National Geographic recently contracted me to work their vendor’s kid’s party and they placed me by a colorful balloon display sign that was 4′ x 8′ tall which I thought read Balloon Animals. I did not pay much more attention to the sign until a little while later when I really stopped and read the sign. It read “Animaloons”.
In talking with one of the marketing reps — she said “the name Animaloons was thought up in a brain storming session and we wanted to have a name for each entertainment stations.”
I found this personally amusing, because earlier in the month the agent contacted me and wanted to know my availability to work the National Geographic event in NY and if I couldn’t, could I recommend somebody. I recommend my friend Adam out of the New York area; and guess what his website is… animaloons.com. I found it amusing, because I had to work next to that sign all day.
