Assignment 4- The Inspiration-All Us!

8 Apr

Unlike the other assignments throughout the semester, there was no pre-existing inspiring images/videos. We decided to sell toilets…our own way. We wanted an original idea which hadn’t been done in that market before. We decided on “escaping reality” by daydreaming on the toilet in one add, and the for our internet/viral add we utilized the story of drug dealers flushing their stash down the toilet, promoting the large flushing capabilities of the toilet.

We want to be original, and especially funny.
