We packed up two giant food trucks, wrapped them in amazing Homeland and DEXTER® artwork, outfitted them with a SHO-Cone machine and all kinds of premium giveaways, and made our way across the US to some of the best college towns in the country.
From driving in to College Station following the sounds of the midnight yell to handing out ponchos to rain soaked co-eds at Michigan State; celebrating the news of Homeland’s 6 Emmy wins on the sidewalks of New York to epic corn-hole battles in the shadow of Soldier Field in Chicago – we had an amazing run!
Many thanks to every single one of you for sharing in this incredible event, the first ever SHOWTIME® Tailgate Tour, with us! Getting to be a part of your creative photo opportunity poses, your super spirited face painting requests, and the overall enthusiasm for SHOWTIME® and our original series Homeland and DEXTER® was amazing.
So, whether you’re a Spartan or a Longhorn; a Fighting Irish or a UIC Flame or any other of the amazing students we got to meet and hangout with, keep watching SHOWTIME® and thank you again for this one of a kind experience.
If you have any photos or thoughts you would like to share about the campaign post them on Instagram or Twitter and hashtag #showtimetour
Notre Dame – we came to Chicago, ate some deep dish pizza and Chicago style Char-dogs, and then made our way to Soldier Field for your game versus Miami. The frigid temperatures didn’t stop you from coming out in droves and even getting amped over the SHO-Cones. That tough Midwestern constitution is nothing to joke about!
Our face painter was a hit and came up with some really fantastic thematic Notre Dame designs. Thanks for stopping by and telling us about how much you like DEXTER® and Homeland and watching the pre-game fireworks with us! We can’t wait to see your photos from the event, so upload them to Instagram or Twitter and hashtag #showtimetour.
Longhorns: You may take football seriously, but you sure know how to play a mean game of corn hole!
We were overwhelmed by the sheer number of you who came out and shared with us how much you like SHOWTIME®, Homeland, and DEXTER® as well as participated in all our great activities.
We had an amazing time tailgating with you and are definitely headed back east with a little bit of Texas pride.
We’re excited to see all of your great photos, so post them up on Instagram or Twitter and hashtag #showtimetour.
Michigan State, we saved you for last! The truck is heading to East Lansing for the Spartan’s big game against Iowa. We’re coming prepared with great giveaways, fun tailgating games, and the best face painting around to help you get in spirit for the game!
Come find our truck right outside of Spartan Stadium; click here for the exact location.
Don’t miss the very last stop on The SHOWTIME® Tailgate Tour! Stop by and help us celebrate an amazing journey across our nation recognizing collegiate spirit and the groundbreaking premieres of the SHOWTIME® Original Series: DEXTER® and Homeland.
We loved that Texas football pride so much that The SHOWTIME® Tailgate Tour decided to stay for one more weekend of it and head to the University of Texas at Austin!
Maybe we just wanted a chance to say “Hook ‘em Horns”, but mostly we wanted to help you through the last days of Texan summer with some refreshing SHO-Cones and to get you pumped up for the big game with some great DEXTER® and Homeland giveaways, face painting, and tailgating games.
Come find us near the Darrell K Royal Texas Memorial Stadium on the corner of San Jacinto Blvd and Trinity Street from 2:00 pm – 6:15 pm. And make sure to upload all of your great photos from our event to Instagram and Twitter and hashtag #showtimetour.
