Blue Man Group Las Vegas and Zappos Unveil interactive “ShoeZaphone” Installation on Wednesday, May 14
WHAT: Blue Man Group unveils its one-of-a-kind, foot-tapping (literally) installation during Zappos’ annual Bald and Blue fundraiser at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, May 14. Entitled “ShoeZaphone,” the sneaker-happy fixture encourages passersby to experiment and show their “sole” by creating a custom video display and soundtrack. The playful attraction will be permanently located in the lobby of Zappos’ downtown campus and symbolizes the developing partnership between Blue Man Group and the retailer.
During the event, a Zappos representative will give a quick remark on the on-going partnership between the companies and present the never-before-seen “ShoeZaphone.” In addition, the three Blue Men will be on hand to partake in the unveiling with their signature antics and crowd interaction.
