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

" Amanda – 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!

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

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

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!

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

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

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

" Susan Borbely – Prod Coordinator

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

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

King Kong has great motorhomes and the best drivers in the business. Working with you guys is always easy and a pleasure.

" Cat Burkley-Portfolio One

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

You guys are the BEST!

The real reason that GM booted its ad chief

The real reason that General Motors ousted its high-energy, former superstar ad director didn’t have much to do with a soccer deal gone awry, which the automaker cited in disclosing the departure to reporters.

Rather, the Detroit Free Press, citing analysts and insiders,reports Joel Ewanick, global vice president for marketing, was forced to resign over his inability to maintain or increase market share under his leadership.

He’s just the latest to go, given the executive revolving door that has marked the giant automaker lately. Ewanick followed 17 marketing executives who changed jobs or left the company, and he’s the fourth in a year.

ALSO ON DRIVE ON:  Ewanick’s ouster puts giant automaker’s ad budget in play

“GM’s ‘culture’ — such as it is — was never going to get comfortable with a Joel Ewanick for very long,” the Freepquotes Peter DeLorenzo, creator of the blog and a former Detroit advertising director, as saying. “He’s too quick, at times mercurial, and too much a man of motion for the plodding calcification of the GM system.”

The Freep validates the theory that it wasn’t a single bad deed that cost Ewanick his job. Rather, it was a “last straw” scenario:



Ewanick was known as much for the money he didn’t spend as for what he did. In May just before Facebook’s much-hyped initial public offering, GM announced it would stop paying for ads on the social network because the $10 million it spent the previous year didn’t translate to enough vehicle sales.

Days later, he said GM would not advertise during the telecast of the 2013 Super Bowl because the rate of $4 million per 30 seconds that CBS demanded was too expensive.

Partnering with soccer teams was a way to boost Chevrolet’s brand recognition in Europe and Asia, consistent with CEO Dan Akerson’s goal of making it a global brand.

In the U.S., GM’s marketing strategy has yielded mixed results. Internal discussions over the success of the tagline “Chevy Runs Deep” have not resulted in any change yet.

Ewanick launched a “Love It or Return It” program earlier this month that allowed Chevrolet buyers to return their vehicles between now and Labor Day if they are not satisfied and if they have driven the vehicle less than 4,000 miles. Chevrolet also has adopted comedian-actor Tim Allen as its advertising voice.

Some analysts say all GM brands will do better in the next 18 months as crucial new models come to market. Those include the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu, the Cadillac XTS and ATS and all-new Chevrolet and GMC pickups reaching showrooms late next year.
