A Darn Good Time, Doncha Know!


What's 8 feet tall, smells of cedar, weighs in at over 500 pounds and is now one of the hottest attraction in Fargo ? If

you guessed "Wood-Chip Marge," located at the historic Fargo Theatre, you're right!

Video Arts' assistance in staging and AV support was sought out by Merv Griffin Productions of Hollywood for the Special Edition DVD release of the Coen Brothers' film Fargo . This world premiere event required some fancy footwork as the "star" of the event was a hand carved 8-foot Washington Red Cedar sculpture of Marge Gunderson (portrayed by Oscar award-winner Francis McDormand.) The statue, shipped in from

Seattle, was awarded to Mayor Bruce Furness and the City of Fargo by MGM Home Entertainment.

Highlights of the event included DVD
giveaways of the classic film, a performance from the West Fargo High School Marching Band, an appearance by Fargo's own Kristin Rudrud who played Jean Lundegaard in the movie, not
to mention an Arby's roast beef eating competition. Video Arts is grateful for the teamwork of Spider & Co, the Fargo-Moorhead CVB and the wonderful staff of the Fargo Theatre in making this an event to remember!
