Bigfoot Tamed by Simbree Energy Foods of Seattle in the Family Film DVD release of "Bigfoot"
Simbree, a Seattle based energy foods company, is featured in the October, 2009 family film DVD release of "Bigfoot."
October 22, 2009 (Newswire.com) - Seattle, WA (October 21, 2009) - The entire family will fall in love with "Bigfoot," an adventure filled story about friendship and believing in yourself. When teenager Percy Caldwell is abandoned in the wilderness by high school bullies, he never expects to meet an eight foot tall Sasquatch. Displaced by a recent forest fire, Bigfoot responds to Percy's overture of friendship when given a Simbree Energy Bar from his backpack. But when Percy's enemies discover Bigfoot's existence, it is up to Percy and his friends to protect the endangered Bigfoot - no matter what.
When Sally Virgin, owner and president of Simbree Energy Foods, received an email over a year ago from Joey James of Joey James Productions she never expected that her organic energy bars would end up in a family feature film - and the favorite snack of the Pacific Northwest's favorite mythological creature. "Apparently one of the producers is a big fan of Simbree products and thought it would be a funny recurrent theme in the movie to have Bigfoot become obsessed with the energy food," said Ms. Virgin. Amazon.com, who carries both the "Bigfoot" DVD and Simbree products is highlighting the connection with an exclusive film clip on their site that shows Bigfoot's delight in encountering Simbree bars.
Now that Hollywood has discovered Simbree, they can't seem to get enough. Major motion picture "The Details" was filming in Ms. Virgin's neighborhood last month and she presented the cast with Simbree Energy Food gift baskets. They were such a hit with Vegan star Toby Maguire he bet his assistant she wouldn't be able to stop eating them. Rumor has it she lost that bet and a shaved head is in her future. The Energy Bites were also popular at the snack table provided by the on-set caterers and they put in orders to have them available on other locations.
Just when Ms. Virgin thought things had died down, a couple of weeks ago she got a call from a local independent movie production company that wanted to place Simbree in their film. Soon the actors in "Worst Night Ever" will be saying "Best Energy Bites Ever"!
