Microsoft Looks For Bing Singers, Offers $500

Continuing its multimillion dollar marketing campaign for Bing, the company's new "decision making engine," Microsoft has launched a contest that challenged users to come up with the best Bing jingle, or "Bingle."

If you want the chance to win a $500 American Express gift check, you can submit a video response to the sample video shot by the two unnamed Bing interns below.

From the two video responses already submitted, we can tell there's going to be a lot of sub-par submissions. That said, if we had to choose between the two, the one embedded below is the less annoying and more amusing of the two.

Click here for the official rules. You'll need to respond to the video on this page to enter your own jingle.

Bingle Contest

He likes to Bing it, Bing it!

    If Microsoft is smart they'll hire a viral video or something.

    LOL, so Microsoft like all the other big companies out there pay hundred of thousands of dollars to publicists to come up with a good jingle but now they are paying "$500 American Express gift check". I think they can pay alot more.

    Bing was a decent name.

    But sorry, Bingle doesn't sound too great (no pun intended lol)
