ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Aug. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- This summer, Good Humor® is embarking on a mission to bring joy to the mundane moments of everyday life, and transform East Coast cities into capitals of joy, one neighborhood at a time. After stopping off on its "Welcome to Joyhood" summer campaign in New York City and Philadelphia, the iconic brand is continuing its tour and traveling to Moynihan Place at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, D.C. (Pennsylvania Ave. and 13th St. NW), for a fun-filled event for those who live, work and play in the city. Harry Burt, founder of Good Humor®, made a personal trip to Washington, D.C., with a five-gallon pail of Good Humor bars before being granted exclusive rights to "ice cream on a stick," and we're back to celebrate!
The Good Humor® Joy Squad will serve up free Good Humor® frozen treats and other fun surprises (while supplies last) at Moynihan Place at the Ronald Reagan Building at 1300 Pennsylvania Avenue NW on Tuesday, August 4, from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. The Joy Squad is led by the Good Humor® Man himself, and consists of a newly modernized Good Humor® Truck and a squad of unique Good Humor® Cars.
The newly modernized Good Humor® Truck is revolutionizing the traditional ice cream truck. The classic brand icon now comes equipped with contemporary features such as digital TV screens and social media capabilities, helping consumers connect with their friends and welcome them to "Joyhood."
"Good Humor has been bringing joy to fans for more than 90 years, and this summer we're setting out to turn major East Coast cities into 'Joyhood,'" said Nick Soukas, director of ice cream at Unilever. "With the help of the Good Humor Joy Squad and the iconic Good Humor Truck, we're celebrating summer, and bringing joy in the form of our frozen treats to the streets of Washington, D.C."
Fueled by consumer conversations, Good Humor® will engage with fans on Twitter, and send the Good Humor® Joy Squad through their neighborhoods in Washington, D.C. from August 4 to August 22, surprising and delighting them with frozen treats and other unexpected delights. The Joy Squad will show up in neighborhoods and at events, local retailers and local businesses – as well as some unexpected places – to bring joy to everyday life.
Good Humor® fans can follow the Good Humor® Joy Squad all summer on Twitter @GoodHumor.
