FANDANGO AWARDS WILDCAT BELT TO KEVIN HART
In 2017, actor Kevin Hart sold more movie tickets through Fandango than any other performer. You could call it a “championship performance.”
In fact, Fandango wanted to recognize Hart – a known wrestling fan – for the prolific ticket sales, by awarding him with a championship belt. So they turned to Wildcat Championship Belts, fabricator of championship belts for everyone from Nathan’s Famous Hot Dogs to WWE.
“They already had a vision for what they wanted the belt to look like. It was up to me to bring that vision to life,” said Andrew Lazarchik, owner of Wildcat.
So Wildcat got to work and crafted the belt, adorned with a big Fandango logo, movie ticket imagery, and ‘2017’ engraved onto one of the side plates, the year of Hart’s prolific ticket sales.
The actor was awarded the belt during the premier of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, staring Hart.
“That was very cool,” said Lazachik. “I never envisioned one of my belts would make it to the red carpet!”
