Speaker 1:
0:00
You're listening to steal this idea of the be podcast that remembers the north. Yes. Just steal it.
Speaker 2:
0:07
Still the same. Yes. Steal this idea. Steal this idea. Stop what you're doing right now. Steal this idea. Steal this. I can tell you right now to meet, to steal. Decide.
Speaker 1:
0:30
Can I steal [inaudible] yes. Steal this site. Hey, welcome back. Everyone steal this idea. Andre, it's good to have you back. Always glad to see you. Uh, we've had a great, great time thinking about this episode. I think coming off the backs of episode one, we were pretty pumped. Definitely. Um, and I think we got some even even better maybe, you know, fine tuned. Oh yeah, no, I, this is a well oiled machine by pod Castillo. Yeah, it's pretty big and most people take the whole season to get to this state. We're already there now. We're there. Um, and lots of great updates on the social front. Um, so we've got a Twitter handle now so you can follow us. Go steal this idea at, go steal this idea. Um, we'll have a website up as well. Go steal this idea.com, and I believe people can email in.
Speaker 1:
1:24
That's right. We have, um, an email address and email address is so easy to remember. It's idea at, go steal this idea.com easy. So easy. Send us your ideas. We'd love to talk about him. Perfect. Well I think we just hop into it. Let's do it. Um, so this episode we're going to start, we're gonna start off with some good idea, bad idea, nice coffee into my coffee, right. Um, for those who don't know, good idea, bad idea, these are ideas that have been marketed towards me and Andre and we just kind of quickly dissect them whether or not we think they're viable or not. Most of these are coming from Instagram, Facebook, things like that. And then we're going to move in to steal this idea. Last week I pitched Andre on Andrea's kitchen. If you haven't heard it, go back, listen to it. It's a great idea of multimillion dollar idea.
Speaker 1:
2:13
Easily. Uh, this, this episode, Andre is going to be pitching me. That's right. You want to give it a little sizzle of the name. Um, now, no, that'll give it away. I do have a great name, but I have a, I have a really good little workup script. Okay. And then a, and then we'll do a quick little speed round after that and then we'll wrap it up again. We're still the screenplay and then we'll send them home, send them home. Okay. A good idea about it. If you want to go first, you want me to go first? I would love to go first. So something about me is that I have always been a water bottle person. Even though I drink very little water. Like I love to go to target like at a couple of zany water bottles and take them home. So you stop in the, in the aisle cause it's like the end cap that's like a bunch of water bottles and they say stupid things and it's like, oh this is cute.
Speaker 1:
2:57
I can buy this. But I don't actually drink that much water. Sure. And I probably am my desk right now have six water bottles and I'll show you when we get back. Um, but anyway, so I, the other day on Instagram I got an ad for something that looked like a water bottle but it was Yay tall under is it's about maybe three feet that you're doing. I mean maybe two and a half feet in reality. Um, and like it basically, it kind of looks like a personal water cooler, which is what it is. It's basically, it's marketed as, it's so inconvenient to get up and get wider all the time. So just take to your desk this like kind of, it looks sleek, it looks aesthetically pleasing, but it's ultimately a water cooler for your desk that there's like a spigot with a spigot that you put your cup Vander and you fill up your cup and that way you don't have to get up.
Speaker 1:
3:41
And I think the marketing play is, it's so like it keeps you in the zone and getting wider, so inconvenient and every time you break your phone into that water cooler [inaudible] and I, I think it looks like they're going for kind of like the hydro flask play where it keeps your water really cold all day. And it's definitely a premium product and it doesn't have pricing yet. It's like a wait list situation but it looks like they're easily going to charge like four or $500 how? How thick is it? Is it like you might when you described that as like it like a skinny cylinder or is it like more like a it's a skinny cylinder definitely, but it would look odd on a desk. It would be like what is that like that isn't trapped way too tall. Yes, it would look strange. It is sleek.
Speaker 1:
4:23
It is sexy. It's like an apple looking. This comes out under a hundred dollars no, no chance at all because it is, it's the exact same play. It's obsessed with like keeps your water so cold for so long situation that I can't imagine that they're not going to try and go head to head with these like super ultra premium Yeti hydroflask competitors. It looks like the dumbest product ever. The value prop is the dumbest value prop or veterinarian, which is just like so obsessed with keeping you at your desk, which we also know is unhealthy. Right. It's just like sitting is the new smoking. You should be getting up to go to the water. We need to be getting walls. Actually. Uh, yeah, I, I, there's a a, there's a tiny iota of like, I don't totally hate the, some idea of like a localized water cooler, like a, but to me it's, it's not the fancy plates, the cheap play.
Speaker 1:
5:15
It's like spend $10 on like a water cooler that like happens to stay cool. Yeah. You know, like, yeah, I dunno if I would, who? I don't know who's buying this. I, I mean nobody, nobody that we know because anybody who's like in the grind going to water coolers, it's not like they're like, I need some fancy high end. Yeah. So I'm looking at the site now and it's like the lower size is 70 ounces, which is like you can get a 64 ounce cup, I'm pretty sure at like seven 11 which would not be that much. It's pretty, it's a big cut, right? Yeah. But now out of the wrong possibility, but the larger size is 110 ounces. It's like Yay high. It's, it's a tall, sleek looking machine. And some value props are like fits on table.
Speaker 1:
6:00
No kidding. Literally crazy. Alright, so your ego's bad idea on this one. I'm going to go with bad idea, but what actually kind of changed my mind is there's this shot on the website of a guy who has his personal water cooler on his nightstand. Oh. And that is a good idea. So I think pivot and actually just build it into a nightstand, build a little cute little that slots in and slots out and you go and you fill it up and you bring it back and you, I don't hate the idea of a night, even if it's like plugs in, if it plugged in and kept my whole water cool in the middle of the night. Yeah. Cause that'll happen. I'll, I'll get, I'll get a nice cold glass of water and they'll wait to the night. All the ice lukewarm forms. It's very unsatisfying. Yeah. And it doesn't even have to be that much liquid.
Speaker 1:
6:42
It just has to be. Yeah. I think this is a nightstand play actually. It's, we're gonna send him an email. I you get a pivot, pivot into the nights in here. Get this on Medicare. Um, okay, so I got one here that's kind of similar in some ways. Um, I don't know if you've seen it, if you've been, uh, pitched a device called molecule now, so molecule spelled m o, l e K, u l e is a, uh, not an air freshener, but a, um, oh, what's weird is your thing looks really similar to my thing, but completely different purposes. Yes. So this is a, a, an air purifier. But when you think of air purifiers right now, they're kind of, they look like little mini fans, kind of. They're not the most aesthetically pleasing war's molecule is like, this looks like it's from Apple's like assembly line.
Speaker 1:
7:34
Literally. I cannot say this enough. Our products look identical. They're like these sleek aluminum col columns with like a cute little leather strap on the top, the same, which is a very strange, so what you're saying is maybe these are the same, they're being sourced from the same place I'm saying is aluminum columns are hot right now in, yeah. Like, if I was a Chinese manufacturer, I'd just be producing objects that look like this sticking whatever component on the inside they want. So, so I'm a little torn on this because in one sense I get it. Like air purifiers are not, they look dumb. If I see an air prefer especially an expensive one in someone's house, I'm like, why do you, why do you need that? Or do you, do you have SARS? Like what's what's going on here? Um, so having like a a, you know, just, I care about air quality, I want to have a nice fresh, you know, air in my house.
Speaker 1:
8:25
I get it. The problem is when you, if you were to say like, oh, I want an air purifier, like what, what would you say? Like a regular one would cost you if you had to guess how? I think an air purifier, I would only pay $200 200 maybe two 50 maybe three 50 at the high random optional product that doesn't necessarily have any actual tangible effect on my life. Really hard to justify more than that. So $800 for the molecule, which is sexy. It is the apple of their purified, his yaffle veer prefers. But that to me is like a step beyond that. Like, I don't know if there's enough of a market or maybe that's just one of those like, uh, you know, I'm a rich person so I just get rich person things and I put in my house and it's just in every parade of homes, every staging you put a molecule and they're like, maybe there's a, maybe they found a suite and each niche there.
Speaker 1:
9:16
I know I don't, where I struggle is I think I almost see an air purifier. It's like a pseudo medical device. Right. And with pseudo medical devices and medical devices, I'm not willing to go to like the random Instagram advertiser. So I am more likely to trust like a GE air purifier or a Dyson air purifier. Right. For the same price. Then I am like random fly by night, Alibaba, sorcerers, you know what I mean? Oh, how long your company's been around one full year. Yeah. It's like you haven't had the benefit of years of research. Yeah. And if I'm going to pay $800 for an air purifier, it's gonna need to be like the most medically proven air purifier. Liver, not, not my thing. Uh, should we move on or do you wanna do you wanna do another one of these? Um, I have another, let's do another one quick.
Speaker 1:
10:07
I think this one could be fast and maybe hot take really sure is I keep getting ads. Obviously we're in the era where humanity is coming around on single use. Anything being bad. Sure. What I'm getting a lot of right now is mouthwash capsules that are not liquidated yet that you like throw in a glass and you like mix it up. [inaudible] mouthwash Alka Seltzer. Yeah. Like very similar. Completely an alcohol free mouthwash that you kind of like mix yourself. Interesting. I cannot get through this idea. I think that um, one, it sounds like it adds a whole extra step to something that's not actually that wasteful. Like I probably go through, I use mouthwash pretty regularly. Go through like maybe one bottle every two months. Yeah, let it might be conservative. I'm like very, yeah. Like maybe a month, like if you're, yeah, if you're really, if you have a big family or something like that.
Speaker 1:
11:01
But I so I don't think it eliminates that much plastic. Um, yeah. Cause Cause I'll get the double pack at Costco and just get that last, that's like a healthy amount while exactly. I like the idea of taking something like that and like if they provided mouthwash and something else and something else like throwing it in like a little toilet tree. Like even like a travel, like taking, which that's a good point. Like if I could have a mouthwash and some floss picks and like a travel thing, little, you know, pouch there that I can get them worth that I'm halfway there. I think also, I guess my other question is when you buy mouthwash, do you buy alcohol free? Uh, I need the burn about alcoholic items. I appreciate the burn as well. I don't really, I kind of get whatever's cheapest. Generally the, the biggest mistake is Listerine.
Speaker 1:
11:52
Like the original regular Listerine. I live that is like talking to the amber color or the blue color. Amber. Yeah. I love amber. Oh man, that is like gasoline. I can barely do that. That's the whole point is I want it to, I want it to feel like I'm going to vomit because that's how I know it's working. Uh, yeah, I think, I think there's something there. Um, I don't think it's quite there yet. It's a subscription model like they send you. Yeah, I think so. Let's every everything on install. Hard pass on that. Um, okay. My next one here is, um, I actually thought this was interesting to me. It's surprising. This is the first time I've seen this. Um, so they're big right now in the health scene. It's protein, everything's got protein, right? I remember seeing a candy bar, a baby Ruth, it says four grams of protein.
Speaker 1:
12:38
What a selling point. That's just peanuts. There's nothing special now, but it's got four grams. So yeah, there's some health value to this. Um, so this was essentially a cheese puffs, but like balls, like the cheese puffs, protein puffs, disgusting. So all I can think is the chalky disgusting. 100% in your mouth. Definitely not a product that I like. Oh gotta give me some protein pups. Nope. But I could see somebody who like I understand the idea of like, oh I want to get some protein, but like most protein is in liquid form. It's like a protein drink or it's like a gross bar. Whereas like sometimes you really just want like a snacky chip type of thing. And so I could see someone being like as an alternative to just coating your mouth with dry. Disgusting. Now it's a now for me I think.
Speaker 1:
13:26
I think, I think people I, I'm gonna say even though I wouldn't get some, I think people will buy it. I think it's a, I think it's a, it's a clever play and we'll buy it cause they'd go to Costco and they're just like, protein Partain let's get like protein water. Like when that first came out I was like, oh that's clever. Like yeah, it's just like somewhat healthier water. Yeah, it's enriched. And in that way, like people go down the grocery aisle and they look at the options, they pick the hottest health term and then they pick that option. That's true. We'll say the same thing. Um, all right. Let's, uh, I think that wraps it up for good idea. Bad idea. Okay. Should we move to the main event? Let's do it. I'm going to, I'm going to get in my, my consumer mode here.
Speaker 1:
14:05
I'm just about to pitch me on something. Mantel theater. So picture this. It's like a color run or a mud. Ryan, it's coming through your city. Ooh, okay. It's no run. It's bungee jumping. Oh, the city jump rolls into your town rents a huge crane. Hang some streamers off of that. A huge banner or something like that. City jump. I think the city jump because I think that this is not a play. It's where you roll it out to like Thanksgiving point or whatever. Yeah. It's an event that comes to your town. The way that the color run comes to your town. Got It. We're here for six days. So this isn't just, it sounds like this is more than just the crane. It sounds like this. This is, I think, here's the thing is if I, I can't put a crane up all year in a metropolitan area.
Speaker 1:
14:49
Not Possible. Right. I don't see the play working in a farm field where it's pointless. Sure. I want it in the city. I want you literally eye level with skyscrapers. I don't think it's ever done. I really don't think it's that ridiculous as you say, cause cause I think, I think if you say, oh, like we just put up a pop up or you know, yeah, let's just do a bunch of jumping out in West valley or out in some area, then you got, it's like I've got to keep the singing big busy all year round. Right. But if you, you build a pipe towards it and it's like, it's like a carnival exactly three day. Right. And I think really the reason that I say like a color run or a mud run is kind of like in the same vein of, you know, a little more athletic, a little more thrill seeking, a little more interior, physical activity.
Speaker 1:
15:38
Um, but also with that element of like, there's a timeliness to it. They come during a certain period. You either do it or you don't. And I think, um, I think that really where I see the value is like for $50. You, you know, get on a crane. I don't know how you get up car. I think there's an elevator involved or something like that. And her been on a crane. That's why I'm not actually doing this idea. It's just steel. No, no, no. We have no hope. Um, for $50 or so you'd get up on a crane, you the shirt, you got a shirt, you get some pictures. Sure. Um, and I think that the social media via reality, astro is huge because I'm picturing myself, I work at like the wells Fargo building. I'm on floor 15 one day, like a neon colored crane rolls in and people start bungee jumping off the lights flashing like, and it's only there for a couple days, but I'm gonna call him up.
Speaker 1:
16:30
I'm going to get my whole team up there. We're going to do a fun event as some story wristbands and say, I conquered the city jumper. So exactly like I jumped from 20,000 or not. Yeah. And then six days later they're at least your city or whatever, it goes onto the next one, and then you're like, okay, I gotta get it next year. Right. And you kind of get that hype of like moving place to place to place. It does. Also, you Caplin media virality builds the whole time. Like checking like, oh, they're going to be in Spokane in six months. I got to get my ticket now. And what, what, where you can capitalize this on, you know, if you just set up shop here in Utah half the year, you can't really operate it. No. Where's now every month. Okay, it's July. Well, I'm not going to go to Arizona.
Speaker 1:
17:08
No, I'm going to go to Michigan, a out of Michigan totally. And that it's December, I'm going to go to Orlando and I got, I know in Orlando for like a month. Right. So I think there's, there's a huge market here. And I'll say to back up the, the context of how I came up with this idea, Scott and I were talking the other day at a meal of some sort or something about how there's really nowhere good to Bungee jump in Utah. And it's like you think about bungee jumping, you generally need like a bridge or a canyon of some sort or something to bunch up off of. It's like why I can put something really tall anywhere. So I think a crane is the perfect thing. Totally. I'm sure like to kind of get ahead of my own roadblocks. Uh, definitely there are some like legal issues like calcium facility, bungee jump off of a cream.
Speaker 1:
17:51
Well the, the other question is like a, a volume thing. Like how many people can you jump in a day? Don't you think? A lot. So you gotta think the average. Okay. So yeah, so you'd have to bring up like a group of 10 at a time or something. Yeah, the jump off and then they go down there, you and hook them. You got to like pull the thing back up. I mean it's like a five to 10 minute process per jump. Not too bad. No, it's not too bad. And I see the price point at this being like 50 bucks and I love the idea of like you get the shirt, you pre sign up for you like hey look to get the whole family for 90 bucks. Right. You know, you know, or whatever. Um, and I think you can build a groundswell at the base of the crane where you say there's also real estate.
Speaker 1:
18:34
Like we ran this real estate and now you're putting food trucks out there. Now Your Brown like carnival games out there, red bull sponsors. Hopefully the red bull drop are safe and now you, and now you're also getting a side revenue of like vendors paying again, color run. Like it's like color. Colorado isn't just color line, it's them and a bunch of vendors and like all this other peripheral things. I like it. It's really not a bad idea. And I think that if you were a bunch of jump operator now yeah. And you're like, this is my brother in law. He puts on triathlons and stuff. Exactly. You're an extreme event operator. Now you understand the liability issue. You understand how to get these people into your world. The logistics of like this is a great add on. Yeah, and it'd be a fun like attempt like let's see if this works.
Speaker 1:
19:15
You know, like you could prove the model out really quickly of like, oh, like people love this. Totally. If, if right now I got an ad that said bungee jump in Salt Lake for 50 bucks this weekend, I would be so interested. I'd be like, fuck yeah, 50 bucks, you know, I've never done it before. Can Be fine. I think that would fill up really quick. Not the worst idea. Yeah. I think, I think insurance liability, I mean, yeah, you'd have to will a city email. I used to do this. I don't know. I mean I've seen crane bungee jumping before in a city in a city. Rarely granted, I think it was in Mexico, so maybe this is [inaudible]. I think it was in Cancun, but I'm sure. Yeah, I think there's got to be, you know, helpful city with officer bridge. Yeah. Which is also publicly owned architecture.
Speaker 1:
20:08
Why not? I'm trying to think if there's any other like, yeah, I mean it's another one of the things, it's like, like any one of these things like you'd have to be like pretty all in and going into it. Like from nothing. You'd have to build up a network much take a crane costs. Because in my world, because of my original plan was you go to a city, you rent a crane because when we can rent a crane anywhere for some of the pain, that's probably what construction, I don't think construction companies, they all own hundreds of cranes. So I think you can rent a crane. Um, but my real idea is like you own the crane, you paint a crazy. Yeah. Do some wild stuff on it. Like hang, ride some, all this stuff. And that's like, that's the major operating cost is that you have a crane top rate.
Speaker 1:
20:49
Yeah. The rest is like staff. And I think, I wonder though, if you found the right, there's somebody out there who owns a crane who could get on board with this, that you make them apart, you know, like it's just a screaming deal. Maybe if you're in on it, you know. Totally. So I think, I think that that's going to be your biggest hurdle is like figuring out the crane and the liabilities. But other than that, right. I'm impressed Andre, if you already own a crane, this is a great, you've just stumbled on a gold mine. Yes, exactly. A perfect, I think, yeah, I'm, I'm sold. Um, I was, I was trying to think of a good, like, uh, like on the extra Guac we call our listeners Glaukos we're going to have to workshop that like ideologues. Uh, now we're gonna definitely do how that uh, yeah, sending your suggestions.
Speaker 1:
21:37
Yeah, we'd love to hear, uh, again, go still this idea.com is the website at go steal this idea of Twitter or email. It's uh, uh, it's, it's me or contact or, yeah, I think, I think the one you should use this idea at Gusta this idea, that idea. I go still say that come for feedback or if you have a good idea he wants to talk about yet. Let's do a little speed round here. I'm stopping you know, lots of stuff and going on in the world at large. I'd love to see what, you know, thumbs up, thumbs down, good idea, bad idea and what's going on here. Love it. What you got for us, this, and I already discussed this but I ran to get it on this podcast as well, which is, oh wake the new Netflix cam show man. Our contestants stay up for 24 hours counting quarters, play a series of games and then are tested on just how accurately they were able to countless quarters.
Speaker 1:
22:23
It's as bizarre as it sounds, but here's the thing. I've watched like six episodes. You are, you have you swung back. It's super stupid. It's dumb. Sharla, it's hard to follow the idea. The idea is that like the whole idea is like you have to be up for 24 hours. So like these people are like loopy and crazy losing their coordination but also a little bit over playing it like hamming it up. Like, Oh, I'm so tired this morning and it's like I've had an overnighter in my life. I'm fairly confident in it. It doesn't cause what they seem to act like it does. Also, some of it's like counting quarters. It's like I don't want to watch, I even find watching someone in 10 seconds answer a trivia question or spin a wheel. I'm not okay watching you for five minutes. Count dimes. It's bad.
Speaker 1:
23:06
And I think one of my major complaints is it's one of those like bait and switch game shows where it's like $1 million and you think that you're driving to this conclusion of the person wins a million. Uh, but then it's like, actually you want $1 million, only if you clear like two additional hurdles at the end, which I think chance to win a million because you have a chance to win $1 million, which is really annoying. You don't get that payoff that you really want to see at the end of the show. Yeah. This is very black mirror to me. Uh, it is, it's like how much are you willing to torture your body for money? Uh, so yeah, that sounds like two bad ideas from you and I. Yes. Um, Harry Potter Wizards Unite, uh, for those of you who know who potter whizzes United is like kind of the next Pokemon go.
Speaker 1:
23:49
Yeah. Um, so instead of catching Pokemon, it's your kind of defeating dark arts wizards and saving heroes. And so I haven't played it yet, but I've been following the tale of, it's released pretty closely. And I think what really confuses me is how could this ever compare to the phenomenon of Pokemon go? Because that was like a literally crazy thing that I would be surprised if I witnessed again. Totally. Which is just like everybody's playing it. You go out to the park at night and it's like there are people everywhere playing this game. I don't see that happening again. And I don't see how wizards unite could ever be more than just like rescanned Pokemon go with a different IP. That's a cash grab because people love Harry Potter right now. I also just think that like the, the prep, so Pokemon go worked because this idea of like, oh, there's a finite amount, I gotta catch them all.
Speaker 1:
24:38
And like that's the whole thesis of Pokemon is like this central idea of like catching these things totally. Whereas Harry Potter, like I don't care necessarily to like save Ginny weasley from a dementor. I mean Ginny weasley was already saved. Yeah. It's just, it's, so, I find the world to be fascinating and I, and I liked the idea of like having it something where I'm out and about and I'm pretending like I'm a wizard and I'm using magic. I just, I think they, I think they could have, I would've rather than an iteration of like, hey, you're not catching things, you are experimenting with match or you're coming up with new magic. I Dunno. Like I just feel like different formula might've been more interesting. Yeah. So I'll say a Soso idea. I mean smart, smart play, but yeah, so mine is the resurgence of doll horror films I mentioned here.
Speaker 1:
25:30
So there are two out right now. There's the new checky movie, which I haven't seen and probably won't see. And there's a new Annabel movie, which is a really surprisingly large franchise. I think there's three or four movies in the franchise now that all surround this doll with some crazy Laura and backstory. Not to mention I've seen toy story for this. I have, there's no work. I'm into toys. I mean there kind of is really that centers around a doll that's kind of creepy. And even those like ventriloquists like really I have not seen it as a whole sequence, like a very long what, what happened all of a sudden doll horror is, I don't know that it was definitely out for awhile. Right. Chucky happened whenever it happened last and then it felt like we didn't have a dom movie for a really long time.
Speaker 1:
26:12
I mean we like hard serial killers and crazy people. Well now we're back into killer clowns are back with Ed. I wonder if I'm worried if he went from cause cause yeah, it went from like that to like haunted places like Blair witch. Yup. You know, haunted caves hunted stuff into the haunted homes, paranormal activity. Right. Uh, the insidious and then into like haunted kids. Like my child is possessed. The ring right here for a categorical knowledge of horror films. I'm just, I'm, I'm looking back at like, oh, you know, like maybe it's just the natural progression of like we've went from kids and now we're down back to dolls and then we go to haunted aunts. Like, where do we go? I too. I wonder if now it's gonna go back to I could see a research. I have to imagine that people get tired of dolls and they want, yeah, I bet if we were to go to a next horror movie trying to, it would be something completely different.
Speaker 1:
27:07
Yeah. Just something unexpected. A, yeah. I think it's strange. I [inaudible] for it. I think it's played off pretty well. Uh, it's, Oh, I'm, it's toy stories. Let's say. Sorry. It's going to be a good movie. I'm not a huge horror guy in general. You don't see yourself seeing either. Anabel very unlikely. As I could maybe see it. You should kind of give the antibiotics a shot. They're really not bad. It's interesting. What I like in a horror film is not super jumps scary, but with a good, interesting backstory. Well, I liked to meet one of the best horror movies is the ring because it's not all about jumps. It's like an eeriness. Exactly. That's like the best. That's what we all want. That is what we want. Right? We got it with us last year. Yes, exactly. It's just eerie. It's creepy and weird, but not jumps scary like throwing popcorn in the aisle kind of situation.
Speaker 1:
27:55
Um, I got one more here. Um, so I saw this tweet and the, the, the tweet caption said, I'll give you $100,000 if you can guess who these spy, who the company putting on this ad is, and I'm going to send it to you. Okay. It is, you know how like sometimes you'll have some, some commercial and it's like very unrelated. And at the very end it's like turn to sell. Exactly. So it's one of these where like, it starts out with this kid and he's a baby and he's looking around. It's very like visceral. He's scratching stuff and he's smelling things and then grows up. It gets a little older and he's running outside. He falls in the mud and he gets a little older and he says, Timmy, he's on his bike and he's falls and it gets a little older. And then he, she's a girl and they kiss and it gets a little older and like kind of like start to get serious a little bit.
Speaker 1:
28:46
Like he, uh, like humor comes trials like his parents' divorce, he gets really upset. He shaves his head. All of a sudden I'm thinking it's just like a logic music video. Like he's about to go into like white supremacy. Like literally that's what I thought. And then, and then now he's overseas, he's traveling and he's rediscovering himself that Dah, Dah, Dah. And at the very end, this very serious thing. If you were to take a guess, pick any company in the world, why would you guess I mutual life insurance. Even that one's like, okay, sure. Yeah, he walks into a subway and it's a commercial person play. That's how it ends. A genius. I mean, I have to say genius, right? Which is that if you're a subway, it's pretty hard to tap into the same kind of marketing that a lot of these companies are able to tap into.
Speaker 1:
29:42
Um, like real serious kind of marketing. So subway just said, yeah, we're just gonna make a real serious commercial and then we're going to have to walk into a subway at the end and it's like three minutes long. It's not even like just a good idea. I told the somebody who's like, you know what that was, that was, that was somebody in like a product who's like this. They don't want to work for subway but they really want, they're like portfolio out there. So this is an app for them. And if there's someone else who's going to pick that guy up, I think it's genius. And this is the first time I've thought about subway and so long as your ultimate, so, uh, all right. Do we want to just wrap up with still the screenplay? Sure. Um, or you want to go? You want me to go?
Speaker 1:
30:23
I can go or you can go. I'll go. I have a quick one here cause we're right about that mark here. Let's do it. I don't have this totally fleshed out yet, but this is a movie. I think this would be, it could be a TV show. I haven't decided yet. So it has to do with aliens. When you think about anything alien movie or TV show, there's often lots of tropes you get right. It's either aliens are this kind of evil, there are, you know, they are kind of bug like and their, you know, whatever. Right? Yeah. So, so in this story, you start with aliens that are humanoid, right? Uh, and they, you see them conquer this other planet in the galaxy just with ease. And they are like moving. They take her the resources and they're like, all right, onto the next plan, right?
Speaker 1:
31:12
And then they pull up to earth and they're like, this is the next plan. We're going to rock these guys. And then their entire civilization comes down. And what they don't realize is that like this other planet, they destroyed the guns they used. It was just basically like a squirt gun, but to them it was destructive. To us it's like nothing. So this whole alien civilization comes down like Independence Day, but their firepower is like nothing. Right? It's a, it's a fart in the wind. Right, right. And then, and so we just like ran with that. So yeah. So, so then so like we disable them but now we have like a, like a hundred thousand alien refugees who thought they were going to destroy this. I like I, there's a good like fish out of water situation here of like humans and aliens living together in a very weird unexpected circumstance.
Speaker 1:
31:57
Yeah. Right. And so that get to it, they have to like kind of, yeah, it's definitely fish out of water. Definitely a comedy dance. Definitely comedy for sure. But it's like kind of [inaudible] it kind of flips some tropes on its head of like they thought they could destroy us but they couldn't and they're like, maybe they help each other over time, like solve problems or whatever. But like you have this really funny, there's a core controversy which is like, they'll say aliens, they don't understand what it's like here. And he, those humans that don't understand what it's like to be an alien and exactly different. But we all have to live. We all live in waltz. That's the problems they're dealing with. And like, do they like where do they, where do you put 100,000 refugees that have no homeland? Right. Like that's a funny, it's a funny concept of funny, like I guess spooking we'll put some people here, we'll put some people there, like just commentary there.
Speaker 1:
32:42
Anyway, I think that there's a funny premise there. Somebody could make a good script out of that. I think that there is a good premise. It would be a fun maybe like web of mini series. Sure. Yeah. Yeah. Or the biggest franchise ever. I don't know. Who knows? Um, so sky came into this and he was like my screenplay, I, I've kind of given it a little bit of thought. Not that much. I'm given far less to mine, which is that I just think it's time for the resurgence of like the high school club show. Uh, I was obviously a grateful, well, or it could be a movie. I'm in I, my head is a TV show. Oh. Like, Oh shit. Like Glee. Yeah. But which is like an adult audience, but it's set in school. Sure. We've got a lot of clubs on offer, robotics, math, all these clubs.
Speaker 1:
33:24
Um, I think that it's time for another high school club. Shell feel good fun. So like, cause I know like AP bio kind of tried and I was tempted to watch AP bio and I've heard it's like shit. Like people want to keep it. Yeah. You know, like at first. So there's hope for the category then. Yeah. Um, but, but I think, I think potentially like the reason glee works so well is like, I think there's enough people who like, got it. They're like, oh yeah, there's maybe not, maybe AP bio is not like not as accessible. Yeah. Yeah. I think it has to be like kind of a headlining club and it's like, oh, these zany kids. I remember the Zany band kids even even just like a, even a high school focus show where the central characters, the clubs are like the at the forefront, not just at the, you know, it's not just like, oh, the popular girl or whatever.
Speaker 1:
34:10
It's like, it's a lot more to do with, yeah. The chess club and the club. And like how, how the politics of those cloud leadership yeah. As a club. But it's an organization in high school. Like how that, yeah, I think there's, yeah, I think it's time. Maybe AP bio already has stolen this thunder and shit to watch it, but it feels like glee cat over there a long time ago and it doesn't feel like anybody has really hit the high school TV show for adults 40 cents and I'm ready for it. I'm just ready for it. And that's big. I'm ready for it. The thousands of people just like me. If you're listening to Hollywood, get on it. Yup. By the sooner wrap it up for the show. Um, next week I've got a good idea in the tank. I'm going to win over on drag and we can't wait. We got to, you know, we're both on a winning streak right now. One of us will lose soon here. Um, and yeah, if, if anybody out there catches one of these ideas in the wild, send it in. I would love to know if, if somebody that happens, it happens even if they didn't hear it from us. But that we kind of predicted it to happen, then always feels good. Yeah. Um, yeah. I hit us up on social and emails and we'll catch you guys in the next one.
