Have you ever wanted to learn Spanish but don’t have the time to take Spanish classes or buy those pesky computer programs like “Rosetta Stone”.
Now you don’t have to do anything!!!
Introducing “Spanish Spud”
Spanish Spud is a potato and with the push of a mustached shaped button… you can learn Spanish instantly!!!!!
Press the mustache and ask your question of how to say the word ‘hello’ for example in Spanish and watch the magic potato speak back to you
“The word for Hello in Spanish is hola”
Everyone Uses Spanish Spud J!
Join The Hispanic Potato craze!
What is your invention? – Our invention is the Spanish spud, a potato that teaches you Spanish. It works by pushing a button shaped like a moustache. You ask how you say something in Spanish and you get the answer, it’s that simple. The Spanish Spud Retails for 19.99 and is sold at lots of stores!
Describe how you came up with the idea for your invention- It’s actually a funny story. We were thinking of ideas and we kept rejecting each other’s ideas. I jokingly said “Hey, let’s make a vegetable that teaches you a language”. Vance said “So, a potato that teaches you Spanish. Like a, uh, uh, SPANISH SPUD!” Thus, the Spanish Spud was born.
Our thumbnail took us about a day and a half just to make. You’d really think it be simple to draw a potato with a mustache! The poster went great! We drew a potato just big enough to see it from far away. We then made huge pop outs around it so we would attract people and put a huge box that said “POTATO” and another huge box saying “19.99”. I really like the sign!
The script was aimed towards a cheesy commercial where a kid didn’t speak Spanish and his math teacher threatened to flunk him. The kid found a Spanish spud and aced the class instantly.
The storyboard was a simple yet elegant, Vance is sitting at a table flunking Spanish and I introduce the Spanish Spud to him. He really likes it and asks a question and gets the answer in Spanish. Most if the video just shows Vance from his waist up.
We experienced several during our video. I made lots of errors in my lines. There were a group of 6th graders that kept yelling at us when we were filming. There was a crazy teacher that called Officer Dennis on us and tried to send us to principal Elfe. But our #1 enemy was the rain.
Overall, I learned that trying to have an invention is a long and hard process that requires patience. Which is why I could never really do that.
