Make A 5.9 Second YouTube Video & You Could Win A BMW

By Megan O'Neill 

Want to own the new BMW 3 Series?  All you have to do is create a 5.9 second video about how much you want it and the car could be yours!

BMW of North America has launched a YouTube video contest and they’re giving U.S. residents 18 years and over the opportunity to win “the ultimate driving machine.”  Make a creative 5.9-second video to show BMW how much you desire the new 3 and you could drive away with one.

Why 5.9 seconds?  Well, the new 3 has a zero to 60 time of 5.9 seconds so that’s how much time they’re giving you to convince them to give it to you.  They’ll be looking for creativity, so try to do a little more than talk in to your webcam for 5.9 seconds about how much you’d love a sweet new ride.

The official contest rules are sure to remind entrants that “this is not a prize draw, but a skill-based competition” so take that 5.9 seconds to put together something really awesome, funny, attention-grabbing and all around amazing.  The prize is worth putting some time into this, if you ask me!
