Mountain Dew Commercial
On a random day in 2007, I was contacted by the marketing team of Mountain Dew. They had found my YouTube video of two clay dudes dancing to Ice Ice Baby. Yes, I'm random.
Well, they offered me 7500 to lease it for their commercial for 7 months. Uh, duh. Yes! Seven months later, they contact me again, offering me 2500 for 2 more months. Uh, duh, YES!. So, 10K later, I'm laughing all the way to the bank that they have used my AWFUL claymation for their commercial - which, by the way, aired a LOT!
The morale to the story - if you have a random thought to do something, DO IT!
