JAZZ™ Apples and Extreme Sports phenomenon Tim Emmett on YouTube Wednesday 30 January 2008 PDF Print JAZZ™ Apple has its first taste of fame on YouTube! With a little help from Extreme Sports phenomenon Tim Emmett Who said apples aren’t cool? JAZZ™ apples are the new pips on the block and their partnership with Tim Emmett certainly proves it. Tim - whose mastery of dare-devil stunts performed in sequence creates ‘extreme sports fusion’ - promotes JAZZ™ apples as part of a healthier more energetic lifestyle. Tim is renowned for astonishing exploits, from speeding up mountains in climbing gear to flying down in a ‘wingsuit’. Check out his latest adventure on behalf of JAZZ™ apples at YouTube.com. Or click here www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZO5-Tkk_vBw. The video shows Tim B.A.S.E jumping from a rock face in Norway and ‘flying’ down with the use of a wing suit. Three times more people have summited Mount Everest than have completed B.A.S.E jumps – even less have done so with a wingsuit. Tim reached speeds of up to 250 MPH with absolutely no petrol or CO2 emissions. In fact the only fuel he ever needs is a JAZZ apple! With numerous TV appearances, including an unforgettable race against Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson up France’s Verdon Gorge (Clarkson used a car) Tim is a polished performer. In fact, he’s as comfortable on screen as he is diving out of a plane at 12,000 feet. Yet he’s also crazy about healthy living and taking good care of our bodies. So no wonder his reaction to the sponsorship from JAZZ™ verges on the euphoric. Through an arrangement with Worldwide Fruit, Tim also presents free JAZZ™ apples (including the new British JAZZ™ crop) to students across the country to reinforce his message of healthy eating. “It’s just awesome,” he said. “I’m such a believer in eating well, and always marvelling at the treasures nature has to offer. So getting fuelled by JAZZ™ - well, it’s just mega! Hopefully, I’ll inspire all kinds of people to adopt a healthier more adventurous lifestyle, and to celebrate the wonders of life. Of course, I might gain their interest by giving them a bite from a delicious JAZZ™ apple first.” Gary Harrison, commercial manager for Worldwide Fruit which markets JAZZ™ apples in the UK, shared Tim’s delight. “Tim’s such an engaging youthful personality, a truly irrepressible action man, which makes him a perfect ambassador for JAZZ™ apples.” JAZZ™ apples are a cross between Braeburn and Royal Gala, with a distinctive aroma that includes notes of peach and melon. They are one of the most successful new ‘brands’ of produce to enter the UK market. They originate from New Zealand – the origin of Southern Hemisphere fruit from April to October – and British growers supply substantial quantities to the UK market in the current Northern Hemisphere season. This will increase over time as the trees mature. Apples can reduce the risk of heart disease and strokes thanks to their phytonutrients, while their antioxidants can help combat eye disease. With less then 50 calories on average, they still contain some five grams of fibre which aids digestion and encourages weight loss. Apples are rich in vitamins C, E and potassium. JAZZ™ apples can be purchased from the premium fruit sections of Marks & Spencer, Morrison’s, Tesco and Waitrose. www.jazzapples.co.uk www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZO5-Tkk_vBw - Ends - If you would like to interview Tim Emmett or need any high resolution images please contact Rosalind Clark on 020 7017 0896 (Rosalind@yesconsultancy.com) or Tina Fotherby on 020 7017 0892 (Tina@yesconsultancy.com) at The YES Consultancy.
