Fathers Day is a bit rubbish really isn’t it? It doesn’t get the same publicity that we get for Mothers Day for example. Buying Dad a gift for Fathers Day is great and important but what if you want to do something extra special? Something that really shows your appreciation? Well we might have the answer for you. We are working with Tesco to promote their fabulous Tannoy Takeover campaign. Basically you visit the Tesco Tannoy Takeover website (which can be found at the bottom of this post) and fill in your details and record a message. You then head to Tesco at the date and time you selected and your message will be played out over the tannoy to your Dad. As an extra special treat, after your announcement has been played you can head to the customer services counter where your Dad will be given a £10 gift card. This is only available over the Fathers Day weekend (17th and 18th June)
Now I was given the chance to put this to the test and see how it works as well as try to capture this on camera. I thought this was a great way to show our appreciation so I set about getting the girls to record a message for us to play to their Dad and then made our way to our Local Tesco. The hardest part was trying to not make him suspicious as we hardly ever go shopping as a family (I order most of my food online!) so we said it was to see if he could help us choose some Fathers Day gifts and obviously top up on a few bits whilst we were there.
Check out this video of the moment we heard the announcement over the Tannoy.
I think you have to agree that it was pretty cute and my girls thought up their own message to say to him which was a really nice touch.
So what are you waiting for head to https://www.tesco.com/tannoytakeover where you can search for your nearest store and input all of your details. You will then receive an automated call to record your message so make sure you have an idea on what you want to say first. Let me know how you get on and make sure you sign up quick because there are only a limited number of slots per store.
