I've attached some soundbites (see video clip) from Garcia from the press handout, where she says, "Whether you're an aspiring designer, a graphic designer, or an office fashionista, this is a great opportunity to show us your creative flair." How about if you're in marketing with an emphasis on packaging? Seems like that would make more sense than someone who wants to be the next Vera Wang.
You can find out more at www.pillpackmakeover.com,and the deadline is June 30th. The winner will be announced at next fall's Fashion Week. There's a bit of disagreement over first prize. The website and video say it's $10,000, the press release says only $5,000.
Finally, I'm going out on a limb here, but I'm going to guess the winning design will be pink.
WORRIED ABOUT MR. POTATO HEAD
If you'll recall, we've blogged about Disneyland's new stunt to promote its Toy Story ride--mailing out pieces of Mr. Potato Head one at a time to reporters. We haven't gotten a piece in days and, as we look at his eyes, ears, and one arm laying there, it's starting to creep us out.
FAVORITE PRESS RELEASE OF THE WEEK
Here it is: "Story Idea: Get Your Summer Butt in Shape!!"
Where did I put that summer butt? I remember storing it last fall but can't recall where.
The press release suggests we interview Extreme Makeover's Dr. Anthony Griffin about the "Brazilian Butt Lifta," which I don't think involves squats. I think it involves butt implants. I might buy some if it meant I never had to take a seat pad to a Dodger game again.
