The Misunderstoods $5,000 winner

A dynamic duo from NYC calling themselves “The Misunderstoods” have walked away with the First Place prize of $5,000 dollars in Smule’s “On A Boat” video contest featuring their I Am T-Pain app created for iPhone. We’re proud that half of the Misunderstood duo is Acting Center student Michael Covino!

In addition to the cash, the duo have been awarded the highly coveted “Big Ass Chain” that will immediately elevate them to epic status in New York.

Congratulations to the fresh new faces of iPhone royalty for 2010. Expect to see these two performing their underground hit on Saturday Night Live sooner than later. Yep!
