BulletTrain Hotness: Carleigh W
First Civilian To Own A BulletTrain Express!!!
Christmas 2010 Thank You
Tyson is a member of the BulletTrain team and he did much of the foundational work on the all-new BulletTrain.com web site and he also did a lot of work on the upcoming 2.0 version of BulletTrain.com which will go live some time in the next month.
When I first mentioned the idea of the BulletTrain Express Keyboard Platform to Tyson, he said "That is stupid. I would never want anything like that," but then when he saw the first generation prototype he fell in love with it.
For those of you old enough to remember, Tyson is like the kid in the old LIFE Cereal commercials named Mikey. In the LIFE Cereal commercials, they said "Let's get Mikey. He hates everything." Then Mikey likes it and the other kids are surprised. Tyson is basically Mikey. In other words, for me as a designer, Tyson is the ultimate litmus test, becasuse I know Tyson is really picky, and if he likes it, everybody else will ;-)
To make a short story long, since Tyson setup the shopping cart, he was the very first person to buy a BulletTrain Express on the first day they were available. Actually, he bought two. The second one was a gift for his friend Carleigh who is pictured above hugging her BulletTrain Express giving the "Two Thumbs Up!!!"
Tyson picked up her keyboard and I mentioned we had not shipped out any BulletTrain Expresses yet, and that Carleigh would be the first person, not related to BulletTrain to own and use a BulletTrain Express Keyboard Platform, and I mentioned to Tyson he should let her know she was the first to receive a BulletTrain Express.
Carleigh took this photo of herself recently and sent it in an email to Tyon and said:
"Cheesy sales man smile, but quality product. Two Thumbs Up! Thankkkk You Tyson!"
I mentioned to Tyson that Carliegh has an amazing smile and I wish she would hug me like the BulletTrain Express while giving the Two Thumbs Up!!!! ;-P
There are a few other things that come to mind when I look at this image. First is how fascinating it is for me as the designer to see peoples emotional response to the BulletTrain Express Keyboard Platform. In other words, when was the last time you saw a photo of somebody hugging or posing with a keyboard!?!
Secondly, it is also amazing for me to notice the emotional response females are having to the BulletTrain Express Keyboard!!! Women in general seem to really like it, and one girlfriend of mine mentioned she thought it was so cute, clean and sexy, and she continued "In many ways, The BulletTrain Express is like a piece of jewelry. It is metal and beautifully shaped, but when you walk in a room and see the BulletTrain Express on a desk or coffee table, it really makes a powerful fashion statement!!!"
Note: By the way, it is an urban legend and not true that Mikey died from eating too many Pop Rocks ;-))) If you are enough to remember Pop Rocks, smile, and if you have no idea what Pop Rocks are, you can also smile :-)))
