T-Rex Video Campaign Reiterates Best Practices

Amidst the ever-changing COVID-19 climate, the Montana Business Assistance Connection (MBAC) has taken a creative approach to address continued best practices. In our first video, we introduced Rex & Friends (Helena-based actors dressed in inflatable T-Rex costumes), who show us ways to continue best practices at grocery stores.

Filmed at Van’s Thriftway in Helena, Montana, the video takes a creative, lighthearted approach to a not-so-lighthearted situation. MBAC executive director Brian Obert shared, “We wanted to produce a video that would bring some humor to safety protocols aimed at reducing the transmission of this virus, not because the situation isn’t serious, but because this is a tense time and people are scared. Laughter is great medicine and, more than ever, we need to remember that our community, and the people in it, matter most.”



At the Montana Business Assistance Connection (MBAC), we work to improve the economy and community assets in Lewis and Clark, Broadwater, and Meagher Counties.
