Mess With Sasquatch, Win a Trip to Vegas
Jack Link's Beef Jerky is out with another promotion giving film and advertising students a chance to create their own Jack Link's TV commercials. Called "Messin' With...? Student Film Contest" the offering invites students to create and produce a 30-second TV spot using Jack Link's Messin' With Sasquatch advertising campaign, launched four years ago, as their guide.
From September 1 through October 20, students can submit their videos to Jack Links. The winning submission will air on ESPN during the 2010 World Series of Poker Final Table in November. In addition, the winner will receive a Sasquatch-sized prize package worth $2,500 which includes a trip for two to Las Vegas at the Rio® All-Suite Hotel and Casino (um, there's better casinos there, people), two tickets to attend a World Series of Poker viewing party, an expense allowance, product and other prizes.
Sounds like a lot of work just to go to Vegas. It'd probably cost less and take less time to just book a flight and hotel or a weekend and have fun on your own.
Wait a minute. Are you serious, Jack Links? The "Learn More" link off your contest page is a link to a PDF of the press release? Lame. Very lame.
