It occurred to me today that in all of the different challenges I've posted on this blog, I don't think I've ever posted one that's strictly improv. So, straight from Team Challenges, here you go!
Place all of the materials listed below in a brown paper bag. Read the list of improv materials and the team instructions out loud to the team.
1 cardboard tube
1 plastic spoon
1 empty tissue box
5 cotton balls
5 drinking straws
A giant pharmaceutical company has finally found a cure for the common cold. The company chose your team to create an ad campaign encouraging consumers to buy this new medication. You have four minutes to create a TV commercial touting the benefits of the medication. Your advertisement should include the name of the new product, the benefits it can provide to sick people and of course, the various and many side effects that may be encountered by those who use it. You will be notified when you have one minute of planning time remaining. When time expires, you will have one minute to present your advertisement to the pharmaceutical company for their approval. You will receive ten bonus points if every team member is involved in the presentation, as well as up to ten points each for creativity, cooperation and communication.
