The Genie Company – a garage door opener manufacturer – recently launched its “Open Sesame” Facebook Video Contest. The contest encourages consumers to submit creative videos that demonstrate ways a Genie door opener can be perceived as a “hero” in the garage setting.

Videos must show the garage door opener being used properly and safely. The grand prize is $5,000 and four finalists will be awarded $1,000 each.

Not bad, considering how little work probably needs to go into the project.

Of course, it sounds like you have to have a Genie opener featured in the video, so that’s a potential investment right there. Too bad brand didn’t matter.
