Moving Right Along

As you may know, we here at The Royal Half are kinda fascinated with the Los Angeles Kings Marketing Department and their various campaigns. Well, add another form of media to the list of Kings Marketing Outreach as Tipster Doug sent in this photo taken this morning on one of Los Angeles’ great freeways.


Now I know what I’m getting for my next car. 

As the Kings continue their march from bottom dwellers in the Western Conference to Champions of the Pacific, I see no better product tie-in than a giant Kopitar billboard on the side and back of a moving van. Unless…. wait, you don’t think the Kings are quietly moving to Winnipeg or Quebec City after tonight’s game against the Calgary Flames, do you? I did see one of these trucks last week, but it was heading east on the 10. 


The Kings take on the Flames tonight at Staples. Be sure to check out The 4th Line Blog and Matchsticks and Gasoline, for all your news and notes Calgary. I’m sure we’ll be hearing from these guys a bunch as soon as Darryl Sutter gets off his lazy ass and trades Iginla to the Kings. 


There is a new t-shirt up in The Royal Half Gift Shoppe, designed by Indiana’s own Indiana Matt. It’s the perfect gift for the person in your life that loves Slovakia and mullets. 


Check out the rest of the t-shirts here. Now in women’s sizes. You know, for women!
