Royal Purple Makes History With The First Fan Created Commercial For Video Podcast

Think your car has what it takes to be in an online commercial? Well, now you can find out. Royal Purple is generating the first fan-created commercial to be broadcast through VOD Cars via Video Podcast available through a variety of mediums including iTunes.

What is a Video Podcast?

A Video Podcast is a web feed of video films created by anyone (including you) that is placed on the Internet for anyone to download. Once subscribed (VOD Cars is free) to the feed, the files are downloaded directly from the web automatically into your media player. Podcasting's essence is about creating content (audio or video) for an audience that wants to listen when they want, where they want, and how they want.

Why you want to win

Imagine making history by being the first star of a short film/commercial for the automotive industry. No million-dollar budgets, no Hollywood type film crews, no bossy directors, just you, your car, your vision, making the video you want to see. It’s what you want by you and you could be the first. Who wouldn’t want that? And, did we mention babes love winners? (Common on girls, show us your vision and bring the win home to the ladies side)

Contest Details:

Log on to check out the rules and simply submit your video using the link at the bottom of the page. Royal Purple and VOD Cars will select the best clip and cut it into an online commercial for Royal Purple. In addition to bragging rights, the person chosen will receive a Royal Purple Performance Pak and a $500 check. The contest will run for one month and starts Thursday, April 13, 2006. The winner will be chosen shortly after the contest closes.

What Royal Purple is looking for:

“What we're looking for is cutting-edge footage that communicates what we'd like to convey to consumers in a way that isn't tainted by our own internal view of our brand,” says Mark McFann, Royal Purple’s Director of Marketing and Communications. “We know we want to communicate our products performance aspects; What we don't know is how consumers visualize the performance they receive from our products and that’s what we are looking to see in this contest. The winner will provide everyone with a great, honest look at how our product performs for both them and their vehicle.”
