Job Description

This is a series of animated videos, we are offering $750 for unlimited web use and 5 weeks TV (cable and regional) MUST BE AVAILABLE TO RECORD TOMORROW.

Here is the character description:


Characters: Dirk and Nigel, aka, the DoubleDecker Brothers, are from the UK and believe all pretzels should be eaten two at a time, stuck together with peanut butter or whatever else you like.

Voices: English rock star accents. Nigel Tufnel and David St. Hubbins from This is Spinal Tap is better than Austin Powers. Other examples that would do well would be Malcolm McDowell in A Clockwork Orange; a less drunk Gary Oldman as Sid Vicious in Sid and Nancy; the guy who performs as The Streets (a UK hip-hop act) has a naturally hilarious delivery. Avoid Beatle-esque voices.

Here is the script:

TV COMMERCIAL I: TV Commercial I is a press conference for the DoubleDecker Brothers, Dirk and Nigel. The Press Conference “set” is in the background, the DD Brothers are in front. They both speak in English accents. They are getting their own, individual TV spot because they are one of the main characters of the campaign.

TICKER: Throughout, the ticker displays the following flow of information:

Bavarian says “I must bake you.” Again. • Learn the Wasabi Way • Watch DoubleDecker Brothers vs Big Pizza • Action Snacktion movie not in production. Star blames “Cheesers.” • Cinnamon & Sugar detained in Beverly Hills following “incident.”

REPORTER, Off screen: How are you preparing for SuperPretzel-oh-seven?

SUPER: Dirk and Nigel, aka The DoubleDecker Brothers

DIRK: Three words: Always. Stick. Together.

NIGEL: With peanut butter and jelly.

REPORTER: That’s it?

DIRK: Incredulous:

Yeah. That’s it.

NIGEL: D’ya know what we do to single pretzels then?

Cut to shots to the DoubleDecker Brothers fighting Big Pizza as Dirk and Nigel continue to talk as voice overs:

DIRK: Crushes them.

NIGEL: Makes them into little mincey pies, don’t we?
