Al Franken Bobblehead
Al Franken is currently the Junior State Senator from Minnesota. Back in the 1970s and 1980s he became well-known as a writer and performer on Saturday Night Live. Back in Back in 2005, AM 940 WINZ, home of South Florida’s Progressive Talk Radio commissioned the Bobble Factory to create 500 custom Al Franken Bobbleheads sitting at a desk.
Throughout the year, the radio station would run contests and offer subscriptions to those who wanted the bobblehead of their beloved Al. The super quality and unbelievable likeness allowed this promotion to go off without a hitch and become a collector item. 500 pieces were shipped and gone shortly after.
With years of expertise in collector quality bobbles, this “newscaster” pose was a breeze. The radio station provided some simple art of the future senator sitting at a desk with a microphone a few papers and the Radio Station’s Call Sign emblazoned on the front of the desk for maximum exposure and promotion.
