TAG TEAM

The Martin Agency, Adweek's 2020 US Agency of the Year, and Tag Team, creators of the '90s multi-platinum smash Whoomp! (There It Is), joined forces for another ultra-memorable GEICO™ commercial. This is the second time GEICO™ and Tag Team have worked together.

After the success of 2015's "BBQ Awards" television commercial for the GEICO™ app, which featured the hit song Whoomp! (There It Is), The Martin Agency enlisted the '90s hip-hop duo Tag Team, DC (The Brain Supreme) Glenn and Steve (Rolln) Gibson, to bring their trademark party vibe and off-the-charts energy to the newest multimedia advertisement for the insurance company. The commercial went live on Dec. 26, 2020, and has already become a favorite in the advertising world; it was named the Reel Ad of the Week by Reel360 after a few days on the air.

The project is a powerful collaboration between cultural icons. In the advertising world, GEICO™ commercials are known for their award-winning creativity and flair. And in the music industry, few songs can boast the staying power of Tag Team's iconic hip-hop anthem.

Remarkably, the '90s hit Whoomp! (There It Is) has been doing this for 28 years. The song has universal appeal, but the true allure behind the music isn't the catchy lyrics or the thumping beat. It's the artists behind it. DC Glenn and Steve Gibson have brought an irresistible energy to every half-time show, music festival, and corporate event they've performed the song at for nearly three decades.

In 2021, they're bringing that same upbeat vibe and value proposition to the world of advertising. The new commercial for GEICO™, called "Tag Team Helps with Dessert," has brought pure fun back to living rooms across America. There's the high-energy Tag Team performance, ice cream, of course sprinkles, and stellar acting by the talented Nicci Carr (Tasha), Amethyst Davis (Daughter), and Anthony Goolsby (Husband/Father).

In promoting GEICO™, The Martin Agency used a recipe for epic commercial viewing and created an ad that is already garnering attention for its endearing quality. This winning meeting of the minds didn't come out of thin air, however.

DC has been training vigorously for years, seeking mastery in the arts of voiceover, acting, and improv. His magnetic presence and rich, textured voice have been nurtured by VO coaches Rudy Gaskins and Joan Baker (S.O.V.A.S.), as well as Denise Woods (author of The Power of Voice), dialect coach to the stars. DC is a natural in front of the camera, sharpening his craft with L.A. acting coach Crystal Carson (Auditioning by Heart), ATL acting coach Natalia Livingston (Actor Boutique), and improv veteran Ray Bengston. All this cultivation was brought to bear in preparation for this memorable light-hearted GEICO™ commercial. A born entertainer, DC Glenn is a highly sought-after working actor and voiceover talent represented by the People Store agency in Atlanta, Georgia.

From a fun-filled performance in this memorable GEICO™ commercial to acting in film and television, as well as booking commercial voiceover, animation, video game, promo, and movie trailer VO, the future is bright for DC The Brain Supreme, along with his Tag Team partner Steve Rolln diligently exploring new opportunities in the music industry. America now has two of its favorite Party People!!! back again.

LOS ANGELES - March 14, 2019 - (Newswire.com)

Longtime Prince hairstylist and first-time author Kim Berry will release her new book "Diamonds and Curlz - 29 Years Rolling With Rock Royalty Prince" Tuesday, April 16, 2019. The memoir will be available on Kindle and in paperback on Amazon.com.

The elite L.A. based celebrity hairstylist is excited to add "Author" to her long list of accomplishments. Taking a page from Prince's playbook, the new memoir was conceptualized, written, and self-published by Berry's KimBOnSet Publishing. Through fabulously told personal accounts of tour life experiences and other shared moments with Prince, Berry brings this labor of love to the masses. A captivating, heartfelt recollection of her journey alongside one of music's most prolific artists. Berry's desire for the book is to serve as a healing agent for peace to all who have never truly received closure after his death, nearly three years later.

"I want them to know he was a human being … special yes … but perfectly imperfect just like the rest of us. He made mistakes but incredible strides at the same time. Prince laughed, cried, and brought beautiful music to the world. I want fans to feel proud that we lived during an era of GREAT music. 'Prince was the soundtrack of our lives.' We know what to expect from the realm of music because the bar was so high. Live and live now, on or off stage. You only get one shot at this thing called life. Your greatest disadvantage is to miss your mark," says Berry.

Kim was the non-musical entity in his life. Uniquely blessed, she occupied the space between his life and art. Her story takes readers behind the purple curtain to give them a glimpse of the MAN, not the rock star. She respectfully reflects on Prince - the brother, friend, husband, and father; the human side of Prince Rogers Nelson few were privy to experience.

As Prince's personal hairstylist for almost three decades, Berry traveled extensively and primped him for stages all over the world. She also collaborated on what would become iconic looks for countless appearances and photo and video shoots. According to celebrity makeup artist Yolande' Denise, "Prince has always been the artist of our time who best reflects life and creativity. My girl Kim B. (as she is known in the industry) was a part of this magical crown … Kim has been a trendsetter for so many years and we always looked forward to what Prince was going to do next."

Kim's book will be debuted in Minneapolis April 24-28, during the Celebration of Prince 2019. Book signings and other events are posted in the news and events section of her website.

Preorders for "Diamonds and Curlz - 29 Years Rolling With Rock Royalty Prince" are underway now on diamondsncurlz.com.
