you don’t.
