Project Trafford: Snack Attack!

Gone were the days when snacking on potato chips was an uncool past time reserved only for those a little too rounded at the waist.

These days, snacking on just a LITTLE TOO MUCH potato chips can result in a very nice trip to a famous football stadium, far, far away.

Yup, you get to go to the home of the Red Devils, baby!

And when I am talking about far, I'm talking about a different time zone here. (:

If you have been following the development of Project Trafford, I reckon that you know what I'm talking about - Mr. Potato's latest competition, promising a free trip to Old Trafford, the home of the Red Devils, Manchester United!

The top 30 Football Point Collectors of this competition win a Total Football Tour to Manchester United inclusive of Stadium and Museum tour worth RM 15,000 each!

What's more is that the top 5 monthly collectors of Football points get collectors jerseys personally autographed by football greats such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Michael Ballack, Fernando Torres, Nani & Cesc Fabregas!

Find more details on the contest at the Mr. Potato website here!

Since when was eating chips at home ever this fun?

Mr. Potato and Man. U - Can you ask for more?

The contest is really simple! All you have to do is to just keep buying Mr. Potato and keep the proofs of purchases! The more you collect, the more you stand to win limited edition merchandise and also the free trip to Old Trafford! All for just eating and collecting Mr. Potato wrappers!

But I'm a poor, poor boy, who doesn't have all the money in the world to splurge on chips all day long... So what do I do?

But if you know me, I try anyway.



Didn't I say that I tried?

Click here for the first video!

And click here for the next scene!

We all tried! Watch it all!

Hamlet's Hero out.

Enjoy!

Competition still on huh? Well, Mr Potato is really hooking people onto its potato chips. Capitalism. Anyway, good luck for your competition in any case. If you win, bring something back for me from Man U. Red Devils rule!

Boss Stewie said...

HAHAHAHAHAA HILARIOUS!!!!

John said...

Potatoes are potatoes. and if they cease to be potatoes, this world would be no more. Your post reminds me of that philosophical state of mind I was in 3 weeks, 4 days, 13 hours and 2 minutes ago. Aggressively, we all defend the role we play. Agreed?

junwei said...

hahahahahahahaha its was super funny i liked the part where your father caught you

halobenzene said...

So.. you got any packs left from 7-11? I hungry le.

Kevin Chan said...

Hahah filming was a problem with people walking in and out all the time. The 7-11 was pretty empty when we arrived there, but as we started filming, people started coming in and out! And my dad like didn't want us to disturb the 7-11 guy so we had to like wait for the people to leave before we filmed each scene.

One man actually came up to us and told my dad that it really looked like a real robbery and asked my dad to stand outside so I'll look less suspicious!

I had a great time doing the vid overall!
