As you may have herd, we joked about rebranding to Taallama Totes.
Even if this was an April Fools day joke, it doesn't mean we can't introduce you to (what would have been) our new mascot, Tim the Taallama Llama!
Let me tell you a little bit about Tim…
Tim didn’t always dream of being a brand mascot. Growing up, he actually wanted to work at a smoothie bar. But when I offered him the mascot position, his tail gave a friendly wiggle and he said “hemmemmmm” (then he spat in my face, walked away, and started humming “I Want It That Way” by the Backstreet Boys.... so, I'll take that as a yes).
Here is what Tim wants you to know: He is hard-working, has high aspirations, and is a (self-proclaimed) GREAT dancer
Here is what Tim doesn't want you to know: He prefers to spend most of his time working on his tan... that means wearing floaties at the pool sipping llamanade.
I recently sat down to interview Tim for the mascot position, here were his answers:
- How would you describe yourself? "I'm a procrastinator, always have been, always will be."
- Why do you want to work here? "I'll answer that question with another question. What is gravity and how does it work?"
- How do you spend your free time? "Shuffling cards and playing FarmVille"
- Convince me to hire you. "Well, I once drove a Llamborghini but didn't go over the speed limit... I respect the open highway and stay out of trouble... you could say that I am a no probllama."
To say I was impressed would be an understatement.
With that amount of quirkiness and sassiness, it's safe to say that Tim will be the perfect fit for the job. And besides, he's got nice molars. Do I need any other reason to be confident he is the right choice?
