The Blackhearts partnered with Genero.TV this summer to hold a video contest for the new “TMI” video. The winner was chosen solely by the band, and the grand prize was $4,200.
Out of 37 entries and 11 finalists, the band announced the winner this month, directed by Krzysztof Wróbel from Poland. Congratulations!
I like this one, and it was one of my top five favorites out of all the entries. It’s simple, and gets the message across with humor. The only thing I think it’s missing is Joan Jett and The Blackhearts performing! Joan has historically not been fond of concept-only videos, so maybe a performance version will surface sometime in the future.
Congratulations to all the finalists and everyone who submitted an entry. Go to http://genero.tv/joanjett/ to see the other entries, but it’s probably not a good idea to watch all 36 of them in one sitting. You might get sick of the song too fast! 😀
