Who would have thought that scooping the poop would rise to a whole new level and become one of the fastest growing business franchises around?
Not me. Go figure.
Pet Butler is just one of those services and currently provides poop patrol in more than 90 metropolitan areas in 26 states.
They just announced a contest and I thought you might have a little fun with it–grab the details here:Pet Butler (PDF).
Anyway, the Pet Butler Jingle Contest is inviting individuals, duets, and trios to compose and sing their own Pet Butler
jingle for a chance to win the grand prize of $2,500 and Internet fame.
What you need to do is create a 60-second video showing up to three people performing a jingle about Pet
Butler’s professional pet waste cleanup service.
The top four entries will be posted on the Pet Butler website on June 6, 2008. Site visitors will then vote for their favorite jingle. Winners will be announced July 28, 2008.
In addition to the grand prize, there will be a number of prizes for the top four finalists and every person who logs onto the site to cast a vote can also enter into a sweepstakes for the chance to win a thousand dollar gift card to become “poop-free” via Pet Butler’s yard cleanup services.
Sounds like a deal to me–if you live in their service area but maybe it can be a gift for a friend–or one of those neighbors who never seems to clean up.
The company is going crazy with puns and other silly slogans–but it probably is a job requirement. I mean, just how serious can you stay when you are cleaning up day-in and day-out?
“We’re really looking forward to seeing how creative people can get, and how much fun these jingles can be,” said Matt ‘Red’ Boswell, CEO (Chief Excrement Officer) of Pet Butler. “And with the online voting, we’re opening this contest to the world to cast their vote for their favorite jingle about Pet Butler and our service.”
All jingle entries must be “family friendly” and include the following: the Pet Butler name (at least three times) and the phrases “America’s pet waste cleanup service,” “800-Pet-Butler,” and “petbutler.com.” There are also a number of optional phrases such as “Got Poop? We Scoop,” “picking up where your pet left off,” or “we’re #1 in the #2 business” that can be used in the jingle.
All of the necessary information can be found in the official contest rules (PDF).
There is no charge to enter and entries can be submitted by e-mail or mail. Entries must be 60 seconds or less and recorded using a DVD or CD. All entries must be accompanied with a completed official entry form to be considered.
E-mailed entries can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. Mail entries can be sent to Pet Butler Jingle Contest, 6835 Winston, Frisco, TX 75035. Deadline for all entries is May 15, 2008.
Good luck and let me know if you enter!
