Contestants should tell their best jokes or make some one-of-a-kind pranks in their videos, which need to be less than two minutes long and feature all original content (that includes backup music for those who want to use it). Videos showing off high levels of creativity will have a shot at winning the $5,000 prize, storage-related or not.

Please upload videos to the Public Storage What a Joke! Contest tab on Facebook, or on the mobile-friendly contest page, by the end of the day March 19, 2018 for a chance to win!

The company will announce the finalists and post their videos to the Public Storage YouTube channel on March 23, 2018. Winners will be selected as fan favorites based on the most views by the contest deadline, 9 a.m. (PDT) on March 29, 2018.

Last month, two winners were awarded cash prizes for creating unique poems and videos about self-storage and organizing. Give them a watch here if you're ready to be inspired to organize your own space.

Help get people in the joking mood in time for April Fools' Day by sharing these contest details far and wide! And don't forget to follow Public Storage on Facebook and Twitter.

Company Information

We help customers in their time of need, whether moving, downsizing or storing for business. Public Storage was founded in 1972 with a single Southern California self-storage building. We've grown a bit since then, to more than 2,386 locations around the country, making us the largest in the business today and a member of the S&P 500. We offer self-storage options of all shapes and sizes and the same personal attention from on-site managers that we've been giving from day one. For stockholders, we are a real estate investment trust, meaning we distribute a large portion of revenue to public investors in the form of dividends. Learn more about Public Storage at
