“Compliments Guy” Blake Grigsby Chooses AmpliVox Megaphone To Brighten People’s Day

Next time you walk around the streets of Chicago, be sure listen closely. You might just receive a compliment.

By now, you have likely seen the viral videos circulating the internet of "compliments guy" Blake Grigsby, a DePaul University student who has become an internet sensation for his hidden camera and comedy videos. His series, “Drive By Compliments,” documents Blake driving around Chicago neighborhoods in a convertible shouting compliments to strangers walking the streets.

Fox & Friends' Steve Doocy and Blake Grigsby
with the AmpliVox Mini-Meg Megaphone
Thanks to "Drive By Compliments," Blake's YouTube channel has exploded, garnering over 20 million views. He’s even appeared on the national television program Fox & Friends showcasing his complimentary talents on the streets of New York City.

Of course, Blake’s efforts would be quite difficult if he didn't have a way to amplify his voice, which is why when Blake recently hit the streets again to film "Drive By Compliments 2," he used an AmpliVox S600 Mini-Meg megaphone to deliver compliments over the hustle and bustle of traffic and other ambient noises.

"I always knew that I would need a megaphone for 'Drive By Compliments 2' but I hit the jackpot with the AmpliVox Mini-Meg megaphone," he told us. "It was small and durable, making it perfect for yelling out of a car. Thankfully it did not distort my voice, making it clear what I was saying. Compliments should be heard loud and clear and the AmpliVox Mini-Meg megaphone did just that."

S600 - Mini-Meg 10-Watt Megaphone
  • Ultra lightweight at 2 lbs.
  • Requires 4 D-Cell batteries (not included)
  • Siren function
  • Adjustable Volume Control
  • Attached carrying strap
  • Folds for easily portability
  • Up to 20 hours continuous talk time

If you anticipate speaking in smaller groups or across shorter distances, an AmpliVox Mini-Meg megaphone is a lightweight and portable solution perfect for your needs. Though small in size, our Mini-Meg bullhorns cover a range of 100 yards and pack a powerful punch of 10 watts of sound. The device is perfect for professionals who handle emergency management, crowd control, event management—and yes, even compliments.

We look forward to seeing what Blake does next. Until then, check out his videos on YouTube. For the latest AmpliVox news, follow us on Twitter at @AmpliVox.
