All you have to do is show up at the guitar, bass and accessories retailer’s Sarasota store at 2 p.m., April 1, wearing a Sarasota Guitar Company t-shirt.
Sarasota Guitar Company owner Scott Cook wants you to be in a video he is filming at his Sarasota location, 4333 S. Tamiami Trail, Sarasota, on Sunday, April 1, 2012, at 2 p.m. And he is betting that a chance to win a $1,000 Sarasota Guitar Company store gift card immediately after the shoot will help rustle up a crowd of would-be video stars.
“The only requirement for participating in the video, which makes you eligible to win the $1,000 gift card, is that you wear a Sarasota Guitar Company t-shirt,” Cook explains. “Our vision is to have hundreds of people lined up in the parking lot in front of our store yelling in unison, ‘I love Sarasota Guitar Company!’”
To help promote the event and the four-figure giveaway, Cook elicited the services of Lazy Fairy Improv. The Sarasota-based group shot a promotional video at Sarasota Guitar Company’s Sarasotastore in February, and that video has already received more than 20,000 hits.
“We think the ‘I love Sarasota Guitar Company’ video has the potential to go viral, especially since the Lazy Fairy Improv actors are going to be on hand to help get the crowd revved up,” Cook says. “Just look at how well the promo video has done.”
Sarasota Guitar Company t-shirts are available for purchase at the store’s Bradenton location, 2111 Cortez Road W., and at theSarasota store. The retailer also periodically announces opportunities to win free t-shirts or purchase shirts at discounts on its Facebook page (www.facebook.com/SarasotaGuitarCompany) through Twitter (www.twitter.com/sarasotaguitar) and through its email newsletter at www.sarasotaguitarcompany.com.
To view the video starring Lazy Fairy Improv members Christine Alexander, Joey Panek, Catey Brannan, Darryl Knapp and Angel M. Parker, visit http://youtu.be/FNBJJ9tUIzE. The official $1,000 Gift Card Giveaway Rules can be found on the store’s website.

About Lazy Fairy Improv
Lazy Fairy Improv is an ever-evolving, innovative, Sarasota-based improv troupe dedicated to entertaining, training and teaching others in the purest form of theater: improvisation. The Sarasota-based troupe was birthed in 2008 and was originally supposed to be called "laissez faire," but none of the cast members knew how to spell it. They perform a two-act, completely improvised show made up of short- and long-form improv scenes. Their goal is to make you forget your worries while you enjoy a good hard belly laugh. Comprised of seasoned actors, and a piano accompanist with over 50 years of improv performance between them, Lazy Fairy Improv is dedicated to providing engaging, experimental, and entertaining comedy.
