I know, i know why didn't I get a ticket when I could.... well the thing is being in Mexico I was used to ticketfast and on past years I asked about the layaway option but on that time was not available to international customers (here's the post from 2009 http://coachella.com/forum/showthread.php?t=26001), whining apart...

I'm not that great forum contributor but I'm definitely not a Lurker... so here I am asking the great coachella forum for your Help!.

There is a contest going on right now by Samsung Mexico and are giving away 8 Coachella tickets, I wish this was opened to all so anyone who couldn't get a ticket got a chance... but I guess you feel the same when a contest opens up only for US Residents, I know I do! LOL

So please! just click the "LIKE" button on my youtube video (don't worry you don't have to really like it ;)), thanks on advance and with all your help I hope I can see you all there again, enjoying the polo fields for the best weekend of the year!!!

So you're in Mexico, Caifanes is reuniting and you didn't already get your pass months in advance? Something isn't right here.

wrong... I was phonetically typing Seņor in a typical "mexican speaking english pronunciation"... as I was sarcastically making myself a stereotype in response to GuyInTucson's stereotype of ALL mexicans liking Caifanes... but enough feeding.

This is where you FAIL. You don't like Caifanes? No wonder you didn't get a ticket. :nono

He used a Black Keys song in his video, comic book bubbles, and dealt with Trolly comments well, I say you have earned another vote.
I 'Liked' it.
Good luck!

Thanks for the vote mlant... hope to make this my third time seeing The Black Keys @ Coachella.

I "liked" it too. Now go back and edit your first post. Click edit, then click Go Advanced. Click the little YouTube icon in the tool bar, and then copy paste 6jnJADx_3LE in between the brackety things. That will embed your video so people see it. The code is the stuff after the = sign in the video's URL on YouTube.

Liked it. I wish I coulda Loved it!! That video kicks a lot of ass.

03-30-2011, 10:23 PM
Thanks Stickjohn, Davids81...If you think that of my video then this (my friends video) will blow your mind, ha ha ha

We recorded and edited both last sunday, because during the week we would have a lot of work... also because the deadline to upload is this friday.

I won't bother you asking to vote (but would sure appreciate it if you did :))... just would like to show not all videos suck so much... at least i know some will get a chuckle out of it.

Quit pretending you don't like Caifanes. My wife is mexican and she says you are a complete liar.

Thanks Coachellians, with your help I'm now inside the top 8 videos in the contest (and with the quality of the competition it's really all it takes), just got to keep on "liking" inside youtube this week... please I'm almost there!

To spicy things up and make it interesting for all...

If I get to win... I'll guaranty to buy the fist person that spots me just ONE (1) of the following: Churro, Soft Preztel, or Frozen Lemonade, per day!!! (one winner each day)

How to implement this you say?... well I'm planing to take a list with the name of every one of you guys that tell me they have "liked" the video on youtube (I'll give you the vote of confidence here, and also if I win I won't care much if you didn't) and then when you spot me... all you havo to say is SPIN FOR COACHELLA!... and there you go just tell me your board name and if it checks with the list AND you are the first one of the day (will report via twitter), you'll win yourself a free treat!

Thanks a lot Harrisment, wstsidela, gaypalmsprings, fredbull, and Lithium.... you guys helped me get to the top 5 videos (there are 20 finalists and 8 tickets) and checking the other videos, there's a great chance I'll get one of them... keep you guys posted, as the are supposed to post the winners at the most next tuesday... but considering the tight deadline I hope they do it sooner.

Hope to see you all next week :D and also remember if I win and you see me... Just say "Spin for coachella" (hell even if you don't say it)... and you are on the list of board members who posted on the thread that they voted... you get your choice of frozen lemonade, churro or soft pretzel... on me!, that's my way of thanking this great forum.

So Freechella is over, but will not be forgotten :D... to all thanks again for helping me get there, as I supposed no one spotted me, as it was natural everyone had most important things that to be looking up for a free treat :P... anyway one lucky random stranger got a free churro sunday night!... wish my camera batteries hadn't died on me to take the picture but just so you know I was really really there, here's some people you might recognize ;) I know should have bought them the churro but rules are rules lol.
