Why Mr President? Love or loath him his profile & comments are so engaging we had to do it!

Just pop the top with fun!

"LIKE EVERY GREAT IDEA IT STARTED WITH A BEER!!"

Here at Bottlepops we are all about celebrating life. Sharing laughs and smiles with family and friends and of course supporting our favourite sporting teams. It's our passion to continue to innovate and provide entertaining products for all occasions which encapsulates our day to day outlook for all to enjoy. 

The popping story began in 2004 over a quiet beer in Japan while returning to Australia after competing in beach volleyball tournaments across Europe. It was at this smallish bar where our old slogan came from "Like every great idea it started with a beer". It was 100% a light bulb moment which turned into years of discussion followed by years of research and development to capture the ever growing Bottlepops vision.

After a successful pitch on Channel 10's Shark Tank Australia (Season 1) in early 2015 we welcomed Andrew Banks to the Bottlepops family. 

Two years after we landed a life-changing investment on Shark Tank, we took on another strategic investor – serial entrepreneur – Shane Yeend has stepped in to bring some major licensing and global retail partners on board to boost Bottlepops into the global market. This includes our deal with Marvel launching with Deadpool, Black Panther, Hulk, Captain America and more. In Australia and New Zealand we have inked deals with the AFL and All Blacks.

So we started with a rendered design & the team nailed it, our focus is to give the highest quality in likeness to the characters we choose & create sound files that are short & fun.

 Then we said 'Hey let's 3D print this badboy'......We couldn't retain our excitement when his face came through.

So we decided to hand paint & add our cylinder.

We then assigned the talented comedian Ben Price who is one of the world best impersonators with the honour of creating the sound files for Mr president. We didn't have to try too hard to come up with content, he read some twitter feeds, watched a few press conferences and job done. 1 hour later we had up to 100 different sound files to chose from. I think you can tell from his video, Ben is an amazing talent.

Risks and challenges

Bottlepops have been producing talking openers for 3 years now, so we have our supply chain sorted. Tooling, QA & shipping still has it's challengers & we will be keeping all our backers with consistent updates on how this is tracking but we are very confident in delivering an awesome quality product.

I'm sure our backers would have 1 question around 'IP', the presidents IP is public domain, so we have focused purely on the presidents sayings & looks while having some fun with comical sayings around opening a beverage.
In no way are we out to offend anybody with the sound or look with the Mr President Bottlepop, it's all about 'Enhancing the fan experience'. I'm sure the president himself will enjoy using this opener & have a laugh.
