The following is my actual proposal to @PopeyesChicken—Sponsor my 28th Birthday party. If you’d like to come, or just think this is a funny idea, please reply and retweet this URL to @PopeyesChicken: http://bit.ly/pmc6Lh
To Whom it May Concern, a potential viral video sponsorship opportunity.
Hi, my name is Daniel Kibblesmith. I’m a Chicago-based comedian, filmmaker, copywriter for Groupon.com and most recently appeared on the Bravo Reality Television Program ‘Millionaire Matchmaker’—partially at the behest of my usual sponsors, Groupon.
I am also a collosal fan of Popeyes Chicken. Wait, not fan—fanatic. I grew up eating Popeyes at least once a week, and continued to do so well into college.
Here comes the bad news; three years ago I began a more health-conscious, mostly vegetarian diet. Having altered my habits, and as part general lifestyle of increased fitness, I find myself eating Popeyes less and less. In fact, I eat it once a year, on my Birthday.
This Sunday is my Birthday.
At Kibblesmith.com, you can see a variety of videos I’ve created, as a sketch comedian working with Second City, as well as local Chicago start-ups such as TametheBear.TV, Newser.com and not the least of all, Groupon, where I serve as a copywriter and co-founder of the video department. I am also active on Twitter, currently achieving nearly 1,700 followers, largely in conjunction with my frequently re-run appearance on Bravo.
I would like to commission my own film crew to document my Birthday party, and I would like to humbly as Popeyes to serve as our food sponsor.
My loft-style apartment in the Wicker Park neighborhood of Chicago accommodates roughly 100 guests, with room for buffet style dining, and the nearest Popeyes location is a short drive away at the intersection of Damen and Fullerton. I propose a series of sponsored Tweets, not unlike partnerships other franchises have established with Chicago-based comedian (Please see this link for a prominent example: http://bit.ly/mOqGAf)
In addition to this, my Birthday celebration would be documented by a professional film crew, shooting simultaneously on 3 Canon T2i’s with onboard shotgun microphones. Effusive, honest and unscripted testimonials will be given about our love of Popeyes chicken. We’re in a position to handle all editing, graphics and post-production, and would love to even have Popeyes marketing representatives and franchise employees in attendance.
Please let me know. This may be an unusual proposal, but when it comes to advertising, we live in an unusual age. I am best reached at firstname.lastname@example.org, or my cellphone, (***)-***-****.
Thank you sincerely for your consideration,
