Jack Link's Puts 'Messin' With' campaign in students' hands
Jack Link's® Beef Jerky, the No. 1 U.S. meat snack brand, is giving film and advertising students a chance to create their own Jack Link's TV commercials. The “Messin' With…? Student Film Contest” invites students to create and produce a 30-second TV spot using Jack Link’s award-winning Messin' With Sasquatch advertising campaign as their guide.
“Since its introduction in 2006, Jack Link's Messin' With Sasquatch campaign has achieved cult-like status and fans across the country have posted thousands of parody and tribute videos online,” said Jeff LeFever, director of marketing, Jack Link’s Beef Jerky. “The Messin’ With…? Student Film Contest asks film students to put their own unique spin on the original ‘Messin’ With’ theme without using Jack Link’s brand icon, Sasquatch.”
Video entries may be submitted via e-mail (less than 20MB) to firstname.lastname@example.org beginning Sept. 1 through Oct. 20, 2010. All entries will be available to view online. At the end of the submission period, a panel of judges representing Jack Link’s Beef Jerky will choose one winner that exemplifies the spirit of the “Messin’ With” campaign in the most original and creative way.
The winning submission will air on ESPN during the 2010 World Series of Poker Final Table this November. In addition, its creator will receive a Sasquatch-sized prize package worth $2,500—including round-trip airfare for two to Las Vegas, a two-night stay at the Rio® All-Suite Hotel and Casino, two tickets to attend an exclusive World Series of Poker viewing party in Los Vegas to view the winning TV spot live, an expense allowance, product and other prizes.
The official contest rules and regulations are available online.
