A Former MTV Executive Pitched THESE Crazy Ideas About Spiderman To Sony!
For some reason, we don’t buy that Peter Parker would be getting the club to go up on a Tuesday, or any other day of the week for that matter.
Sorry but I turn down this idea. Turn down for what reason? Well, it’s a pretty bad idea, that’s why.
Nick Shore, a former MTV executive who is now currently working on their Astronauts Wanted: No Experience Necessary, shot ex-Sony head Amy Pascal an email while mid-flight on a plane (no word yet as to whether Nyquil was involved) about his thoughts about Spiderman.
If Nick had his druthers, Spidey would be into doing Tough Mudders, be a humble bragger, would be swinging with his web to some EDM, and would definitely have his own Snapchat circle.
You know, real powerful plot points.
Here’s the email he sent, which was spotted by @DukeLovesYou.
Hey Amy – just a couple of rando thoughts from 35,000 LAX-JFK:
– A rising trend we see with Millennials are the really extreme forms of experiential exercise like Tough Mudder (a sort of filthy triathalon), the Color Run and even things like Hot Power Yoga, veganism etc. Millennials will often post “N.B.D.” on their social media after doing it , as in No Big Deal, also known as the “humble brag”…..wondering if Spidey could get into that in some way….he’s super athletic, bendy, strong, intense….and it’s all NBD to him, of course.
– EDM (electronic dance music) is the defining music for Millennials. Wondering if there’s an EDM angle somewhere with Spidey? His movements are beautiful, would be awesome with a killer DJ behind it
– Snapchat just launched a “story” functionality, which is sort of “day in the life of me” told in a series of snapchats that expire after 24 hours. It has a very VIP quality about it, since invitation only. Getting invited into Spidey’s Snapchat circle would be huge, and very buzzworthy and cool.
Wow, it’s like Spiderman gets me. What’s next? Spiderman starts dating Hannah Horvath on Girls?
