500 Schlumpf-Figuren am Zürcher Stadelhofen wecken Neugier
Spring is here – at least from an astronomical point of view. And it has also arrived in the Schlumpfendorf: On the occasion of this good news, Sony Pictures yesterday placed 500 blue, 20cm high Schlump figures made of vinyl at Zurich’s Stadelhofen, in order to give the numerous passers-by – in the best case – the first spring fever, or at least a smile .
A mostly blue, but motley picture, made of smurfs, flowers and blossoms, presented itself to passers-by and commuters from early morning until late in the evening, which led to countless photos and social media posts.
If you took a closer look, you saw two “extraordinary” versions of the Smurf in the blue Smurfs assembly. These are originally neutral, white Smurf figures, which the former Swiss freestyle skier (now model and presenter) and neo-Mami Mirjam “Mimi” Jäger as well as It-Girl and blogger Nives Arrigoni hand-painted and artistically painted were.
The result is two authentic, unique, remarkable works with a personal celebrity touch – handmade. The background to the campaign: The two special Smurfs will be auctioned for a good cause and the proceeds will be donated to the Children’s Hospital Zurich. Ex-Miss Switzerland from 2006 and current presenter Christa Rigozzi will also contribute a personal smurf.
Of course, it should also be mentioned at this point that the Smurfs have only withdrawn temporarily after their stay at Zurich’s Stadelhofen. Because they will come back on April 6th, and then – for everyone – to see them on the big screen. The film THE SMURFS – THE LOST VILLAGE will then start in German-speaking cinemas.
