Hip Image announces launch of World Domination Tour

Taking over YYC one ridiculous photo at a time


(CALGARY, June 13, 2016)—Although it might not draw the same kind of crowds as Justin Bieber’s world tour, Hip Image’s beloved Buttercup VW bus is launching a roadshow of her own: #PhotobombYYC . On Thursday, June 16th, Buttercup and the Hip Image team will be packing up the bus and photobombing Calgary at various locations.


“We’re pumped to be taking Buttercup and our brand of craziness on the road,” says Jo Williams, partner. “Follow our route at #PhotobombYYC as we work our way around the city.”


See below for current stops—keep in mind the list will grow. A number of open, pre-planned locations where the public can experience Buttercup first-hand and get their own free photo are marked with ***. Buttercup will also be making random stops as she sees Calgary landmarks and fun photo opportunities (fingers crossed for no unplanned mechanical stops).


“If you us want to make a stop at your location, text 403-827-9820, tweet @hipimage or email us at,” says Monique de St Croix, partner. “Keep in mind that Buttercup is 308 in dog years and hills are not her friend, so she is a bit slow on the slow side.”
