How I tried to get attention at a festival... and FAILED
I read what you wrote, and it triggered a memory!
I was selling discounted comedy club tickets face-to-face at a festival. I hit on the idea - to get attention... I wore a multicolored clown wig on my head.
It didn't work.
But you know who sold the most comedy club tickets?
The results became clear when we all reported sales at the end of the day...
It was the young ladies selling comedy club tickets, wearing low cut tops (which were the fashion at the time)...
I'm just reporting a fact.
It was unfair... I didn't have the same equipment!
I think my "clown wig" idea didn't work, maybe because it wasn't unusual enough, maybe it wasn't funny enough, or surprising enough...
Maybe in the context of a festival (with all the amazing sights and sounds), it just didn't stand out enough!
But... I LOVE your idea!
It's a good one...
I think (at that time) I needed a better idea to stand out, entertain people, and ATTRACT people, in the context of a festival...!
