You guys are the BEST!

" Marie D’Amore—Production Supervisor, HSI

The drivers were awesome to be with.  Hard working drivers!!   It really stands out when the drivers jump in to help set up base camp, and tear it down.  Not to mention always having a fresh green tea for me just when I needed it every time.  They really were great and I’d ask for them anytime we get vehicles from you. Thanks!

" Mary Brooks – 3 Star Productions

I wanted to give Rich another glowing report, He was AMAZING on our shoot. The most helpful driver I’ve ever had. I’ll definitely be requesting him on future shoots.

Thanks for everything guys!

" Adrienne Burton – Freelance Prod Coordinator

We’ve used the Helios twice now and have been quite impressed each time.  It has everything production could want AND it’s earth friendly! We will use the Helios on every job in which we need a moho.

" Mario D’Amici—Production Coordinator, Beef Films

You guys did a phenomenal job with the Helios. And Rob, as always, went above and beyond for us.

" Dan Kae—Assistant Production Supervisor

Just wanted to say thanks for the awesome customer service. Our driver was friendly and professional. He arrived early and had everything ready to go for us. The motorhome was clean and in perfect shape. Every detail matters on a shoot to help keep everything running smoothly. We love working with King Kong!

" Jamie Williams- That Girl Productions

" Elaine Lee—Producer 5th and Sunset Los Angeles

The Helios is a great motorhome. Not only is it energy efficient but it offers a large space for production to work in. The copy machine is great because you can wirelessly print and make color copies and send faxes. The satellite phones came in handy when we realized we didn’t have any cell service on location. We received several compliments throughout the shoot day. Crew walked into the motorhome in awe of such a beautiful space.

" Courtney Witherspoon-Production Coordinator Three One O

I just wanted to send you a quick message and let you know how amazing Rich is. I have hired motos from all over and this was by far our best experience. Really nice to work with great people

" Crystal Raymond- Chinese Laundry

Thank you so much for lovely Eko lav — definitely the nicest port-a-potty I’ve ever used!

" Amanda – Producer
Thanks again for helping out with our party. The restrooms worked out great and the service was awesome as usual!
" Steve Brazeel

Rusty, Bruce and the guys at King Kong were a crucial asset to my photoshoot.  They took a lot of stress off of my plate and came through when I needed them, allowing me to focus 100% on the production.  Without a doubt, King Kong is now my go-to for production vehicles and I do not hesitate to recommend them to my colleagues.  And, not only is Rusty the best and most helpful driver I have ever had the pleasure of working with, he is also awesome with a fog machine!

" Brett Spencer-Producer,

We truly enjoyed working from the Helios, the attention to detail to make it an Eco friendly asset to our industry should be commended. The quiet workspace you get when running on the solar power is delightful! Rob was pleasant to be around and always willing to help out. Thank you Rob and King Kong for bringing us the Helios!

" Rochelle Savory-Assistant Production Supervisor

…the moho was super nice, everything was great! I will definitely rent it again!!

" Susan Borbely – Prod Coordinator

North Six has been working with King Kong for many years now.  Not only is their customer service unparalleled, but their fleet of motorhomes is always clean, reliable, and exactly what we need to support our photo productions.

Axe showerpooling promo raises brows

It’s one thing to save the world by sharing rides. Now, perhaps, by sharing the shower?

Unilever, one of the world’s largest consumer product makers, this week will unleash a controversial online ad campaign for its edgy Axe brand of men’s grooming products that urges college students to shower with a friend, or “an attractive stranger.”

Showerpooling (wink) is what they’re calling it. It’s all about conserving water (wink), the company says. “This is a cute irreverent way to communicate what is really a significant message: water conservation,” says Rob Candelino, vice president of marketing for U.S. skin care.

In a viral age where sex not only sells — but often goes viral — this is a made-for-Millennial campaign. Unilever has the company dialing up the dialogue to snare Gen Y. In a recent Kraft ad for Athenos, a Greek grandmother berates her granddaughter for dressing “like a prostitute.”

But will Unilever’s latest gambit for its Axe brand catch fire or backfire? Marketers are of mixed mind.

“The idea of showerpooling with strangers to save water is so over the top, you can’t take it seriously,” says brand consultant Laura Ries. The way most guys in college save water, she says, isn’t by showering less but by drinking beer instead of water.

“As a marketing tool, it’s brilliant,” says consumer psychologist Kit Yarrow. “But no matter how much young guys would like this fantasy to come true, this ad won’t make it happen.”

Candelino says that the showerpooling spot, which is to be posted on the Axe Facebook page, YouTube, and, is really about conserving water.

He says two-thirds of the brand’s target, guys ages 18 to 24, say they’re concerned about water conservation. But their actions don’t always reflect that, because the typical college student takes showers of nearly 18 minutes.

Axe is advocating five-minute showers with water-efficient shower heads. It’ll dispense 7,000 such Delta shower heads on 10 college campuses.

Candelino says Axe’s message is tongue-in-cheek. Does he showerpool? “I’m not ashamed to say that my wife and I have very healthy water-conservation habits.”
