Yeah, it’s getting a lot more enjoyable these days. The team is clicking. But I’ve got to pick on Thunder TV. They are using very old aerial footage of downtown that really isn’t as complimentary as they might think.
First of all, the video shows a dead Skirvin hotel. Lights out. Dormant. No guests. No life. If you don’t believe me, slow it down while watching it on DVR. And while you’re at it, notice that the Sonic neon sign is glowing atop its old headquarters along Robert S. Kerr Ave. That dates the video back to pre-2002.
Come on Thunder, let’s show off downtown as it is today, not from six years ago!
Sure, it might cost your ad firm or whatever some extra money, but here’s a freebie game intermission idea to make up for it: Rickrolling. Sure, it’s a two-year-old gimick, but people still love to sing along with ole Rick… so put a new spin on it. Have a regular segment where the crowd votes for the best rickroller caught by the Thunder Cam. We’re talking about fans who dress like Rick, dance like Rick, lipsynch like Rick… they are the embodiment of Rick!
And if you’re clueless as to the whole idea before rickrolling – well… do some research or just enjoy the above video.
