I was sitting in a bar with my friends, circa 2000:
"There's this mat you work out on and your image representation (translation: avatar) works out at the same time and - get this - Mom's don't care if their kids play it, because their kids are actually working out. Don't you see: it's genius!"Like the guy who sat down at the piano in the famous Ogilvy ad - they all laughed. Trouble is, I never got a chance to play them my concerto, because now that the Wii is a huge success, my friends can't remember the conversation.
History lesson, part I
So, it brings me great pleasure to provide some proof of something I did invent. If it's not Wii Fit, it's the cover of one of the great punk-rock albums and album covers of all time - The Minutemen's Double Nickels on the Dime.
I submit for your consideration:
1. Kenton Larsen, Shaftesbury High School yearbook, 1985
2. The Minutemen, Double Nickels on the Dime album, 1989

Now about my idea for Wii global bicycle tours...

I was the one who started the Adidas track suit craze in the early 90s.
No really, I did.
I know, it's embarrassing to admit now, but I rocked old school 70s style Adidas pants and shorts long before (and after) it was "cool." When I did it, it was bad ass and original.
Sadly I had to stop wearing Adidas all together once everyone else picked up on the 90s version, which I might add was gangsta and gross...
This is a true story.
That's a blog if I ever heard one!ReplyDelete
