Tom Brady bobble head production goes horribly wrong for local company

In an interesting turn of events, the manufacturer of the new Tom Brady bobble head that celebrates the four* NFL championships won by Tom Brady and New England Patriots, has accidentally manufactured thousands of the wrong bobble head! With multiple websites like Amazon.com and bobbleheads.com and other retailers selling the new collectible Tom Brady / Patriots bobble head, orders were coming in from everywhere. In the confusion, the manufacturer accidentally produced and shipped the wrong Tom Brady bobble head – a design that was floating around the company as a joke.

Here it is:

The company, Bobble Head Statues of America, LTD, not only produced the deflategate version, but also mailed them out to almost 100,000 customers before getting word back from loyal Patriots fans in Boston and across the globe on what had happened. The owner and CEO, William Brown, released this statement today:

“We sincerely apologize for this mishap. We highly respect the Patriot nation, Boston, New England and Tom Brady fans worldwide. Once the small issue was discovered we couldn’t stop production or shipping. All that happens from another country. Just to be clear 90% of the bobble head is actually correct, which is literally a passing grade, but it turns out the 10% that is not correct really doesn’t sit well with 100% of our Patriot, NFL and Tom Brady fans. We will be sending replacement pieces of inflated balls, and non-smashed iPhones for everyone to update their limited edition Tom Brady bobble head as fast as our 3D printer will make them. We apologize for the inconvenience, but hope everyone’s Brady bobble head will have the opportunity to be adjusted before his day in court. We truly want Tom’s name and his bobble head cleared up soon. Our unintended production in no way was meant to give credit to Patriot haters or anyone that would refer to the team as the New England Deflatriots. There’s a lesson to be learned here and we hope to find out what that is.”

You can’t simply restore a man’s bobble head, once it’s been desecrated like this in public. I am destroying every bobble head I’ve ever collected.

Here is the original designed bobble head the company was meant to produce, and obviously shows Brady with the correct hand gesture and fully inflated ball.

The bobble head company CEO also noted in his statement they are halting production on the newly designed Roger Goodell bobble head until the NFL decides where and how to distribute the ‘limited-run’ production. Gisele Bündchen could not be reached for comment but the company did verify she ordered and received several of the faulty bobble heads, and will get the updated iPhones and balls to replace the bad productions.

Video bumpers for live events

Standard

A simple video bumper for your live event can give the event a nice feel. For a few years I got to work with Worship Leader Magazine and run some of their marketing initiatives and social media. This killer intro piece was done by my friend and fellow creative Jessie Morrow of Morrow Design Co a few years back for the National Worship Leader Conference by Worship Leader Magazine.

Need a video bumper? Let me know.

You won’t believe her reaction when she finds out her bill has already been paid

Proud of my boy Rob Westerman and all the work he and his church, SNC Norwood, are doing in Cincinnati. He recorded this with his friend and talented Cincinnati native, Mike Lewis of Jesus Painter Ministries. This is much more than a ‘pay it forward’ initiative. As Rob explained to me of all the final quotes Paul shared from Jesus with the Ephesian leaders before he went back to Jerusalem, it was this quote from Jesus that he left them with in Acts chapter 20, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” The full verse is here:

Acts 20:35 In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, It is more blessed to give than to receive. ”

Here is the local news coverage. Just one day after it was shared it had over 5.1 Million views, and now 10 million views as of this post! For a few hours work and $400 dollars it’s a good lesson to any business or organization to create moments that are sharable, and doing it is NOT expensive. As SNC Norwood states on their facebook page, just $400 showed love to over 5 million people.


So go, and give. It’s better than receiving.

Heart Won’t Stop Lyrics and link to the Chord Chart:

Verse 1: There is not a man or a beast, nothing on the land or underneath, Oh nothing that could ever come between,  the love you have for me

I could lay my head in Sheol, I could make my bed at the bottom of the darkness deep, Oh but there is not a place I could escape you

Chorus: Your heart won’t stop coming after me,Your heart won’t stop coming after me, Your heart won’t stop coming after me

Verse 2: There is not an angel of the stars, there is not a devil in the dark, Oh nothing that could change the way you are, the love you have for me

I could lay my head in Sheol, I could make my bed at the bottom of the darkness deep, Oh but there is not a place I could escape you

Chorus: Your heart won’t stop coming after me,Your heart won’t stop coming after me, Your heart won’t stop coming after me

I could lay my head in Sheol, I could make my bed at the bottom of the darkness deep, Oh but there is not a place I could escape you

Chorus: Your heart won’t stop coming after me,Your heart won’t stop coming after me, Your heart won’t stop coming after me
