Manitoba Hal wins!

The votes are in for Ukulele Hunt’s Video of the Year 2010 contest, and our favorite Manitoba Hal has won a much-deserved victory.  He edged Bella Hemming’s “Play Guitar” (which is also excellent) by 11 votes out of 1225 cast.  The big surprise was that Jonsi and Nico Muhli’s “Go Do” came last with only 31 votes; I’d expected it to be one of the top finishers.  It was my second choice.  Maybe it was lots of people’s second choice.


  1. It’d be nice to think that Jonsi was lots of people’s second choice but I don’t think so. Ukulele players can be quite musically conservative.

    Yes, and maybe conservative in other, sadder ways as well. Still, it’s amazing to me that so few people voted for the video.
