During college football season, ESPN tends to air College GameDay commercials pretty frequently. I’ve always been envious that they haven’t really featured FSU in any of them so I definitely perked up when I read that College GameDay would be holding a vote to see where they would film a commercial.
Want to see your school in a “College GameDay” commercial? Well, here’s your chance to make that happen.
For the first time ever, ESPN will film a “College GameDay” commercial on a campus selected by fans. Starting today and running through May 2, fans can vote once per day for their university at GameDayVote.com via computers, smartphones or using Facebook (facebook.com/collegegameday). Fans can keep track of the leading schools throughout the promotion and share the contest with friends on various social platforms to drive votes for their university.
More than 120 FBS football programs will be included in the promotion. The commercial will be filmed this summer on the selected campus with real students and begin airing in the fall to promote the 2012 season of “College GameDay” Built by The Home Depot.
My idea for a FSU-themed College GameDay commercial:
You have Kirk Herbstreit, Chris Fowler, and Desmond Howard on Langford Green staring at the Unconquered statue. They banter about the statue a bit, saying it’s imposing but that it’s only a statue. They hear a noise and quickly turn around. There they see Lee Corso in the middle of Langford Green with his Seminole headgear, standing right next to Osceola and Renegade. Corso yells out something to the effect of “o yeah, want something really imposing?”. He then tells Osceola to charge (like he does right before kick-off) and the GameDay crew runs away (audio of the war chant comes on).
If FSU were to win, my guess is they definitely would involve Osceola in some way.
EDIT: Seems as though ESPN has taken down the College GameDay poll due to people runnings bots to increase votes. Well played, FSU fans.
