This September, Manual for Speed and This Is Not Pete Morris met in the one & only place on Planet Earth suitable for showcasing our second-ever Team Kit offering: the Circus Circus in Las Vegas, Nevada. Why the Circus Circus? Well if its not obvious to you now, it will be by the time you’re halfway through this HAVS. Here’s a hint(s): Lights! Color! Action! And An Unfair Advantage! We needed a place that could deliver all that and more, and Circus Circus did just that. From Elevator Banks and Restricted Alleyways to the Pulse-Pounding Arcade, Market Express, Auntie Anne’s, Midway Center Stage and the Adventuredome, Circus Circus offers exactly the kind of unimaginable, unyielding and unequaled assault on all of six or seven or however many of our senses we had hoped for. It was brighter, louder, nastier, more malodorous, and more repugnant on every level in and in every manner than we could have dreamed. Simply put, no other place in the universe offers a better, more suitable contrast to what we believe is clinically precise and emotionally powerful perfection in the form of wearable color and Unfair Advantage-based excellence. Also, where else can you do a mildly disruptive/objectionable HAVS photo shoot for two hours without interruption or complaint, then get physically and legally removed from the premises for photographing a recently repaired hole in the wall next to a water fountain while your colleagues get foot massages from a dude wearing blue latex gloves? Nowhere, that’s where.

 

Side note: Getting a foot massage from a dude wearing blue latex gloves is better than it sounds—the key is to never make eye contact. In fact, Dear Blue Latex Glove Wearing Foot Massagers, if you’re reading this, what about erecting a privacy wall of some sort between you and your clients, in which a hole could be made for your client to put his/her feet through? The effect would not be unlike that of a “glory hole,” for foot massages. Talking would still be possible and enjoyable, but the possibility of an accidental Eye Contact Moment (ECM) would be eliminated.
