SmartStop Self-Storage Video Contest Runner-Up Shows How ‘Life Happens Outside the Box’

This video by Sammamish, Wash., resident Samuel Wolfe was named one of three runners-up and awarded $1,000 in a video-commercial contest sponsored by SmartStop Asset Management LLC, which operates 118 facilities in Canada and the United States. “Life Happens Outside the Box” draws parallels between the contents kept inside self-storage units and the evolving life stories of tenants.

SmartStop received nearly 40 entries for the contest, “each demonstrating its own unique cleverness and imagination,” said CEO H. Michael Schwartz. You can view other winning videos on SSTV, including one in which a couple of tweens who bust rhymes about their need for storage and another that reveals where pirates hide their booty. Enjoy these entertaining and creative contest entries!
