- Only a few days left before contest closes -

RICHMOND HILL, ON, June 20, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Canadians only have a few days left to do something that can earn them 15 seconds of fame - all they have to do is shoot a quick video of themselves doing the "shopping cart dance" and send it to staples.ca/shoppingcartdance. By submitting their own version of the quirky dance, participants can run the chance of winning an appearance in a Staples national back-to-school television ad campaign.

Anyone over the age of 18 can enter the contest, called Staples' Make 15 Seconds of Fame Happen, at www.staples.com/shoppingcartdance. Contest entrants will need to download the song, create a short video doing the shopping cart dance, fill out an entry form and upload their video.

Staples will select up to 40 submissions to star in its commercials for the 2014 back-to-school season. Submissions will be accepted until 5 p.m. EDT, Monday, June 23 and the winners will be announced on July 8, 2014.

Winners will also receive a $250 Staples gift card.
