I Need an Idea...

First, I'm going to tell you something cute. Every afternoon, the tots take about a two hour nap. Yay for me! That is when I illustrate. Now, Miss Peach has figured out that Mommy "draws on her computer" when she sleeps. After her nap, she comes downstairs and she always wants to see what Mommy drew.
"I want to learn to draw on your computer."
Something tells me this is going to take more than an etch-a-sketch:P

Second, I am kind of a schemer. I know I have mentioned that the Bro is a big time editor. All this means is that I have access to awesome equipment. Long story short...I need an idea for a Dorito's commercial...anyone? I do have one total winner of an idea, but I don't have a ski mountain to shoot it on:P Ideas...anyone?

  4. They don't call you Nap Warden for nothin'.

    Commercial: Camera zooms into a mom a mom working at her computer. Camera changes to children napping in their toddler beds. Camera back to mom at the computer. She's working. She picks up a bag of Doritos. She pauses . . . but she can't resist. She bites into one. CRUNCH. Camera changes to wide-awake smiling kids standing next to Mom at the computer. She sighs, and gives them each a Dorito. All three crunch away.

  5. I don't have any ideas for your commercial, but we once called the 800 number on the back of the Doritos bag and just crunched into the phone...

  9. 'Dorito's, they bring the weasels out of the woodwork'. Enter scenes of abandoned computers, video games, cell phone, television and the whole gang(teens to toddler) attacks the bowl of Doritos on the kitchen counter. Hope this helps.

  10. Hmmm. My 3 year old gave up her 2 hour nap a few months ago, cold turkey. I don't know if I want to talk to you anymore...

    :)

    Brainstorming about Dorito's... Things that come to my mind:

    messy fingers

    trails of crumbs leading to a bag hidden behind the couch, which I then (hides face in shame at the truth of this) open up and eat the remaining, slightly stale, Dorito crumbs from because OMG I love Cool Ranch Doritos!

  11. My son always sees me writing on the computer. One he learns to read, he'll have a much easier time with 'practicing.'

  12. Hey Sara Palin needs a job, maybe your idea can involve her on this Ski Mountain with her hunky husbands enjoying the zesty taste of Dorito's..OK i know stupid????

    And I think the Super Nanny would be jealous if she knew how long you were able to get the kiddy's to take a nap..

  13. Sarah Palin and hubby hunting moose. No moose, so they decide to have a snack...crunch...next thing they know, mooses (???) all trying to get one out of the bag.

    (I wanted to say BANG, BANG next, but don't think that's a good idea in the commercial.)

  14. How about a bunch of couples in a childbirth class, the leader sends them on a break and all the pregnant women try to tackle each other to get the last bag of Doritos in the vending machine?

    Not that I would have done such a thing while pregnant, of course.

  15. How 'bout three kids (ages 6, 4 and 16 months) jammed together in three car seats in the back seat all screaming and loud and bugging each other and then crazed lunatic mother driver searches in her diaper bag on passenger seat and throws back into the chaos three snack bags of Doritos. Silence. Crazed lunatic mother breathes a sigh of relief. Three crazed lunatic children happily crunching away and SILENT.

    Now THAT'S a beautiful ending....

  18. We love Doritos. My son Jack hates to get his hands dirty so he eats them very gingerly with the tips of his fingers. Luke digs all in, and then Jack says, "Now you have to go wash your hands." Luke says, "No I don't," and spends the next 15 minutes licking all the cheese off his fingers and palms.

  19. You've got a couple good doritos ideas, if I can extend the concepts. What about showing a trail of dorito hand print marks all across the house. They are on toys and games and it looks like the kids have been eating doritos. Then, the camera finds the same hand prints on the computer keyboard and pulls back to mommy eating the doritos.

    The nap thing kills me.

  20. The first thing I think of with Doritos is how bad they make your breath. I can tell my husband ate some hours after the fact. Maybe a spouse could cath their partner in a lie because of the faint traces of Dortio breath?
