Airstream Inc. has rolled out the latest video in its “Live Riveted” campaign, designed to “capture the spirit of the Airstream lifestyle.” According to a press release, the video focuses on Tim Flannery – champion baseball coach, musician, surfer and philanthropist – and showcases personal and inspiring stories capturing his passion for living life to its fullest.
“Our goal through this unique campaign is to create and connect a community of people that encompasses the spirit of the Airstream experience,” said Airstream President and CEO Bob Wheeler. “Tim is a perfect example of someone who has a passion for life and philanthropy that cannot be ignored. Whether on the road in his Airstream, coaching baseball or playing benefit concerts, his inspirational life embodies what it means to live riveted.”
As a former MLB player with the San Diego Padres and current third-base coach for the San Francisco Giants, Flannery’s passion for life transcends baseball into his abilities as a talented songwriter, avid surfer and musician with his band The Lunatic Fringe. Flannery’s philanthropic efforts also have helped raise funds for the Bryan Stow Fund. Stow suffered traumatic injuries from an incident on Opening Day 2011, and through benefit concerts, CD sales, and silent auctions, Flannery has raised more than $200,000 to help support the Stow family.
“The unwavering love and support from Tim has been, and always will be, truly overwhelming,” said Erin Stow Collins, Bryan’s sister. “Our family understands ‘Live Riveted’ to mean to never give up, find joy in the moments and take nothing for granted. We are so grateful for Tim, our Honey Badger, and Airstream for continuing to spread awareness about Bryan’s story.”

“I was thrilled to become part of Airstream’s Live Riveted community and share my story to encourage others to never give up and always live life to the fullest,” said Flannery. “I hope to inspire people to follow their dreams each and every day, always seeking new experiences, and for me that is what Airstream is all about.”
