Late last year we launched a video contest for "High Wit Me" by Dam-Funk & Snoopzilla, a bonus track from their album 7 Days of Funk. We offered a download of green-screen footage of Snoop & Dam-Funk performing the song, along with these simple rules: "You can do anything you like as long as it's creative – shoot new footage, animation, found footage, Snoop and Dam green screen footage or combinations of all of the above." Snoop & Dam looked through all the submissions and chose their favorite five clips.
