    Viewer's Video of the Week -- I Bought A Piece Of Crap & How You Can Submit Your Video.

    Submissions always start with an email and a link to the viewer video on YouTube, like this one:

    Hi Dick and Leo,

    Here is my submission to the GizWiz titled, My Piece of ^&*(.


    Love your show. The Gadget Warehouse is my favourite part. Keep up the great work and the other fun stuff. 

    Steve.    Stephen Rabjohn

    See or hear this show: http://twit.tv/giz1432 (Goes live late 9/3/2013)


    We'd love to include your video in an upcoming Giz Wiz Show.

    Here's what we're looking for: Your home made Videos -- two to three minutes long - in the any of the following categories: 

    I bought a piece of crap! Did you buy something you ended up hating? We won't get you a refund, but we might be able to give a platform to vent your disappointment. Remember, "family friendly" language applies. 

    I Invented This! Did you invent something? (Or did a friend or relative invent something.) We can't market it for you, but we can help get the word out. Show us what it is, and how it works. Even if it's a prototype, you can get our (and the audience) reactions. 

    My Gadget Warehouse! Okay, so you don't have a warehouse. It doesn't matter. Just tell us about your favorite old gadget(s). When and where you bought it, and why you're still hanging on to it. 

    My favorite gadget of all time! Show us what it is, tell us what it does and why you love, or loved it! It can be something you just bought too. 

    Post them on YouTube and send our producer, Jason, the link! We'll do the rest. (Or possibly nothing, but that's unlikely.) Remember, videos should be just 2 to 3 minutes long, 4 MAX! Low production value is fine. Even welcomed! That way our stuff doesn't look bad by comparison. We've set the bar low. Don't trip over it. 

    NEW! NEW! NEW! If we select and show your video on The Giz Wiz you will now be awarded with some sort of prize. It's Leo's way to get rid of all the "crap from Sky Mall" he's collected. So there's one more (so-so) reason to send in your video! 

    All show submissions go to gizwiz@twit.tv
