  1. Congratulations John Diep in Rochester NY – good theme! I did also REALLY LIKE the Georgia MOE QUESO MOE FUN. I did not see it in the views on the newsrelease. Another friend QUESO SHEDD was in there and was really great too! Are the views listed the ones that were runners up and are they also being announced?


    • Gary – the videos in the reel were not necessarily the top contenders. There were six or seven that were really close. We weren’t planning to announce the runners up, but I could send you that list if you’re interested.
