Discussion in 'Classic Opie & Anthony General Discussion' started by DrunkInToronto, May 7, 2012.
They got their product on the front page of a web site read by their target demo, and O&A got some press too.
Carnies, the lot of them. Same for any corporate outrage, it's the new way to advertise.
O&A's core audience are guys who want to look at tits and pussy, how don't the gays get that?
Thats the long and short of it. They took it as insulting that this was the best Gary and Steve Pissholder could come up with.
The injuns should be way more offended than the queers. Ant crossed the line with his crude impression of a Native American.
Fuck the totem polesmokers.
I agree, when he called them buffalo fucking arrow chuckers he crossed the line.
Nice. There is no arguing with what you posted.
The blogger, Evan Mulvihill, claims he is going to be on an XM show tomorrow. I'd love to hear Lyle Chipperson call in.
They are complaining about the use of the word queer on a website called QUEERty.com. 'Nuff said.
I tend to zone out during the commercials or stop listening altogether but I still never heard the ad in the first place. Id like to hear them fuck with whatever show the mo is going to be on but that will never ever happen.
Dare to dream, though.
Not only are they sexually confused, they're befuddled about what kind of keyboard they're using.
Someone is posting as TurkFebruary and some moron is attacking AH over his Obama stance.
they were all drunk and weren't listening
I got why O&A (mostly Opie from what I recall) were put off somewhat by their channel being associated with gay lube, but I didn't get why they (opie) demanded it be pulled. Jim made a good point that they were good people to pair with because, like Steven Singer, they wouldn't bail if controversy arose. I've always been surprised at how low rent and "not mainstream" most of the ads and their companies were, and if this queerty guy wanted he could easily point out the hypocrisy in that.
In the end (GETIT!?) didn't they say that in a way Boy Butter was a good company for them because they wouldn't get all bitchy and threaten boycotts and bad publicity like a more mainstream company?
Oh, and reading the quote of the blog post...
Ugggggh. That's terrible, I'm sorry.
I haven't even checked the comments since I posted. Things might get ugly. If that happens, we may have another Greta swarm.
Opie's probably trying to get something going with the sales department. Forcing advertisers out so sales is compelled to find new ones, since sales won't work beyond selling what's required to whomever's willing to pay.
That, and the guys are still varying degrees of homophobic.
Edited: Just read the article and comments. I feel like the commentors aren't fake-outraged or calling for the firing of O&A. Even the article, while douchy at times, is just a guy's editorial of the situation. Turk February threw words in some guy's mouth who was being calm and reasonable about the whole matter. AH comes off well trying to explain it, and everyone sort of accepts it.
Maybe comments were deleted, or I missed something big, but this seems like a non issue?
Not in any significant way.
No, but in the way where being associated with a gay product like Boy Butter could make them uneasy enough to have it thrown off. How long have they gone on satellite without a legitimate advertiser? Have they ever made a push to have ads thrown off that could potentially defraud listeners?
Also, just saw that guy who called you twisted for accurately portraying Obama's position on gay marriage. Yikes
