Tropicana Raises a Glass to the Winter Manhattanhenge with Two-Story Pop-Up

Posted on:
Tropicana Shipping Container

Tropicana kicked off their “Sip Your Sunshine” campaign on January 22nd with an epic film shoot of the Manhattanhenge sunrise. The 41st Street location was carefully selected after consultation and collaboration with local expert Astronomers. 

The media outpost provided for an elevated shooting platform for broadcast and cable media, select bloggers, and influencers, to step inside a heated, 2-story custom BoxPop™ pop-up container; sip on some Tropicana Orange Juice, take photos and capture the sunrise over 41st Street, from high above 5th Avenue.

Manhattanhenge occurs when the sun rises or sets in complete alignment with the New York City street grid. Although it only takes place a few times a year, it has become a popular photography moment for both the accredited media and amateur photogs, alike. The film shoot captured the Manhattan sun emerging perfectly out of a container of orange juice, which Tropicana will use in their upcoming “Sip Your Sunshine” campaign.

The container consisted of two exciting media moments, including a large photo-op backdrop made completely out of oranges, and a plant wall which outlined a back-lit Tropicana logo.

The film shoot kicked off with a surprise appearance by “The Office” and “The Incredible Kimmy Schmidt” star, Ellie Kemper, who recently partnered with Tropicana on the Sip Your Sunshine campaign. Known for her bubbly personality, Kemper led the crowd in raising her glass of orange juice as the sunrise began.

If you missed Manhattanhenge this time around- don’t worry! The next Manhattanhenge is expected to happen on May 30th.

During this embargo period, all roadway, sidewalk, and DOT Plaza activities will be restricted, and no permits will be issued or honored by The City of New York, in the confines of the multiple and various embargoed areas.

In certain situations, it may be possible to be granted a “Special Use Waiver.”  Requests for such waivers should only be requested and submitted for “critical reasons” for a specific project. There is a mandatory Waiver Review Filing Fee, which is required to be paid prior to a waiver being granted, or reviewed.

Prior to this embargo period, all necessary measures must be taken so that all roadways and sidewalks are in proper condition to allow for the expeditious and safe movement of vehicular, bicycle and pedestrian traffic.

Please note that this embargo applies to NYC DOT and NYC special event permits.

If you or your client are looking for large footprint, with a high visibility location where your experiential marketing event will not be affected by the holiday permit embargo, (including in the Times Square area), you’ve come to the right place.  But, space, dates and locations are severely limited.
