Mark Baker is U2BROTHR

“If you don’t have a dream, how are you going to make a dream come true?”

To say Mark Baker is a huge U2 fan is an understatement. Mark had an idea. His dream was to be pulled up on stage by U2 during a show. He needed an idea. A long time ago, Bono used to hit the stage under the moniker of the Mirror Ball Man. The Mirror Ball Man was a character Bono played on the 1992 Zoo TV tour dates in Europe and North America. He was dressed in a silver suit and cowboy hat. So with the help of Betabrand’s Disco lab, Mark decided he would be the Mirror Ball Man 2.0.

Mark is a huge fan of U2, even building a ‘shrine’ to the band in his basement. After winning a car in a contest held at the radio station, Mark’s girlfriend bought him a personalized license plate that reads U2BROTHR. Easily one of the biggest U2 fans around, Mark received plenty of friendly teasing from others, but Mark’s passion for the band, and his dream of being pulled up on stage during a U2 concert, was the building block for Michael Corbiere’s documentary, U2 Brothr.

We’d say the Disco Lab gear helped him get noticed.
