Gillette Presents The Search for the Next Phenom

A couple days ago we blogged about the Gillette Trickstars 08 contest on YouTube where your video of you being tricky could win you fame and fortune. Or maybe a Phenom. Turns out Trickstars is a European contest. But fear not, citizens of North America. The Search for the Next Phenom is for you!

Yes, we interrupt this normally scheduled Celebrity Facial Hair Friday to bring you not one but three celebrities - Roger Federer, Tiger Woods, and Thierry Henry. And this time, it's personal.

Create a video of 90 seconds or less showcasing your skill in a ball sport. Your video may include the biggies--basketball, baseball, soccer, football, golf, tennis--the lesser obvious ones-- volleyball, water polo, cricket, rugby, croquet--and even the fooseballs and Super Balls of the world. You can kick it, throw it, shoot it, catch it, juggle it, dribble it, heck do a dance with it if you like. If you're phenomenal enough, you could win.

What could you win? A cool 30 grand. Or a Blu-Ray DVD player. Or a 42" plasma. Or more. You've got until May 20th to upload your video, so start practicing. Based on the videos that have already been submitted, you've still got plenty of chances to win.

(A word to all you bowlers out there - don't include any cuts in your videos. Show me three strikes on three lanes in a single cut. Then I'll be impressed. Otherwise, I ain't buying it.)
