The Ad That Never Was.
I prayed to God to let me enter this contest. Last Monday I got together with my good friend Rachel and we put together this wonderful video for the Malibu Rum commercial contest on Youtube. Well, I edited this piece and tried uploading it to Youtube the day before the contest started - I was ready to win. I watched the other contestants and smiled at the fact that my commercial was fun, simply fun to the eye - and it sold Malibu to you - none of the other commercials did this. I upload to Youtube and enter the contest! I'm ready to win! It's a 25 thousand dollar prize, and I'm going to be walking out with it.
Alas, I find out that I cannot enter because my actress is 23. YOU HAVE TO HAVE PEOPLE AGE 25 OR OLDER TO BE IN A COMMERCIAL WHERE ALCOHAL IS PRESENT.
Let me make this clear - I lost my chances at 25,000 dollars, just because my actress was too young. Note to self, read fine print.
Needless to say I was sick to my stomach that whole day.
