Arnett’s winning video, entitled Blizzard Wizard, shows his dream about the Blizzard Wizard who commands him to perform three good deeds before he can become a Mini Blizzard TREATSman. Arnett completes all three tasks, but is comically told by the Blizzard Wizard that his request to become a Mini Blizzard TREATSman must go to a public vote and will be a long, complicated process. In the meantime, the Blizzard Wizard bestows Arnett with a Mini Blizzard Treat for his efforts.
About the Mini Blizzard TREATment online video contest:
In April, DQ® customers were asked to create videos combining their love for the Dairy Queen brand with a “mini TREATment” to submit online at DQ.com/mini. Dairy Queen officials judged all video submissions on content and creativity and posted the top 24 to the DQ Facebook page to allow fans to vote for their favorites. The six video entries that received the most fan votes during a two-week period in May were selected to win the ultimate Mini Blizzard TREATment, a new Mini Cooper Countryman from Dairy Queen.
