Big Kahuna Mirrors Excitement for The NGV Gala Night

The National Gallery of Victoria’s (NGV) Annual Gala Night is a standout event in Australia’s social calendar.

When major sponsor, American Express, had a vision to make it bigger and better than ever, we were approached and asked to create an unforgettable immersive experience – and create, we did!

The star-studded guest list, which included Natalie Portman, Poppy Delevingne and Adam Goodes, entered the hall and discovered our American Express Platinum Mirror Walk (shown above), which quickly became the attraction of the evening.

As the sharply dressed attendees lined up to strut their stuff, they were treated to their own glamorous Cinderella moment as the 20-piece mirror set followed them down the catwalk, with camera flashes, smoke and music swirling all around.

It was quite a thrilling experience. It’s no wonder why over 250 people made their way to the stage to have their own piece of the action.

Our Big Kahuna Imagineering (BKI) team has seen a lot of crazy requests and built some amazing projects for our clients, but this was certainly a sticky one!

Selleys challenged Gus “Gussy” Worland from the Triple M Grill Team to sit on a chair stuck to a wall 4 metres in the air, using only Selleys Liquid Nails Instant Hold Glue – all while loyal listeners threw powder-filled projectiles at a target on his chest for a chance to win $5K!

Gussy was up for the promotional stunt, but how were we going to do it?
