Throwback Thursday: Fourth of July Daredevil Challenge

July 02, 2015

As we head into the holiday weekend, we couldn’t resist taking advantage of this Throwback Thursday to celebrate Independence Day. Here’s to summer adventures, fireworks and a long weekend — enjoy!

America loves a daredevil, from that crazy dude who walked across the Grand Canyon on a tightrope, to that crazy dude who locked himself in chains underwater, or that crazy dude who eats glass at a dinner party. And America even loves this less adventurous yet crazy dude:

Wait … maybe America just loves crazy dudes. And you know what else Americans love? Fireworks. But have you ever wondered how you get fireworks from the factory to your town’s Independence Day Celebration?

The Ernest Family of Companies stretches from one side of the country to the other. We’re red-blooded ‘Mericans through and through. That’s why, for our challenge video, Ernest President Tim Wilson channeled his inner daredevil (complete with Evel Knievel American flag cape) and leapt into the most explosive Ernest Challenge yet!


Once again, Ernest Packaging Solutions’ team of design specialists knows how to handle the heat to protect even the most precious — or combustible — cargo you have.

Happy 4th of July, America!
