Happy New Year!
The poll for the Narrow-minded Productions 2016 Video of the Year has closed, and the results are in.
The winner is Do Not Disturb featuring Briella Jaden.
251 votes were cast and the video took 108, or 43% of the total. Coming in second place was the Jackie Stevens video, Making Waves, which 68 people voted for, or 27% of the total.
I was following the response from when I first posted the poll, and Making Waves did in fact jump out to an early lead. With Briella having been in 4 productions last year, it was certainly possible that her votes could have been split, and a larger plurality might consolidate around one of Jackie’s productions. But as the votes came in throughout December, they all went to the first title released in 2016, Do Not Disturb.
Some additional stats, with all the votes combined Briella received 154, which is about 61% of the total. Jackie’s two videos gathered 97 votes, or 39% of the total. I like Jackie a lot, and both models remain very popular with their respective fan-bases.
Personally, looking back on last year, the video that was the most fun for me to put together was High Voltage. But I think the new location and crowded beach scenes from Making Waves made that one more exciting for viewers.
As for the winning video itself, Do Not Disturb benefits from a structured story about a woman who is awakened three times by solicitors at her front door: two salesmen and someone looking for a donation for charity. Each time, Briella answers wearing only a skimpy top, totally unaware how much she is showing. This builds to the eventual realization and subsequent embarrassment, which further leads to Briella getting a little turned on upon reflection. In addition, there’s a nice little epilogue with her partially stripping in the back seat of the car until she gets caught. It’s also fun to look back at Briella’s shorter hair at the time, and how she let it grow out by the end of the year. Overall, the wide range of her character’s reactions make this a fun and worthy recipient for Video of the Year.
Thank you to everyone who participated. I look forward to a happy, healthy and prosperous 2017.
