September 8, 2008 - Narcissism is Necessary

Appearing on The Firm, NTV7.

I thought I was going for a food review but found myself in the middle of a reality show. It was not the best experience in the world because the media event was truly, as they said in the show, a media disaster.

What they didn’t reveal was that I waited for almost 2 hours in the sweltering heat, there was nobody manning the media registration counter and all I got was a glass of soft drink.

Also, I disagree with the Bubba Gump’s boss that media event “cannot start with only 3 medias as it defeats the whole purpose of media event”. Well, you don’t ever punish medias with more waiting, especially not when they’ve been punctual and professional. What the team should have done was to think up of other micro events to occupy the punctual medias but obviously, they failed to do that.

The show didn’t really change much of what actually transpired but they did cut out the best bit of the event:

The team made all the medias gave out their date of births (big humongous no no) and then, at the end of the event…they pulled a TGIF on one of us who happened to be celebrating birthday in that month (second big humongous no no). It was one of the scariest and funniest thing I’ve ever witnessed. Poor fella was made to stand on a chair surrounded by a singing, cheering mob, hahaha.

If you’ve watched the video and spotted me, well obviously I was only getting screen times due to my various facial interpretations of what-the-fuck-is-going-on-here.

For the whole show check out this link.
