IN A bid to capture the attention of world wide superstar Katy Perry, the Whitsunday PCYC has created a video that’s ready to go viral.
The Whitsunday PCYC took on the project in hope that Katy Perry would perform a concert here in the sunny Whitsundays.
PCYC’s Wild Ones and derby team Airlie Beach Trash Bags star in the video that features the Katy Perry’s hit single Roar.
Everyone involved made grass skirts using bin bags, handmade feather hair pieces and tiger paws.
Wild Ones children are dressed in the safari/jungle theme just like Ms Perry’s video clip and Airlie Beach Trash Bags are seen chasing someone down in an animal print onesie.
Whitsunday PCYC projects and programs coordinator Grainne Newell said creating the video was about exposing the region and creating more experiences for youth.
“The Whitsundays would be a perfect place for a concert and it would allow young people and children of the large surrounding area to experience music shows, a little closer to home.
“Unfortunately Brisbane simply is out of reach financially for many families, with return travel, accommodation, food and ticket prices on top, it can be quite an expensive trip,” she said.
There are a lot of perks for Katy Perry if she visits the region; she can experience the best of Australia by snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef, holding a koala at Hammo or walking on one of the world’s most famous beaches, Whitehaven Beach.
The video is full of life and ready to capture the hearts of the rest of the world and Ms Perry.
The club’s first goal is to get 1000 views on the YouTube clip before approaching national television and radio stations.
Ms Newell said the video was also a chance for people in the PCYC community to work together on something innovative and fun.
“Collectively, Wild Ones and Airlie Beach Trash Bags derby team worked very well as a team with everyone making a huge effort to make the project happen.
“Without our volunteers we wouldn’t be able to make things like this a reality,” she said.
