What does a CEO do?

What won't they do! That's right, a CEO has a lotta jobs, but occasionally it comes down to absolute lunacy. So last November Entrepreneur Magazine called and wanted to do a story on BIGGBY COFFEE ( I had already written a post on the photographer David Johnson back in November...funny video too :) )

When I met David he had this make BIGGBY BOB a cup of coffee, but not any Iced Mocha Mocha, he wanted to put whip cream on my head, the whole nine yards...I shoulda left right then and there, but he flew in all the way from New York so I went along. This is the video that shows how that photo was done...have fun!

The article and photo is now out in the February issue of Entrepreneur Magazine, make sure to check that out too!

Also, as you watch you can add comments right on the video, a new service from Viddler...pretty cool, give it a try...but be nice :)

How fun! I can honestly say that I do not think I've ever seen a human cup of coffee before. I bet that it was the first time you have been a cup of coffee? Looking forward to reading the article.

You are a good sport.

Bob - let's be truthful, that isn't the first time you have done that!

Though I have to say, Bob, you missed an opportunity here...

You totally could have held an auction to benefit the charity of your choice, where the high bidder gets to be the person with the whipped cream can!

Kari--that's gotta' be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity--I hope you savored it!

It was a chance of a lifetime. I have to say Biggby Bob was a great sport. It was truly a SUPER fun morning in the store.
