Olly Oogleberry? Is this a character you are familiar with? I wasn’t until a couple of weeks ago when a little bio appeared in my inbox from Olly’s agent. Take a look:
“I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to my client, Olly Oogleberry. Olly is a lovable alien who has traveled 11 million light years from his home planet of Oogleberry and landed on Earth. He and his friends have one mission: to teach and inspire young Earthlings. With the U.S. Space Program coming to a halt, Olly has arrived just in time to keep the spirit of exploration alive.
Olly Oogleberry believes that within each and every one of us there is an explorer eager for adventure. Ollyoogleberry.com is an entire site devoted to the world around us and the galaxy that we live in. Through videos, stories, games, and more Olly shares his discoveries and knowledge of the universe with all of his visitors and encourages us to let our imagination run free. In a time where space travel has been overlooked and taken for granted, Olly’s only hope is that we never stop believing in the unknown.
This fall Olly has launched his new line of apparel to spread the word of his arrival and bring out the alien in all of us. If we can’t travel to space, we may as well wear it by donning Olly’s shirts. For the holidays Olly is also launching new gear including skateboards, iPhone cases, speakers, a published collection of his adventures and more.”
I’m sure if you win you can request a shirt more suitable for a boy. Unless you have a boy who likes pink t-shirts and I don’t care about that. More power to you. Anyway.
