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”
This past weekend, in Chico, CA, Harold Owens III took 1st place in the 1A division of the USA National Yo-Yo Contest. Harold was added to our team earlier this year this was his first time competing in the USA National Yo-Yo Contest. Congratulations Harold.
