For our sins, Salt Lake City will host-life size replicas of characters from Disney/Pixar's Cars 2 in advance of the DVD release. ---
As part of a coast-to-coast tour, State Farm is sponsoring the "Agents on a Mission" tour, which brings full-scale, radio-controlled replicas of Cars 2 characters Lightning McQueen, Mater and Finn McMissile to multiple cities. Promotional materials describe them as the "largest production radio-controlled replicas ever built," so there's that.
The fun takes place next Tuesday and Wednesday (Oct. 18-19), 12 - 6 p.m. at the EnergySolutions Arena Plaza in downtown Salt Lake City. In addition to the Cars cars, the occasion will also feature photo ops, games and giveaways and a video kiosk. The sequel's half a billion dollars (so far) in worldwide box office--and the marketing bonanza that was the original Cars--will be supplemented on Nov. 1 with the release of Cars 2 on DVD and Blu-ray.
