'Who Deserves Excedrin the Most?' Video Project
Bring a 'Headache Inducing Situation' to life.
Staff Pick

Due April 1st, 2013 - Stuck on a road trip to Grandma’s with a backseat full of kids who forgot their indoor voices at home?  Spent 7 hours typing up a document only to have your computer go on the fritz and lose everything?  Yep, it’s all fun and games until someone gets a headache. Thankfully, for the past five decades, people have been able to turn to Excedrin® Extra Strength to relieve their headache pain. Excedrin® Extra Strength is a combination product – acetaminophen/aspirin/caffeine – that delivers temporary relief of minor pains and aches due to headaches. 

Headaches are painful and can turn life’s daily little stresses into colossal struggles.  However, when it comes to headache-inducing moments (once the Excedrin® Extra Strength kicks in), all you can do is look back on them and laugh. 

This is precisely why Excedrin® Extra Strength is turning to YOU to tap into your personal experiences and creative brainpower to create content about a, relatable, headache-causing moment with which others will identify.

Project Objectives
The goal of this project is to create clever, insightful and relatable 60-second videos around one of the 16 headache inducing situations below.  Videos should showcase one of the numerous headache-inducing situations that people encounter every day; the focus of the video is not about treating headaches or the details of the product, but more about situations that might make someone reach for Excedrin® Extra Strength.  People don’t necessarily like talking about their headaches, but they do like talking about the situations that cause them.  Remember, these videos are NOT intended to laugh at people’s pain but to show clever and relatable headache-causing moments at which we can all laugh. The situations should be tastefully humorous (think smart humor), something you would feel comfortable sharing with your family or boss.

1. Drivers with Kids in the Backseat
