The HBO office as cool as it was; was definately not as cool as watching Flight of the Conchords, one of the first few people in Singapore to catch the 2nd and 3rd Episodes of my favourite thing to come out of New Zealand since … well something Kiwi. The TV shows are a delight at half an hour long and the humour is classically off the wall with a Conchords’ song interspersed into one of their episodes. Their exploits are realistic to some extent but you don’t really have groupies trying to get you in a human sandwich very often. Or your camera phone actually being a film camera being stuck onto the back of a cellphone. These and all such classic elements of Conchord humour really makes this show a rare but awesome find.
A few words about HBO: This first little outreach to bloggers have truly made me optimistic about the future of making use of social media to reach out to your consumers. Because you’re finding the consummate consumers, Mr. Jane Doe and Tom Dick Harry distilled into a media consuming and generally attentive audience. These people will also have their OWN audiences and not surprisingly will spread the good word about your product. I’m just really happy that I’ve had a chance to share an evening with this wonderful group of enthusiastic professionals who really do take pride and joy at doing what they do, and doing it well. Now its time for other companies to realise that this is the way you should be treating your customers! Thanks HBO for making this an Amazing night for us all!
