#Vegasstrong

So this is something important to me, but I held off on saying anything. This blog isn't a political place, and I am not trying to politicize myself through a tragedy. I grew up in Las Vegas, and I got my start in advertising there. I did work for Live Nation, and the Mandalay Bay was one of my favorite haunts. I proposed to my wife on top of the Mandalay Bay at the Foundation Room. Anyways, I worked on some promotional items that are flying off the shelves to help the victims of this senseless tragedy. Click here for a link to that site.

It's Photo Booth Season!!! (Plus Country Music Wrap-up)

I am back at Autzen Stadium this year in support of Guaranty's photo boot. We have a new mannequin and will be getting an even newer mannequin soon. So far my favorite mannequin has to be the  one we used at Oregon State University last year. He just looked buffer, and most like a football player. Who would have thought that I would have a preference in mannequins? And how many times can I say mannequin in one post?

I will be with Eggie in the Moshofsky Center before every home game this year. Come by, give Eggie a high five, and make sure you get your picture taken with that day's game jersey. We will print you a copy on the spot. Go Ducks!


There's not much to say about Willamette Country Music Festival that hasn't already been said. I went and worked the photo booth, did my Eggie thing, installed signage and had a great time. I had an epic sick day. I think it was bad fish, a gas leak or something. It was awful.

Country Music Video Extravaganza

by Jamie Bennett

I am tired, so this will be short. I included my favorite videos from this weekend for filler. To the right is a number of sandwich boards I brought to the festival. The neon decal ones were in the Rising Star area, and the four color signs were at the display. I spent today cleaning our marketing trailer, and sorting the collateral materials. It was a great weekend. It was especially awesome to see people enjoying the hats, other promotional items, and it was great to get to know my colleagues better. I am exhausted, so there you have it.


Read on and you'll see video that Cappelli Miles made for the jumbotron (Eggie included), video of me dancing (in real life) and the most Amaerican clip of all time.

And I Still Went to Cape Blanco!


by Jamie Bennett

I broke my arm before the big show. After months of preparation, I fell and received a hairline fracture on the radial horn in my left arm, but I still went to the Cape Blanco Country Music Festival. We were a hit as usual, didn't miss a beat. Here is a photo of me wearing my heavy egg suit, featured on the festival's Facebook page. It was great. Eggie had more name recognition then ever. I didn't have a cast. I didn't need one, which stinks because I broke my arm. I deserved a sweet cast to paint on! I have never broken anything in my life to warrant a cast, and I feel a little sad that I missed out this time.

Read on and I'll give you some highlights from this weekend.

The Worst is Over... :)

by Jamie Bennett

So this is just a quick update about how our show season has been, and a run down of what is coming in the next couple months. The title of this blog post is in reference to nothing... lol... In advertising, the worst is never over, it's just lying dormant. It just felt good to say that the worst is over because, I have been working really hard the last several months.


To begin with, on the left you will see the artwork for this year's festival shirts. It will be printed on neon shirts, using bright neon inks. I can't wait to get my hands on one of these bad boys.

Second, the paper cutter is holding it's own and so if my new printer. Over the last month I have printed, cut and shipped over 80k direct mailers to promote our various shows around Oregon. This has arguably been our most successful show season to date.
