Simon & Pep


Simon Dumont and Pep Fujas blessed us with their presence late last week for two very cool upcoming print ad campaign photo shoots. I cannot disclose too much at this time, but I can say that the behind the scenes photo shoot will be showcased exclusive here at in a few months. The basic premise behind the two shoots was having Pep in a huge riot scene and Simon taking on some Mexican wrestlers.

Both shoots were a lot of fun and the guys were really good sports about doing a four plus hour photo shoot. After the photo shoot we headed back to Oakley headquarters, where Simon and Pep checked out the Fall ’08 technical outerwear line. The new line is shaping up nicely and the boys had some great feedback for our designers.

The day’s activities ended with a MySpace Interview Contest… you maybe asking what the heck is that. Well, Oakley has a MySpace page dedicated to our fans and we posted a bulletin asking the viewers out there for questions they would like Pep and Simon to answer. The response was overwhelming and in the end Jenny Faye took home the winning questions for Simon and Pep. In exchange for being awarded the best questions by Simon and Pep, she won the Oakley / Target Gloves signed by Simon and Fall ’07 Crowbar Goggle signed by Pep.

Big thanks to boys for flying out this way to do the shoots, the photo crew for the ad shoot, the Mexican wrestlers for supplying the perfect arena for the photo shoot and of course Greg Strokes for being the mastermind behind Oakley Ski!!
