Portland Videographer Advances to Friendly's Finals

We're not sure if it's art, but it apparently won Ryan Eling a MacBook computer. It's a video entry in a contest being held by Friendly's, the ice cream and restaurant company. As a result of dreaming up "The Ballad of Phineas Fribble," complete with original song, choreography, and special effects, Eling is in a seven-person final for a $10,000 shopping spree of Apple products. (No gift certificates? Maybe they need to drum up some more business first.)

Check out the video here, and then, if you are moved, you can vote on whether you think it should win the contest.
