Stormy fall into winter and Gieco commercial ideas
Well, storm six thousand fifty-three is on the way. They say we will have a foot of snow overnight. Time for me to move to South America. Of course then would have the hot weather and the Guerrilla fighters to complain about or get killed by. Hmm. Well, maybe I’ll stay put, the snow and cold has not killed me yet!
This was me screwing around trying to think up my own Gieco Commercial. Sometimes I get a little stupid when I’m brain storming stuff. But I liked this one…
Gieco Commercial Idea:
Two women working in a cubicle. The first woman just had an Email that tells about Gieco. The monitor is in the background showing the Gieco Gecko.
First Woman: “Huh… Fifteen minutes can save you fifteen percent on car insurance.”
Second Woman: “Yeah… Everybody knows that.”
First woman, taken aback a little: “Yeah? Well, do you know why the chicken crossed the road?”
Second Woman looks confused:
Scene shifts. A group of chickens hanging around at the side of the road. They are all goofing around, pushing each other playfully, like grade school friends. Clucking and talking.
Chicken One: “I don’t know… I don’t see anything over there that looks any different to me.” He glances up and down the road nervously. Smiles at the other chickens. Glances across the road where everything appears lush and green.
Chicken two, kind of nerdy: “They say the barnyard over there is lush and green… Filled with grain and water troughs everywhere.” Gets excited as he talks. All the other chickens look at him and begin nodding in agreement. “And no one ever disappears,” he adds. Everyone clucks nervously, bobbing their heads.
Chicken One licks his lips: “Gee, I don’t know fellas.”
Chicken Three: “They say you never know ’til you try.” Glances across the road.
Silence holds for a beat.
Chicken One Laughs nervously. Smiles: “Yeah… Okay.” He looks up and down the empty road. Nothing but silence greets him. “Well, here goes.” He smiles and darts out into the road.
The other chickens stare in wonder, but their faces change fast as the sound of an engine building comes to them. Their eyes widen in fear. A wind whips their feathers as a vehicle roars by, and they close their eyes. A split second later Chicken Three opens his eyes.
Chicken Three: “Oooohh… That looks bad.”
The other chickens are all nodding and clucking.
Scene shifts to black screen with announcer over.
Announcer: “Fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent on car insurance.”
A new cover for Zombie Fall which is being published in an anthology soon. I tried to post this image to FB but it came out horrible. Don’t really understand why, but it looks okay in the book and here.
Okay. That’s it for this week. Check out my books! Visit my sponsors too. I’ll be back tomorrow…
