Three friends from Alden, Minnesota won $2000 when their video was selected as a finalist Sunday night on ABC's America's Funniest Home Videos.

The trio submitted the video three years ago, and didn't expect to hear back after they were initially told that the process would take a while. That all changed when they finally got a call from AFV this past November telling them that their video had been chosen, and that they'd be making a trip to California.

Here's the story and their video from Rochester's ABC 6 News:

Congrats to Mallory Geesman, Lexi Jahnke, and Renae Linn from Alden, Minnesota (about 13 miles west of Albert Lea).
