Surprise your Team

Recently Budweiser beer in the US did a ‘Flash Fans’ promotional event where they brought in bus loads of 600 roaring fans with cheer leaders, TV coverage, commentators and big screen replays to a small town recreational ice hockey match between the Amigos and the Generals. What would normally have had an audience of a dozen turned into a celebration of sport and passion. The two teams went to the ice as ‘Regular Joes’ and as the crowd came in they were transformed to feel like super stars.

As you go into your day, think about who are the “Regular Joes” in your life and who could do with a fan, a cheer, a shout of “He Shoots, He Scores!”.

Media Observations

Dorothy & the Witches of OZ

Good to see Billy Boyd (Pippin) back on screen in this production. With stars like Christopher Lloyd and Lance Henriksen it offers some fun and style. The interesting part to this story is that this was meant to be a TV mini-series which is now getting a limited theatre release in the States from February 17th. The script is based around the premise that Dorothy Gale discovers her best selling novels were based on her suppressed childhood memories. As the realisation of her time in Oz comes to reality she must face the danger of it all coming true again.
