Nod It Up

When I say Hillshire you say Farm. Hillshire! Farm! Game Time!

Last Week's Winner

Last week, we played a new game, an as-yet-unnamed game, about coming up with a slogan for the fictitious product, "Ironic Twist". We had a bunch of answers, and now it's time for us to pick them apart.

Sam for the third straight week gave us lots of answers close to the deadline, and for the third straight week, we at the Pake Shlake Band cannot reward such procrastination. Well for the second straight week at least. Looks like we did let him win for his Lowell inspired headline. But there was no Lowell to save him today - he loses!

Tony, Nick and Joey had some good answers, but instead of giving us the ad slogan, they gave us more of a commercial sometimes with narrator included. So we don't think they should win. But maybe that could be another game. Come up with the best narrator to read the commercial of a fictitious product that you come up with. Kinda long name for a game.

Anyway, that leaves Lorenzo. Lorenzo should be thankful for the Process of Elimination. It made him our winner! (But his answer was good too.) Lorenzo said Ironic Twist is just plain tonic water, and the slogan is "Expecting something else? Why do you think we call it Ironic Twist?" Nice slogan, nice winner, nice process of elimination. Nice dog.

This Week's Game

And now we're going to keep the fun right where it belongs - in the advertising agency. The yet-to-be-named game has now taken upon a name of its own: Ad Geniuses. Or should we say the PSB Original Game Ad Geniuses? It's not a PSB Original until we say PSB Original before it.

We're gonna make it a little easier for you though. This time - and maybe from now on - we'll give you the name of the fictitious product, and we'll also explain what it is. All you have to do is come up with the slogan.

Here's this week's fictitious product:
A Wink and a Nod - a board game targeted at horse lovers
