And TELUS uses it as inspiration for… online… halloween… pumpkin… carving… or something to that like.
This afternoon, this was posted on TELUS’ Facebook fan page:
Hey Jillian Walker,
When it was mentioned that you were a pretty amazing fan, Danny the Installer whipped out a pair of wire clippers and a hex crimper and carved this pumpkin in your likeness.
By the way, has anyone told you that you look stunning in orange?
… with the below photo:
Uh huh… no joke.
Instantly I was tagged in a Facebook post by my buddy Brett, with a “you’re famous.” I clicked on the notification and burst into a laughter.
Thank you Danny the Installer. You’re truly amazing.
You know what I love about marketing in this era? Just about anything goes. Well done TELUS! You made a whole pile of us laugh, used just the right amount of humour and targeted just the girl who looks shockingly beautiful in orange. ;)
Happy Halloween everyone. Stay out of trouble tomorrow night.
PS – The original headshot was taken in Calgary by Madi at Of Storms Photography.
REVISED – OCTOBER 31st
This afternoon a courier arrived at my condo — with a massive box. He asked if I needed help carrying it as it was 30 lbs… I looked at him strangely… I hadn’t ordered anything online lately… what could it be?
I opened the box to find this:
I was absolutely overwhelmed.
Danny the Installer… carved my face into a pumpkin. And it wasn’t a joke (!!!).
Seeing as I’m 28, I don’t trick or treat anymore. I also live in a locked down condo building, so I didn’t hang out candy. Around 11pm, I decided to light my pumpkin. I sat cross-legged on my floor staring at it for quite some time…
So funny, yet so bizarre.
Rather remarkable don’t you think?
