    Default Need ideas for funny TV commercial

    Tomorrow I need to pitch an idea for a 30 second commercial to make as apart of a project for uni.

    Currently I am lacking ideas.

    I am wanting to go along the lines of a humorous advertisement outlining the consequences of not using the advertised product/service.

    I guess something following this type of structure, but probably not as raunchy.

    Any ideas will help!!!

    Cheers

    You want us to give you an idea so you can pitch it as your own, do you want us storyboard it for you as well?

    Besides that, you gave us no idea what the product is, what the brief is or anything.

    Come on man... put in some effort. I've written commercials before, I do a lot of writing, and I know it's not easy, but posting a thread on a forum is not the answer.

    Grab a pencil and a notebook and get to work. You're not trying hard enough.
