So one of the 5 will be chosen by ITTF? Best ones imo are TTD and Katherine. I'm just glad TTD made a more manly video than the others.

Congrats Dan for making it. Your entry was definitely worthy. IMO Matt and Rich's video should've made it no questions. The way the whole system was organized was terrible. Crap videos made the cut while good videos did not.Let's consider what the ITTF said about video entries: What you need is imagination, a creative mind. ....showcase table tennis in its best image and form.A Hard Day's Practice -- somewhat interesting, but what was up with the intro full of people missing easy shots? If this video were to win it all, I sure hope ITTF cuts that part out, missing basic warm up forehands does not showcase table tennis in its best form. Don't Yell too Loud - seriously? It would be a huge laugh if at the Grand Finals they show an UNEDITED video of untalented little girls playing novice level ping pong and being handed bottles of drinks by parents during a time out.... ?!?!?! No creativity, surely doesn't showcase TT in its best form.Life of a Coach - a guy watching ping pong on Youtube and feeding multiball....really interesting!!!!! No. The guy probably cheated as well considering how he accrued so many votes so fast. If the ITTF is going to make such a high stakes contest, they should have real people watching and assessing the entries. Some of entered videos (by Adam Consolo) were clearly not made by him whatsoever, they were ripped straight off a TV show or something. Considering there aren't that many entries, the administrator of the contest should've considered narrowing the list to 5 and having a small group or committee associated with the contest pick a winner from there.
