“We’re asking the public to recreate the iconic commercial in a novel way,” said Jesse Padilla, online marketing manager at Victory Auto Wreckers, “or better yet, come up with an entirely new commercial.”

In 1985, a TV commercial for Victory Auto Wreckers was made showing a man opening a car door, and the car door falls off. In 1991, WGN’s Dean Richards became the voiceover artist: “That old car is worth money!” To date, the iconic Chicago commercial has enjoyed a 30 year run and will continue to air across Chicagoland.

Once a week from Feb. 1 through March 28, a winning video commercial will be chosen, and its “producer” will receive $500.

Here’s how:

1.    Film and edit your commercial (two minutes maximum)
2.    Upload it to your YouTube channel
3.    Submit the link to http://www.victoryautowreckers.com/commercial/

Entrants must be age 18 or over to enter, and by entering the contest, entrants allow Victory Auto Wreckers full use of the video entry, winning or not, to be used for commercial purposes on Victory Auto Wreckers’ Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, website, etc.

“We are anticipating some very creative video entries,” Padilla said.
