Family video wins 170th birthday prize

[video width="848" height="480" mp4=""][/video]TO celebrate The Herald’s turning 170 today, we gave our readers an opportunity to win a luxurious night for two at Pumba Private Game Reserve by sending in birthday wishes for the newspaper.

The Herald received entries via Facebook, Twitter and e-mail from all corners of the globe.

Paul Chambers sent his birthday wish from London via YouTube.

Others took a more amusing approach and sent in memes to celebrate the big day.

Cupie Howse Munro’s meme via Facebook stated: “They say only the good die young. I guess that makes you an old bad ass.”

But there has to be a winner and in the end, the newsroom opted for a video produced by the Pillay family who live in Hunters Retreat.
