[CT] Team Chiquita-Universal | Free bananas!
Marcovdw
INTRODUCTION


Once upon a time, a little yellow single-celled organism was searching around for some food for his friends, the other little yellow single-celled organisms. He found a tree full of bananas, and it became the most holy food for them; only apples (or babbles, as they would pronounce them) came close afterwards, but the bananas stayed on top forever. They could continue to eat bananas without anyone noticing, until capitalism.

A bunch of Americans found out about the bananas, and decided to eat them as well. The organisms weren't too happy about that, but the Americans only wanted to sell bananas to them for ridiciously high prices. The organisms agreed on the deal, because they just couldn't live without bananas. The Americans founded a company called United Fruit Company, which would later be known as Chiquita Brands International.

After the deal, the little yellow single-celled organisms were living in peace again, even during both World Wars and the Cold War, but their rest was disturbed again in the 21st century when an American/French film crew decided to use them for a movie. The company, who named theirself Illumination Entertainment, had a big plan with them, and they even gave them a name that will always be recognized, the Minions!

Illumination Entertainment became a subsidiary of Universal Studios, a rich and famous American company. The film, called Despicable Me and released in 2010, became a hugh success, and the Minions became rich. A sequel would follow 3 years later, and that made them even richer. In 2015, the Minions will finally get their own movie, suprisingly called Minions, where they will finally be main characters. Despicable Me 3 is scheduled for 2017.

One of the Minions was a big fan of cycling, and decided to found a cycling team with the money he earned from the movies and the bananas. He, however, did not have enough money to it, neither did all the Minions together. They first asked Universal Studios to sponsor them. They decided to help, but they didn't offer enough money to fund the entire team. Then Chiquita came to rescue, and offered an amazing amount of money for the team, accompanied by a giant raise in the price of the bananas. Team Chiquita-Universal was born!

Spoiler
This story is completely fictional. All characters appearing in this work are fictitious as well. Any resemblance to real persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental, but I hope the little yellow single-celled organisms are real Pfft

Nice Grin I'm very curious about your jersey as well, and about how you'll continue to shape this HQ Wink

@Heine - I would love to have a dancing banana, but I guess it's impossible Frown

I believe that every response in this thread should now be accompanied with a minion gif. Just like for the velogames thread we always reply with Didi the Devil pictures.

Who doesn't love minions eh?

Love the funny side being brought to the man game, that's what it should be all about!

I don`t like Minions. Pfft

But I like how you started your HQ here with a little fun story. Indeed quite interested in how this continues. That includes the jersey obviously.

I have a feeling everytime I enter your HQ the ammount of time it will take me to load the page will be high. Pfft

Anyway, good luck to the season. I actually got scared when I saw the team's name and I thought it was another South American team.

@Miguel98 - Grin. I was first aiming on a South American-ish team, but then I (luckily) made the switch to this.

I'm making the jersey myself. It is (for now, still working on it) better than I expected (but still not as good as most jersey designers). I'm making the last little tweaks right now, so it should be released this evening for sure!

JERSEY


One of the first thing you should do when you make a cycling team is creating a jersey. A few Minions were working on it, and now, they'll finally present their creation. But first, to kill the suspense, something else.

Some Minions were appointed a role within the team. Unfortunately, not all of them could be given a role as manager, so all the Minions are appointed as mascots. Watch out for yellow invasions along the route!

We also found 2 new minor sponsors. Illumination Entertainment, part of co-sponsor Universal Studios, decided to give some extra money to the team, mainly for marketing purposes. They also made an offical team anthem, and a commercial. They can be found at our website (second post in this thread, red.). The other minor sponsor will be Gameloft, a French game developer, who made our official game. It can also be found at our webstie.

So, that's it for now. Although I have the feeling I've forgotten something...
