Nomads BrowniesPosted on 01/09/2011 by itcnz
Staff at the Nomads hostel in Auckland, with the exception of the cleaning crew and the manager, are all graduates of ITC, but they recently realised they had something else in common… brown skin.
What began as a bit of a joke between graduates Boi, Mark, John, Melish, Gabe and Francis has quickly become a feature of the Nomads Auckland experience.
Dubbing themselves the Nomads Brownies, the staff members had t-shirts made up for the end-of-year work party with their Brownie nicknames on the back.
The Nomads Brownies are:
Mark – Afro Kid Brownie
Boi – Pork Chop Brownie
John – Baby Brownie
Gabe – Gubbs Brownie
Melish – Mad Mel Brownie
Francis – Speed Off Brownie
The company loves it and customers have started to pick up on the joke. Winter Brownies hoodies have been ordered and t-shirts for the coming summer are underway.
But it doesn’t stop there!
The Brownies are now the stars of the hostel’s new virtual tour, which takes viewers on a virtual tour of the hostel with some good Brownies humour thrown in. Check it out at: www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_B-zqq9EBo
The Brownies also feature in the Mad Travel Destination Guide and have their own Facebook page with a large and growing following.
And now they’re going global, well, Australasian at least. Baby Brownie, John, has recently moved to Australia to work for a Nomads hostel in Sydney. John has begun recruiting and has one new member already. Who knows where it will end!Posted in News | Leave a reply
