Talk about taking your packaging to the next level. These cans sing!
What could you create if you had unlimited access to Pringles crisps and cans? That’s the premise behind a competition presented by Pringles (and brand owner Kellogg) and Gawker Media. Entries didn’t have to be a finished product. They could simply have been a photo, a sketch or a written account of the idea. The prize? A trip for two to New York City to attend Gawker Media's fourth-annual Silent Disco.
But to help fire up other contestants’ creativity, a group of guys from Brooklyn made a fully-functioning pipe organ. Their concept was inspired by the bone organ seen in the movie “The Goonies.”
Created by the multi-media art collective called Fall on Your Sword, this life-size “instrument” uses nearly 250 Pringles cans and combines recorded sound from the crisp cans themselves to emit a range of musical notes.
The contest deadline has been extended to Mon., April 21. Got an idea???
