The elastic workforce on Amazon.com’s Mechanical Turk website have been busy producing their interpretations of Olympic style events. What’s yours? Everyone is invited to a competition of silly, absurd, or mundane videos interpreting or creating anew an Olympic-style sporting event. Just follow these easy steps:

  1. Download the Mechanical Olympics sign, write the name of the sport that you are representing, and make sure your actor(s) wear the sign during his/her performance.
  2. Create a video between 30 and 60 seconds in length. You can perform any sport. We’ll ask you to let us know which sport you’re interpreting on the submission form.
  3. Upload your video to YouTube.com.
  4. Use the submission form to enter the competition. Voting is as simple as “Liking” a video on the YouTube playlist page.
