Impersonate ALEXI LAIHO Video Contest

ESP Guitars has teamed with web sites Metalinjection.tv and MetalSucks.net to bring you the “Impersonate Alexi Laiho” video contest. As the name implies, to enter the contest, you must create a short video of yourself impersonating Children of Bodom guitarist Alexi Laiho.

The videos will be judged on originality, authenticity, humor, or overall impressiveness. The entry videos must be uploaded at Metalinjection.tv before 11/1/09.

The grand prize for the contest is an ESP LTD AL-600-Scythe Alexi Laiho Signature Series guitar. ESP’s director of marketing and artist relations Allen Steelgrave says, “This is a great opportunity for someone to get creative and have fun. The winning video might not have the best production values, but it might be the one we laugh the hardest at. Plus, it’s something everyone with a video cam and some creativity can do.”

Laiho, who won Guitar World Magazine’s 2008 Reader’s Poll as “Best Metal Guitarist”, appears in a short introductory video for the contest.
