ScHoolboy Q and Footaction hooked up this summer to remake the artist’s “Man of the Year” video using consumer Vine and Instagram videos/photos. All you have to do is capture your best summer style, upload the videos/images via your social channels and hashtag #ownthesummer. Fans can track their submissions online at www.Footaction.com/ownthesummer. Schoolboy will then select his top picks to help remake his video for “Man of the Year” later this summer. Participants had until August 8th 2014 by 11:59pm EDT to upload their submission.
This is how it all happened, Footaction worked with Schoolboy Q to select a few photos and videos to include in his online video for “Man of the Year.” If they selected your submission, they will contact you to request an original file and to have you sign a release. If other people appear in your Submission, we may ask them to sign releases, as well. If they don’t receive the materials they requested in a timely manner, they might not be able to use your Submission.
So after they received hundreds of entries ranging from groups of guy friends doing backflips and the latest dance crazes, to one man pop & lock shows. Then, the “Man of the Year” himself - ScHoolboy Q - sat down and scoured over the submissions to pick out his favorites for inclusion in his remake video.
Today is the day that the world will see the lucky winners and what they created, also yours truly along with some of my friends will too be included in this amazing video. Check it out… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q4Y9hlPPd0c
