The Electrolux Man and Famous Jingle are Back to Give Away Prizes!



Edit November 28: Good news! This contest has been extended to December 11, 2011! You have more days to come up with a good video that may win you a kitchen showcase :) Please do join and put this blog's name as your referral to also win a P500 restaurant gift certificate from me.

Remember the Electrolux salesman who sells vacuum cleaners from door to door? If you were a child of the '70s or '80s, you'll also probably recall a TV commercial jingle that goes: "I'm gonna knock on your door, ring on your bell, tap on your window, too!" Listen to it here ...



Sounds familiar now? Well, Electrolux is bringing this song back in time for the Christmas season for its  (Knock on Your Door) KOYD Video Challenge. The jingle is fun, catchy, and will have you singing along too. Have some fun by singing your own version by yourself or with family and friends and make it into a video. Then, share it to everyone and, who knows, it could even become viral! Check out a sample video here.

If you win, the new Electrolux man will knock on your door, no longer to sell you a vacuum cleaner, but with special Christmas surprises just for you :)


Here's how you can make that happen:

STEP 1 Like The Little White Book page on Facebook and click on the Knock on Your Door Video Challenge tab. Listen and learn the Knock On Your Door jingle. You can also find it on the ElectroluxPH YouTube account as well as electroluxman.com for download.

STEP 2 Come up with your very own rendition of the jingle in the most creative way you can think of. Then take a video of your production and upload the file along with your full name, address, email address and contact number at www.electroluxman.com. Note that you can only upload mp4 or 3GP files. Submission of entries will be from November 3 2011 to November 30 2011. Video entries must be of a minimum length of 30 seconds and a maximum length of 2 minutes.

STEP 3 Watch out for the Top 10 videos that will be uploaded in the Knock on Your Door Video Challenge tab on Facebook from December 2, 2011 to December 11, 2011.
