Actually, the truth is right here – if by truth you mean the story of this years’ Sprightly and Sproutly Christmas card from Together.
What we’ve done is send out to our very best chums in all the word a tiny package containing:
1. A single run-of-the-mill sprout
2. The tools and inspiration you need to transform him into a veggie icon
3. Big and powerful festive hugs.
If you’ve received such a package, it’s then your challenge to create your very own sproutish character.
You can use the stickers we’ve provided, or you can quite simply go nuts and let your imaginations tickle that humble sprout into a whole new astounding existence.
Then simply snap a picture of your creation and upload him to facebook.com/togetheragency (don’t forget to give the young fellow a name).
We’ll not only proudly display him in our Sprout album on Facebook we’ll also place him into our special Sprout Gallery on the Together website too. Keep your eyes peeled on our Facebook and Twitter pages (as well as the website) to see the new Sprouts being added.
Sprout of Britain
Best of all, when the new year rolls around we’ll be trawling through the entries and handing out sprout-themed prizes for the sprouts that have dazzled and dizzied us in equal measure as part of the first ever Together Sprout of Britain Awards.
(And believe us, we’ll be handing out the kind of prizes that even the little toe-rag from the John Lewis advert would want to keep hold of – with everything from Sprouty games and goodies to our grand prize of an organic Sprout watch.)
So, if you’ve received a sprout, do the decent thing and let him experience the wonders of facial features, immense facial hair and possibly even a rather jaunty piece of headgear.
After all, think of the pleasure this ‘delicious’ green fellow has given to ‘millions’ of Christmas dinner eaters all across the world. Surely he deserves his moment to shine?
Also, if you haven’t received a Sprout kit but fancy getting involved than drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be delighted to send you a pack so you can join the leafy adventures.
We look forward to seeing your Sprouty creations in the next few weeks. Until then, in the words of that true Christmas saviour, Sir Cliff Richard: ‘let’s get smashed and have a blinder’.
p.s. If you happen to have been on holiday and return to find a three week old sprout on your desk, all we can say is ‘oops’. Feel free to send us some out-of-date yoghurt or a bad potato as retribution.
