Bango Box

Bucks Birdbox parody freshens up a mascot contest.

Bucks had a fun and topical twist on their inflatable race called Bango Box (after the Netflix show Bird Box).

Bird Box – When a mysterious force decimates the population, only one thing is certain — if you see it, you die. The survivors must now avoid coming face to face with an entity that takes the form of their worst fears. Searching for hope and a new beginning, a woman and her children embark on a dangerous journey through the woods and down a river to find the one place that may offer sanctuary. To make it, they’ll have to cover their eyes from the evil that chases them — and complete the trip blindfolded.

I like how this freshened up the race and wasn’t a forced skit idea.  As we have talked about on the podcast writing skits can be heard and instead using your stock inventory as the basis for a playful run-up can freshen up the contest as well as give your mascot some room to write and perform.

You can see the more standard version of the Bucks contest in our High 5 – Milwaukee Bucks feature.

Listen to me… Under no circumstances are you allowed to take off your blindfold 🙈
