The Pixel Project Voters’ Choice campaign…..

The Pixel Project Voters’ Choice campaign came to a close on 30 June 2010 at noon EST with a grand total of 6364 votes and 1424 petition signatures.

We are thrilled to announce our Top Two Nominees: Alexander Skarsgard in first place and Jake Gyllenhaal in second.

Both gentlemen will be sent the results of both the voting and petition. Let’s hope either or both of them say “yes”to the 45-minute photo shoot-and-Public Service Announcement recording session for which we are petitioning!

In the meantime, all supporters will have to wait until the Mystery Celebrity Male Role Model Pixel Reveal fundraiser (to be launched later this year) to see if either Mr. Skarsgard or Mr. Gyllenhaal have agreed to come on board…

Overall, it’s been a great campaign and being that it’s the first time we have attempted this kind of campaign, we are pretty pleased with the voting turnout!

Here is the breakdown of the final results:

* Alexander Skarsgard – 2,301 votes, 36.2% and 663 petition signatures
* Jake Gyllenhaal – 1,668 votes, 26.2% and 239 petition signatures
* Hugh Jackman – 1,162 votes, 18.3% and 124 petition signatures
* David Tennant – 833 votes, 13.1% and 249 petition signatures
* Will Smith – 400 votes, 6.3% and 149 petition signatures

Team Alex really got out the vote—his vote and petition signature numbers continued to climb right until voting closed. Thanks for the outstanding effort everyone!

Team Jake also made a great push. After lagging well behind the front runner for most of the campaign, his numbers took a big jump in Week 5 and he continued to do well right to the end.

Yes Skarsdarlins’…We kicked tush!!!!
