A group of students from the University of South Wales have been selected as one of only 100 teams worldwide to take part in the Red Bull Challenge 2014.
Performance and Media students Blain Neale and David Harrison along with Samuel Jump who studies Music Technology will now have seven days to travel across Europe using only cans of red bull as currency.
The Naughty Moys, the only group from Wales that were chosen to compete in the challenge, will soon be given their starting point which will be located in London, Paris, Milan or Vienna.
The team will receive a Welcome Kit, a Moto G mobile phone, a sealed envelope with emergency funds and a case of 24 cans of red bull. They must rely on their bartering skills to trade cans of red bull for everything they need on their journey – food, a place to sleep transportation and other adventures on the way that make the experience truly epic.
The University students will be required to visit checkpoints, share photos and videos, and rally support from followers back home. Thirty checkpoints are located in different cities throughout Europe. When the team uses their Moro G to check in, they will be tasked with a fun challenge that requires strategy, creativity and speed, only to be rewarded with more cans of red bull.
“With our ability as performers and our creative nature we intend to entertain the public through song and dance, gaining their trust. We will then use our charm and wit to help us acquire the essentials that we need to get through the 7 days. We all pride ourselves on our people skills and manners. We plan to exchange red bull and our creative talents for rides, food and shelter!,” says Blain.
Naughty Moys will leave their starting point on April 4th and have one week to make it to the finish line in Berlin by 5.00pm on April 11th. Read more about the team and be sure to keep updated with their daily activity.
