I hope you found this video funny. Roger Hughlett, Executive producer of the Washington Business Journal announced today (March 1st 2013) Social Madness returns: Are you ready? that the contest Social Madness is back for 2013. if you do Social Media for a company or an agency doing social media for a client you should read Roger Hughlett's post.

Social Madness is a competition for companies of all sizes who can continue to engage and grow their social media activities and is tracked over a period of time to determine the winner.

Some details from  Roger's post :

Social Madness offers the opportunity to showcase your company on social media. It will also help you gain exposure as you compete for bragging rights against companies in your own size category. Additionally, there is a $10,000 charitable donation that will be made on the behalf of each of the three national winners.
The nominations phase ends May 15, and the first round of local competition begins June 3. The winners advance to a national competition in 43 American City Business Journal cities, including Washington.
This year, categories will be based on the social following at the start of the contest, rather than on the number of employees. Scoring will be based on social engagement, not growth
