The Waverley Brewhouse is a pub and nanobrewery that does things a little differently. They brew their own small batch beers seasonally and are constantly updating their menu with fascinating items. The Waverley Brewhouse has a great sense of humour too so when this project came up we had to be a part of it.
Along with our friends Peach & Pineapple we worked through a concept to create our very own version of Hot Ones – a super spicy hot wings eating challenge combined with an interview. If you haven’t seen the original Hot Ones from Los Angeles then click right HERE cos it’s awesome.
We re-tooled the look of it to suit the Waverley Brewhouse and then locked in our first contender/interviewee…
Danny Green, legendary Aussie boxer and certified hero (he actually saved someone from drowning) agreed to be our first guinea pig. He came down to the set we created at the Waverley Brewhouse and made his way through the ever increasingly hot wings with our show’s host Hans (who is also a Director at Birdhouse).
Turns out Danny isn’t a fan of spicy food so his reactions are priceless! Plenty of napkins were harmed in the making of this video.
The main aim of this video was to drive interest around the Waverley’s Hot Ones wing challenge and it certainly did. Not only did it generate considerable interest on the day we were filming but the pickup online once the videos were posted brought plenty of people down to the venue to try their hand at the challenge.
It’s fun, it’s irreverent, and it has a little bit of Danny Green magic. What’s not to love? We really enjoy creative projects like this, especially when they’re goofy. Like THIS ONE we produced for Hit 92.9’s Ryan Jon!
