South Sioux staff gets a little scary with their yearbook video

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

The yearbook staff from South Sioux City High School in South Sioux City, Neb., created the following yearbook commercial this year and aired it for the school just before Halloween. Now, it’s an entry in Walsworth’s 2012 Video Contest.

The idea was to create a parody of the stereotypical horror movie, with a slight comedic touch added.

You can see the video below, then you can vote for South Sioux’s “Yearbook Horror” 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.
