Australians have probably seen Virgin Mobile's "All you can eat" campaign in online, TV and print ads, plastered everywhere lately. Virgin has come up with a competition to coincide with their campaign, giving you the opportunity to get your ad on TV.
In a clever twist, Virgin has half-filmed three TV commercials based around bizarre events happening at a 1950's American diner and they want you to write the endings. Yep, you guessed it, they're throwing in an awesome prize for the one they select as the most kick-ass.
You can storyboard the endings to "Mafia Kidnapping", "UFO Abduction", or "Police Getaway", and win the ultimate road trip adventure, starting with one-way flights for you and a friend to Cairns, $5,000 cash, a Canon HD digital video camera, a phone: and that's on top of them making your winning ad and it going on TV! There are also tons of runner-up prizes.
As a creative tool, they've designed a very nifty flash app that you can use to draw on top of the TV commercials to design, preview and share your entry. The more out there the entries the better! Entries close August 31.
Check out the 15-second TV ad stubs, the gallery of entries already submitted, and the very sweet prize right here! What Happens Next?
