Win A Trip to USH's Studio Tour Grand Opening with Jimmy Fallon
We recently reported about the addition of Jimmy Fallon to Universal Studios Hollywood's Famous Studio Tour. (Here) Many of you let us know that you also thought he was a great addition. Universal Studios Hollywood wants to give you the opportunity to attend the red carpet premiere of the grand opening. If you've ever wanted to be a Studio Guide at Universal Studios Hollywood, or thought that you could do it, now is the chance to show them what you've got.
How do you enter this contest, you ask? The first thing you need to do is grab your video camera, Flipcam, iPhone, Blackberry, Android, or what ever you use to shoot video. Then record a 90 second video of you giving a tour somewhere. Anywhere. This is your chance to show off the Studio Guide inside of you.

That's a quick way to lose your audience very quickly. I would give more tips, but that wouldn't be fair now would it.
Now that your 90 second masterpiece is shot, head to the official Universal Studios Hollywood Facebookpage to enter. ( Make sure to read all of the rules on their Facebook page before entering.
To enter you must be 18 years old, live in the U.S. and have your entry submitted by May 1, 2011 at 11:59 PM PDT. Then you can start spamming everyone with messages to remember to vote for you.
