“The Nug Nation” is Bringing Cannabis to Life… For Real… Sort Of

Nugville, CO (April 19, 2016) — “The Nug Nation” is pleased to announce the release of its pilot episode, “Selfie Ban.” A stop motion comedy series featuring popular strains of cannabis fashioned into a community of animated characters, the potentially controversial short-form program is poised to bring cannabis entertainment to an entirely new market. The video was launched on TheNugNation.com, as well as on YouTube.

In “Selfie Ban,” local Nug News at 9 anchor Bong Burgundy reports on Nugville’s recently implemented selfie stick ban. Local gas station owner Affy and his plebeian employee Diesel don’t see eye-to-eye on this controversial matter. Shenanigans ensue!

The launch will also be promoted at the upcoming Cannabis Film FestivalApril 23 – 24 in Garberville, CA. “Selfie Ban” will be screened for a live audience on April 23rd at 11:30 pm. To get tickets, visit http://cannabisfilmfestival.com/.

Mikey Peterson, veteran content producer and creator of “The Nug Nation,” is optimistic about the potential impact the series will have, creating entertaining media that can be appreciated by a wide variety of viewers. “We wanted to create something new and fresh, and we also saw an opportunity to fill a void with content that’s completely unique,” Peterson said. “We’re excited to position ourselves as a leader in cannabis content production and creative marketing.”

“The Nug Nation’s” co-creator Dylan Pfohl explained the series’ roots. “As non-smokers, we thought the names people give weed were clever and vivid and naturally lent themselves to characters just as imaginative,” explained Pfohl. “We had a blast coming up with each character’s backstory, quirks, and characteristics.”

Consumers can anticipate a mobile app with access to exclusive content, celebrity interviews, and a nug avatar builder where viewers can “nug themselves” into a personalized cannabis character. “The Nug Nation” will offer tailored branding and marketing solutions to the cannabis industry including product placement, advertising, brand licensing, affiliate marketing, and more.
