Pres Got GOT! Pres Got GOT! So as the story goes, during the first Barstool Idol a gentleman had a grand ol’ idea of sending someone from the Cracker factory to a Black Barbershop for a video. El Presidente ate it up with a spoon. Thought it was a “Bananas” idea for content. There’s only one issue…I did that motherfucking video two years ago. And it was to essentially universal praise, no less. So it got me thinking, what other ideas and content went under that big nose from over the years? I decided to hire local stand up comedian/actor (same damn thing in this city) Blake Rice to find out and, boy oh boy, did we find out. It’s simply amazing Blake got approved because, and I quote of Pageviews, “I don’t like you, but I like your ideas”. BANANAS.
Let’s go through the ideas brick by brick (Obviously there’s a lot of my stuff in here because I KNEW Pres would miss them. I asked around the office and it’s tough to find content/ideas where we were 100% he wouldn’t catch on. Sure, I could’ve had Blake pitch to “Save Detroit” or “Make a Bachelorette Audition video”, but that would’ve been too obvious).
Basketball With Local Homeslices – Early 2016.
Barstool Throwback accounts, eh? Let’s let the Handsome one explain this one (keep in mind Pres said PMT took Hank away from the project).
And IG/Snapchat show of the office? Fuck. If only we had some sort of Lunchimes With Someone where the host goes around the office to get material of what it’s really like working here. Shit, he/she can answer questions and take comments directly from Stoolies, too.
Local Dive Bar Reviews. Check.
And WWYD For A Follow can be explained lovely by Sales Guy Louis.
Barstool Hard Knocks – Explained by Spags.
Arena League Tryouts? Nah, Mo and I didn’t do that years ago with Ron Jaworski grading us out like a combine (Can’t find the video because of the great hire that was DEVNEST)
I don’t think anyone has ever done the Lingerie Football League dance, either…
And that’s that. It all fun and games (I think?), but it’s always nice to put that Big Brain into a pretzel. Along with Trent coming in from the clouds, there’s two that slipped by the goalie that is the great El Presidente.
Also give @BlakeRice a follow for his stellar work and calling out Pres’s shitty shirt. Great show, young chap.
