alexi laiho impersonation contst

Don’t lie; we know you’ve grabbed your guitar (or a tennis racket, or a broomstick, or the like) and pretended to rock along with your favorite musicians. Hey, we all play guitar too. We know how it is. Normally, you probably don’t want anyone to see you imagining yourself onstage in front of 50,000 screaming fans. But we’re going to give you a good reason to let the whole world watch.

Between now and October 31, you’re going to film yourself doing your very best impersonation of Children of Bodom’s Alexi Laiho. What does that mean? Exactly what it sounds like; you’re going to do whatever it takes* to create a video where we can’t tell you apart from Alexi. You can wear a wig, you can adopt Alexi’s stage moves, or anything you want within reason. But to win, you’d better make us laugh, or blow our minds with your ability to be a clone of Alexi. Our panel of judges will watch each video, and the one we deem the coolest will be selected to win an ESP Alexi Laiho Signature Series LTD AL-600 Scythe guitar!

What kind of video should you make? That’s up to you (but keep it short, no more than five minutes). You can rock out with your guitar (or a guitar-shaped object, for all we care) with Children of Bodom blasting in the background; you can impersonate Alexi being interviewed by a rock mag; you can act out a CoB video… the choice is yours. Most importantly, it might be that the winner does something we’re NOT expecting, so be creative!

After you make your film, upload it at the Metal Injection video upload page. Fill out the entry form so we can get in touch if you win, and that’s it! Make sure your video is submitted before November 1, 2009, read the rules and regulations, and good luck!

*Despite your thinking it would be cool or funny, we will NOT accept any entries that have nudity, offensive language, or feature anything that could be deemed dangerous to yourself or to others.
