The PUSH Agency was approached with a super unique concept to supply both event staff and Micro Influencers for ESPNs summer Flash Mob promotion in New York City. ESPNs filming of their 30 for 30 segment, titled "The Good, The Bad, The Hungry" was centered around the history of the hot dog eating world, primarily the feud between reigning champion Joey Chestnut and rival Takeru Kobayashi. To help PUSH the premier ratings and generate a big buzz, the ultimate hot dog flash mob (aka Joey fanclub) was created and hired to attend The Mets baseball game with the champ himself.
PUSH recruited a combination of 60 brand ambassadors, 10 actors, and 5 social media Influencers through their extensive database. Understanding the clients specific needs, all staff members were screened for vibrant energy as well as a love for sports. All participants would also need to be comfortable wearing a massive hot dog costume for nearly 8 hours. PUSH then selected the most enthusiastic talent to rally behind the assignment. Educating the team on client goals, providing clear social media posting guides, delivering onsite management, and outlining a thorough timeline were all key aspects in ensuring success for the large scale event.
There always lies a challenge is staffing large quantities of individuals, throw in the required oversized food costume and the difficulty nearly doubles. However the PUSH team successfully employed all 75 requested hot dogs who all showed up on time and excited to work come game day. Creating a real buzz on the streets of New York, ambassadors went above and beyond in announcing their support and showcasing authentic enthusiasm for the shows leading man. Additionally, the social media Influencers ginuwine love for the experience caused them to share well above what was originally requested of them. The post-event feedback from not only the client and team, but the public was truly incredible. A one of a kind event that had people talking for well over a week past the activation.
Just wanted to let you know that the promo girls have been doing a great job and were well schooled about the Jack Daniel's Brand. This group has been the best we've had at any activation in the country. Thanks again for all your help and support on this event!
Alliance Beverage Distributing Co. has had a great success with PUSH. They always come through when I need them last minute. The models are always on time and represent our brands extremely well. They are very professional and I look forward to continue working with them in the future.
We had very positive experiences working with PUSH MODELS. You were both professional and easy to work with in scheduling the promotional models and spokesmodels. We will definitely be working with you on future events. Thanks again, from all of us at the Tempe Music Festival.
I must say your staff has been on time each and every day, furthermore these women are the most attractive/sociable staff I have worked with nationwide... You have earned our business both locally and nationally, thank you guys for everything.
Just wanted to thank you for hooking us up with Sarah for our recent PAX and GameStop store manager events. She was a total rock star – by far the most hardworking and courteous ambassador I’ve ever worked with. Look forward to working with PUSH more in the future.
We look forward to the next opportunity to work with you and the Push team. We appreciate your professionalism in sourcing and managing talent for game demonstration and the added value you bring to the table with survey creation, training, tracking, and post show recap.

Arian was fantastic. I was super impressed with her. She was able to come in with zero training on the product, learn it quickly, and in a matter of minutes, was explaining it to the visitors at our booth. Thanks for everything, especially helping me find someone on short notice!

Great news, both girls were great and have been the best promo models we've worked with to date - very professional and very quick on their toes.
All 6 girls in CA2 did a great job. They knew how to approach spectators, represent the brand effectively, and manage their time on-site. The girls all took our training seriously, and made valiant efforts to distribute all product by the end of the weekend. I Strongly reccomend them for upcoming promotions in our area, and will use them as examples moving forward.
Thanks again for the help and personal attention we received from you, Jonathan and the rest of the staff at Push. We really enjoyed working with all of you and if we have another event where we need talent like this, you will be our choice!

Shanelle and Brandee did a fantastic job at our event. My team was impressed with their level of professionalism and personable attitudes throughout the event...I love to give kudos when they are so deserved. Thank you for your ability to be flexible in finding me such exceptional talent so quickly.
The model was great. She was on time each day (early the first day), friendly, helpful and a good sport about performing the test over and over again. She stayed in the booth the entire day with a short break only for lunch. She also stayed until the very end every day. Overall a good experience, and we will look at using you again for all 4 of our meetings next year.

I was very happy with all of the models, I would recommend each of the ladies for future events and will definitely use them again for any of my upcoming events. Each did a wonderful job with the guests and handling the liquor. I look forward to working with your company again in the future.
Thank you so much for organizing everything for our event last night! We were SO pleased with the girls. They were all energetic, fun and professional. Nicoletta was a wonderful team lead and really took control of making sure everything went smoothly. Looking forward to working with you again in the future.
