Clicksy Awards: Highlights
Heidi Klum :: Robert Erdmann/SI

Yesterday, we unveiled the voting for the Bizarre Stories of the Year. Today's topic in the 2008 Clicksy Awards is "Highlights." We're honoring the best of the best in categories such as "Blogosphere Moment of the Year," "Best Rick Roll," "Best Banned Commercial" and "Best Sports Commercial." The nominees in that category are a) The men's Olympics basketball commercial that used Marvin Gaye's rendition of the national anthem b) LeBron James' suggestive sneaker commercial with Nicole Scherzinger of the Pussycat Dolls and c) Heidi Klum's Guitar Hero commercial. Now, some of you might be saying that Guitar Hero isn't a sport, but around here, in the Hot Clicks universe, video games and pro wrestling count as sports. So, stop what you're doing, click this link to the Highlights of the Year, and vote. Then send the link to your friends and get them to vote. Then, check out our Hot Clicks Facebook page for the best Heidi Klum video ever.
