Felix Baumgartner’s lost Red Bull Chip, and gained Peace of Greenygrey

Hi, it’s Max Cliffwolf, PR guru at the Greenygrey. I was delighted to see that our cunning PR stunt worked last week, with the Greenygrey appearing on national television with the hero of the week, Felix Baumgartner. After Felix Baumgartner’s totally amazing and awe-inspiring space jump, the Red Bull usually associated with Felix was put out to pasture for a day, thanks to the Greenygrey.

Felix Baumgartner’s Flight Ambitions Realised with Space Jump

As the drawing below shows, Felix always wanted to do amazing flights, and he might have had a chip on his shoulder if he hadn’t been able to accomplish his ambitions.

Instead, in the accompanying photo he has a Red Bull on his shoulder, as well as leg and helmet; the energy drink‘s slogan is of course that ‘Red Bull gives you wings’, so it’s very appropriate.

But Felix wanted to jump from space, and this month accomplished his ultimate ambition with what Marc Latham described as the ‘moon landing moment of my life’.

Felix Baumgartner’s Greenygrey Interview with BBC

And as seen in the photos below, taken from a BBC interview with Jeremy Paxwolf after Felix’s space jump, with the help of my cunning PR stunt, Felix has totally lost his chip, and his Red Bull, and looks totally relaxed with a Greenygrey on his shoulder:

So if the Red Bull slogan is that it ‘gives you wings’, maybe the Greenygrey’s should be that it ‘brings you peace’.

I’m going to send that to the Board of Greenygreyisms. To get a passed greenygreyism on my blog debut would be a dream. I didn’t make a drawing of it though!

England Manager Roy Hodgson Statue in Glorious Greenygrey

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, sports correspondent at the Greenygrey. After the Queen got into the Greenygrey spirit in what has been a very greenygrey weather-landscape week, we were amazed to see the England football manager copying her today (okay, it is a PR stunt by a leading bookmaker).

Images of a 100-feet (30 metres) England football coach Roy Hodgson statue made out in glorious greenygrey on the Dover cliffs are appearing in the British media .

The Greenygrey is not a miracle worker, and the England team is depleted, so we can’t predict a tournament win, but we wish the England team well. Here’s some images, with the story and more images linked to from the images:
