The Humorous Video Contest, also referred to as ROBLOX 1st International Humorous Video Contest, was ROBLOX's first official video contest that started on July 13th, 2007 and ended on July 22nd, 2007 (with the results following close on the 25th). It was planned by ROBLOX staff clockwork, David.Baszucki, and former ROBLOX administrator stoecker.[1] The goal was to create an appropriate, unoffensive, humorous ROBLOX video that was comprised of –mostly– ROBLOX in-game play footage.[1]
