Working The National Geographic event

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.

  1. Hi Adam

    I would inform them, that they forgot to place the trademark logo after the word Animalloos. If they were using this as a public advertising tool for an event then yes I would suggest that you talk to someone. But consider this… they hired you, so using your Animaloons name is a representation of you.
