Happy Halloween and Congratulations to our Almost Moon Jingle Contest winners!
Alright,people-time is up,put your pencils down,please! It's time to announce the Grand Prize winner of the very first LRG competition,The Almost Moon Jingle contest. To start,I want to say "thank you" to everyone who took the time and mental effort in writing and sending in an entry,plus a special thanks to those who were kind enough to mention this contest and/or link to it on your website. I truly appreciate your help and will let you know if and when I get to hold another one of these things again.
So,without further delay,our Grand Prize winner,who will recieve a free copy of Alice Sebold's The Almost Moon in her mailbox very soon is...Ms. Evelyn League!*pausing for applause and cheers* and here is her winning line:
"Alice Sebold made her Lovely Bones,
with readers both near and far.
Now,with the Almost Moon approaching...
Life's twists become most bizarre."
Congratulations,Evelyn and I hope you enjoy the book as much as I did. To enrich your victory a little bit more,we here at LRG would like to dedicate this old school American Express ad to you that has a great Halloween vibe to it,plus it stars one of the most popular authors of our time. From one great writer to another,this one's for you,Evelyn!:
Just like the Miss America pagent,we do have a few runners-up who well deserve their moment in the sun. First up is Naomi Shapiro,whose line was "...It's time to up the barre." and her favorite TV commercial is Slinky,a real classic. I think just about everyone has owned a Slinky at one time or another and why not,it's fun for a girl and a boy!:
Our next runner-up I only know as stigay,with the end line of "She's truly a shining star." I did try to find the Pantene commercial with Natasha Bedingfield's "Unwritten" song that stigay likes,but it was rather tricky. I was allowed to make a substitute so,here's some sweets to the sweet,courtesy of Tom Carvel:
Last but not least,our third runner-up is Caroll Crew who offered up this line"Her readers will sail from earth to the stars.". Unfortunately,I don't know what Caroll's favorite TV jingle is but hopes she finds this McDonalds commercial amusing and is not too freaked out by the most terrifying part of the ad,that ticklish Happy Meal! The commercial also features those great trick or treat buckets that Mickey D use to give away,remember those? They really need to bring them back:
Once again,thanks to one and all who did their part in making this contest fun and interesting. Congratulations yet again to all of our winners and as an extra special bonus,here a few more Halloween themed commericals for your amusement:
