I was talking to someone on Twitter the other day about the DirectTV commercials... Are you even aware there ARE DirectTV commercials? Let me ask you another way. Know about the tiny giraffe commercials?
Yeah. Now you're with me.
We were saying how interesting it is that the commercials do nothing to make me want DirectTV. But by God, I want that giraffe!!
There's a website called Petite Lap Giraffes from Russia where there's a supposed webcam on the tiny giraffe farm, claiming they are genuine and all about what they eat and how they like bubble baths in purified water. My 21 year old son was determined. I think he would have gone all the way to Russia to get one.
Are they real? (<---click there to find out)
No matter! I still love the commercials...what a buzz they've caused!
Goes to show what you can do with a little ingenuity and a fresh idea, huh? What about your stories, your characters, your plotlines? I think it's all in the fresh twist. After all, giraffes have been around since the Ark, we've seen them forever, but shrink one down on TV and the whole world goes wiggy for them.
Now, go make your own Petite Lap Giraffe and set the world on fire!!
