Sasktel is looking for a TV commercial idea it is due April 23rd, 2004. I thought this might be a good place to kick some ideas around.

Visit http://www.sasktel.com and click on the "You Can Story" link in Hot Products, or email mailto:youcan.story@sasktel.sk.ca

SaskTel's site:

"If you have an interesting true story of how our technology made a difference in your life or how you were empowered by the technology - we want to hear about it. Fill out the form below to enter your story into our You Can contest. If your story is selected, we'll turn it into a TV commercial and/or print ad. "


The scene opens with small children setting up a lemonade stand. The bang together some cardboard into a small stand. A SaskTel van drives buy and the driver pulls out a cell phone and makes a call. We overhear his say on the phone, "It looks like there might be an opportunity in refreshments on 12th Street."

Next, a trailer pulls up across the street. The wall of the trailer flips up revealing a counter-top and a large sign "Free Cell Phone with each glass of lemonaide".

The slogan "SaskTel limiting entrepreneurs through diversification".

The slogan could use some work.


open scene: me getting called by SaskTel's crack telemarketing team, getting pissed off then sitting down and writing them this "You Can" commercial.

"I was empowered by the technology over 10 years ago, and I moved to Saskatoon last year. After I got here I was hooked up with Shaw High Speed, since then I have been bothered by SaskTel telemarketers multiple times, each time I advise them to remove me from their calling list, and each time they make up an excuse about multiple call centers and assure me that I will not be bothered again.

So how's your technology working? I thought it was supposed to ensure connectivity, and redundancy, and organization. I guess SaskTel still has a long way to go. P.S. You can STOP calling me now... "

close scene: me clicking the send button and then the phone ringing and me answering "Hello", "Hello this is SaskTel calling..." then me going "AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH"
