  1. I totally think that The Moe’s Queso Rap by Dustin Chan-Pong (above) should have won. (and no, I don’t know him!)

    Look at the complexity of that video versus the one that did win. No contest!

    I wish the winners well, but I do think this first runner-up should have been a winner! Excellent job!

  2. The one by Peter Benoit rocks! Clever idea and loved seeing him brush his teeth with queso, have queso as his breakfast cereal, and even (sadly!) that his wife was leaving him due to his queso obsession! So clever!

  3. Peter Venoit, sorry (one of the finalists)
