Bentley Jones has finally announced the winners of the So Much More Video Competition set a few months back for some snazzy bits of merch including a Sonic & SEGA All Stars Racing Art book! The winners are as follows (click on names to see the entries, or wait for the chance on the embedded links in the video!):
2ND PLACE WINNERS:
1ST PLACE WINNERS:
Darkspeeds (Surprise surprise!)
Awesome job guys! I’m also laughing my arse off as Sonic Yoda has also managed to obtain an honourable mention…perhaps for not being afraid to show his love for Lee (uber fandom apparently)? Comisserations to all those who didn’t win, but take pride in your efforts!
On another note you will also remember I put my merch where my mouth was a few weeks back, and indeed I both predicted Matt Pieper and Klayton Schafler‘s wins (although I don’t think it took a genius to figure out how great they were). I also thought Freen in Green‘s entry might place, and as they didn’t (and as promised) I will send you peeps a goody bag – please let me know your address by emailing me at tbird [at] sonicstadium.org. Oh, and I think I owe Stasis a few bits and pieces too!
If you fancy snagging yourself some merchandise keep your eyes peeled right here on TSS for MORE COMPETITIONS!…and also keep your ears open for more exciting news from the world of Bentley Jones on the Official Bentley Jones Website.
I’ve put my copy of Sonic Classic Collection down for five miuntes to show you my third and final favourite entry for the Bentley Jones So Much More Video Competition. As you’ve probably guessed, most of my faves have centred on videos where the entrants have roped their mates in to get involved, and this one is no different – Club 9 have banded together in this rather artsy and albeit silly video in which they mime their way through the track, or stand around looking moody. It’s filmed in really high quality, it’s fun to watch, and half the band are called Ryan (ok, so the last one’s not really a selling point). Plus, the guy on the sound board is mental.
Again, I think this is a real contender for top spot in the competition, and in true T-Bird style will send them a goodie bag as consolation should they fail to make the top 10 entries.
Watch out though, the band do start loosing clothes towards the end of the video. Form an orderly queue please ladies.
EDIT: Damn! I keep finding more awesome entries! Check out the Bentley Bird!
OK, so a few weeks ago I saw an entry for the Bentley Jones So Much More Video Contest by Sonictoast that blew my hat off my head, with live action, stop motion, and a bloke dressed as Eggman. Well, today I spotted a nifty bit of art appear on BJ’s facebook page. Perousing facetube following a series of links turned up this cover of So Much more by a band called “Freen In Green”, which gives the track an Indie makeover – percussion, bass, rhythm and melody guitars, and of course some vocalz. 75% of band appear to be hiding off camera / behind hair, but I guess that’s forgiven because there’s a pretty good attempt at the solo! Anyway, this is another spiffing example of what you can do to really sweep away the competition and do something original, as well as have fun with your mateys (because it’ cool to show you have friends!). Anyway, I think this has made it onto my list of entries where “if it doesn’t place I will bear my backside in Fenwick’s window“. I like to put my money where my mouth is, so Yamino, if you don’t place in the winners, I will send you a consolation prize!
Check out the video!:
Oh, and they also have an account on facebook too!
You’ve only have until Friday (5th of March 2010) to get your entries in, so if you haven’t done so yet, you’ve got a busy couple of days ahead of you! If you spot any good entries, lets us know in the comments!

I’ve been keeping my finger on the pulse and looking out for entries for the Bentley Jones Video Competition for So Much More…and to be honest, I wasn’t feeling it. There’s a couple of good entries out there, but I’ve seen the inside of far too many people’s bedrooms for my liking.
So after a long day of work I came home to find this, and my faith has been restored in humanity. This is amazing. THIS IS SO MUCH MORE. If this doesn’t place in the contest, I will personally send Sonictoast a prize because the amount of time that must have been spent on this is mind-boggling. You guys are my heroes today! Especially Mr. Foley; if they make a Sonic live action film I think we’ve found our Eggman…

It is time to go beg your mum for your pocket money early this week, as Bentley Jones‘ “So Much More” EP is now available to preorder from the Official Bentley Jones shop for the mere prince of eight coins of the realm (£8 – about $13). The CD comes with a signed promo photo of Mr. Jones, and is an extremely limited run, so get your skates on if you want to nab a copy!
