Have you ever wanted to live the fantasy of being Jay Z or Brad Pitt for a day? Have you ever wanted the VIP treatment that makes you feel like a celebrity? Birmingham native Charles Logan has created a new service that makes you feel like a big deal at your Bachelor Party. I talked to Charles about his new company.
DD: This is pretty cool! Tell me about your company.
CL: I always wanted to be a high roller when I was growing up! I made a decent living but never made enough money to live the high life. So my buddy and I came up with an idea! We decided that we would take turns pretending to be the important person that night. So we bought this security uniform, and took turns driving the other guy around. We really got into it and started to wear an ear piece when it was our turn to work security. The most common question girls would ask me when I was playing the security guard was “who is that guy? And of course I had a different story every week. One time he was in a band, another time he was a football player. The stories went on and on. Unbelievably, we both met a lot of ladies doing this. And although we started doing it to get girls, it became more about playing the part, and seeing what we could get away with. One time we were in Los Angeles and got a $900 dinner comped because the manager thought that I was famous. The feeling that you get when you are the star is something that is unmatched by anything else. The night of my partner in crimes Bachelor Party, we did the usual scam, only this time with 25 buddies. It was the best night of our lives. We owned Vegas that night. Every girl thought that my boy was a superstar. I saw the power of numbers, and came up with this King for a Day Bachelor Party service. We give you the full VIP treatment with a driver, we dress your buddies up as security guards, and it becomes a night that you and your buddies will never forget. I even have deals at clubs where they act like you are someone important! We have the DJ announce your name and say you are in the house! Then when the ladies see you and your crew, they go crazy!
DD: What is the best story you have heard from one of your parties?
CL: We once had a guy who pretended that he was a Prince from Abu Dhabi. It was hilarious because he was a white guy, and 90% of his friends were white. As ridiculous as it sounded, it didn’t matter, when the DJ announced Prince Naseem in the house, the ladies went nuts! It’s always funny to hear about these nights. We truly create an experience that is bigger than a Bachelor Party. It is an event that they will never forget.
