Rattlesnake beer

Hey guys I am going to be making a commercial for Rattlesnake beer pretty much for free just to prove I can do it.

Do any of you have any ideas?

I have a DVX100 and as soon as the beer gets here I will have lots of friends who want to be in it.

You can see the product at www.rattlesnakebeer.com

If I can make this one count I can get paid for the next one.

Good idea! That's how I am getting started in my city. Doing free jobs for the first 1-2 commercials and then after that I start charging the big bucks basedon this demo reel:)

Working so far. Keep us posted.

"Rattlesnake beer, it brings out the rattlesnake in us all!"

"Get bit" - have two people, one who drinks a no named beer and one who drinks rattlesnake beer. Shots of the guy who drinks "name-brand" beer show him having bad things happen to him. Shots of the guy who drinks rattlesnake beer only has good things happen to him. "Getting Bit" has provided an antedote to "bad things" and provides good luck.

...just an idea off the top of my head...

I would come up with several ideas and present them to the company and find out which one they like best, whether you think it's the best or not...always good to have options. And, you will be unbelievably surprised to find what people like...

Good luck.

Twins! You gotta have some twins. They could be snakes or beers maybe.

Greatest beer commercial ever: http://www.traktor.com/ select 'Commercials' and then 'Miller Lite - Evil Beaver' at the bottom. Enjoy.

What? Wasn't even funny. I thought the other ones were okay, too.

Well, I think they're great. Many of those are Superbowl ads and they nearly all cracked me up. Does anyone know who did the EDS ads? I know it was contracted through Fallon marketing but I don't know who the production company was.

Alex, have you ever seen the commercial for this brand of tuna...I forgot the name....but it starts off where you see a bunch of grizzly bears grazing the grasslands and out of nowhere you see a hunter start charging one of the bears....he tries to tackle one....but right before he is able to, the bear gets up and starts doing martial art moves on the guy. The bear does all the moves straight out of a cheesy B movie. It was hilarious. There used to be a link for it on www.adcritic.com.

Thanks for posting the stuff from Traktor, though.

Nick, I think Traktor did that one. Notice the "Shark" ad on that site. It's the same guy pluging the same Salmon, but this time he went in to a great white's mouth to get it.
