New TV from Colle+McVoy for the Minnesota Millionaire Raffle. It asks the question, “What would you do with a million dollars?” Yes, that’s the same question every lottery has asked since the dawn of man. We imagine an early caveman probably asked it of his fellow cavemen, which resulted in a head scratch, a grunt and a gruesome bludgeoning.
These spots, however, veer slightly from the typical “get me a gold-plated toilet and a new husband” kind of response. Nice animation and playfully absurd scenarios. Not sure they would make us any more (or less) likely to play, but they’re fun to watch.
First Carnival Cruise Lines launched giant beach balls onto the streets of Philadelphia. Then they built the world’s largest piñata as verified by Guiness Book of World Records. The piñata stood six stories tall and held 8000 pounds of candy. The stunt reportedly drew over 10,000 people. The crowd had a great time for about 20 minutes, then went on a sugar-fueled rampage before going home with bad tummy aches.
