Tiny McItchyFace? Ukulele Video Contest

This little character of YouTube fame it listed on Alistair Wood's Ukulele Hunt challenge to find the best ukulele inclusive video from 2009. This little guy has gone in for his world famous rendition of Jason Mraz's "I'm Yours" and is aptly monickered as Tiny McItchyFace. Go to to submit you FAB 5.


  1. Thanks very much for the mention, Jeff. It's certainly not one of my favourites this year, but it's impossible to ignore.

  2. So, someone put the kid in. Al, of course, can't stand
    the kid and he's not the only ukulele blogger to
    feel that way. He could have created a special
    award for the kid and kept him out of the contest. I predicted on Ukulele Hunt
    that if he were entered and the civilian world were to find out and start voting, the kid would
    run roughshod (putting it mildly) over any and all competition.

    As much as I like the lad, I'm Yours is not contest worthy (12 million views not withstanding). Gently Weeps is much better, but
    I would never have entered it as
    the kid doesn't need any more exposure.

    If I'm Yours makes the finals, I can't see anything stopping it (saving sanity). But, if that happens, the contest will have been hijacked and turned into something Al never envisioned. I can see him being gracious on-site about it, but I cannot imagine him being happy about it.

  3. It doesn't look like he'll make it. Only one nomination for him so far (for a different song). Perhaps people are over it now. Or, at least, ukulele people have had enough.
