KCL’s Superbowl Mascot… did you see it?

… Or did the lights go out? 😉

My wife’s Mascot barely got finished in time for the Superbowl. Shipped the day before, but seeing as how the lights went out and the person that wore it was in the dark anyway, he probably feel into a hole created by Bane. And yes, I’m always the guinea pig to wear such things… Although check out those guns, baby!

Helmet

Fireball slops it for CHELSEA LATELY…

So there I was. Standing dormant… when all of a sudden I get a call from the CHELSEA LATELY Show.

“Can you build us a Bicycle Helmet?” The voice on the phone says…

I’m like, “What?”

And he’s like, “Yea, we need an oversized helmet for Chelsea’s brother who has a huge noggen.”

And I’m like… “Cha.” And off we went to set to take a head cast off of Roy, Chelsea’s bro. And yes, he’s got a serious cranium, so we had to use a lot of plaster. And it was messy. But the finished helmet, sculpted by our cool sculptor Bob (you can see below), turned out smokin’ hot and fit perfect. Stay tuned for the episode where you’ll get to see us cast that HUGE head! But I warn you… Chelsea is hardcore and get’s in people’s faces.

“Boys head gots it’s own weather system! It’s like an orange on a toothpick!” So I Married and Axe Murderer.

Off to SAN FRANCISCO…

Yea, my wife’s always getting me into weird things. Since she builds wild character costumes for movies and promotion, I’m being forced to drive to San Francisco and help deliver two of these little guys. Actually, they’re huge. This is Mr. Helmet for PG&E. He goes to all the schools and gives talks about saving energy. And that, folks, is a good thing as it’s something we all need to do. She did the first Mr. Helmet about 5 years ago which premiered here in this commercial. Since then, she’s done about 20 more. THAT’S A LOT OF HELMETS! (And guess who wore the costume in the commercial? Yes, me.)

While we’re in San Fran, we’ll do some Christmas shopping. It’s is a great city to shop in for Xmas. It’s way cold, lots of holiday cheer, cable cars where everyone has a cold red nose, and Union Square is cool. We’ll take our pillow killing cockerpoos with us, too. Maybe they can take out their frustration on the hotel couch?

Oh, and the best part? We get to drive a massive White Chevy Cargo Van to carry the Helmets in. You ever drift a Cargo Van? …You Have?? Well, I bet you’ve never had huge Helmets in the back!!! Cha!

This last photo was one we got back after a truck backed over it. Guess Helmets really aren’t that safe after all…
