Under massive cheer and applause of a huge crowd they walk their way to a podium. The woman clears her throat then bends over the microphone to annonce:

The man adds: “And just as we expected the incoming videos covered a wide range of styles. Mini drama, animation or just experi… mental (laughter)

“You were great! We’d like to thank everybody who participated. Thank you, each and every one of you!” (applause)

Smart and charming woman: “And now, without further ado, we’d like to announce the winners of 2008’s Shirtcity T-Shirt-video contest. The main prize of 1000 Euro goes to …”
