    Hey everyone. I'm in my film making class right now with about 1 hour 30 min of class left. We need to film a commercial, something we hope to be funny, and at least one minute long.

    So my question is this... does anyone have any ideas? It has to be "school appropriate," at least one minute long, and hopefully funny.

    Our current idea. A Geico commercial. Those Geico car insurance commercials where two guys are talking, and at the end, someone at random goes "I have good news, I just saved a bunch of money by switching to Geico." But we can't think of a scene to film. Something that can be done easily on campus without props and stuff....

    Any ideas?

    EDIT: I really thought this one was silly:

    I think we have to see other people, but there is good news, I just saved a bunch of money by switching to geico.

    Your * died in a terrible crash, but there is good news, I just saved a bunch of money by switching to geico.

    We have to amputate your *, but there is good news, I just saved a bunch of money by switching to geico.
    Substitute * with anything.

    they suck but they are better then nothing.

    Hmmm... the "we have to see other people" can come out pretty funny with some effort. Thanks for the suggestions...

    @Mr. Mulder
    Talking boobies would be kinda hawt, but I'm not sure about funny.

    @Barbarossa
    Can you stretch that to a minute long?

    I think I found a better idea overall, we're thinking about re-doing this commercial (without the animals):

    I think the commercial is funny, but it might be hard reenacting it with humans. But if you guys can figure it out go for it.

    So... uh... boobies that talk.... and uh... tell jokes.... uh... about boobies?

    Brilliant! Let's film.

    Wait, I just remembered I don't have boobies, and my group partners are guys. Where am I supposed to get boobies from?

    @F1
    Yeah it will be harder, we're gonna give it a shot.
