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!

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.

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!

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 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!

March Madness ad haul spirals higher than any sport

The Super Bowl and NFL playoffs are a hoot and the World Series rocks, but no sports championship series takes in more TV ad revenue than the NCAA men’s college basketball championships.

Sorry, NFL icons. Too bad, baseball superstars. March Madness has slam-dunked you.

Total TV ad revenue for the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s men’s basketball tournament surpassed $1 billion for the first time in 2012 — making it larger than any professional post-season sports championship, reports Kantar Media, a media research specialist.

And it will only get bigger this year on the multi-channeled CBS and TBS broadcasts. But the driver isn’t just the numbers — it may also be cultural.

“People want to believe in something,” says Barbara Lippert, advertising and pop culture columnist at MediaPost.com. “You get to see these kids before they get all corrupt.”

The metrics favor college basketball. There are 68 teams competing for the college basketball championship, playing many more post-season games than baseball’s run to the World Series or pro football’s playoffs and Super Bowl.

“Football may be the national pastime, but college basketball is in the driver’s seat,” says Jon Swallen, chief research officer at Kantar.

No one else has hit that $1 billion post-season plateau. The NFL post-season took in $976 million in TV ad spending last year, Kantar reports. The NBA’s postseason totaled $537 million. Major League Baseball was a distant third at $354 million.

Ad prices for the college basketball championship game will hit a high-water mark this year, too, at about $1.4 million per 30-second slot. (This year’s Super Bowl 30-second slots on CBS cost up to $3.8 million.)

Credit the college crowd.

“More upsets and crazy things happen in college sports,” Lippert says. “That’s why they call it March Madness.”
