Alka-Seltzer Celebrates Embarrassing Moments With Facebook Contest
We all have one of those stories. You know, the one where a simple miscommunication turns into something strange, embarrassing or hilarious. Enter Alka-Seltzer, the familiar plop, plop/fizz, fizz brand that wants us to know that while it's all well and good to tell hilarious stories, those stories can lead to a certain degree of heartburn, upset stomach or headache.
Acknowledging both the joy is telling and hearing about these stories as well as the reactions they can cause, the brand, today, announced the launch of its Said/Heard Mishaps Contest on Facebook. The contest gives entrants the opportunity to share their miscommunication experiences for a chance to win big.
The contest features the "Speedy" character who will urge consumers to enter the Said/Heard Mishaps Contest. Through February 25, 2011, consumers will have the opportunity to enter by visiting the brand's Facebook page and sharing their funny miscommunications mishap.
The grand prize winner will receive a complimentary trip for two to New York City to star in an Alka-Seltzer online video featuring their entry. The online video will premiere on the Alka-Seltzer Facebook page and the winner will also receive a $5,000 cash prize.
