(Big Horn, WY) – Inside a dimly lit gymnasium hundreds of parents, students and teachers are all seated and looking toward the stage in hushed anticipation. Thick velvety drapes obscure the magic that is about to take place. The magic so many in this community have pined for and are now waiting on the edge of their seats to behold.
Suddenly a jingle can be heard coming from the school’s PA. Quiet at first, the sound starts to level out and an upbeat tune commences to fill the massive room. The children’s excitement is palpable but they continue to remain silent, eyes forward, not wanting to miss a second of the show once it begins.
The theme song drops its tempo and the curtains slowly begin to open. Gasps can be heard from the audience as they bear witness to the 7 foot tall, cylindrical character standing center stage. He starts to sing in a comically high-pitched voice and that’s when absolute bedlam breaks out. Some children are jumping up and down, screaming wildly. Others clap their hands, smiling and singing along, already knowing the song that is now barely audible above the shrieks and squeals of several hundred overjoyed kids.
Enter Chippie The RFID – Your Child’s New Best Friend Who Lives Inside Of Their Body
This was the scene earlier today at Plymouth elementary school in Big Horn, Wyoming, the first stop on Chippie’s nationwide RFID awareness tour. Chippie The RFID Device is a corporate sponsored mascot for the newly mandated Obamacare RFID Implantation Program. His purpose is to introduce kids and teens to the RFID technology in a fun and nonthreatening way.
Chippie coolly answers kid’s questions and quells any concerns they may have in regards to the RFID implant. Kids say they enjoy Chippie’s upbeat attitude, and earnest nature. The mascot could very well achieve a level of fame with children on par with that of Barney the purple dinosaur or the Teletubbies.
The younger generation particularly seems to be infatuated with him on a level that surpasses even the expectations of the merchandising team responsible for distributing Chippie themed products throughout the campaign.
“He’s So Cool!” Said Brading Harris A Student At Plymouth Elementary School. “I Love Chippie So Much!”
“Chippie really resonates with young children to an alarming degree” commented Robert Howell, executive director of the marketing and merchandising team in charge of the Chippie merchandise line. “We have had a tough time keeping up with the demand for all the products we produce. When we arrived at the first school all of our stock was cleared out within 45 minutes.”
“He’s so cool!” said Brading Harris a student at Plymouth elementary school. “I love Chippie so much! He’s my best friend in the whole world and I can’t wait to get my very own real life Chippie implanted in my hand!”
Another girl we spoke with told us she wanted the pink RFID when it becomes available. She continued, “I love the part of the DVD where all the little Chippies found homes in the bodies of boys and girls and everyone lived happily ever after.”
Chippie’s nationwide tour will run for the length of November, starting in Wyoming and moving East down to the Florida pan handle. For more information on Chippie The RFID and his nationwide tour please click here.
