Rim High spoofs popular commercial with their yearbook video

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

The latest yearbook video to get showcased here in the Yearbooks Blog comes from Rim of the World High School in Lake Arrowhead, Calif.

The video is a take-off of the funny series of commercials done over the last couple years for the Discover card, in which celebrities have trouble communicating over the phone about a charge mix-up. Putting a yearbook spin on a popular series of ads is one fun direction to go with your yearbook video.

Another positive of the video from Rim is that the staff used it to drive awareness of their yearbook page on Facebook. Take a look below.
