A few weeks ago we had a special guest here at YoYoFactory…

 

 

Mr Augie Fash!

 

 

Augie is getting ready for a world tour, and he’ll have plenty of these autograph cards with him. If you get a change to meet him make sure to get one signed.

 

 

One of our display cases, featuring the artwork and signature editions of Augie. We’ll need to make room for the new Catalyst.

 

 

Augie and Miggy go over some last details of Augie’s new video…

When we took the first look at our new Stainless steel whistling yo-yo the idea was already there to film a short video. It was a ‘return to retro’ concept with dare I say, ‘futuristic’ styling and interchangeable response system. Inspiration was drawn from MANY time periods.

All we needed then was the worlds most famous Stainless Steel Car and a $6,000 pair of shoes…

 

“We rolled up in our van. Its pretty easy to spot a car with strobes, neons and speakers blazing a movie soundtrack”

 

“Before the sun set we took it for a drive. Speed limits weren’t the only thing that kept it below 88. The owner says it would need to be going downhill, with a tailwind, to get close”

 

“Feeling like cinderella, they fit like a glove”

 

“Ironically the shoes were much more comfortable than the car”

 

“Our budget for the shoot was $30. That bought a smoke machine, liquid for it and a bottle of lighter fluid.”

 

“I could play with this for hours” (unidentified crew member hopefully talking about the yoyo). Kids, don’t play with fire, despite how fun it looks.

 

“In the end it was a super fun night. The yo-yo is super fun too. Hope you enjoy the video”
