Playboy and A&E’s “Bates Motel” Event at Comic Con 2014, Sponsored by Patron XO Cafe and Triumph Motorcycles



On July 25th, Playboy and A&E hosted the most talked about party during the 2014 Comic-Con International: San Diego weekend as they transformed 40,000 square feet of outdoor space into their exclusive “Bates Motel” themed event. Guests entered through a “Bates Motel” check-in area and received a pair of polarized sunglasses that, when worn inside, offered a voyeuristic look into the “Bates Motel” façade on display.

Celebrities walking the red carpet were given the opportunity to take a key from the “Bates Hotel” valet stand at the end of the carpet and attempt to start the engine of the Triumph Scrambler Custom on display, courtesy of Triumph Motorcycles America and South Bay Motorsports. Orlando Bloom, Vera Farmiga, Norman Reedus, and Shane West all successfully started the engine and were each able to make a monetary donation to the charity of their choice on behalf of Triumph Motorcycles America.
