Rhythmic Gymnastics Equipment Sold for Use in SuperBowl Pepsi Commercial - A SportSoleil First

  (February 09, 2012)

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 09, 2012

Two months ago, employees at SportSoleil were surprised to get a rush order for Rhythmic Gymnastics Ribbons and Ribbon Sticks from a studio in Los Angeles known for producing television commercials for top brands.

The customer called us and explained that they needed several ribbons and ribbon sticks the next day, because they were filming the Pepsi Superbowl commercial and wanted to include rhythmic gymnastic equipment in the commercial!, said Superstar Head of Customer Service, Michelle.

We had all the items in stock they needed white, red and blue ribbons and white ribbon sticks. We packaged everything up as quickly as possible and shipped it out overnight to California. The customer received it the next day and was thrilled with the high quality rhythmic gymnastic equipment.

The team of employees at SportSoleil, (an official distributor of Sasaki, Pastorelli, Chacott, Bleyer, Sogo, ZenRG and others) waited anxiously for SuperBowl Sunday to arrive.

As the day drew nearer we became more excited! We have had orders from rhythmic gymnastic world champions and even from Cirque du Soleils Las Vegas show in the past (which sometimes features rhythmic gymnasts, ribbons and hoops), but having our rhythmic equipment in a SuperBowl commercial is big and definitely a first for our company!, exclaims Michelle.

The Pepsi ad featured Melanie Amaro (winner of The X Factor (US), first season), and Sir Elton John. John plays a King holding a talent contest. Amaro wins the contest by singing Aretha Franklins song, Respect. Unfortunately, while court jesters hold rhythmic hoops and perform some gymnastic moves in the commercial, footage featuring SportSoleil's Rhythmic Gymnastic Equipment didnt make the final cut.

We were disappointed, but it was exciting to have the anticipation of it anyways!, exclaimed a very positive Michelle.

Elton John was wearing a crown and 3-inch gold heels and everyone knows how difficult it is to perform rhythmic gymnastics in heels! It was too bad that the studio didnt order some rhythmic half shoes from us for Sir Elton to wear he may have had a chance then! We also sell beautiful Swarovski Crystal Hair Nets for buns, and we think that's more practical than a crown, but still glamorous, states Michelle.

You can see the extended version of the commercial on uTube (at and you can find SportSoleil's extensive line of multi-color rhythmic gymnastic ribbons, ropes, hoops, clubs and accessories at

Its all the best FIG-certified equipment, and definitely fit for a King. Or Queen!, exclaims Michelle.
