As the title suggests, this super creative commercial explores the things that peeps will do for a pack of rice snacks. It was surprising to see that peeps will go to great lengths to receive their prize in exchange of many stares, smirks, cheers and jeers. And I am sure that you are dying to know what kind of things that they will do to receive such reactions? Well, they were not asked to jump from a helicopter a few hundred feet above ground nor walk the wire from one skyscraper to another. What they did was to push the button a few hundred times until they reached zero to receive the delicious bag of freebies.
Oh, you’ll say that a few hundred times is nothing! It was easy, right? But how about a few thousand times? 5,000 perhaps? Will you still do it? You may say, ‘No way!’ but there were fun-loving peeps that will actually do it, and they did!
This clever ad was the brainchild of the ultra creative Australian-based advertising company, Clemenger BBDO. The hilariously cool peeps behind this ad agency came up with a vending machine that was wired with numerous hidden cameras to capture the determined faces of unknowing bystanders. These cool, competitive and fun-loving peeps are in it to win it!
Although you are up to hit the button 5,000 times, how about bowing down to the vending machine or to perform some routine exercise in front of everybody like no one is looking nor laughing at you? Will you still do it? Yup, others did and again, for the sake of free snacks. Watch the vid and enjoy!
Although this type of experiment was nothing new, it was still really funny that it warrants five thumbs up out of five and a few cartwheels for its fun aspect. But I wonder…if many peeps made a fool of themselves for a bag of Fantastic Delights, what will they you for a unit of Macbook or the a super cool gadget that everyone was talking about? Hmmmm…
