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

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

" Dan Kae—Assistant Production Supervisor
Thanks again for helping out with our party. The restrooms worked out great and the service was awesome as usual!
" Steve Brazeel

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!

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.

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

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,

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

You guys are the BEST!

" Marie D’Amore—Production Supervisor, HSI

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
King Kong has the best equipment & drivers in the biz.
" Tom Baker – gangboss

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

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

King Kong… top notch service, incredible drivers, clean, well equipped vehicles, on time—every time! Thanks guys…. you ROCK!!!

Latest election spin is marketer PR

There’s a brand new spin whirring around the elections, but this time it’s not coming from the candidates. It’s coming from PR-hungry marketers.

Several top consumer brands — including Pizza Hut, JetBlue and Cabbage Patch Kids — are dangling PR stunts that are election-themed and consumer-engaging. To attract eyeballs, they’re also wacky.

“The media loves stunts,” says PR guru Ronn Torossian. “If you want to clear the clutter, well-timed, creative stunts can make headlines.”

Or, they can implode — particularly around elections. “Emotions run very high,” warns brand consultant Tracey Riese. “Being identified with one side or another will alienate half your audience.”

STORY: 7-Eleven, Boston Market, Maker’s Mark get political with ads

Here’s the PR lineup:

— Free pizza for life. Pizza Hut on Tuesday will announce plans to give free pizza “for life” to any consumer who asks President Obama and Mitt Romney if they prefer sausage or pepperoni pizza during the Town Hall debate on Oct. 16. (That means a $520 gift card every year for up to 30 years.)

Yes, debate questions are pre-screened, but Pizza Hut hopes someone will ask it, anyway.

The choice of sausage or pepperoni is irrelevant, notes marketing chief Kurt Kane, since with Pizza Hut’s Dinner Box promo, you can get both and breadsticks and one side dish for $19.99.

“Neither candidate has clarified their message,” explains Kane. “For a brand like us that knows what we’re about, it’s an opportunity to get the message out.”

— Free trip out of the country. JetBlue is promising “Election Protection” to about 1,000 disappointed voters whose candidates lose — with a chance to win a free flight out of the country (and back) the day after the election. “We decided to give people a chance to follow through on their claim to skip town if their candidate comes up short,” says Marty St. George, senior VP of marketing.

— Cabbage Patch candidates. Cabbage Patch Kids maker JAKKS Pacific will be auctioning on eBay, via a fundraiser for Rock the Vote, a line of dolls that look like the two candidates — and their VPs. (There’s also a Michelle Obama doll.)

“We’re part of pop culture,” explains Jennifer Caveza, senior VP of marketing. “Attaching the brand to the election is a way to reinforce its relevance.”

But value is in the eye of the beholder. In a similar fundraiser in 2008, the Obama doll went for $8,400, but the Sarah Palin doll pulled in a cool $19,000.
