We were pleased to work with experiential agency The Persuaders recently with streamer cannons and flame effects to help support Richmond Foods with one of their Nations Favourite social media competitions.
Richmond regularly run competitions via their social media sites and the latest was for one local football club to win an epic day and ultimate football match to include guest star appearances, stadium style special effects and as many free sausages as you could eat. Local football clubs were invited to leave comments to say why they thought they had the nation’s best supporting fans and why they were the heart of their team.
@EastGrinsteadTownFC were the lucky winners and Confetti Magic were asked to provide special effects to give the club that champions league feel whilst special guests Harry Redknapp and Hayley McQueen surprised the competition winners by hosting the event for the day.
Herne Bay were the lucky opposing team and as both teams entered the pitch, four of our wireless G-flames sent chasing bursts of flame into the air to the eye of the tiger soundtrack.
After the final whistle and 1-1 final score, it was time for the winners’ presentation. The G-flames took to the pitch once more accompanied by a pair of our 4 way, Wireless, multi-shot streamer cannons.
As the trophy was held aloft, a shower of seven-meter-long, gold and green streamers covered the teams and the G-flames danced once more to the tune of ‘We are the Champions’.
One upside to using streamers instead of confetti is that they are quickly cleared and on this occasion were quickly collected and wrapped around the players to use as foil blankets to keep them warm as the sun went down.
As both the G-flames and remote cannons were operated wirelessly, we were able to position everything quickly and adjust the location accordingly to meet the needs of the camera crew, changes to schedule and even the weather.
