As part of its Stay In The Game campaign, Pringles and Grey London have launched a new activation offering someone the chance to get paid to work in a videogame as an NPC, a world first opportunity. The campaign, the latest from Pringles Mind Popping brand platform, will invite applications and then select a candidate to appear as an NPC in Train Sim World - the train simulation game available with Xbox Game Pass - as a Pringles vending machine re-filler with a prize of £20,000. To support the launch, Grey London has produced a series of films showing existing NPCs in Train Sim World being less than happy about the fact that a human is going to become an NPC in their game and be paid for it. Those interested in applying are invited to post a creative video or selfie with a Pringles can explaining why they would be the best Pringles vending machine refiller NPC in under 50 words on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook including the hashtag #PringlesStayInTheGame and tag @Pringles_UK. Applications for the position open on 20th June 2022 and close on 6th July 2022. All posts must be made public to be entered.
