Top Videos of the Week to be Showcased on Disney.com’s New Web Series Rule the Mix
This Holiday season, Disney.com invites kids and teens to channel their inner rock star in the U Rock the Holidays event at Disney.com/URock. The online video promotion lets guests create their own music videos from a selection of holiday tunes from Disney artists, then upload them on Disney.com/URock. One grand prize winner will receive a trip to Los Angeles for a rare opportunity to go behind-the-scenes of a Disney music video and meet the artists!
To participate in U Rock the Holidays, Disney.com guests download one of the available :30 song clips, then create and upload their own music videos to the site. The videos will be posted in a gallery on the Disney.com/URock page where guests can then view, comment and “like” the video submissions. For some creative inspiration, guests can check out U Rock the Holidays video submissions from some of their favorite characters including The Muppets, WALL-E, Agent P and Swampy.
This year’s U Rock the Holidays song selections include:
- “Dig Down Deeper” sung by Zendaya from Pixie Hollow Games
- “Winter Vacation” from Phineas and Ferb Holiday Favorites
- “Naughty Naughty Children (Better Start Actin’ Nice)” by Grace Potter from Prep & Landing: Naughty vs. Nice on ABC
- “Forget You” from Disney’s The Muppets Soundtrack
Additional songs will be released throughout the promotion to keep Disney.com guests rockin’ throughout the holiday season.
Each person who uploads an eligible video will receive the hit Disney Mobile app, “Where’s My Water?” To kick it up a notch, there will be a daily sweepstakes and winners will be randomly selected to receive a Disney prize pack, which will include a Walt Disney Records CD. A final grand prize winner will be selected by Disney.com and receive a trip to Los Angeles to go behind-the-scenes of a Disney music video production and meet the artists. Videos will be accepted from now until 4:59 p.m. (Pacific Time) on December 13, 2011. The winners will be announced in January 2012.
For even more rock star treatment, Casey and Tyler from Disney.com’s Rule the Mix web series will feature a video medley each week on their show, from the best U Rock the Holidays submissions.
