Thousands of you have now downloaded our new track Whatever is Wrong With You, and according to all the feedback we've been getting, you're loving it. Thanks for letting us know... just wait until you get the album.
The video contest has also been running for just over two weeks ("What video contest" you say? See below for the details) and so far there are over 100 videos on YouTube - the good, the bad, and the ugly.
We're really enjoying watching them as they come in. If you haven't seen any yet, head over to YouTube and check some out.
Think you could do better? There's still PLENTY of time left to enter and win the £5000. Get your video up, tell your friends, family, pets, long-lost school mates, and anyone who will listen about it.
Not the video-making type? We're spreading the word around the internet but you can help too: check out as many videos as possible, rate them, comment on them, pass your favourites on to friends...
Linking to the contest or our website from your blogs, Facebook and MySpace pages, and even personal websites is a great way to spread the word - or if you ARE uploading your own video, a great way to get views! (Of course, having a particularly funny or unusual video that will make people watch it more than once would work, too...)
Keep watching, and keep 'em coming!
Marillion's Whatever is Wrong With You Video Contest
Marillion are giving you the chance to win £5000 AND giving away a brand new song FOR FREE
Download a special edit of the BRAND NEW song Whatever is Wrong With You? now at www.whateveriswrongwithyou.com - then use it as the soundtrack to your OWN video.
What kind of video? Well it can be absolutely ANYTHING you want it to be - we don't want to limit your choices by even suggesting something. Just make something that YOU want to make: funny, interesting, serious, mysterious - but something that EVERYONE would want to watch! Then upload it to YouTube... and this is where the £5000 comes in.
The video you upload to YouTube MUST be called "Marillion - Whatever Is Wrong With You". The contest will run until the end of the Happiness is the Road Tour 2008, and on December 1st the video with the most views will win the £5000 cash Grand Prize - it's that simple. The better your video, the more people will watch it, and the more chance you have of winning.
In addition to the Grand Prize, we will also be giving a special Spot Prize to the video we (Marillion) think is the best, regardless of how many views it gets.
There are terms and conditions that will apply - all of these, contest rules, and of course the new track 'Whatever is Wrong With You' as an MP3 are available at www.whateveriswrongwithyou.com
The new Marillion double album Happiness Is The Road (which includes Whatever is Wrong With You?) is due out in Autumn 2008, and is available to pre-order only from www.marillion.com/preorder.
