Cirque Du Soleil dazzled both Miami Superbowl attendees and a billion television viewers with it's Pre-Game Show that started Superbowl XLI .
CMEANN Productions inflatables served as scenery, props, and performers !
First, three helium footballs and four helium spheres colorfully decorated as helmets carried a kid who "bounced" across the stadium .The kid - Mark Rosas, a grandchild of CMEANN lead seamstress Maria Rosas - rehearsed for many days in CMEANN's parking lot prior to his theatrical debut.
Then two helium alligators were lead out, dancing down the field, while Cirque performers flew off Russian swings between four giant cold air inflated palm trees.
Finally , cheerleaders rolled out eight giant cold air sealed beachballs, and the head cheerleaders lead a mock game with two giant cold air sealed footballs.All were decorated with brightly colored graphics designed by Miami based artist Romero Britto.
CMEANN staff, teamed with local stagehands, wrangled the inflatables both on and off the field.
