Mobilegs to appear on Fox's 'So You Think You Can Dance'.

Due to a Sunday morning tip from my Fox watching friend Johnathon--found out that gifted dancer, Alex Wong was injured on Saturday's performance. I was able to make contact with the new host of 'So You Think You Can Dance' contestant Alex Wong on his Facebook page--and a PR packet sent to Fox Monday morning. He sustained an injury Saturday that requires surgery on his achilles tendon. To my surprise, he quickly replied back--we were in touch via phone and e-mail within the hour. We will be overnight shipping Alex a set of Mobilegs within the next few hours. He will be donning a pair of Mobilegs as a member of the audience and as a potential guest host of the highly watch Fox show within the next few weeks. Great PR for Mobi as we launch our first product.

Bryan Levine | Mobilegs second end-user

During a few stolen minutes at Starbucks I spotted a young millenial crutch-user. While he waited for his latte. I asked him how long he had been on crutches, with a pained expression, he replied-'five long months'. Crutches user Bryan sustained a knee injury that required extensive surgery. During that time beyond the discomfort of the crutch use, he had to have the aluminum crutches replaced at lease three times--some due to foot replacement, some due to total structural failure. He and his companion sat down for a moment while I pulled up Mobilegs.com to show him our product. He was instantly enthralled and asked 'where can I get these!?'. I told him we were eagerly awaiting our first shipment. I know that this was a perfect opportunity to positively impact the last weeks of his experience, gain some exposure for Mobilegs and to have him blog about his experience.

He came by to pick up his set of Ultra Mobilegs this afternoon. Excitedly, he walked out into the street with a new attitude about the last month of his 'crutches story'. We know he will have a great experience. See pics of Bryan on Facebook. http://www.facebook.com/mobilegs?ref=ts
