Hey, not only will Pitt be on Gameday, the newest promotional gimmick will be on display. Oh, not thundersticks, or something loud and annoying things like that. They are a different kind of annoying. The “Rollabana.”

Pitt Roll-out Banner.
Basically, it is a handheld, roll-up banner. You grab each end, pull and then wave the banner with both hands. Release and it conveniently rolls back.

Judging by the Rollabana website, I’m guessing it has been in Europe for a while and just started hitting the US in ’06. Starting with some baseball teams. The US distributor of the product doesn’t have much of a site, but they do have a message.


Be sure to be “crazed.”

Complete with McDonald’s logo of course.

a company called maximpact is the only company allowed to make/sell/use as promotional items in the US……I thought they were really cool–but thought THE ZOO would have more of them!

They can also be hung in car/dorm windows…and used over and over again…for football/basketball….pretty cool!
