Candy Crush Bus Tour
“Anyone want to wear a mascot costume & travel across the country for 10 days on a tour bus from June 19th to 30th?! (not kidding)” - Facebook post
Join the team from Big Spaceship as the red jelly bean mascot on their Candy Crush promotional bus tour across America. I didn’t know anyone on team, I’d never done on-camera work, and I’d never slept in a bunk bed on a bus but I only had one question: Where do I sign?*
*To be clear, I was not the art director on this campaign. I was there only as "talent."
A lot of people say no job is too small or that they’ll go the extra mile to get things done but how many of them have donned a jelly bean costume and then run up the Rocky steps in Philly (harder than it sounds) or ridden a mechanical bull (exactly as hard as it sounds)? Well, I did all that and more in the 9 cities we visited for this campaign. The full videos for each city are on the Candy Crush Saga Facebook page but below is a time saving highlights reel.
All in all, it was the trip of a lifetime and while I may not have created the idea I did work hard to help bring it to life because at the end of the day I just want to make great work, no matter the source or my role.
That's a wrap!
