PEMCO Says: Sounders Fans, Meet "Goat Renter Guy"…and his goats!

This Saturday, Sounders fans can meet the famed critters from PEMCO’s ad



​​​SEATTLE – Signs of spring are popping up all over the Northwest, and that includes sightings of bramble-clearing goats compliments of PEMCO Insurance’s Northwest Profile # 80, "Goat Renter Guy."

This Saturday, April 11, at 5 p.m., the rectangular-eyed ruminants from PEMCO's "Goat Renter Guy" TV spot will make a guest appearance at PEMCO's pre-game booth at the Sounders FC soccer game at Qwest Field.

"We invite soccer fans and goat enthusiasts alike to meet the famed critters from PEMCO's ads, get their photo taken with the goats, and give PEMCO's prize wheel a spin to win some fun stuff," said PEMCO spokesperson Jon Osterberg.

The goats' appearance at Saturday's Sounders game is a preview of their upcoming work. Sixty of them will clear an unruly patch of blackberry thicket April 25 in Magnuson Park at the Seattle Mountaineers Club headquarters for an open house event sponsored in part by PEMCO. The Mountaineers will then plant the cleared area with native Northwest vegetation.

"It's that time of year when Northwest folks get outside and think about springtime projects," Osterberg said. "For us, that means Goat Renter Guy is top of mind. We're excited to partner with a great local organization to put these goats to work."

PEMCO's "Goat Renter Guy" profile highlights the region's use of the ruminants to clear blackberries and other unruly patches of vegetation, bramble, thicket, or just about any digestible overgrowth as a natural alternative to using potentially harmful and polluting equipment.

"Goat Renter Guy" is one of about 50 profiles from PEMCO's "We're A Lot Like You. A Little Different." campaign that seeks to celebrate our shared values through tongue-in-cheek caricatures of recognizable Northwest residents.
