Esurance ‘Biggest Trekkie’ Video of the Week (Final Week) March 2, 2009

by Staff , Filed under: Contest,Marketing/Promotion,Star Trek (2009 film) , trackback

You have just 3 days to submit a video to the new Esurance Star Trek site explaining how you are the ‘biggest Trekkie’ and get a chance to win a trip to the premiere of Paramount’s new Star Trek movie. Each week TrekMovie picks one entry as our video of the week, check this weeks entry below [note video auto-plays after you hit ‘more’].


This week’s video pick ‘Growing Up Trek’ by Andrew Fortner

Andrew’s video was selected for the production values (including sepia toned flashbacks), the multiple scenes, and his message about how the themes of messages have been part of his life…plus a nice Shatneresque moment at the end. Show Andrew the love and give him a high rating.

There are a lot of good entries this week and it was hard to choose, if there were a second choice it would have been the adorable ‘Grampa Bill’ which features a girl explaining why her ‘Grampa Bill’ is the Biggest Trekkie. There are also quite a few videos showing very impressive Star Trek collections that may even compete with TrekMovie’s own John Tenuto and his ‘Star Trek Room.’

Win a trip to the premiere of Star Trek – just three days left
In order to enter the contest yourself, you must upload a video to The Biggest Trekkie Contest page at The winner gets a trip for 2 to the Hollywood premiere of Star Trek. Entries must be made by March 5th. The winner of the prize is selected using a number of factors, including how highly the video is rated on the Esurance site. (see Esurance site for full contest rules and eligibility).

TrekMovie at Wondercon: Say Hi to the voice voice of Erin Esurance
Esurance’s official animated spokesperson, the secret agent Erin Esurance, has already appeared in some online videos and radio commercials for their Star Trek promotion. The voice of Erin Esurance, Mo Melladay, was at Wondercon this weekend and stopped to pose with her counterpart. Mo tells TrekMovie she just did some more voice work for more Star Trek related Esurance commercials.

That video was actually one of the better entries I’ve seen. A little creepy, but I could feel the dedication he has to the show and the message behind it.

Nice video!

Erin Esurance next to a real life person only highlights how impossible those proportions are. :P
