Boombotix Portable Speaker Infomercial

You may have seen the famous Music Bullet on TV, but you should expect more from your portable speakers.  We tried our very hardest to do a mini speaker infomercial that would venture into the depths of cheesy.  It is hard to outdo the Music Bullet, but we tried.  HARD.

Half of our team jumped into this shot and it was a lot of fun setting things up.  I’ve never been depressed enough to be dumping down a flask of Jack Daniels in the bath tub.  I’d like to say that Chris has never chomped his way through a donut, ice cream and bag of chips.  But that would be a lie.  And Ben, well he is a mad scientist anyways, so he fit the role just fine.  Big thanks to Liz for getting naked on camera and sacrificing her angelic public image.

Nick brought the full production together start to finish.  Killed it with adding some cheddar to the cheese.  The ironic thing about the infomercial is that there is an element of truth to it.    When I think about how music fills a lot of voids in my life, I realized a couple things.  Music allows me to evade depression.  Music rejuvenates.  It allows us to find love, and brings us to new places.  We love music.  And we’re F*c%ing LOUD.
