The Marshmallow Fly-N'-Fry is an event paid for with taxpayer dollars whether they know it or not and regardless of whether or not they believe it to be a wise use of their money. It is held every year at Heritage Park in Farmington Hills, put on by the fire department as a way to lure kids out there so the kids can be taught what firemen do in their down time. The video for 2010's Fly-N'-Fry was turned into a short segment for the SWOCC Studios Special Events Show.


Kids, kids, and more kids were everywhere in Heritage Park, each of them bringing oodles of marshmallows to be loaded. The Farmington Hills Fire Department used this as an opportunity to teach kids about how fire trucks are set up and let kids try equipment on.

The marshmallows were loaded onto a big crane, where they’d be dropped from several feet high for kids to run like crazy and catch. The scene of kids charging forward when told to was played out with all the gusto of shooting spare footage for Braveheart, per Kat’s wishes. The Dozerfleet founder added some Scottish-sounding music to make the end result sound even more like a Braveheart outtake.

A small army of children squealed like pigs with absolute delight, as they hoarded marshmallows the way that the city tried to hoard tax money for pet projects like this one.


Sam provided her voice to narrate this one, since Kat was not available to narrate her own piece at the time and Eric worried that the Dozerfleet founder’s voice would not be appropriate for this piece’s narration. All that was left was to edit it together and slap the music in.
