For many, college means living large even with modest means, sleeping late, spending just about every waking minute with friends, and taking the occasional impromptu road trip. With graduation looming, does it all have to end? For most students, the answer will be yes. But others will go down fighting...others like two University of Florida seniors Eric Schackne and Filup Molina.
Early in their senior year, Eric and Filup made a pact that in this, the final year of their collegiate career, they'd live it up, experience whatever they could, and look back with no regrets. It made the decision to select them to represent UF in the Chevy Aveo Livin' Large Campus Challenge an easy one. During the Challenge, Eric and Filup lived inside a sub-compact Chevy Aveo for five days. They left their home away from home only to attend class and for periodic bio-breaks.
After spending four nights and five days living inside the sub-compact Chevy Aveo, the two students have finally hit the open road, while the Chevy Aveo Livin' Large Road Trip follows their adventures during a week-long trip pursuing their dreams of making it big in comedy. Eric and Filup are creating daily videos and keeping a blog chronicling their journey from their campus in Gainesville, Florida, to the entertainment capital of the world - Hollywood, California. Along their route, they'll try their hand at stand-up comedy during open mic nights and perform alongside some of the country's best improv troupes. The guys will conclude their week in Los Angeles with a chance to meet Jay Leno.
