what if I just whistle the jingle?

Here's an email that was sent to our improv group [with my comments in red]:

I'm writing to you from Teamworks Media, a production company based in Chicago. We are coming down to UT Knoxville next week to film a series of national commercial spots for Old Spice High Endurance Body Wash. (Last year we were down there for a similar campaign, and had a blast!)

This campaign is searching for "America's Cleanest Comic," and I am looking for the three funniest guys on campus to tell clean jokes to the crowds tailgating at the football game on Saturday, Sept. 3rd. Each guy will get three commercial spots built around him, with the possibility of two more spots and a free trip to Vegas if he is indeed voted "America's Cleanest Comic."

We are looking for three outstandingly funny improv guys (who don't have to be students, by the way, [I'm in!] but should look like they possibly could be) [I'm out!] to mix with the crowd, do funny bits, and tell a clean joke [I'm back in!] while in a portable shower! (Swim trunks [I'm out!], robes, and rubber chickens [I'm in!] will be provided!)

There is no pay [I'm back out!], but it's a fun day and the guys get a lot of exposure and some good stories. I'm wondering if you may know anyone who is interested, or how I would best announce auditions (I will be holding them on Thursday, September 1st on campus).

The university is a great partner of ours, and we're looking forward to a fun couple of days. How do I find the funniest guys in Knoxville??

Thanks for you help... I look forward to hearing from you!

i'm sure if you mentioned this on air, you might be able to make a REALLY GREAT radio bit and promotional opportunity out of this. hype it, go down there with banner, be the official "cleanest" station in knox-boogie. could be huge!
