The release of the band's Paul Brown-directed companion video to "Ghostflowers" coincides with a fan-generated video contest. In conjunction with SingShot.com, OTEP will offer their fans the chance to create personalized versions of OTEP's "Ghostflowers" video, with OTEP personally selecting the winner.
