The people in charge of the copy writing for the graphics slides on the Rampage broadcast hold creative writing degrees from Cheeseburger University.
Maybe add “Try not to fuckin’ die” to that list of gold.
I know this is old news to be bagging on the Red Bull broadcast of Rampage. And I know it’s better than not having the webcast at all. But it took someone some kind of effort to make the graphics overlays for the webcast. It would have taken 0.7% more effort to make them 1000% less shitty. Alternatively, could have just saved the effort completely and not bothered.
Sometimes the only way out of the crevasse is down. Embrace the futility of trying to write something profound about a sports event of this nature and just go with the sarcasm route.
“What Andreu needs to do to win again: Not sleep with the judges’ significant others, Do stuff that’s more bigger than everyone else done did, Be willing to die for your entertainment- ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!”
Considering they missed switching to the right camera for about half the action for the first runs, maybe they could have cut their tech director’s rate by a few hundred bucks and used that to pay an actual writer. Surely there are mountain bikers out there with english degrees that would have been pumped to contribute something better than what the Poet Laureate Of Beverages spewed out for the event.
