Corny ad ready to feel love
WITH $50,000 up for grabs, two Bundaberg teenagers knuckled down to create the perfect advertisement.
Blake Jones and Richard Lawton decided to enter a Doritos competition and now need the community to vote online for their creation.
Richard said creating the advertisement had been no problem, with ideas flowing.
“We kind of bounced ideas off each other,” he said.
The advertisement, called A Packet Full of Love, has received great feedback.
“We were so proud of it,” Richard said. “We have even had positive feedback from people we don't even know, so that is a plus.”
Richard said they needed votes to gain a wildcard entry.
“Hopefully we make it through to the wildcard part,” he said.
He said the commercial only took a few hours to set up and film and a few hours to edit.
“The hardest part was finding people to get involved,” he said.
“All my friends were in it and they contacted people and asked them to be in it as well.”
Richard said the commercial-making had sparked future aspirations.
“I have become more interested in it,” he said.
“Since we started, the advertising type of career seems like a good way to go.”
This is not the first time the duo has put together an advertisement.
“We did it last year and had some good ideas but didn't have the equipment,” he said.
“But this year we have been able to use some school equipment.”
People can view and vote for the advertisement at www.doritos.com.au .
Voting closes tomorrow at 9am.
“You can vote five times a day,” Richard said.
Tomorrow at 10am Richard and Blake will find out if they made it to the wildcard section.
“I'm really excited to find out,” Richard said.
“I don't know if the work we have done will be enough.”
