Socialites, we’re calling you to action one more time for our good friends at AXE. Here’s the premise for the very last part of the “Clean Your Balls” campaign: We challenge you to act out a prank with your friends (NOT BUSINESSES), using scripts akin to those in AXE’s prank call videos on YouTube.
We’ll provide you with the software necessary to record your phone call and then upload it to our blog. Since some states have laws against recording phone calls without consent, the person on the other line has to be in on the joke! Feel free to rehearse first or just wing it. We expect a few well-executed pranks, and a number of busts – which could be funny in their own awkward way.
So here’s how it works:
1. Use the script below as a basis for their prank calls.
2. Record your prank call directly on The Campus Socialite by clicking below on the Lexy recording widget. Put your “prankee” on speaker phone and holding the mobile device close to your computer’s microphone so both sides of the conversation are recorded.
3. After the call is recorded, follow @AXE on Twitter, and tweet a link to your prank call as an official “entry” using the hashtag #AXEPRANK.
4. AXE Detailers will be given out to certain participants each day, and a Grand Prize worth up to $200 will be rewarded to the funniest prank call at the end of the contest (Friday, January 28th).
So let’s make sure we’re clear on this: The party on the other end of the phone has to know what’s going on. Just get your acting shoes on and make sure it sounds as true to life as humanly possible.
And one more rule: Please don’t mention brands, celebrities or trademarked names OTHER than AXE. We’re trying to stay as legal as we possibly can here…you understand.
So without further ado, here is an axe video for some inspiration. At the very end of it all is your script, a sample prank call and the link to enter, so get to pranking!
P: Hey, what’s up? I got a random sports question for ya. Can you help me out?
P: Fantastic. So, I’m actually doing some volunteering for a college basketball team – I’m gonna be their ball boy/girl for a month.
A: (that’s awesome)
P: Yeah, it’s great and all, but I’m not much of a fan of basketball. I need some advice on how to handle these basketballs. The management told me that I need to make sure the balls are clean before practice and games, and that they’re warmed up before shoot-around. But I don’t know what that means. How do you clean balls?
P: Okay. So now they’re clean. The next thing they asked me to do is to keep them organized, do you think they’re gonna give me a box, a rack, or some sort of sack for these balls?
P: Okay. Where I’m from, we usually keep our balls in sacks. Is that uncommon here?
P: You’ve been really helpful…one last question: If they do give me a ballsack, is there a special way I should carry it? Like, do I keep them low, or sling ‘em over my shoulder?
A: (probable hang-up)
