You may have seen the custom ping pong paddles we created for the world Ping Pong Summer premiere at the Sundance Festival. We also attended a screening of the movie in Austin as part of SXSW and hung out with director Michael Tully and crew members to discuss where the passion for ping pong had come from. Well now, we have taken our relationship to the next level (are those wedding bells we hear in the distance?!) and can announce an exclusive partnership with Ping Pong Summer.
Celebrate Ping Pong Summer Like It’s 1985
To celebrate the theatrical and VOD launch of the movie on June 6th, you can now create your own custom Ping Pong Summer ping pong paddle by Uberpong on pingpongsummer.com. On one side of the paddle, you will get the 80s inspired movie poster graphic. On the other, you can upload your Instagram or Facebook photos so you can play ping pong with style!
The movie is set in 1985 and stars Rad Miracle (Marcello Conte), a shy 13-year-old white kid who’s obsessed with two things: ping pong and hip hop. In this coming of age drama, Rad goes on a summer vacation with his family to Ocean City, Maryland. He makes a new best friend, experiences his first crush, gets bullied and finds an unexpected ping pong mentor in his reclusive next-door neighbor (played by Susan Sarandon). Judah Friedlander also appears in a cameo role.
Here’s what the website looks like:
