It’s the Godzirra Roll (Yes Godzirra – two rr’s) from small chain of restaurants called Sticky Rice in the DC-aea. They just firmly affixed said sushi to a plate, attached a camera, added a sound track, and voila – you have sushi in space. In collaboration with RVA TV and Bark Marketing, Sticky Rice launched a sushi plate of their popular Godzirra roll on January 1st of this year. Six months of planning and testing because they weren’t just battling making good sticky rice – oh no….-60F in space, FAA regulations, overheating or freezing batteries, GPS issues, stabilization, and how to make the damn sushi stay together in high winds all played into the 6 months of planning. That’s a fairly lofty plate of sushi.
“Our team is hoping for national attention and plan to make a shorter commercial for local air play. We loved the Toshiba ‘Chair in Space’ commercial and it was the basis of this project wondering if it could happen on a shoe-string budget for a small business.”
Indeed. Whatever the case. It’s damn epic.
