In one episode of her popular talk show, Ellen DeGeneres bemoaned the fact that she couldn’t be in two places at once.
Lots of people wanted her at events, but her schedule was packed.
John Kernaghan was listening to her show that day.
He’s a Toronto-based mascot maker. His company, Hogtown Mascots, makes life-sized puppets that are used as “mascots” for companies and sports teams.
He decided to make it possible for the entertainer to be in two places at once.
John created a giant mascot costume that looked just like Ellen DeGeneres. And then he sent it to her.
