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

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

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

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,

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.

" Kyd Kisvarday—Producer, North 6

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

" Amanda – Producer

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

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.

Company ad campaigns get political

Folks who’ve had their fill of political ads for President Obama and Mitt Romney are being subjected to another onslaught of politically themed ads from consumer product giants selling something more concrete than the political promises: stuff.

  • Liquid votes: 7-Eleven's cups have prediction power. 

There’s bourbon (Maker’s Mark). There’s coffee (7-Eleven). There’s chicken (Boston Market). And there’s office services (FedEx).

But these marketers may be taking a risk by getting cozy with politics in an emotional election. “This is a tight election with massive polarization,” says Daniel Howard, marketing professor at Southern Methodist University. “This is not something I’d want to associate my brand with.”

How marketers are voting:

•7-Eleven. For the fourth-consecutive presidential election, the chain is asking its customers to help predict the outcome. If you’re an Obama supporter, you’re being asked to buy coffee in blue cups. If you’re a Romney supporter, it’s red cups. The chain keeps a running tab on the purchases and updated results will be posted daily on a micro-site. For four elections running, 7-Eleven’s “poll” results have virtually mirrored real election results.

“This program is meant to be a bright spot amidst political campaigning,” CEO Joe DePinto says.

Regular cups are available for undecided customers or those who don’t want to tout their vote.

•Maker’s Mark bourbon. What are James Carville and Mary Matalin doing in a bourbon ad instead of on Meet the Press? Shilling, of course. The political party they both support: The Cocktail Party. “Maker’s Mark has always been interested in creating conversation, and we knew that this would do that,” says Jason Dolenga, U.S. brand director.

•Boston Market. A micro-site with a voting function allows folks to vote for turkey or chicken to determine which Market Bowl “candidate” is their favorite. Voters can get a coupon valid for a free Market Bowl with any Market Bowl purchase and a fountain drink, says Sara Bittorf, chief brand officer.

FedEx Office. In a TV spot, two local politicians agree to a clean campaign. But one candidate, whose last name is Taylor, discovers his rival has printed signs that say: “Honk if you’ve had an affair with Taylor.”

That sign almost didn’t win out in the ad, says Steve Pacheco, director of advertising.

Other signs considered for the ad: “Taylor is a cannibal,” and, perhaps worst of all, “Taylor hates puppies.”
