Scholly, the scholarship-finding mobile app that constantly gets national buzz, released a commercial this week. It was a Drexel affair, produced by the Drexel grads that run video crew Five Five Collective. (Scholly was founded by Drexel undergrad Christopher Gray.)

Watch it below.

Five Five Collective has produced videos for other Drexel undergrad startups like haircut app MyKlipsPics and solar-powered battery charger Spor.

Gray said he’s working on getting the commercial to run on places other than YouTube. He wouldn’t disclose how many downloads the app has seen but said he would shortly, when the Scholly web app launches in the fall.
