What a terrific request I received from Touchpoint Films producer Kevin Saffer, asking me and swellest side kick Billie to dress up some fine folk for the 50th year Birthday of Tim Horton's. On a Throwback Thursday, Yonge and Dundas Square was transformed into a Tim Horton's coffee shop and street scene from 1964 including vintage cars, records, and a DJ spinning sweet sixties sounds.
Using costumes from our personal collections as well as from Berman and Co and the Ian Drummond Collection, Billie and I styled up 20 characters to populate the street scene and invite passerbys to join the free coffee and donut lines. Even with the rain it was a terrific time and such a pleasure to work with the OgilvyOne Agency and all the talent.
And to join into the fun we ordered these hot pink bowling shirts for the costume department to wear.
Not since the Sonny Liston bio pic Phantom Punch, have we been able to revisit this period of early 60's style.
Here's the research page created for this project and here's the video made celebrating their 50th anniversary and of this day.

Just love dressing up, dressing other people up and talking about it. A lot. And laughing too.
