The Day the Potato Heads Came Alive!

Psst…in case you’ve not heard, we’ve been invaded by Potato Heads for the past few months! In fact, according to the PNN (Potato News Network), you’re probably surrounded by them right now! *squints suspiciously around the corner*

And for all you non-believers out there, we even have videos as proof that Potato Heads are alive! Don’t believe us? Hop over to our JacknJillPotatoHeads’s YouTube Channel and see for yourself the thrilling suspense of Agent Potato and Samurai Potato in action. Seeking for some chills down your spine? Scream along as you try to survive watching the Potato Horror Show!

Say wha–? Oh yes, you heard us right but don’t worry…we ain’t going loco yet! We’re actually talking about our Jack ‘n Jill Potato Head Series that follows quick on the heels of our nostalgic Jack ‘n Jill Skinner TVCs on Youtube – which takes us back on a memory lane to the golden yesteryears when the crunchy goodness of Jack ‘n Jill Potato Chips first landed on the shores of Malaysia.

Seeking world domination (as ordered by our Potato Head head honcho), we next unleashed our potato mojo with our “Your Potato Head Friends” facebook application, which has been going around the web and infecting people to go potato-crazy and turn their friends’ facebook profile pictures into wacky Potato Heads.

But that’s not all! Seeing as how so many of you had such a ball with “Your Potato Head Friends”, we then threw in some BIG rewards with another one of our even more awesome applications called “Name Your Potato” contest. Just doodle on a potato, name it and voila! The Grand Prize winners would walk away with an iPad 2 whilst Consolation Prize winners would chomp away on RM100 worth of Jack ‘n Jill products!

Indeed, it was gruelling trying to pick our Grand Prize and Consolation Prize winners each week amongst so many crazily creative submissions but we finally did it! Here are our winners in weekly order:
