    To help remind growers to break the link between mummy nuts and overwintering navel orangeworm (NOW), the Almond Board of California (ABC) created a parody song that’s sure to be an “orchard smash.”

    It’s The Mummy Shake — listen now (lyrics here) and submit a video of your family dancing along to this “orchard smash” for a chance to win a $500 Amazon gift card.

    How to Enter: Video Specifications

    Create a video with family dancing – and, if desired, singing – to The Mummy Shake. You can film this video anywhere, though an orchard backdrop is encouraged.

    Entry videos must be at least 30 seconds in length (approximately a verse and a chorus) and up to the duration of the full song.

    Entries will be judged based on enthusiasm, creativity and composition.

    How to Upload Your Video

    Entrants have two options when submitting a video:

    • Get Up and Dance: Don’t worry about singing; just get out in the orchard and show us your moves and/or lip-sync the lyrics. We’ll add the audio to your video.
    • Sing-Along Style: Get out in the orchard, play the Mummy Shake video and sing along with the lyrics.

    Submit entries in one of two ways:

    Upload the video in .MP4 or .MOV format to this ABC webform

    • Make sure to include the contestant’s name and email address in the file name.

    Post the video on the Almond Board of California Facebook page

    • Include the hashtag #MummyShake in your post to ensure your video is considered for the $500 Amazon gift card.

    The contest runs until 11:59 p.m. PT on Friday, November 20.
