The people at Coco Television need YOU.
We are looking for Irish people around the world to send a “Happy St. Patrick’s Day” video message back home to be included in this year’s coverage of the St. Patricks’s Festival Parade shown on RTE1.
All you need to do is record yourself on a mobile phone, digital camera or any video device and send to – firstname.lastname@example.org. It would be great if you could choose a backdrop that shows off your location to give us a sense of where in the world you are.
We do not want your clip to have any association with alcohol; your message must not exceed EIGHT seconds in duration and the deadline for submissions is Wednesday March 13.
You can save the lengthy bitter, booze-fuelled ones for us.

Bloemencorso is a spectacular annual parade of brilliantly imaginative, gravity-defying floats made from flowers (especially dahlias) at the small town of Zundert in the Netherlands.
The video shows the entire 2012 parade. It’s worth skipping through for a sense of the scale of the event.
