Morning Musume PV Contest Winners Announced

The Brady Bunch from HELL...tho Alice has never looked hotter!A while back, Morning Musume announced they'd be holding a contest for fans to submit PVs for their upcoming single "3, 2, 1 Breakin' Out". The contest was held via MySpace (ed: people still use MySpace?) and the winners were announced today.

They released a chroma screen version of the members singing the song and tasked fans with making the best 2min video they could.They received 485 entries from 27 countries and 3 winners were announced in 3 categories. Hit the jump for a look at the winners!

My favorite one was done by I.C. from the good ol' USofA which features some cool camera moves and bright vibrant colors. This won "Morning Musume's Choice".

Next up we have zUNGRY&MYUNGRY from Japan who took a page out of AHA's book and started with a pencil sketch which slowly adds color. Pretty cool video, but the beginning gives me a seizure! This won the "Grand Prix" selection which I think means it was the overall winner...?

Last, and in my opinion least, is Jasmine from Hong Kong. I like the concept and execution of the little skit they put on, but I'm a geek so the more flashy videos above grabbed me more. Plus, I don't really see this as a 'Morning Musume PV' meaning the focus should ALWAYS be on the members and not other people. If this could be re-made with the members in the various roles, I'd be more accepting of it. But I do think this was probably the hardest to make since she had to deal with filming the live action stuff. This won "Tsunku's Choice".
