The Windy City itself couldn’t blow the flying discs off course when the Jeep® brand made a trip to Chicago with Brodie Smith, professional disc player and trick-shot performer. We brought along a specially customized 2016 Jeep Wrangler 75th Anniversary Edition outfitted with a basketball hoop in the back, and Brodie followed along in a 2016 Jeep Renegade, ready to perform his trick-shot magic around the city and its famous landmarks.
Have a look for yourself …
As you can see, Brodie Smith is no stranger to adventure, and he sure has a knack for making the discs fly. He made his mark as a trick-shot artist and Internet sensation, and has parlayed his enthusiasm for trick shots and the outdoors into TV appearances and more. Brodie is also a professional Ultimate player, and even has his own custom line of sponsored disc merchandise and apparel.
Brodie’s exploits throughout Chicago culminated at the city’s famed Navy Pier, where the Jeep brand was hosting an event as part of its Summer of Jeep activation. The basketball theme continued as Brodie challenged retired pro basketball player Jalen Rose to a shooting contest (hint: Brodie is better with a disc). Later, current pro player and Team USA representative Paul George joined the festivities — shooting hoops and signing autographs for the gathered crowd.
The Jeep brand was thrilled to share the day with Brodie in vehicles that turn heads right along with the best trick shots. The 2016 Jeep Renegade has the capability to tackle the off-road, and is designed for fun in the city. Whatever terrain you have to cross to track down your trick shots and flying discs, the 2016 Jeep Renegade is ready to take on the world.
The 2016 Jeep Wrangler 75th Anniversary Edition, for its part, is authentic to the core, with distinct Anniversary Edition details including bronze exterior and interior trim, premium wheels, 75th Anniversary edition badges and more — including, now, thanks to Brodie, a basketball hoop.
