The finalists for the best independently produced Yamaha boating video are "Fish" and "Falling for a Yamaha," and the winner is now in the hands of Yamaha boat and WaveRunner online followers.

Online now on the Yamaha Boats and Yamaha WaveRunners’ Facebook pages are the two finalists from the Yamaha Escape from the Ordinary contest hosted on Poptent.net.

“We wanted to see videos that are entirely different than anything else we’ve done in the past, and the Poptent community responded as hoped,” Yamaha WaterCraft national marketing manager Bryan Seti said in a statement.

“By not letting the creators use Yamaha products, boats, docks or anything else that has been featured in past Yamaha spots we pushed hard for fresh and original thinking,” he added. “Choosing two finalists proved to be a tough decision, and we are anxious to hear which video our online followers like best.”
