One of the funny yet annoying ads during the Super Bowl was the Tide “Talking Stain” ad. The gist of the ad was that a guy on an interview had a stain on his shirt and the interviewer couldn’t concentrate on what the interviewee was saying because the stain was “talking” to him. The commercial was fairly original, but the stain had this annoyingly high voice while it spouted gibberish.
Tide has announced a contest where you film a spoof of this ad and you are entered to win some prizes. Among the prizes are a specially designed custom iPod. The contest is open to US residents only and ends on March 9th, 2088. For official rules, visit the contest website. In addition to getting all the rules and such, you can also see the ad that aired during the Super Bowl.
The website also allows you to download the stain voice as a ringtone, a stain desktop wallpaper, a stain buddy icon, and the stain mp3. I’m completely baffled why anyone would want to download these however.
