Root Suit on Shark Tank Show
|Collin Grussing Inventor of the Spandex|
What started out as a fun costume project has mushroomed into a full fledged business now sporting dozens of spandex suits and accessories to choose from. They gained a lot of exposure for their unique costumes when the Cartoon Network was having Shaquille O’Neal host one of their Award Shows and wanted him to wear a Root Suit during his performance. The only problem was his size in which they custom made a XXXXXL Rootsuit just for Shaq.
They also got a tremendous amount of free publicity during a Vancouver Canucks Game when green men in rootsuit spandex suits was doing their best to distract the Hockey Players in the penalty box.
This helped propel the full sized spandex suits to thousands of more eager customers that continue to send in videos about how much fun they are having while wearing a RootSuit Costume. In fact the root suits have become such a major success that there is now several copycat spandex suits now on the market. But as with most knock-off products, you get what you pay for and the copycat rootsuits are made much cheaper then the originals.

|Hm, I wonder who that is?|
On the other hand how proprietary is this invention? I can already hear Kevin O'Leary saying why cant he just start the Mr. Wonderful costumes that also covers your face. Whats stopping other copycats from also making spandex suits? Then it will all come down to Branding in which the Root Suit clearly has first movers advantage. They already produce dozens of different colors and styles and an impressive list of accessories. I really like the neon light tie that you could make a business out of all by itself.
