Del Mar Fans and Lighting Guest Blog – fanSync

The Power of the Internet

Many of you remember our “There are fans and there is Fanimation” campaign from a couple of years ago.  Well, this weekend—thanks to a post on reddit—the jaw dropping Torto caught fire on social media.   The clip from our commercial was viewed over 1.3 million times!  We also had tens of thousands of unique visitors to our website as a result.

Hello there, my name is Levon DC, sometimes pronounced Lēvon. I don’t like when people mispronounce my name, but it happens all the time.  My father, Tom Frampton, named me after Leavenworth Prison.  Yes, that’s right, I was named after a prison.  Thanks a lot dad. I guess it was destiny that I would end up a trouble maker.  At first, I would just do small stick ups here and there, you know, so I could get by and feed my family.  A few years ago I started robbing banks.  I was great at it!  I went coast to coast wearing different disguises.

Top 10 Reasons You Need fanSync

It’s less money than a fitbit and won’t cause a fight when discovered in a stocking. Retail prices range from $79 to $109 based on features. The only ceiling fan it doesn’t control is in our museum.
