Sarasota Bradenton International airport premiers viral video

Posted: Updated:
SARASOTA COUNTY, FL (WFLA) -

The Sarasota Bradenton International (SRQ) Airport launched a unique and unusual viral video.  The one-minute piece features a local Parkour specialist (individuals who move from one place to another, negotiating the obstacles in between) and American Ninja Warrior competitor traveling the terminal with an array of incredible moves.

Officials say the video was a collaborative effort of SRQ staff and a local production company.  SRQ President, Chief Executive Officer, Fredrick J. Piccolo said, "Our vision was to create a unique and fast-moving piece to compliment the Do You SRQ Campaign showing the convenience and ease of traveling through SRQ.  We are lucky enough to have an incredible talent in town that could take that vision and turn it into reality and in such a way that anyone of any age can enjoy."

Featured in the video is Sean Morris, a 25-year-old Sarasota resident and 4-year competitor of NBC's American Ninja Warrior program.  Morris is also a personal trainer and fervent enthusiast and participator of Parkour, or "Free Running" as it is often referred, is a free expressive movement sport based around the interaction with urban obstacles and surrounding terrain.

SRQ is hoping for a huge viral boost as partners, employees, media, and friends circulate the video across the nation.
