2160 hours. 129,600 minutes. 7,776,000 seconds. And over 66 million impressions on Twitter alone. That’s how hard we wagered our campaign to get Ellen DeGeneres to have lunch with us in an effort to raise money for Feeding America. Well? We wish we could say that in the interest of drama, Ellen was watching the whole time and was waiting for the very last day to accept our invitation. The truth [...]

On May 29th, we launched the #90DaysToEllen campaign. 128,160+ minutes and … well … we have not (yet) heard from Ellen or anyone on her team. We have less than 24 hours to prove that two guys can use social media to land lunch with Ellen DeGeneres to help fight hunger in America. We’ve asked for your help over the past 3 months. However, if there was ever a day [...]

!!!FINAL 2 DAYS OF THE 90 DAYS TO ELLEN CAMPAIGN!!! The ALMOST FINAL Ellen “Stand-In” Audition Video! In case you missed it, on Friday, August 16th, we held open auditions for an Ellen “stand-in” (watch the “behind the scenes video). Just in case Ellen and/or someone from her team does not contact us before the end of the day on Monday, we need to pick an Ellen “stand-in.” First there [...]

!!!FINAL 3 DAYS OF THE 90 DAYS TO ELLEN CAMPAIGN!!! Another Ellen “Stand-In” Audition Video! In case you missed it, on Friday, August 16th, we held open auditions for an Ellen “stand-in” (watch the “behind the scenes video). Just in case Ellen and/or someone from her team does not contact us before the end of the day on Monday, we need to pick an Ellen “stand-in.” First there was Lara [...]

!!!FINAL WEEK OF THE 90 DAYS TO ELLEN CAMPAIGN!!! On Friday, we held open auditions for an Ellen “stand-in” (watch the “behind the scenes video). I mean, while we don’t hope this is the case … it is POSSIBLE that Ellen and/or someone from her team does not contact us. But we WILL have lunch with Ellen DeGeneres (or “Ellen”). But have no fear. Even though you missed the open [...]

!!!FINAL WEEK OF THE 90 DAYS TO ELLEN CAMPAIGN!!! As we announced last week, we held open auditions for an Ellen “stand-in” … just in case we don’t hear from her in the next week. While you did miss the live auditions on Friday (watch the “behind the scenes video here), there is still time to submit your Ellen “stand-in” video. Simply create a short video telling us why YOU [...]

With just 11 days to go in the campaign, we are seriously amazed and grateful for all the creative, incredible people rallying around our efforts to land lunch with Ellen! So much has happened in the last week, we had to share: This just in: The International Culinary Center gave us our FIRST Feeding America donation to host lunch! The power of social media reached none other than the leading authority [...]

This is what happens when Bryan, Courtney, Kristina, and DJ get together on a Sunday afternoon … Heads Up – 90 Days To Ellen style Oh, and in case you’ve never heard of “Heads Up,” it’s a game Ellen released in the Spring. At the end of the game, you have the option of posting to Facebook, uploading to YouTube, and even sending directly to Ellen. We did all three. [...]

90 Days To Ellen launched 1,824 hours (aka, 76 days) ago. We’ve been THRILLED by the traction we’ve gained. The potential reach has been unbelievable (over 40 MILLION impressions so far!). There are nearly 40 Ellen videos. However, we have not heard a peep from Ellen DeGeneres nor from anyone on her team. We are fairly certain that she is listening. I mean, she has to know about #90DaysToEllen, right? [...]

No self-respecting social media campaign would be complete without internet memes! We’ve created a slew of them over the course of our campaign, but thought we’d collect and post them all here for your viewing (and sharing) pleasure: Dos Equis “Most Interesting Man in the World” KITTIES! Grumpy Cat Hip Cat Sparticus Raptor Condescending Willy Wonka  AND… Our FIRST fan contribution meme, from Allie Wallis @tweetsbyallie (THANK YOU! and true.) [...]
