We mentioned this yesterday that Brandon Foy had made a fan video for Windows Phone 7 that became rather popular and even attracted the attention of Microsoft's Windows Phone team. Microsoft was so impressed that they used the video as the introduction to the Day 2 Keynote Presentation at MIX11.
Joe Belfiore, Microsoft's VP over Windows Phone Program Management, also tossed out a challenge to fans of Brandon's work. Should the video pass 200,000 views, Microsoft will use the video as a television ad.
We bring this up again because a) the video looks good and b) the video count needs a little help. Plus it's always cool to see fan-based work make it to the big stage.
In just over 24 hours, the view count is hovering around 33,300. So spread the word, tweet your friends and let's help Brandon's video make it to a television near you. You can find the video here or click on the "Watch on YouTube" link in the embedded video above.
