Blue Bunny Facepaintings!

I had an early call time yesterday morning at 3:30am for a very interesting and fun job: 8 face-paintings for Blue Chip Marketing Worldwide for a guerrilla marketing campaign throughout the hot spots in Chicago promoting Blue Bunny Ice Cream which is new to the Windy City and is available at Jewel. Eight improv actors from Chicago's Second City were wearing giant Blue Bunny Ice Cream carton heads created by and roaming various locations in Chicago spreading the word at Navy Pier, Lincoln Park Zoo, Water Tower Place, Wrigley Field, Ogilvie Transportation Center, Millennium Park, and other places in Chicago. One of the characters even got on NBC morning news! Each face-painting took about 30 minutes.

Here are the two NBC 5 News Clips
(He totally startled the news anchors in the first clip!!):

Below are some pictures from the face-painting applications. I hope to get pictures of them in action on location soon.
