Flying high above Times Square in New York City, Project Bandaloop performed gravity-defying leaps on ropes from a 157-foot billboard to promote Disney's new "Expedition Everest" attraction. The troupe of acrobat/rock climber performance artists are huge fans of the Moonstone line and contacted the company to outfit them for the event. The 10 members were decked out from head-to-toe, wearing a variety of Moonstone products including the Momentum, Ridgeline, Gendarme and Photon jackets, Gendarme pant and Meridian zip T. Expedition Everest, set to open April 7 in Disney World's Animal Kingdom, features a train navigating an 80-foot drop, rumbling over bridges and through valleys backward and forward to escape the yeti monster, which has twisted and broken the tracks.
