Gary Kemble has finally gone!

Here on Sohochav, we called for Kemble to go on October 14, 2007. Why did it take so long?

What are you doing the night before NYE?

Rest and rotation before the big night? Or having a few warm-up drinks?

Let's hear it for Ali Ikram

TV3 Reporter Ali Ikram’s musical take on the Tuhoe raids tells us a few things.
Akram sang (in the loosest possible sense) a parody of the Tuhoe raids to the tune of “Let’s hear it for the boy”

Well we know now that;
A) in the job interview at TV3 he was not asked to sing.
B) This is another example of ‘dumbing down the media’
C) This attempt at karaoke belittles serious news and events
D) All of the above.

Akram’s singing really is truly, truly appalling. It is hoped that he has never sung in public before and will never do so again.

Simon Cowell of American Idol fame has apparently heard the clip on YouTube and for the first time he can remember was absolutely speechless.

V for viral

Well Frucor has got a new viral campaign. It is centered on asking customers what they would do with $100K and a pallet of V. The campaign is called the people's republic of V.

A profile has been created on social-networking site Bebo. I think it misses the mark for a few reasons.

Firstly, when you get a membership tag you are offered 2x 250ml cans of V for $5.50 from participating service stations - hardly a bargain when they are $2.20 at the local diary.

The other thing is the disjointed nature of the campaign - when you have a 'conversation' - with your audience and ask them what they'd do with $100K and a pallet of V, then you'd better be prepared for some silly ideas.

Here's my silly idea. Hmmm, pallet of V and $100K? Well I'd try to sell it. (Seems Frucor is trying to sell at least a pallet too) as for the money? Well maybe $100K worth of advertising and PR...

Gary Kemble must go!

The Kiwis 58 - 0 defeat to the Kangaroos was the worst in our history.

Sunrise II

Well we've heard that James Coleman is on the box at breakfast time to "attract younger viewers" really? I mean, he must be on the verge of 40. Mean while, across town on that other breakfast show, Pippa Wetzel (who must actually be at least a decade younger than Coleman) isn't so much attracting a younger demographic, as more of a male based one...
