    Contest Title:

    Washington Mutual Commercial

    Director's Notes:

    Pretend that a top agency requests that you audition for a national commercial. They email you: "Hi. This is Peggy Olson of Sterling Cooper Ad Agency. We’re casting a national Washington Mutual radio commercial and would like you to submit an audition. You will see in the script that there are three distinct roles of Banker, Customer, and Announcer. We are looking to cast three separate people, so please do not read or audition for more than one role. Please record one take of the following script (voice only, no music) and begin your audition by slating your first name, last name, “Washington Mutual Commercial” audition, and the role you are auditioning for. Thank you."

    Script:

    Banker: Hello, and welcome to First Universal Federal Bilk, I mean bank.

    Customer: Yes, I'd like to close my checking account

    Banker: Well, let's take a look. Oh, you have our interest checking. What seems to be the problem?

    Customer: I earned two cents last month.

    Banker: Well, too bad.

    Customer: I want more.

    Banker: Well, baby can't have dessert until he eats his vegetables

    Customer: What?

    Banker: Maybe you should lock up your money in one of our CDs

    Customer: No, I want interest, but I still wanna spend my money

    Banker: Well, you know I wish I could fly. I wish clouds were made of ice cream. I wish I didn't have issues with my mother. I wish...

    Customer: Just give me my money....please!

    Announcer: Make your money work harder with Washington Mutual's Platinum Checking Account. It offers one of the best interest rates around and unlimited access to your money. To open your Platinum account, visit any Washington Mutual Financial center today.

    Banker: I wish chocolate didn't go straight to my hips. I wish Fluffy hadn't run away.

    Announcer: Washington Mutual. More human interest. Restrictions apply. Ask for details. FDIC insured.
