My Super Bowl Ad.

Posted by: Gene Gregory on 01/24/2013 - 1:11 PM

As you watch the Super Bowl on Feb. 3, be sure to look for my blimp in the sky over New Orleans. It only cost me $775, million smackeroos, and hopefully worth every smack.
This should make me ever more famouser as I dangle from the bottle of the blimp, painting a picture of the big game. What do you think ?

Big Idea, great outcome.

Lol Love it Gene!!

You need to toss out your biz cards as you go or have one of those ID thingies for the phones

so folks can buy your art as they set in their seat waiting for the bad play calls to be overturned. :)

Be sure to watch at half-time as I parachute on to the football field. Wearing a stretched canvas around my loins. Wait.... is the Super dome covered?
O' well...... so I land on top of it.

I can't think of a better use of $775 million dollars!

 

Posted by: Andee Photography on 01/24/2013 - 7:23 PM

Make sure you wear your cleats so you can crash through and

your lawyers phone number as you are going to need it! ;)

Hey Gene, isn't this related to a hot-air "discussion" in another thread? (^_^)

You DO realize that you owe me for the percentage of my exhaled air molecules that went in to filling your sky ad.

Look for the bill and nasty note in the mail.

 

Posted by: Gene Gregory on 01/25/2013 - 9:36 AM

Yes, I can see it now. Tens of people will see my blimp, look me up on the internet, and order my original paintings. I will be a hundredaire within a couple of weeks. One questions, should I through Smackeroos from the blimp? ( Smackeroos are tribal curency primarily used by a small country in the east.)

Now about the big game. Any predictions? I can tell you what the score will be before the game even starts. Zero to Zero, before it starts.

I think the Ravens will win, or it could be the 49'ers.

 

Posted by: Gene Gregory on 01/25/2013 - 12:13 PM

... and as the hot air disappated, the blimp headed back to earth.

Too funny, Gene!

 

Posted by: Jackie Mueller-Jones on 01/25/2013 - 12:22 PM

I hate football. I only watch for the ads......and your ad will definitely make it worthwhile. I am, as we speak, making popcorn and inviting all of my neighbors....excuse me, I am in Canada....neighbours to come and enjoy your blimpness. Keep a good grasp on that stretched canvas.....especially if you happen to land in the middle of a huddle.

 

Posted by: Gene Gregory on 01/25/2013 - 12:37 PM

My aim is to avoid the huddle, and try to land in the middle of a cheerleader. Watch for the wardrobe malfuction... it should be spectacular !

 

Posted by: Andee Photography on 01/25/2013 - 12:43 PM

One thing for sure it will not end in a tie! You can count on that! :)

 

Posted by: Gene Gregory on 01/25/2013 - 1:04 PM

No, I will not end in a tie... that is the first thing I will take off. - the loin canvas comes later.

 

Posted by: Jackie Mueller-Jones on 01/25/2013 - 6:27 PM

Perhaps you should tie the canvas on using the tie.....and then you will have the option of untie-ing the tie......after you land on the cheerleader, who may also have her own stretched canvas.

 

Posted by: Gene Gregory on 01/25/2013 - 7:16 PM

Jackie... You have given me a brilliant idea ! I think it would be interesting to paint a stretched canvas while the cheerleader is still wearing it. Hmmmm it might be worth looking into.

I hope to have enough hot air to inflate my blimp and I will be heading to New Orleans on Monday. I will be carrying a couple of inflatable girls with me. Unlike the imaginary girlfriend of Manti Te'o, at least my girls have some substance to them, - be it plastic or not.''


If any of the ladies here want a hand painted Loin Canvas, please let me know.

 

Posted by: Jackie Mueller-Jones on 01/25/2013 - 8:18 PM

What are the framed dimentions of the hand painted canvases you are referring to? I have some very large walls to cover....and I have some very tiny spaces to fill. It is very cold here where I live, so it is extemely difficult to think of anything in terms of large sizes.....

 

Posted by: John Crothers on 01/25/2013 - 10:44 PM

Does anyone remember the goofy movie with Terry Bradshaw and Robert Shaw where a blimp crashed into the Superbowl?

Is this part two of that movie?

 

Posted by: Liz Vernand on 01/25/2013 - 10:46 PM

Awesome!!

I had to laugh, the bag avatar, the saints that use to be the saints that aint. lol

 

Posted by: Michael Hoard on 01/26/2013 - 2:03 AM

Gene, I was actually sitting in the front yard on St. Charles Ave. and yep, the blimp passed over head and I saw your ad...its great how did you do it.. cheers Michael Hoard

 

Posted by: Michael Hoard on 01/26/2013 - 2:04 AM

Gene, you are good,

 

Posted by: Gene Gregory on 01/26/2013 - 10:04 AM

Jackie.... " I have some tiny places to fill " ? ..... Thats why I luv you so much. ; )
But everything is big in Texas, and thats all I have to say about that.

John....... No, hopefully it will not be part 2 of Black Sunday. My blimp is not filled with deadly gases. It just smells that way when Smud is on board.

Michael.......Thanks, but its not easy building a homemade blimp these days. And filling it up was real challange. You can't imagine the cost of the blow job.

Everyone please stand out in your yard next week and wave to every blimp you see......it just might be me !!! ; )

 

Posted by: Mary Ellen Mueller-Legault on 01/26/2013 - 10:16 AM

Gene,
The very idea of your 'blimp' deflating in public is extremely traumatic! Are you really prepared for the aftermath?Say, the fallout?

 

Posted by: Gene Gregory on 01/26/2013 - 12:48 PM

Mary Ellen........ Yes, if it stays up for 4 hours or more, I am instructed to call a specialist.

 

Posted by: Jackie Mueller-Jones on 01/26/2013 - 3:25 PM

A specialist???? NOT a cheerleader!

 

Posted by: Robert Kernodle on 01/26/2013 - 3:27 PM

Bravo, Gene G., for your brilliant entrepreneurial enticements.

A few suggestions:

(1) Use the canvas to tie up the cheerleader and paint directly onto her skin, in a combination painting/performance art/ pornography "collaboration". Forget the hoped-for wardrobe malfunction - instead, just make it happen intentionally, as a part of the promo. You just can't beat the revenue generating power of socially engineered malfunctions.

(2) In conjunction with this, stage a protest-art happening, where you load a paintbrush and walk around crossing out all the numbers on the football players uniforms. And sign your name, while you're at it. Big time name exposure for YOU, as well as the other exposure that we have alluded to.

(3) Offer half-off beer and peanuts to all future games, for the person who successfully posts the most pics of your antics to YouTube. Chances are, nobody will take you up on the offer, so you can avoid this expense entirely, instead just going through the motions to appear legitimate.

 

Posted by: Gene Gregory on 01/26/2013 - 5:27 PM

Jackie, ... The head cheerleader IS the specialist ! Thats why they call her the "head" cheerleader.


Thanks Robert... Half - off on everything is what I had in mind.... even the cheerleaders.

I think the stadium is covered, so it will have to be an inside job. After my blimp deflates, I will have to get through the ticket line with nothing on but a loin canvas and a smile. ( at least thats my goal )

Get your pop-corn ready.... Its going to a SUPER day !

 

Posted by: Gene Gregory on 01/26/2013 - 9:00 PM

make that a Super bowl of pop corn.....

 

Posted by: Mary Ellen Mueller-Legault on 01/27/2013 - 12:31 AM

what time will your blimp go up? Don't want to pop my corn too soon.

 

Posted by: Gene Gregory on 01/27/2013 - 3:05 PM

Mary Ellen....... It usually goes up when the head cheerleader walks onto the field.

Keep that corn a-popping ! ........ I hope we don't let off any foul gases that offend the fans.

 

Posted by: Gershwin Smud on 01/27/2013 - 8:23 PM

Watch for an attractive couple in the grandstands wearing bags on their heads. That would be me and Perverta.

Gene will probably kick-off before game time. ; )

 

Posted by: Gershwin Smud on 01/28/2013 - 11:00 AM

pooops

 

Posted by: Robert Kernodle on 01/28/2013 - 10:12 PM

This just gets better and better.

 

Posted by: Gene Gregory on 01/29/2013 - 11:27 AM

Super bowl on Sunday, and a Sea Cruise on Wednesday, Feb. 6. Yes, Captain Gregory is going on another cruise. Hopefully the casino will pay my way.

 

Posted by: Gene Gregory on 01/30/2013 - 2:54 PM

 

Posted by: Mary Ellen Mueller-Legault on 01/30/2013 - 3:15 PM

Just don't mix them up.

 

Posted by: Gene Gregory on 01/31/2013 - 10:27 AM

WHAT ! Mary Ellen ? Will they think that I am the blimp with my tail on fire ? That only happens when I O.D. on jalopinas.

Anyway........ the fire is out, and everything is back in control. Heading to New Orleans in my Inflated ship with lots of inflated cheerleaders.

Are you ready for some football........ chicken wings, ....... and cheerleaders?

See you at the big game !!!

 

Posted by: Gershwin Smud on 02/01/2013 - 9:21 AM

I see it now........ the blimp is high in the sky... heading to New Orleans! They ran off and left me, again. I'll get there by hook or crook. Look for me in the croud. I will be Raving !
