A few fun facts


Can you believe Run Free is already over a week behind us? It seems like only yesterday we were putting on the greatest fake marathon ever.

We were going back and collecting some cool stats, fun facts, and interesting stories from the race, and we decided "Hey, why not throw these into a blog post?" So we did. Check it out here!

Also, we wanted to let you guys know that we're launching our next project at midnight tonight! We're incredibly excited about this one. It's our most ambitious project to date, and the first time we'll be custom-manufacturing something!

The campaign kicks off at 12:01 AM EST, but you can click over to the preview page and check it out now. Would you help us get the word out?

We'll be posting more Run Free stuff in the next few days, as well as a ginormous post-mortem "What we learned from this project" post, which will go up in the near future. So keep your eyes peeled!

Until then, stay ridiculous!

      Sorry Judith! Because injection molds are so expensive ($5k-$10k apiece) it's very expensive to add additional phones, so we're just starting with iPhones for now. If it takes off, there's always the possibility of expanding to Android devices in the future!

      Funny idea, the WeeWow, but I'd be happier about it if Android phones were also included...
