Wetter is Better

We’re at that stage where we’re brainstorming and organising our first campaign. Our train of thought went a little something like this: Stick ’em up. Guns. Super Soakers. The nostalgic memories that come along with what may seem to be a mere water pistol is everything and more to put the biggest smile on my face.

I remember the day my brothers and I got our first Power Drencher 90 – in the 90’s. The joy of thinking I could do harm to one of them with these bad boys was satisfying enough to have me on it for hours.

I wasn’t alone. After searching Ebay and finding a Super Soaker 50 10th anniversary limited edition going for $599 I realised a lot of people share a nostalgic memory linked to the pistol and it had officially become a collector’s item. I searched all kinds, the 50, 100, 3000…This could be the start of a new obsession or an addition to my shrine of long lost toys, consoles, vhs tapes etc.

In an hour I learnt the history of the Super Soaker and their slogans are now imprinted in my head “Wetter is better!” and “It’s Nerf or nothing”. I’m off to bid.
