Does climbing inside a six-foot square and taking on its personality qualify as going the second mile? That’s exactly what our President and CEO, Cindy Marion, did last Saturday for our long-time client Planned Community Developers. All we can say is, Cindy had a blast. She came prepared with some of the corniest jokes we have ever heard that incorporated a square, box, or cube.
Our personal favorites:
“Who do you think my favorite rapper is? Ice CUBE!”
“How do you think I became this big? I ate three SQUARE meals a day!”
She even sang songs like “It’s Hip to be Square” and “I like big BOX and I cannot lie…” Both children and parents alike couldn’t help but stop and laugh at her comedic attempts.
So why did Cindy get in the square? Why not have someone else do it?
Because our client asked her to – and that was all she needed. The relationship MMI has built with PCD over the past 26 years is based on our commitment to overachieve and standing behind our ideas, and if that means working on her standup comedy, Cindy was happy to do it.
The night was a complete success. With over 1,500 Sugar Land residents coming out to Sugar Land Town Square to watch one of the biggest events of the year – Junior Superstar – quite a crowd gathered to the square to see just what was going on. By the end of the night, we passed out 300 t-shirts, 150 koozies, and 150 stress balls (in the shape of squares, of course).
We are looking forward to the next Get Squared! event, and we know the Sugar Land residents are too. Everyone kept asking, “When will the box be coming back?”
