Red Bull broke several world records and the sound barrier with their Stratos project as Felix Baumgartner fell from space. Lynx sent a regular bloke into space with their Apollo Space Academy and now Emerge have stepped up to stake a claim in space.
Since they don’t have the budgets of Lynx or Red Bull (given that they’re a 35p energy drink), they’re offering fans the chance to at least get their face in space– a kind of budget space expedition if you will. Hence in their latest video, you’ll see a man hitching a lift to space on a bunch of balloons, floating into the clouds. All of this to the smooth sounds of ‘The Joker’ by The Steve Miller Band.
So space cowboys, what are you waiting for – #YourFaceInSpace.
Simply visit their app http://apps.facebook.com/emergespace, upload a selfie and the winning face will be sent stratospheric for all their mates (and the world) to see. Let’s be realistic, it’s probably the closest you’ll ever get to becoming an astronaut!
