In this feature length, internet only video we sought to expand the newly emerging genre of branded video content and feel we met the challenge by providing a highly entertaining and informative film about our company's most historic product. Incidentally, we found that by preserving the history of this brand (now in its 45th year) we also documented the history and contributions of the colorful character of some of the engineers and musicians who pioneered it and made it famous.
