A few days ago my daughter and I were invited to attend a very special event. Not only were we going to watch the Big Ticket Summer concert in Edmonton, yet we played a game of UNO with the headliner of the show, Cody Simpson!
“The partnership with Cody is a fantastic platform to bring people together through Uno and capture the essence of the game – it’s about fun and making memories. Cody also has a strong global presence and appeals to fans of all ages around the world, just like Uno.”
Simply put: It was awesome!
My daughter, her friend and the winners of the VIP experience giveaway I hosted, had one fabulous time. So many great memories were made!
Backstage before the show, we sat with Cody Simpson and played the most intense game of UNO ever. I opted to take photos and videos during the game and not play myself, so I was able to also
sneak peeks at the cards watch the play during the game.
Yes, there were many blushed faces in the room, my daughter and her friend were pretty much speechless. Actually, I think there may be some slobber on the cards themselves …
Anyway, there was a point in the game when I thought we’d win. My daughters friend had UNO and was waiting on baited breath and shaky hand to lay down that last card and declare victory.
Alas, the colour changed and the game took a surprising direction. In Cody’s favour. Yes, Cody won the game and jumped off the couch to cheer!
Guys, this man is talented.
Not only did he play UNO and win the game – but all the while he strummed cords on his guitar and hummed songs now and then. After all, the show was minutes away and this was his time to warm up.
Guitar, sing, Play UNO and win!?
Talk about a perfect pairing for the brand – he truly proved he could play #UNOanytime! Anytime, anywhere and while doing anything. Truly talented.
More about the concert and meeting some Family Channel celebs to come soon … until then, we cry into our UNO deck. Which, by the way, now has a card signed by Cody Simpson. Perhaps this is our new ‘Cody Wild Card’ – when played all other players have to get up, sing, and dance. No, we’ll up you one cody – all that plus drink from a cup! That’s it – I declare a re-match!
When is the last time you played the ever-popular and classic game, UNO?
