I could be cute like that fat girl from that Blind Melon video!
Buzzbee The Mascot
Entercom Communications Corp – Philadelphia, PA
Buzzbee is B101.1’s official mascot. Buzzbee is an integral part of the station’s brand, and a crucial asset to have on site at promotional events. Buzzbee’s personality is playful, lighthearted, and sweet. The performer of Buzzbee is expected to portray those qualities perfectly during the times where they are performing.
Buzzbee plays an integral role as an entertainer at station events and appearances. The mascot will meet and greet station listeners and work closely with the B101.1 Street Team at events to enhance the event experience.
Mascot Performer Responsibilities:
Interact with people in crowds with little to no direction. This includes high-fives, hugging children (and adults!), posing for pictures, etc. Although Buzzbee will have a handler who will speak for Buzzbee (as he cannot talk), the handler is not responsible for directing every last move of Buzzbee.
Understand that Buzzbee is not just a mascot suit, but is a mobile marketing asset. Buzzbee is another way to get the name of B101.1 out to listeners in the same vein as a tent, table, or branded tailgate game.
Insert themselves into the action at events, when allowed. This includes coming onto the stage at concerts, ice skating, rollerblading, playing musical instruments, check presenting, and more.
Know the limits of performing. In addition to not pushing oneself to the brink of passing out during the summer heat, being in the suit is not a free pass for debauchery or illegal acts. This includes playfully “stealing” cell phones or food, trespassing, taunting, among others.
Suzi’s Cover Letter:
I’m already an actress (phone), so this is right up my alley. Plus, I love honey bees, and the colors yellow and black. I love people, and fun events, and I am a complete pro!
One time, a client wanted me to dress up like a cowgirl and he dressed up like a horse. He was very happy.
Sweet As Honey (Bees),
I'm just your average girl who wants a kick-ass life and... love! If I could be a superhero, that would be AWESOME! I'm currently a "phone actress" looking for a really cool career. Don't get me wrong-- I love giving a hand to dudes who need someone to chat with. Everybody needs somebody! But, my parents keep telling me I need a respectable job. Sigh.
