When temperatures are 30 degrees or below, the first thing that you think of is jumping in icy cold water, right? Well, that’s just one of the “would you rather” questions we asked people on the streets in Chicagoland recently. And to no surprise, the choice was to support Special Olympics of Illinois by taking the Polar Plunge. The motionpost crew consisted of Tom McCosky on camera, Jeff Evenson on audio, Stacey Evenson directing, and Greta Landis as scriptwriter. Our Special Olympics host and her enthusiastic Polar Bear, or Polar B as we like to call him, hit the street asking several people “would you rather” questions, with one of the options as participating in the Polar Plunge for Special Olympics Illinois. This social media campaign was shot with several quick man-on-the-street interviews in order to get the most footage out of a short period of time. We decided to take the humorous route with this campaign, giving them several videos to post over the course of many weeks leading up to the plunge. You do have to have a sense of humor to jump in icy waters in the winter, don’t you?
So, would you rather…?
