Nefarious – Future Marketing Guru

Big Hero 6

From what I am hearing, this is going to be the movie of Holidays.

Of course, it has yet to open in Australia. Not until Boxing Day.

Which is driving many minions insane. But not me. Oh no.

This is a great bargaining tool for the spawnlings. All I did was tell them how much GeekMom loved it (and Corrina Lawson raved about it) and they were hooked.

What’s it about, mum?

Robots. And it’s animated.

Yeah!! We are seeing THAT!!

And here is where Nefarious shines, in all his 5 years of glorious infamy.

His teacher asked me about “some movie called Big Hero 6.”

So I told her what I told Nefarious.

And she said “That’s what he said. But somehow, he said it in a way that has convinced the ENTIRE class to see it in Boxing Day.”

That’s my boy. I reckon if he sets up a lemonade stand outside the cinema, he’d convince them to buy that too.

And I can’t think of many professions more evil than marketing.


Have you seen Big Hero 6? No spoilers!

Have you ever had someone else’s enthusiasm completely sell you on the product?

And the winner is… (Matthew Reilly’s Hover Car Racer)

You had us at “TARDIS technology”.

This ended up being one of the easiest decisions ever made.

Seriously though, big kudos to the participants. We had colour. We had speed. We even had a tribute to Daft Punk.

So we nabbed a few bonus EG trinkets to send out to each of the participants. Pictures will be shared on Facebook later this week.

But there is one winner – and these guys knew their audience.


Feast your eyes on … THE THUNDER TARD!!

It has TARDIS technology!

It is zippy!!

It harks back to Thunderbirds!!

And it has coffee!! A machine made for my own sleep-deprived soul…

Congratulations to the winners over in the Devereaux Bunch!! The spawnlings were totally won over as soon as you mentioned the TARDIS.

And a big congratulations and thank you to all the participants. I have plenty of new designs for my future hover car racers.
