Gotta Go? Enjoy It? Submit It!

October 24, 2010

A couple personal questions to go with a truly out-there competition: What kind of toilet paper do you use in your Chicago home? Does it make you “Enjoy the Go?” If it does, you could win $50,000.

Procter & Gamble’s Charmin is searching for 51 representatives from across the country to compete to be King or Queen of the Charmin Go Nation.

Charmin's Mr. Whipple

Remember the olden days, when Charmin promotions involved Mr. Whipple and people squeezing, not using, the product?

The contest is for consumers who truly appreciate the Charmin Restroom experience.

To enter, make a two-minute video submission on why you “Enjoy the Go” and upload it to www.EnjoyTheGo.com by November 7.

The video should answer these questions:

*Why do you deserve to represent your state as a member of the Charmin Go Nation?

*To Charmin, “Enjoy the Go” is about making your bathroom experience more enjoyable. What does “Enjoy the Go” mean to you?

*If chosen, how would you best represent your state as the Charmin Go Nation King or Queen?

Live auditions:

Or, if you would rather, Charmin will be in Chicago on November 3 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. where you can attend an in-person audition at Buckingham Ballroom, 162 East Ohio Street, Chicago. Auditions are also taking place in New York City on October 26 and Los Angeles on October 29.

When all the videos have been submitted, Charmin officials will pick one person from each state and the District of Columbia who best embodies Charmin’s “Enjoy the Go” spirit. The finalists will have three weeks to prove who “Enjoys the Go” the most. Then the top five representatives will be flown to New York City for three days and two nights to compete for the grand prize at the Charmin Restrooms in Times Square on December 28.

“Charmin’s mission is to inspire consumers across the country to ‘Enjoy the Go,'” said Charmin brand manager, Jacques Hagopian. “We are always looking for fresh and interesting ways to engage our consumers, whether it is in the Charmin Restrooms in Times Square, on the go, or at home. We’re looking for someone who embodies the ‘Enjoy the Go’ spirit to lead the Charmin Go Nation.”

I tell ya, I am a loyal Charmin user, but I certainly wouldn’t want to be one of the people stuck watching the videos sent in across America. You have to imagine there will be more than one filmed on the throne!

Thanks for the great post………much appreciated


Well I feel there is a lot of bias and discrimination and favoritism involved in these kind of contests and they are indeed very “unfair” in judging just like we have seen in past times as it has been the case with “American Idol” and other such type of shows and programs. I want you to take a closer look at my own submission found on youtube.com, and tell me what made it not be a winning submission for the contest please? Not because I did it but I thought it was very clever and funny don’t you?

I don’t know if there is any discrimination or favoritism in the contest, but I will tell you that I laughed out loud when I watched your video. Very well done!
