  1. OK that was cool, but the 'float' was a flatbed with some fabric on it. And there was that huge sign in front of the rover… scientists don't do public relations all that well. Even the truck, was black, not white… your brand has a color scheme people!

    Rover should have been roving, NASA personal all in white lab coats or NASA blue button down shirt with pocket protector, as a use of the agency's color scheme and playful joke about 'scientists'. And a NASA band, all kazoos and ukuleles.
