Flying High For Milk
Trapeze-artist teen hopes to become next "Got Milk?" celebrity.
Hanging out with Victoria Pike, a sophomore at Miami, Florida's New World School of the Arts, takes on a very literal meaning.
The 16-year-old is a student of aerial arts, as in the kind you see in the circus.
"You can flip, twist, or strike a pose," Pike said. "It's awesome just to be suspended up there."
Pike's circus talent is what she thinks will set her apart from the 27 finalists vying to be the next teenage Milk Mustache celebrity.
"When I show people video of what I do," Pike said, "They're like, 'this exists?' They never think ordinary people do this."
Pike has been training at the South Florida Circus Arts School in North Miami for a year now, and she says the Got Milk? campaign is a perfect fit, because that's what she drinks to stay fit.
"Sports drinks have never really done it for me," she says. "I prefer to go natural, so I drink milk."
