Sample Promotion:

Imagine your next game featuring a sponsored race on the court. The race would feature two contestants….and each contestant would be riding on the back of a giant chicken! The contestants race from one end of the court and try to make a basket while perched on the giant poultry. The first one to make the basket wins dinner at the local Kentucky Fried Chicken (or similar sponsor).

Featured Use – Seattle Storm:

This year the Seattle Storm (WNBA) added Rider™ costumes to their entertainment inventory, and did so in a innovative way.  Here is the Storm’s video element that they use in-game.  The integrated players and added a nest with some hilarious results.

Another Rider has been used as part of a popular entertainment act for the Crazy Hot Dog Vendor (who also won a Best Mascot Honorable Mention Award on Gameops.com).  He rides a Ostrich Rider as part of his act.
