TAXI chases cheese for Dairy Farmers of Canada

TAXI chases cheese for Dairy Farmers of Canada thumbnail

You know those sports skills we talked about in the last Inbox post? Well it looks like the residents of British Columbia can put those skills to work a few weeks from now by chasing cheese down a mountain.

This August marks the 2nd Annual Canadian Cheese Rolling Festival, a raucous event being held in Whistler, the world famous ski resort town north of Vancouver. The event was created by TAXI Vancouver for Dairy Farmers of Canada, and the centrepiece of the festival is a mad dash down the side of Whistler Mountain while chasing an 11-pound wheel of cheese.

The festival is based off of a similar event that has been taking place in Gloucester, England for the past two centuries. 

TAXI has whipped up a cinema spot that’s making the rounds in Vancouver theatres, plus some print executions and a mirror decal.

I love cheese as much as the next guy, but I don’t think I’m willing to break my neck for it.
