Equestrian Vaulting

I saw a version of this last night at the Rodeo. It looks very tricky but difficult to take seriously.

Tropicana brings the sun to Inuvik, Canada

       “Juice brand Tropicana wanted to highlight the fact that sunlight plays an important role in the morning ritual of millions of Canadians, to coincide with the launch of its newest juice, Tropicana Essentials, with added calcium and vitamin D.

      In order to do this, Tropicana spent a month in Inuvik, one of the country’s northernmost towns, during the coldest and darkest days of the winter. The 3,500 residents of the Arctic town in the Northwest Territories live without a sunrise for several weeks every winter. Tropicana literally brought a brighter morning to Inuvik with a giant artificial sun that emitted 100,000 lumens of light. A team of Canadian filmmakers captured the raising of the ’sun’ in Inuvik for a series of documentary-style commercials.

      The lights were affixed to a 36-foot wide helium balloon which then rose and illuminated the town. The Tropicana Brand’s ’sunrise’ coincided with Inuvik’s annual Sunrise Festival, which celebrates the return of sunlight after weeks of relative darkness."

You may remember The LXD from their performance on SYTYCD or have seen the trailers for their upcoming web series. They're also performing at The Oscars tonight thus making this the only Oscars I have ever rearranged my schedule to watch. They are phenomenal to say the least.
