Bonn · Before the season here kicks off on October 3, there was a bit of fun and filming in store for Bonn’s own basketball team. The Telekom Baskets Bonn, together with GA, produced a new season trailer to be premiered at the first home game.
There was admiration and respect in Josh Mayo's face. "That's a really big wheel," said the Bonn basketballer as he ran his hand over the steering wheel. For the filming of the new Telekom Baskets Bonn trailer, Mayo took to the wheel of the Bonn “Cabrio” convertible bus. Although the American already knows the bus from several sightseeing tours that GA does with the team before each season, it has never been his responsibility to control the monstrous vehicle.
But to avoid any massive protests and serious traffic violations, Josh Mayo only accepted the role of bus driver in a passive format. You ask - why does the nimble playmaker even need a bus? The answer is simple, he is not alone.
At the beginning of the film, the team captain asks his teammates on the phone to come to the basketball court. But when the team gets there, there’s no trace of their captain. Meanwhile, he has also left the Telekom Dome - bringing along the open air Bonn bus full of everything needed for a great game at the #HEARTberg (a play on the word Hardtberg where the games are played): the coaching and support team, fans big and small, the mascot Bonni, the Baskets dance team and fitting music provided by the Bonn Kölsch band Köbesse.
The atmosphere at the film shoot made a big impression on newcomer Ra'Shad James: "I thought it was outstanding. I liked how much the fans were along with us." At the end of the trailer, he and his teammates faced off in a training session.
The first home game of the Telekom Baskets Bonn will be played at the Telekom Dome in Hardtberg on October 3 against Braunschweig. At halftime, the new video trailer will be premiered. After that, one can view it at ga.dezu.
