“Happiness runs in a circular motion” – Donovan
What do a Canadian writer with Turkish background, an Aussie with South American influence, and a rockstar in China have in common? Of course, it’s Coca-Cola. The world’s most famous carbonated, caffeinated corn syrup concoction is sponsoring an adventure called Expedition 206 (tag line: “Happiness Goes Around”) and one of the three finalist teams includes Brendan Madden, a guitarist in the Qingdao-based band the Dama Llamas.
Since Expedition 206 will send a team of 3 documentarians to 206 countries in 2010, a better candidate than Brendan (aka Seabass) would be hard to find. Seabass and mate Dave Kellogg are some of the finest travel videographers to work in China, and their venture In Deep Films has produced content for Lonely Planet, Haier, and more.
Supporters of Team Wow! can vote online once per day until November 6 at www.Expedition206.com. We wish Brendan, EZ, and Greer the best of luck and look forward to seeing the video, photos and blogs from their 150,000 mile journey. Here’s hoping Brendan will be doing the real thing all year long in 2010. Jia You!
