Goodr Sunbathing With Wizards
EVERYONE LOOKS GOOD WITH A TAN
While it might be the magic that gets them all the love, we prefer to celebrate wizards for their panache: capes, pointy hats, and, beards. But just wait until you see one on their beach run rocking these fresh blue shades with gold lenses. Abracadabra, Muggles.
But the goodr founders are nothing if not foolish. After months of research and many failed attempts, the goodr founders learned that The Myr was constantly on the lookout for pool boys to assist with the resort’s hugely popular magical lagoon. By fabricating elaborate pool boy resumes and fake references from the swankiest hotels across the world, the goodr founders secured positions as pool boys at the Myr. From there it was a simple matter of making sure that they were placed on sunscreen duty when Dumbledore and Gandalf would come down for their daily sunbathing appointment. Typically, the pool boys at The Myr loathed sunscreen duty as it required them to apply and rub in generous amounts of specialty sunscreen to the various guests of the lagoon, which could take a good deal of time depending on the proclivities of the guests. But the goodr founders knew that this would give them the time needed to pitch their Running Sunglasses to the great wizards.
After several weeks of biding their time, the moment finally came and the two wizards called the goodr founders over to apply the sunscreen. The goodr founders were ecstatic and blessed the gods for their great luck when the wizards began discussing their last trail run. Not surprisingly, wizards do not frequent the same trails as mere mortals. Gandalf’s had just returned from running Lhotse, while Dumbledore had enjoyed the views at Aconcagua.
As the wizards traded stories of their adventures, the goodr founders mustered their courage and broke in to ask the wizards what kind of sunglasses they wore while up at those extreme altitudes. After recovering from the shock of having a pool boy interrupt them (a rule that was never broken), the two dismissively stated that they never run with sunglasses as all running sunglasses look awful and are not befitting of a wizard’s carefully crafted aesthetics.
With that, the goodr founders produced the goodr Running Sunglasses and handed them to the skeptical wizards. They were immediately taken with their classic, yet fun design, though the wizards questioned whether sunglasses that stylish could be used for running. The goodr founders, confident in their product, insisted that the wizards try them and see. And before they could take their next breath, the goodr founders found themselves transported to the base of Mt. Kilimanjaro. The goodr founders watched in awe as two specs at the peak of Kilimanjaro swiftly descended down the mountain to where they stood.
Upon reaching the goodr founders, the two wizards extended their hands as they congratulated the goodr founder on creating the most astonishing and attractive pair of running sunglasses they had ever worn. The two wizards immediately agreed to endorse the sunglasses, which launched goodr from a little-known brand to one of the largest sunglass companies in the world. After this momentous event, the goodr founders dubbed their newest color scheme “Sunbathing with Wizards” to honor the event that helped to make them so successful.
As a post-script, the goodr founders, Dumbledore and Gandalf remain in contact to this day and are actually the members of a barber shop quartet, which plays bi-monthly at Maggie’s Pub and Eatery in Beaufort, South Carolina.
