AREA15, an experiential retail and entertainment complex set to open in 2020, is sharing survival tips for getting through quarantine, lockdown and social distancing during COVID-19.

The immersive attraction in Las Vegas reimagines shopping, and boasts live performances, curated retail, virtual reality, interactive art and exclusive dining.

AREA15 has now shared a playful, extraterrestrial-themed video featuring quarantine experts Hilly and Nilly, produced by Chris Wink, director of content and cool sh*t at AREA15.

In the video, Hilly and Nilly are two aliens quarantined in the desert in Nevada, offering advice to humans on how to pass the time without becoming bored or anxious.

“We’ve been inspired to see so many people unleash their creativity, compassion and positivity to help themselves and others navigate this challenging time,” said Wink.

“We hope our quarantine experts’ own personal experiences and heartfelt advice lifts spirits as well.”

AREA15’s song and video were created by Nate and Hila, and additional visuals were provided by David Johngrass.

AREA15 is the world’s first purpose-built experiential entertainment complex, offering live events, immersive activations, art installations, and extraordinary design.

It also boasts unique retail experiences, groundbreaking technology, bars and restaurants, and a culinary experience by Todd English.

In addition, AREA15’s anchor experience is Meow Wolf Las Vegas, from the experiential Santa Fe conceptual art collective.

Blooloop recently chatted to AREA15 co-creators, Michael Beneville of Beneville Studios and Winston Fisher of Fisher Brothers.

“It’s a cool space, it’s entertainment, it’s amusement,” said Fisher. “We are a storytelling company. It’s a word that you hear a lot, though only a few people actually do it with authenticity.”
