Project Main Details

Old Presidents 
Multimedia Promo for Bill My Parents a new reloadable prepaid card for teens.

Project Summary: These are the "dirty old men" on our American green currency. They are a comedic part of a campaign about parents and kids using atm cards rather than cash. The "dirty old men" are being pushed out of the lives of teens all over the US - actually being campaigned against. They've had a good, long run but its time they retire because... Do these guys actually help reduce teen spending? NOPE. Because cash transactions can not be tracked as well as electronic atm cards can.

For auditions talent can record sides at the location of their choice and send it in via FTP or email. The actual hired talent will need to be available for recording at a studio location in San Diego, CA on this Friday July 29th.

Script Details

1) George Washington - As sort of America's original dad, he's grumpy and a bit condescending. Yet his confidence is shaken. "First you put me on the $1...The ONE!" Well, you won't have George to kick around anymore. Think Al Bundy.

2) Ben Franklin - Ben's a bit more youthful sounding than he may look. He's the guy at the pub who plainly knows how to tell the best story, always has a funny joke and delivers a punchy one-liner. Think an American Dudley Moore.

3) Andrew Jackson - Andy was a trailblazer and tough old SOB from the south. You could say he's absolutely a loose cannon. We'll really need to channel that quirky, almost manic energy. Andy, at any moment, could challenge you to a duel! Think Lewis Black.

4) Abe Lincoln - The great, calm, cool, collected Abe Lincoln. Well...actually no. The twist about honest Abe is that he actually is very indecisive! His voice is low and booming. But he has a sort of Woody Allen quality - self deprecating, funny and somewhat neurotic.

5) U.Grant - If someone asked who's on the $50 you'd shrug your shoulders. Even though his initials are US, most of America doesn't know who he is. He's dry and delivers lines as a classic straight man. Think comedian Steven Wright.

George Washington:
You know, I didn't think it was a revolutionary thought to print a bunch of bills with my handsome face on it. But... really... the one? I figure the good news is, in this economy, you won't have to stare at Ben Franklin's mug all that much.

The bad news? It's called the Anti-green movement. Now, parents all over this great nation are trying to put the kibosh on the ka-ching. Why? I guess money ain't so money. Cash can't be tracked, but plastic actually helps reduce teen spending. So, they're giving their kids the instantly trackable and reloadable SpendSmart card from BillMyParents.

Benjamin Franklin:
It's all about the Benjamins, baby! It's all about the Benjamins, baby! Poppin bottles and dating models! And that's why they hate Ben Franklin. You know... The Anti-green movement people.

I guess they think being BF with BF is a bad thing for the kids today. Bling, bling can't be tracked, but plastic actually helps reduce teen spending. So, parents are giving their kids the instantly trackable and reloadable SpendSmart card from BillMyParents.

Andrew Jackson:
Being me is not all it's cracked up to be. I mean, when's the last time you were shot from the bottom of a glass box with an air blower while some "winner" at the state fair midway tries to stuff as much of you into their shirt as possible?Exactly.

If I had any sense, I'd join this Anti-green movement myself. Sure, cash can't be tracked. And plastic actually does help reduce teen spending. But, to those parents giving their kids the instantly trackable and reloadable SpendSmart card from BillMyParents, I say this...

Fine. If you think I'll miss the scotch tape on my face after being ripped to shreds, the answer is still, nope.

Abraham Lincoln:
FourSquare and several check-ins ago, is probably where you lost me. Pulled your smart phone out of your pocket at the movies and I came tumbling out on the floor. If only you could avoid the civil war at home caused by lost loot.

Well, parents all over America are telling old Honest Abe to get lost for good. It seems this instantly trackable and reloadable SpendSmart card from BillMyParents actually helps reduce teen spending. And it is creating a stronger union between parents and teens.

U.S. Grant:
Do you know me? Didn't think so. My initials are U.S. but no one in America can remember my name. On the street, I get mistaken for the most interesting man in the world all, the, time. I might as well be in parenthesis.

So, I really won't be missed if the Anti-green movement have their way. Parents all over the country are making change and giving their children an instantly trackable and reloadable SpendSmart card from BillMyParents. It actually helps reduce teen spending.
