Manischewitz 'Celebrate Thanksgivukah' Project
Make sure everyone knows about Thanksgivukah this year!

Due October 10th, 2013 - The turkey’s in the oven. The big parade’s on the TV. And the smell of freshly cooked latkes is wafting from the kitchen. That can only mean one thing: Thanksgivukah is finally here! That special time when families gather around the warm glow of the menorah to give thanks as they nosh on pumpkin pie. That delightful day when old friends settle down to watch football after a lively game of spin the dreidel.

You know! Thanksgivukah? This year, Thanksgiving falls on the first day of Chanukah: Thanksgiving + Chanukah = Thanksgivukah. It’s a rare treat – the holidays won’t align like this for another 77,000 years, oy! It’s like some kind of Judeo Halley’s Comet. So don’t miss this chance to celebrate! Kick back with some kugel and stuffing while the President makes a spiel about pardoning the turkey. This November 28th is all about good friends, loving family and great food.

Project Objectives
The goal of this project is to create a 30-90 second video that introduces people to Thanksgivukah. Using one of the four concepts chosen during the IDEA phase, your video can feature Manischewitz products but its main purpose is to spread awareness of Thanksgivukah. It should feel less like an advertisement and more like a funny video you’d forward to your friends.

The sponsor will provide a bumper for the end of your video stating that Manischewitz is the official sponsor of Thanksgivukah. You may mention Manischewitz in your video but it is by no means required.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Manischewitz is a manufacturer of kosher food products, they do not make wine – that is actually a separate company. So please do not make reference to Manischewitz Wine in your Idea/Video.
