TNGG Covers Apple Event
Love, the Bus Boys Promote Upcoming Trip, Web Series at Boston Apple Store

Tyler Dunham, Seth Brown, and Corey McLean will set out on July 10 on their converted school bus to visit communities across the country and document their travels via a web series.
To promote their upcoming cross-country road trip for charity, the guys from Love, the Bus appeared at the Boylston Apple Store June 17 to discuss their ideas and get feedback from an attentive crowd on the top floor of the three-story building.
Dunham, 24, one of the three members of Love, the Bus, all of whom are Maine natives, described the Apple Store event as “awesome,” and that he thought the crowd of about 30 people was a perfect number.
“We really are into having a conversation and it’s tough for us to go into a lecture hall and talk to an entire school. It’s not as interactive and it’s not as fun for us, and so this was a great opportunity to have a dialogue and a really supportive environment,” he said.
During their upcoming trip, the Love, the Bus team will be accepting various challenges from viewers and followers to raise money for different communities.
“Our goal with the whole series is to find and fund America’s worthiest local youth causes,” said Dunham. “Right now we’re basically running on fundraising that we’ve done individually, but we’re hoping that kind of putting ourselves out there more and more and doing more events and more challenges, we’ll gather a following to really have a tremendous impact by the end of the summer.”
While none of the challenges have been planned out yet, followers of Love, the Bus have already started sending in suggestions, like running a three legged race across Manhattan, surfing tanker waves in the Gulf of Mexico, or noodling for catfish in the bayous of Louisiana.
Dunham said that in addition to the more adventurous, funny challenges, some people have asked them to talk to local organizations. “In all likelihood, we’ll probably choose several throughout the week and we’ll do a combo of the more adventurous ones that’ll probably turn into our episodes because they’re a lot more creative or entertaining.”
