January 9, 2017 (St. Louis, MO) – What a way to bring in the New Year: St. Louis’ own BIGFOOT®, The Original Monster Truck®, was asked to display at the 2017 Bridgestone Winter Classic. And boy, did we jump at this opportunity! With the support of Bridgestone/Firestone and the National Hockey League, we were able to come up with an awesome design that fit this once in a lifetime event.
The 2017 Bridgestone Winter Classic BIGFOOT design started with a new shade of blue, provided by PPG paints, on a new off-road body, with Vinyl Images adding the custom, one-time graphics design wrap package.
“When BIGFOOT asks you to do your part as a St. Louis citizen for the 2017 NHL Winter Classic in St. Louis, your answer is ALWAYS…. YES!” exclaimed Joe Duever, Vinyl Images.
The truck was delivered into Busch Stadium on Friday, December 30, and placed directly across from Ballpark Village – what a great spot! You almost had to walk past it coming and going into the stadium, but fans who didn’t have tickets to the games could still see the truck just inside the fence.
Over 80,000 people attended this 3-day historic event at Busch Stadium, where anyone could participate in the various pre-game festivities in the parking lot of Ballpark Village, and ticket-holders could attend the Alumni game on Friday and/or the Winter Classic game itself on Monday, January 2, 2017. The placement of BIGFOOT made it the perfect photo opportunity before, during, and after each of the games!
We would personally like to say “THANK YOU” to Phil, Tim, and Kristin of Bridgestone/Firestone for giving us this awesome opportunity and to all of the people with the National Hockey League and Busch Stadium for all of their help.
In closing, “WooHoo and Congrats on your win – GO Blues!”
