CHICAGO, May 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- After a nationwide search that began in March, Miller Lite announced today the winners of the Miller Time Internship, a two week "internship" that explores the best jobs Miller Lite has to offer.
Hailing from Angola, Ind., the winners are long-time friends John McLaughlin, Matt Kopina, Mason Zimmer and Will Chrystal. The winning team of McLaughlin, Kopina, Zimmer and Chrystal gave the interview their all and displayed a true sense of brotherhood, which ultimately defines what Miller Time is all about.
The Miller Time "Internship" was created in honor of the brand's partnership with 20th Century Fox's comedy movie "The Internship," starring Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson. Just as comedy stars Vaughn and Wilson battle it out for the job of their dreams in the film, which opens in theaters nationwide June 7, Miller Lite challenged groups of friends to prove why they deserved the "internship" of their dreams.
"When we launched the Miller Time Internship, we had no idea how creative and dedicated the applicants would be," said Ryan Reis, Miller Lite senior director of marketing. "The competition was tough but we are thrilled to have John, Matt, Mason and Will represent our brand and are looking forward to watching them celebrate the great 'internship' Miller Lite has to offer."
As winners, they'll experience some of the best jobs that only Miller Lite can bring to life. Their road-trip in the Miller Time "Internship" RV begins in Philadelphia this Friday and will head cross-country for 16 days, ending in Los Angeles at the red-carpet premiere of "The Internship." Fans can check out their application video by visiting the brand's Facebook page.
Legal-drinking-age consumers can get an exclusive inside look at the road trip by watching "Jimmy Kimmel Live" during the last two weeks in May, where the Miller Time interns will be making two late-night check-ins.
