Title: Pitch Month: Celebrity Deaths 2016/ Japan WTF Advertising
Run Time: 22 min 42 secs
Host: Luke Rodgers
Panelists: Oktober, Nabbit, Major Monocle
Topic: Pitch Month: Celebrity Deaths of 2016 and WTF Japan Advertising
The panel talks about the media saturation that happens whenever one of these major celebrities dies. Which prompts Major Monocle to bring up a nightmare scenario of when someone who is basically a media empire dies (i.e. What will happen if Kim Kardashian ever dies).
Oktober laments the death of Prince Be from PM Dawn because of a personal connection.
The panel moves onto The Advertising Arms Race: Weirdness Edition between the U.S. and Japan. Nabbit brings up the Arnold Schwarzenegger power drink ads.
Oktober talks about the old days, before the Internet (a shock to Major Monocle’s understanding of the world) when celebrities did ads in other countries all the time, but unless you lived there you wouldn’t see them.
Game: “Drink It” Or “Sink It” Challenge: Masquerade til Morning
Major Monocle was not a fan of this one, mainly because he doesn’t like champagne….he does say that once he got more into it he started to not mind so much. Nabbit, well his tongue was just broken. Oktober looooooooved it and is ready for Luke to start mixing pitchers of it. The recipe is posted on the main page. Tell us what you think in the comments.
