Gas Station TV Unites Ad Community With Beer Pong Party

July 15, 2010

NEW YORK, July 15 /PRNewswire/ — To celebrate the resurging growth of the advertising industry, Gas Station TV (GSTV) will reunite the media community through the first annual NYC Beer Pong Invitational on July 28, 2010. The event is presented in combination with BPONG.com and acclaimed director, Adam Hootnick.

“Now that the media economy is back, we have an opportunity to redefine the way we interact within our community. This time around we should recognize not to take ourselves too seriously and celebrate with clients, agencies, creatives and even our competitors. What better way to do this than through Beer Pong, a band, BBQ, a live graffiti show, and 500 media folks – all of which are excited to express the joy in the business,” said Jason Brown, Chief Sales Officer of Gas Station TV.

Ad industry professionals, who are interested in attending or forming a team, may request registration at nyrsvp@gstv.com.

The Invitational will be filmed by Adam Hootnick as a pilot episode for a new beer pong tour reality show series.

“The only thing more fun than beer pong is a reality show about beer pong. This will be our version of the world series of poker,” said Hootnick, director of the award winning film Unsettled, as well as multiple documentaries for MTV, and NBC News.

Officials from BPONG.COM, the official governing body of beer pong and the Center of the Beer Pong Universe(TM), will be on hand to run the tournament, keep track of scoring and give out a grand prize to the winning team.
