If you've always wanted folks to know just how much you love Blue Bell ice cream, the Brenham-based company wants to hear from you.
Blue Bell will be shooting a new television commercial in October and they're offering one lucky ice cream lover the opportunity to appear as an extra. Blue Bell Country Club members 18 and older are encouraged to send in 20-second videos explaining why they should be chosen to appear in the upcoming commercial. The contest runs through Sunday, Sept. 21st.
“Blue Bell fans are creative and enthusiastic, so we are gearing ourselves up for some very entertaining videos,” said Carl Breed, director of marketing for Blue Bell in an email.
The winner and a guest will be treated to an all-expense paid trip to Brenham, home of Blue Bell ice cream, where the commercial will be shot next month. “It’s not something you do every day. Being on the set while we’re filming the commercial and ultimately seeing yourself on TV is a pretty big deal." Breed said.
