  1. $5000 Prize – AmericInn Hotels Launches Amateur Video Contest Soliciting Humorous Tales of Noisy Hotel Stays

    Inspired by the outrageous stories travelers tell about their experiences with noisy hotel rooms, the 210+ -hotel chain AmericInn, launched a Web-based contest today calling for travelers to submit their own bizarre and humorous tales of noisy, unruly and disturbing hotel neighbors to http://www.yournoisyneighbor.com.

    AmericInn is encouraging contestants to be creative in telling their “noisy neighbor” stories either written or on video through on-camera scene re-enactment, expressive narration, funny antics and sound effects. The “Your Noisy Neighbor” contest, in which consumers compete for a $5,000 “Quiet Getaway” grand prize vacation, is part of AmericInn’s new marketing campaign positioning their hotel rooms as among the quietest in their class.

    “Noisy Neighbor” videos must be no longer than one minute and first uploaded to YouTube. Contestants can link their YouTube video to their contest entries at yournoisyneighbor.com, or they have the option of submitting a 200-word written description of their noisiest hotel experience. To inspire contestants, AmericInn has posted their own video entitled “Who’s in the shower?” at http://www.yournoisyneighbor.com. During the contest, which ends October 14, 2007, visitors to http://www.yournoisyneighbor.com will get to vote on their favorite Noisy Neighbor stories.
