Trouble in the Writers' Room at 'Rescue 911'

"There's trouble on the set of rescue 9-1-1 and it's such a bullshit situation, but this is the state of Hollywood now. Who the hell wants to be in Hollywood with all this shit? So last April, station 19 8 O episode that was hailed as one of the most powerful reflections of George Floyd's murder on television. It was written by an executive producer showrunner named Christa vernoff and some other people on the show's writing stuff contributed as well. More than a year later, an incident involving the depiction of racism on the page has left the writing team of the show reeling. It's got nothing to do with the writers recent draft of an outline. It has to do with what they hand it in. On the upcoming season 6 episode that included numerous uses of a racial slur by a racist character right away the N word pops up, right? So I'm hearing the script was assigned to a white writer who can white people write what bothers blacks or Hispanics, I don't know, the word in question this white writer used was beaner. It's a word that they won't even write in articles and newspapers around they won't even write the R took me a while to figure out what the fuck they were talking about. Beaner. You know, Mexicans pick beans. Okay. Derogatory, I get it. If you're a Latino descent, meanwhile, it's a term that the comedian Carlos mencia who was half Mexican would use all the time in his act and on his Comedy Central show. Beaner. I'm not even worried saying that word. I can't stand saying the N word. I've used that word to make a point. I've used it if I'm talking about music that contains the word or a discussion that contains the word. There's no reason to say it now, so I won't. But if someone brings it up and a discussion, they're talking about it, then I'll talk about it this controversy. But Peter, it means nothing to me. Nothing. So the guy ends in the outline and it's met with shock. It's not with disbelief. When he shares it with the writers room,

Trevor Noah Made Anti-Semitic Jokes Prior to Hosting 'The Daily Show'

"Trevor Noah he's the host of the show calls himself a comedian daily shows on Comedy Central which means it's a comedy show and The Daily Show is in fact ruined comedy Blame Jon Stewart because he took himself so seriously Because he had these people who did you know them were more young people get their news from The Daily Show than from cable news well actually I'd be okay with that because cable news is a cesspool But that went to John Stuart's head and went to all these other comedian centers like oh we're important now We're important now So daily shows Trevor Noah yesterday He attacks Joe Rogan These are jokes that Joe Rogan made 11 years ago They're stupid their offensive nothing I would say That's not the point here The point is this is Trevor Noah going after Rogan for things he said 11 years ago Now let me take you back to 2015 when Trevor Noah was named the new host of The Daily Show Jokes that he made 6 years before in 2009 only 6 years before he got the gig I'm going to tell you some of his jokes Here's Trevor Noah's joke here Almost bumped a Jewish kid crossing the road He didn't look before crossing but I still would have felt so bad in my German car You know because Germans killing Jewish children is funny Some of these jokes I can't say on the air But they're almost all directed at Jewish people

Under apartheid which mandated separation of the races noah grew up during the apartheid and post apartheid errors. He became famous in south africa as a comic and tv personality and spent years traveling. The world doing standup. He talked terry in two thousand sixteen. So racial identity is a big part of your comedy. When you're doing stand up. Your father is white. Your mother is black. Your father is i. Think of swiss and german ancestry. Do i have that right. And your mother sosa casa. Thank you. I don't think i can do that. And i know your mother was jailed briefly. I hope in south africa. I assume four for opposing apartheid for doing some kind of dissenting action. Yes well the sensing action was being with a white person. Who was the white person your father. The s he was jailed so no no no. no white. people didn't get jailed for that. That was Why people were warned not to do it again. But then if you're a black person called fraternizing across country boundaries. Then then you'd be arrested but my mom. My mom opposed the system as a whole so. She never let that stand in her way. You know and i. I think i pick up a lot of i. I have a lot of my mom's demeanor is that she never even even when she told me the story. She wasn't an angry she just went. It's it's a stupid thing. And so i refuse to listen to. Its but she never came at it from a place of anger. If anything should defied it and she didn't she didn't give it the credibility that it was trying to create in in the world

"How it's delivered any of that stuff beyond guys just doing podcast. Which are not necessarily interviews like this. It's more just to comedians or three comedians. who will a big name comedians. Just hanging out just talking you know. Bsn for an hour or so. It's not an interview Where do you think the future of comedy lies. Well i try not to make predictions especially about the future. I think that it's hard to tell where it's gonna go. i think the zoom revolution has certainly given comedians. if nothing else another platform because the old platforms are gonna come back. you know. they're not they're not gone forever Comedy is everywhere. Now you know tiktok. We're getting comedy on youtube tiktok. Podcast you mentioned. I mean there's funny people all over the place because funny and people have to be funny. That's part of being human and now the whole world's a stage because of the internet some of the greatest talent is coming up through. You know through digital stuff as you know. I just you know i just marvel at at how the comedy business is growing more than anything else. And how more and more people see that as an opportunity to be in the entertainment business without too much trouble might and i think it's a lot like the music business in that now that anybody can sell published in or you know Put themselves out there. We see a lot more content. So it's a little harder to find the good stuff to go the goal. Is you have to dig a little deeper for the goal. But it's still there. I think a lot of people get caught up in that idea that Everything is garbage when it's too much stuff as brands out there comedy brands and which comedy central is one and they are placed to look if you want if you want to know where to comedy right. So i've had the url. Going across the balance seat is screen art bell writer dot com where you can get the book. And there's also a direct link to the amazon amazon and the other.

You know that that started so many comedy careers that that did so much innovative comedy that gave us things that wouldn't have otherwise as i said wouldn't have otherwise gotten on the air very proud of that it i. I can't imagine how could have gotten any better. I want to ask about because part of the title curious now because you left in ninety six again his book it says it's constant comedy How i started comedy central and lost my sense of humor now. Is that why you left. You lost your sense of humor. And how how did it make you lose your sense of humor. That's what i let me tell you what that subtitle is about. First of all. It's a memoir so i tell the story from my point of view. It's my recollections. And it's very personal. You know i turn myself inside out because that's what you have to do when you're writing memoir.

"Don't don't and if you see women being abused in any way you do something about it. That's what should have been done in those days. And to the extent that people were doing it or overdoing it in the case of bill cosby and it breaks my heart. Because i love the guy as did america but you know at some point you gotta say that's just wrong. You know absolutely affected other. People didn't didn't get caught making any less wrong now. I would say no. We're not arguing. We're in violent. Agreement right yeah But to your point about women in comedy. I think it's still. It's still perceived as an a boy's game all boys club type of thing although there are some great Female comedians out there. I talked to a lot of comedians. And almost exclusively guys. I would say exclusively guys and i'm trying to get some choose that i'm trying to move on i i asked any letterman. I haven't gotten a response yet. But i think a lot of guys still have this attitude. Mcdonald was still on top of comedy. He has this idea or perception. That women can't be funny and I could tell you last few times. I've been to comedy club. Climate goal was still open. the funniest acts on the bill. When we were there with my wife would women generally so. I think it's changed but the perception is still there and i want to get someone on the show but do you think it's changed enough that there are enough women making breakthroughs not sure that's the same perception. I mean right in the early nineties. I mean christopher hitchens wrote in one of his books That the reason women aren't funny is because they didn't have the obligation to be funny. That men have it and men need to be funny in order to attract women. He didn't say it quite that way. But i'm being genteel year so that was part of that conversation the other part. I think you know saturday night. Live belushi i mean. We had a head writer at at comedy. Central comedy channel rather. His name is eddy gorgeous. Can you said women can't be funny. And it's patently untrue. Right you know. It's just completely untrue. First of all you're looking at a guy who liked women who were funny. I like to date women. Were funny you know. I like i married. Someone who i thought was funny. I i so the idea that women can be funny now in in the in the previous thirty years..

"Really now so yeah you know what it what it has in common with. Today is the comedians today as they always have Certainly in the last forty or fifty years they step up the line and they crossed the line. That's kind of part of their job. You know to push the boundaries a little bit to make people a little bit uncomfortable and to make them laugh and talk about important things i mean. I use it as an example the rise of women comedians or less thirty years and the fact that You know women. Comedians really gave us a good look what it was like to be a woman in america in a funny way. I mean without writing an essay about right and because who's going to read an essay but there they were talking about the women's women's experience in america and it was very. I think it was instrumental in the metoo movement. I think it was instrumental in really opening people's eyes to what women go through I saw richard pryor on. Its own when i was a kid his first appearance and he was talking about being a black kid in peoria illinois illinois getting beat up on the playground and i was laughing like crazy and then i stopped laughing. I thought man. This kid's life was tough. That's what he was really saying but he was coating it in comedy and that's really part of what's great about comedy because it gets us to see the world through the eyes of someone who can get away with talking about it in a way that other people can't and that's what's so dangerous about when we try to censor comedy you know. I get that people can be offended and get their feelings hurt and nobody wants to do that. But you can't everything you say. I can't say a single word that won't offend anybody. I mean i could say hello and somebody somebody somewhere. It's going to get offended. So but the idea about comedy and its purpose and its you know more than just to make us laugh to make us think and i think people forget about that so my take on that is Especially within the confines of something. That has a comedy club. Written on the sign on the walnuts brick walls around and say comedy in his neon lights in comedy. Show comedy show. Anything should be able go in there. What is your take on. This should be lines of where free speech What can and can't be said within the context of a comedy show. I think you can't incite violence. I think that's you know that's a bad line to cross but and i think that.

"The guy who was impressed did a very good job of of how you doing it you know. I have to take the opportunity to mention. We're doing a podcast. My friend Vinnie volume i- vinnie work with letterman. For fifteen years the executive in charge of the shell and yeah i know and his stories are fantastic. Yeah we're doing a blanket. What do you start in that It started yesterday actually on the anniversary we decided to do. The podcast called the constant comedy. Podcast named after my book. We decided to do it because we wanted to talk to people who work there in the in the old days you know at the beginning and at comedy channel and comedy central because as i said it was an explosion of creativity and some of those people went onto brilliant career. Not some of them. We talked to somebody who was the head of pound pictures we. She had her first television job at the comedy channel. She went on to become the head of fox broadcasting. I mean these people didn't incredible things. Yeah everybody everybody advanced except me. But so you're talking to you. So i point you so in mid nineties still there in Say ninety five to ninety seven ninety eight in that period still at comedy central around ninety six ocala just about the time that south park showed up south park with with the first mega hit or was the daily show. Show is cooking by then. The daily show is cooking. But yes. South park went on to become a cultural icon. Night practically I was there when it came in the door. Another one that came in the door and those guys. I'm sure you've heard the story. They they sent a christmas card around to all the networks and the christmas card. Was you know the southbound kids just doing the most blasphemous send up of christmas. You know jesus christ is back. And he's angry or confused and and just the language in the end the blaspheme and they tore all the religions apart. They made up. New religions tore those apart. I mean it was really crazy And and we got it we were. We were very excited. The thing that confuses me here now and it confused me man. I should say now no longer. I'm really give much too. But i used to watch comedy central in those days and notice that there was sleeping during the day of You know stuff that. I would see at night like i'd see a comedy special by comedian. Stand up special and they're at without the bleeping uncensored then if i saw it in the daytime at noon There would be bleeping on it and then you had Shows like park that seemed to have no censorship at all. So i was always confused about where the line of censorship was in because it was on cable. Why not have the four letter words -cational unless it would be like a a raw eddie murphy raw which was just like complete fuller with. I could see how that my ruffle some feathers during the day but what..

It was a no brainer. There are gonna be some huge struggles with getting it off the ground so when you first launched What was the reception of. It wasn't working out and Were you nervous about it. Wasn't it was going to succeed in sale or or sink. Well to say. The least. I am as i noted. We launched with plan b which was not very much program and that didn't work out so well We were lambasted by the press. And i think that a big reason that was because michael fuchs had gone out there. You know all oversaw a honus and saying hey man this thing is going to be great and he was the most powerful man in hollywood which makes them kind of a target right right and so they just said okay. We're gonna feel taken this apart. It's not funny it's stupid. Hbo falls flat on. Its face. michael. Fuchs does a bellyflop. I mean we heard everything from the press..

"I why that's For me personally. I had some dealings. I used to work for chuck on. Who was the guy who storage yet. Yeah probably know all the same people and he responded well to. I mean when i worked for cable vision at that time in in the mid to late nineties He they responded very well to people who were not yes-men coming in and telling people who geniuses. They were doing things wrong and for me. Every time i did that. It ended up in a promotion. I never got to the to the level. You're at where you know somebody would drag me into to the ceo's office but I found out telling senior vice presidents and junior vice presidents. they didn't know what from wrong. Every time i did have. They responded with a this guy knows what he's talking about and maybe by that time It has gone way too. Big to to kind of Manage world like a vice presence at that point in the cable vision corporation of everything they owned so things were changing quickly But so i. I appreciate though that you felt a little intimidated. Did my share of going up against The senior vp. Around that time as well the problem was i had no credibility in programming. So i was talking business to somebody who was on the business side. That was easy for me to go against them. Because i had some background. I had some credibility. I was not in programming. Not in fact. I was so far away from programming was unbelievable. So the whole idea that a non programming guy with no credibility at all walked in and tried to sell this thing. I mean first of all. I was scared walking. I'm not usually ski. Wasn't usually scared in those days. This woman scared me. Sorry that's just the way it was. I think i did the right thing by backing off by the way you know. What a gotten ugly. If i hadn't and not not only that you might not have been there for when the actual opportunity opened story. Which was a kind of a surprise to you too. So i wanna let you tell that story but You know And i forget. His last name is his first name. Is larry who kind of distress dragged into. Come on let's go. You're gonna go talk to the big cheese That had to be Intimidating moment after you've had that In encountered trying to sell it in the first place and got shot down immediately. That was a crazy moment. What happened is larry walked by. He was my boss's boss. And at the time. I was working on this comedy thing for my own. You know account because i figured i was out of a job. The project i've been working on went down. It was a failure. It was a pay television. Channel called festival was a channel with no sex violence. Or bad language. i know it's laughable right. You know then they tell you. How many channel comedy not at work. But it tells a television show with with nothing that people want that. I don't think it's worth it's worth a little. You know a little conversation about this because it was very interesting. This was new business development. They asked me to you. Know to come into new business development and help them check out this channel and the reason they wanted. This channel to be around was because people who didn't take. Hbo the reason. They said they didn't take it was because we had too much sex violence and bad language remember. Hbo is the place you could see. Uncut movies uncut comedy so it was considered pretty raw stuff in those days and there were religious. People people with kids didn't want in their home. They said okay great. We'll just make a new channel like hbo no sex violence and bad language. So i get hired..

"At the at the end of my time That came when when there was a change of management. I was reporting to the president of comedy and he'd been the president since the central started but ultimately he was let go and they hired someone else in the someone else came in and did what what can what would they. They sometimes do which is fired. Alana people and brought in his own team and i wasn't immediately fired. I stuck around actually stuck around and worked on the the first website for comedy central. Which was last was really fun. But ultimately i was fired and line and that was that was which he find. Because i say okay we just want something different now because people get fide. There's no real reason for it. Is that been too long. We just waiting one overhaul in having a complete new might weather. I think i think that's a good That's a good summary of it. The guy who fired me said You've got your fingerprints all over the place art. We can't keep you here you know. I can't because he's going to he's he. He was chest with taking into the next level. And you didn't need me. Anchoring him in any way shape or form so you know. In retrospect i understand it. But you tell you nothing stung more than that and i remember saying to myself at that moment. What are you have to do to keep a job in this town. How about you start the channel and you make it a success. No that that's not good enough to keep a job and I left yeah but looking back obviously you. You could see the great times. You had comedy central. It was my greatest adventure My greatest work adventure ever. And that's why i wrote the book. I wanted people to know especially people now like yourself who are watching comedy central and think that maybe it was maybe it was shot out of a cannon when it was first started and you know instantly successful and you know immediately.

"We picked up some other people to help on the on the way and in a few months we had a demo tape. I had a presentation and we present it to the top executives of atrial. There were about thirty people in the room at the end of the presentation. Michael said i love it. I went up and running in six months and that was my next. You know challenge and moment of excitement and incredible fear. Because now i was responsible not totally just me at this point anymore because the working on it but i felt responsible for the entire enterprise and we had to launch and six months. Yeah well that's sexy enough time still well. We must have been enough time because it launched an added that go six months in. Well you could say maybe was enough time but let me put it this way. Our launch was a complete flop total disaster and so from that point of view. I like to think that maybe we could have done better. Had we had a year before we launch. But i'm not even sure. I'm sure it would have been that much different. I'll tell you why. I mean we ran into after obstacle. We had a tough time getting the programming that i originally imagined for the for the channel. Not because it was expensive but because it was just unavailable has a turned out and That was a surprise so after launching we had to really improvise. That's the best word for it. Okay you improvise and remember. I told you that michael was the most powerful man in the business. He was you know. He had quite an ego and he announced the channel months before we launched saying this was going to be the greatest cable channel ever. It was going to be really funny. Hbo knew what it was doing. Because we were the best television channel and in in the world and we knew how to do these things and guess what happened when it flopped..

"At least i was in the right place. Subscriber forecasting is. That went subscribe. You sort of forecast people subscribing channel something. Hbo is really interested to know as most businesses are what their future revenues are gonna look like. I say they had bosses at at Time inc. and they had shareholders and all the other stuff so they went about forecasting how many subscribers they would have and they weren't doing so well in the mid eighties when i got there but they had. They had thought that they would be in every television household in america by the end of the nineteen eighties. But of course that didn't happen matter of fact their subscriber growth slowed down. So then they were. They were kind of caught flat-footed saying oh whatever we're doing did forecast. Subscribers is not working so we better get better at it and that's hard okay. Well i suppose netflix's now kind of in that kind of business. Yeah you made a. That's a very apt comparison. Hbo was the net netflix of that day on the block. They were doing incredible things with television. They people walked up and down the whole saying we are going to change television and they did. And that's you know that was the exciting place to be in the business. Yeah okay so you was in subscribers which you know it sounds like a good place star so you get to know kind of get a feel of of the actual business sidonie. Well yes you certainly got a feel for the business side. As i said i didn't really want to do that but my thought was that if i did a very good job then i might get noticed and might you know have a better shot at getting a job that i wanted in the future. And that's exactly what happened. Yeah it tends to be on it in the media. I mean i know this. So a famous Media people are going to say uk. Because obviously i never do now. A lot of.

Well as i said. I walked out of business. School thinking about a comedy network and i spent years actually before he got. Hvl couple years thinking about what a comedy network would look like.

"So viacomcbs held its big investor presentation paramount plus which is rebranded and rebooted version of an existing service called. Cbs all access. What did we get yesterday yesterday. There was this three. Plus our event designed to unveil the scope of paramount plus says this revamped version of cbs. All access in a kind of inauspicious. Start this event that was supposed to talk about how the company is going to be really competitive and streaming ended up starting half an hour late because they were having problems streaming so that wasn't a great place to start but generally the main focus last night was squarely on programming all the titles that they're going to be creating the originals the exclusives movies and shows that they're going to be leading into sort of cbs's stable of networks and brands and intellectual property in order to hopefully they hope draw new subscribers to service that has been around almost since the very beginning of services like this. Yeah let's take into that. Because cbs all access has largely been known for shows like star trek discovery and well star trek card and star trek. Lower deck's star trek. What else are we gave from paramount. Plus it how does it differ from. Was he this. All access had been about the last two years. Generally i would say that. The basic proposition of paramount plus is pretty similar to cbs. All access some of the things that make. Cbs all access a little bit. Different from other streaming services is baked into ciba's access. You get a live feed of Your local cbs channel most streaming on demand streaming services. Don't have both. I kind of live and on demand element integrated within them. That doesn't really change paramount. Plus the things that are going to be changing. Like i said it's really about how they're trying to expand people's concept of what's this entire company a includes and so what that is that they're going to be making a lot more originals based on things from comedy central and tv from nickelodeon there's going to be a rugrats boot and an entire new studio dedicated to avatar the last air bender Universe shows in shorts and movies and they're going to be leading really hard into the paramount. Pictures movie studio that the company also owns. They're going to be reviving some franchises from that movie studios past and they're also going to be bringing a few of paramount pictures new theatrical movies to permit plus to stream earlier than would be normal. This is nothing like hbo. Max streaming every single warner brothers. New movie the same day as it hit theaters but subscribers to promote plus a will have the opportunity to stream movies like quietly to the new mission impossible mission impossible. I think at seven on the of subscribers will be able to stream that basically a month and a half after those movies hit theaters. So for example quiet place equal you'll be able to stream in november. That's not as aggressive as as some other services but it does change the proposition. Little bet from what people were used to. Cvs all access right and so. Let's get some details. How what is the service actually launched and home was the cost and did it does it differ from. What's he has. All access was charging. Yeah well this is something. I was kind of surprised that this is going to be such a confusing transition. What's happening is in one week on march fourth they will essentially replace. Cbs all accesses premium tier with paramount plus in a launch on the fourth in the us and across countries some countries in latin america as a ten dollar a month subscription. And that gives you everything on the service. Add freight then in june going to widen paramount plus to be sickly launched a cheaper ad-supported limited tier. That's five dollars month so that's comparable with similar tier that's already on. Cbs all access. So both of the services have these kind of like cheaper ad-supported tears and premium more expensive inclusive tears but ammo plus is going to be rolling them out in. This staggered way which is going to create some confusion for current subscribers and also perspective subscribers know. There's going to be period of a few months where there's going to be multiple apps that have the cbs name in them was have the paramount name in them. And it's going to be hard. It's not as simple proposition for consumers to figure out what they wanna get and where they can actually get it with all those moving parts happening at once so we saw out some difficulty with. Hbo max when hbo max launched last year when they had not only at hbo max as an app out in the market but hbo go and hbo now still existed as made that transition. That was a really bumpy road for them for a while. Because of consumer confusion now add in the element that there is not only just like. Hey there's one subscription it's one price none of that change now. Add in the fact that you've got to tears which launches at one time one of which doesn't launch until another time and those things have different. They unlock different. So it does seem like it's setting up a really a really bumpy transition for them to

Paramount Plus wants to take on Disney Plus, HBO Max and Peacock

"Paramount plus made a big splash with a series of super bowl commercials. It probably led to folks wondering what the heck is. This thing you know clearly is bringing together. But cbs viacom shows and movies. But we've actually already had a version of applause for a couple of years now. It's cbs all access. So what's the deal here. So roger that the thing is. Cbs merged with viacom recently. And so what they're going to do is they're rebranding service to kind of all those other viacom properties. Mtv comedy central and also paramount studios. So that's going in there as well so all these kinds of things are going to get wrapped up along with the cbs shows. A lotta cbs. Shows that you know and love from. Cbs alexis they actually called it. A rebranding to start out. So changing the name Probably a few logos and things like that. We saw the super bowl commercial featured a mountain that all of these well-known cbs characters on spongebob to picard to football players were climbing That's there it's mostly a rebrand. I think at launch. It's going to be mostly the same. Content is cbs access with a couple of new things. There isn't event coming up a week from today. actually a basically it is viacom. Cvs is but they're also taking that as an opportunity to run through some of the content in some additional details on paramount. Plus now we were. We were all sitting in tuning into the disney presentation back in november. Which i think it was four hours long and basically it was just a marathon session of new content. Are you expecting something similar from this event. Or what what what. what are you expecting. What are you hoping for at least get out of this from this event. So i'm hoping for some new exciting content. You know i. My hope is a little bit damp and by that super bowl commercial. You'd think if they were gonna launch a big splashy new show you know talk about some new stars they have. They would be enact commercial for the super bowl if anywhere but we'll see i. They've already said that. The why the launch is gotta be. Spongebob movie sponge on the run. But that's not an original. They've talked about few original properties They're saying coming soon. One called the lioness which is a better creator of yellowstone the hit series on paramount network which is also going to be on paramount plus yellowstone. That is so there's a few things but maybe they'll surprise us to be great to see you know a couple new. At least one new star trek series for example to kind of you know cater to fans who are looking for something new. And that franchise.

Know this is very timely I know to say you used to be a tennis player is it understatement? You were you were a professional tennis player you've written a book about it. You have a podcast called tennis anyone what did you think about the US Open this year I have been completely astonished and proud That tennis has figured out a way to still hold its most major tournaments. I mean they US Open. Was Amazing. You watched world class tennis with zero fans. Yes. which by the way as someone goes to the US Open A lot I love. No fans because New, York fans are the worst. On their phone, they're all. So you it was I was very impressed. I thought I thought tennis has done a great job with it. Do you think some of the pro players were affected by not having the crowd? Yeah I. Mean it definitely helps the underdog. Yeah. Serena Williams is used to playing in front of Twenty, two thousand people. I was used to playing in front of one person two people so. When you're at the low low low and I never even in a tournament like the US Open. But you know you're more comfortable when there's not a lot of people around. So I thought it helped the underdog, but is there a better sport for social distancing then tennis seventy six feet away? Okay we have a couple of great games for you. Yes. Doing let's do it I'd love to play. Okay. So this is a true or false quiz about video games I know speaks to Ronnie's expertise because the last time you on the show we played into the fact that you like rebuilding intendo positions. All right. I mean I'm not even a video game Guy Competitive Michael. Yeah I was GONNA be the guy who invented Nintendo yeah. Okay. So what we're GONNA do is we're gonNA describe something you can do in a famous video game and you just have to tell us if it's true or something we made up running. The first one is for you great in the winter series, you play a superhuman monster slayer named Garrelt and after eight night out on the town, you can even get a regrettable drunk tattoo true or false while. I I know this game actually. Henry Cavill is the actor who plays this guy in the TV. Series of this, I think they were trying to do like. Game of thrones before video games or something that's the tone I'm going to get. So smoked in this game are you? Strap Extra Trivia. Yeah I can't play any of these games. I just know a lot of enough about them. I think and I'm going to go with true. That is correct. All right Michael. This one is for you in the long awaited Gritty Zombie game the last of US part too. You can pull out your trusty Qatar and strum a dorm room cover of wonderwall. I don't believe that. The video game companies would pay the royalties for wonderwall over and over and over again, and because I'm first time get on here I. Think you're GonNa give me a simple one right out of the gay. I'm going with. False your reasoning is incredibly sound. However it is. Actually it is actually. Lie here's the here's the tricky part is that you can choose between six chords. So don't actually license the song. You just have the cords all and wonderwall as one of the many songs you can play. Hasn't figured out how to license the cords. I try I try to patent C. Minor, but they wouldn't let me do it. Ronnie in two thousand and twenty trendiest game animal crossing. New Horizons you can make a Faustian bargain for your soul with a blue goat named Sherp actually over the pandemic I, was hanging out with someone who was playing a ton of animal crossing. So again, a game which I never played myself but in all my time talking my friend talking at me about animal crossing. Anything a gold or making a bargain with the devil in the game. So I'M GONNA go with false on that one at is correct. I Love I. Love. You were just sort of absorbing all of this information about video games even though you're not playing these. You're up on the news now I was talking to. Michael this. Is the last question in the charming farm simulator Star Valley Watch the seasons change and date various residents of your tiny town. But if you're not careful, you can also violate the Geneva Convention on at least two separate counts. Should you be able to simulate dating and a video game? Anyway. I know any of the stipulations of the Geneva Convention? Ask. This question. I I you're working it out you're. Talking I love this I. Love this. Thinking today's Day. It's probably best if you don't on aren't able to date within a video game, I'm saying false to your B s comment Jonathan. Lab. Sorry.
