Over the past two years, the Get Animated Invasion has crash-landed across the world to bring beloved childhood cartoon favorites from Warner Bros to life—and now they are taking over Brooklyn.
Warner Bros. unveiled the Tune Squad Court—a fresh court refurbishment and mural—at Rodney Park North in Williamsburg with a launch event on Thurs. Aug. 1, 2019, filled with local NYC creatives and influencers within sports, music, fashion and art to celebrate the fun-loving Looney Tunes characters who continue to tear up the basketball court generation after generation.
The event consisted of a basketball game led by team captains Elena Parasco for Team Bugs and Chris Brickley for Team Daffy, who played on behalf of Peace Players International and for Pro Scholars Athletics respectively to win a donation from Warner Bros. to their selected charity of choice. The game and half-time show was emceed by Team Cha Ching, a local streetball legend and Eric Bauza, the man and voice behind Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck. The halftime show was presented by The Lite featuring live performances by NYC Litefeet groups WAFFLE, Shake Nation and BAD.
Representatives and kids from the local chapters of Peace Players International and Pro Scholars Athletics was also on-site when Warner Bros. announced a surprise donation to both charities at the event.
Notable players and attendees included Brooklyn Nets rookies Nic Claxton and Jaylen Hands; NBA 2K Marketing Director, Ronnie Singh; DJ and recording artist, DJ Clue; House of Highlights founder, Omar Raja and more.
