What’s an October weekend without a human being soaring through the evening skies in front of thousands? To ring in their new Cannon Blast beverage, the folks at Captain Morgan will be hosting an event in the Sunshine State, complete with Brian Miser, the human cannonball, and WFNY will be there to take it all in.
From October 16-18, Orlando, Florida will play host as the first ever Captain Morgan’s “Cannon Blast Bar Crawl,” a weekend-long event geared to promote their new innovative, cannonball-shaped shot, Captain Morgan Cannon Blast. In doing so, they’ve linked up with Miser, also know as “The Human Fuse,” who will launch himself through the air as a part of the celebration. Miser’s carcass will set sail at approximately 6 p.m., soaring from bar to bar thanks to multiple cannons set up in Orlando’s Wall Street Plaza.
Those who can’t be there in person for Shot O’Clock will want to follow along on Twitter, Instagram and WFNY’s Facebook page. Funny Or Die will be on the scene streaming multiple LIVE Periscope broadcasts, adding to the social media experience. You’ll also want to keep an eye out for Captain Morgan’s event-based hashtags #CannonBlastCrawl and #HashtagBoom, as I’ll only be one of many who will be chronicling the weekend’s explosive festivities. Cheers!
