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.

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.

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!

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!

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!

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!

Hyundai yanks suicide ad

The ad was meant to be humorous: the victim finds out he is in a zero-emission car

Hyundai has yanked an ad meant to poke humor at attempts to commit suicide in cars.

The viral online campaign featured a man trying to asphyxiate himself from his car’s exhaust. He runs a hose from the car’s tailpipe to the cabin, with the windows taped up. He fails in his attempt . The punchline? He discovers the car is a Hyundai zero-emission vehicle.

Hyundai later issued a statement: “We at Hyundai Motor America are shocked and saddened by the depiction of a suicide attempt in an inappropriate European video featuring a Hyundai. Suicide merits thoughtful discussion, not this type of treatment.” The ad was created by an overseas ad agency, Innocean Europe, and had no connection to Hyundai’s U.S. operations.

Suicide prevention activists expressed relief that the ad has been banished.

“We know from research that graphic depictions of suicide in the media can inadvertently lead to further suicides, a phenomenon known as contagion,” said Robert Gebbia, executive director for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. “This advertisement was particularly graphic and potentially dangerous. We are pleased that Hyundai has decided to pull this campaign.”

The Independent, an English newspaper, reported that the ad started running last week and that the campaign ended abruptly after an outcry. Indeed, the ad can no longer be found on YouTube. One blogger blistered Hyundai, saying the ad brought back memories of her own father’s death when he gassed himself in his car.

The blogger, Holly Brockwell, who works in advertising in London, wrote that the ad made her cry.
