KING KONG COMES TO MELBOURNE

june 2013

To celebrate the June arrival of the larger-than-life new musical KING KONG, AKA Australia coordinated a spectacular event on the Eureka Skydeck, the tallest building in the Southern Hemisphere!

On Tuesday, May 21st, a 4.5 meter hand (a purpose built replica of the show’s monstrous main character) was attached to the Eureka Skydeck and suspended 300 meters high above Melbourne—complete with KING KONG’s legendary damsel in distress, Ann Darrow (as played by stunt woman Leigh-Anne Vizer)!

Not only will Kong’s hand appear on level 88 of the Skydeck for the run of the show, but AKA also negotiated a tremendous partnership with the Eureka Skydeck that will deliver thousands of dollars of added value to KING KONG’s campaign.

Coverage of the stunt was picked up worldwide across publications including The Guardian, The BBC, The Huffington Post as well as every major news outlet in Australia. CLICK HERE to get a behind-the-scenes look at this king-sized event!
