The winter storm wasn’t the only ominous front approaching Nashville’s iHeart Media offices last Wednesday morning, Arista Nashville’s duo The Swon Brothers also had a forecast up their sleeves!
The ACM nominated duo appeared on The Bobby Bones Show the day before and during the on-air conversation the noted host observed and commented that the guys were “too vanilla” and needed some controversy to set them apart. Well, that set the course for a winter storm of another sort as the duo sprang into action enlisting the help of “accessories to the fact,” including their management team, the fine folks at Purity Dairy and even some of iHeart’s employees who wanted to get in on the action.
The Swon Brothers decided to play a little prank on Bobby and cover his car in tons of Purity Homemade Vanilla ice cream. The caper began at 7:30 Wednesday morning as they frantically built scaffolding to hold the hundreds of gallons of ice cream. When Bobby finished his show and made his way to the parking garage, escorted by his sidekick Amy who was in on the prank, he saw a huge structure made of ice cream where his car was supposed to be. Zach and Colton Swon popped out from behind the ice cream and shouted to him “Hey, remember when you told us we were vanilla, well we found out that vanilla happens to be America’s favorite flavor, so we just wanted to share some with you!”
Bobby responded, “Yeah… this is good! You got me… you got me.” So, the storm front blew through with no one worse for the wear and The Swon Brothers, along with Purity Dairy, donated all of the Purity Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream to Nashville’s Second Harvest Food Bank in recognition of The Bobby Bones Show “Pimpin Joy” week.
