Kountze video shows you what happens when you don’t buy yearbook

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

For their entry in Walsworth’s 2012 Video Contest, the yearbook staff from Kountze High School in Kountze, Texas, created a parody of the popular “What happens when…” commercials from DIRECTV.

Kountze shows you what happens when you don’t buy a yearbook, and the results aren’t pretty.

Watch the clip below, then vote for Kountze’s “Yearbook Video” over at Walsworth’s Facebook page by giving it a Like. The video contest runs until Nov. 19, and winners will be selected by a committee of judges based on the following criteria: message and appropriateness to theme, creativity, entertainment value, viral nature as determined by the number of video Likes on Facebook and technical prowess.
