Red Bull in Washington D.C.

June 16, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Washington D.C. - On Father's Day, my family and I headed towards a spectacular Brazilian steak house for lunch, only to find that many of the roads leading to the restaurant were closed and blocked by police units.  The downtown streets were eerily quiet and people were being detoured left and right.  D.C. looked like a pending riot was about to break out.  None-the-less, we parked a few blocks down, walked the extra distance, and enjoyed lunch while fire trucks, ambulances, and police motorcycles littered the streets with engine noise and lights.  As we stepped out after enjoying a delicious creamy cheesecake topped with fresh, chilled strawberries, curiosity got the best of me and I had to find out what the silence was about.

It was not a war zone.

It was a promotional video shoot for Red Bull.

The city shut down Pennsylvania Avenue to film a Red Bull-sponsored vehicle burn rubber down the iconic road.  Luckily, I had my camera in case we would take some lovely Father's Day photos.  Instead, my camera was used to capture a split second of what will soon be turned into the next Red Bull commercial.  

Unfortunately, (to my disappointment) there were no bombs, no fire, no crashes, no ramps to jump.  One lone car followed by a convoy of unmarked emergency vehicles.

I'm sure the after-effects will be amazing though!
