BlackBerry Super Fanboy Contest

And the Winner of CrackBerry's BlackBerry Super Fanboy Contest is....


Super Fanboy Contest

OK CrackBerry Nation and finalists in our BlackBerry Super Fanboy Contest. Here it is. The moment of truth. The five finalist videos were absolutely awesome and the judging panel had a heck of a time trying to figure out which one was the best and most deserving of the grand prize. What made it exceedlngly difficult was that it seemed every judge had a different favorite. My favorite was the Go Hard for the Brand I Love BlackBerry Rap. Adam's favorite was Inceptionally Fast. Bla1ze thought BlackBerry, My Everlasting Light should win. Using a BlackBerry while SkyDiving was my mom's favorite, and Miss CrackBerry loved BlackBerry Adrenaline.  

But in the end we had to make a decision.... remember the prizes for this contest are pretty epic:

GRAND PRIZE: A trip to San Francisco to attend the BlackBerry Developer Conference (October 18th to 20th - includes airfare for up to two individuals*, 3 Nights Stay at the Marriott Conference Hotel and 2 BlackBerry DevCon event passes and dinner out one night with the CrackBerry team); a BlackBerry PlayBook + BlackBerry 7 Smartphone of choice; $100 BlackBerry Accessories from and a CrackBerry Kevin custom designed BlackBerry Super FanBoy T-Shirt!

4 RUNNER UP FINALIST BLACKBERRY SUPER FANBOY PRIZE PACKS: $100 in free BlackBerry Accessories from, an autographed copy of CrackBerry: True Tales of BlackBerry Use & Abuse and a CrackBerry Kevin custom designed BlackBerry Super Fanboy T-Shirt!

Crazy awesome prizes, right? So who's getting declared as CrackBerry's BlackBerry Super Fanboy Contest winner?!  Keep reading to find out......

BlackBerry owner takes apart his Storm 2 blindfolded!


While the judging panel is still debating over which of the five finalists should win the grand prize in CrackBerry's BlackBerry Super Fanboy Contest, I wanted to give props to one of the most impressive non-finalist entries submitted.

Most tech junkies are familiar with the always popular phone tear-down video... where you disassemble a  smartphone to see what's inside. And I think everybody can recall watching a classic movie where you have a military scene and soldiers training to take apart their rifles blindfolded. 

With the Smartphone Wars heating up, it only makes sense then that true BlackBerry fanboys / soldiers should be trained and ready for battle... which putting one and one together means being able to take part your BlackBerry blindfolded! In the above video you can watch Alex Cervantes (user name TheWait_IsOver on CrackBerry) do just that with his Blackberry Storm 2. And after the take down is complete, Alex recites his This Is My BlackBerry pledge of allegiance (read the words of it below). Totally epic! Nice job Alex.

Super Fanboy Contest

OK CrackBerry Nation, over the last two days we've posted our FIVE Finalist Videos in CrackBerry's BlackBerry Super Fanboy contest. The videos have been AWESOME and you can find all of them below. If you haven't watched them yet, I suggest taking 20 minutes to watch them all now. You won't be disappointed. 

It was hard deciding upon five finalists from all the entries submitted (you can see them all on our youtube channel) to begin with, and now things are going to get EVEN more difficult as our judging panel deliberates on who the grand prize winner will be. For your chance to influence the judges on who you want to see win, be sure to watch all the videos and respond in the comments with your rank order favorites and reasoning. We plan to announce the winner tomorrow (Friday) here on the blogs, so hurry and get watching!

Huge props go again to everybody who participated. And to those who didn't make the final round, watch your email as we'll be following up with a nice consolation prize. And to the five finalists... I hope you get some sleep tonight... tomorrow is a big day! Good luck!

BlackBerry Fanboy Video Contest Finalist #4: BlackBerry, My Everlasting Light


Ok, so we're one, two, three finalist videos down in our BlackBerry Super Fanboy contest and it's time for our fourth to get unveiled here on the CrackBerry blogs. This video comes to us via Alexander Perri of Toronto, Canada and he's called it BlackBerry, My Everlasting Light (aptly name for the Black Keys song which the video is set to).

As you can read in the full video details provided below, Alexander was trying to come up with crazy ideas to show off how much he loved BlackBerry, but decided that just didn't make sense and instead went for an approach that was literally all him. The video above walks through a day in Alexander's life, which is definitely a day in the life of a BlackBerry addict. I think a lot of the hardcore CrackBerry readers will see a bit of themselves staring back in this one. It's a well put together video. Definitely a BlackBerry Fanboy, that's for sure. Great stuff!

BlackBerry Fanboy Video Contest Finalist #3: I'm Falling for BlackBerry!!


Following the first and second of our top five CrackBerry Super Fanboy contest finalist videos (which we're posting in no particular order), our third finalist video comes from Julien who lives in Los Angeles. A BlackBerry user for over seven years, Julien says he takes his BlackBerry with him just about everywhere he goes.

For his fanboy contest entry video, Julien takes his BlackBerry and puts it to use in a place he never has before... I'll let you watch the video find out where it is and see how it all unfolds. When you're done, you can keep reading below for a bit more on Julien and the story behind I'm Falling for BlackBerry. Love it!!

BlackBerry Fanboy Video Contest Finalist #2: BlackBerry Adrenaline!


Our second finalist in CrackBerry's BlackBerry Super Fanboy contest comes to us via CrackBerry member Deathcommand. Deathcommand is well known on the CrackBerry forums, having racked up almost 4,000 forum posts to date (win or lose, he's a BB super fan in my book!). 

His video entry is titled BlackBerry Adrenaline... and well.. let's just say as I did with our first finalist video, I'll keep the teaser here short so you can watch and be surprised and entertained for yourself. But it's definitely got a bit of everything, action, humor and everything in between. When you're done watching the video above, you can keep reading below for more on deathcommand and his BlackBerry Adrenaline video. CrAzY awesome stuff!

BlackBerry Fanboy Video Contest Finalist #1: BlackBerry for Life rap - Go Hard for the Brand I Love!


Our first finalist video in CrackBerry's BlackBerry Super Fanboy contest comes via Marco van Hylckama Vlieg, who put together an AWESOME BlackBerry rap video. I don't want to give too much away in the teaser here, so hit play on the video above and take it all in. It's totally hardcore BlackBerry Super Fanboy. Which also means I'll slap on a little warning for explicit lyrics. :)

Once you're done watching, keep reading for the back story on this video entry as well as the full lyrics to the song. Bonus points go to Marco for developing his own BlackBerry PlayBook app too. On a day where Apple is doing their new iPhone announcement, I think it's totally good timing that we're posting this up on CrackBerry today... time to go hard for the brand I love!
