"Have a camaraderie with those individuals who all believe this. The sixth lever you discuss is called commitment and consistency. Now, when I see that, for some reason, my mind turns to politics, So let me ask you this. Donald Trump acquired what strikes me as a type and magnitude of influence. That is perhaps without precedent, at least in our lifetime. What did he do so differently and well? Well. If you remember in his various rallies, he would say, turn the cameras around. Look at this audience. He was so savvy about the rule of social proof when people didn't know him very well. And now I'm going to give you a reason. That is going to, I think, reveal my political views on this. Why have people stayed with Donald Trump over all these times where there are consequential missteps? There's an old literature in persuasion, science and cognitive dissonance says if people have made a choice that resulted in a negative consequence The more negative the consequence, the less likely they are to believe it was a mistake. So what you just described in economic terms would be usually called the sunk cost fallacy. How well does your version of that and the economists version of that intersect? It does intersect because of the principle of commitment and consistency. Consistency is characteristic of a lot of strengths. You say what you believe. And you do what you say. You don't come off as irresolute or wishy washy or confused. The downside is, if you've made a commitment, then you want to stay with it because of that initial action. Even when the circumstances no longer warrant their choice. I am curious how the principle of commitment and consistency plays out in geopolitics. If you were called in to help the US refine its position in regard to China or Iran or one of its other rivals, What would you advise? I'll give you a couple of examples. The former Egyptian president Anwar Sadat, was a master negotiator, even under circumstances where He was objectively at a disadvantage, for example, when he was having to negotiate with Israel after the six day war, in which Israel was superior What Sadat would do is give his opponent Reputation to live up to He would say to the Israelis. I'm so glad that we were able to negotiate on this and that you are my bargaining partner because everybody knows how important equanimity and fairness is to the Jewish community. And they would then behave that way. This happened to me, by the way, when a previous book that I wrote called pre Suasion. The 1st 5000 copies of the book were printed poorly. The pagination was wrong. My editor told me what happened And he said I hate when something like this happens to good guys like you. And you know what? I heard myself. Say, Stephen, It's okay. It's okay. You know, it happens to everybody and became the good guy. My newspaper carrier goes by my door every morning in his car, and he throws the morning newspaper and 75% of the time he gets it in the center of the driveway. And every year he includes a little envelope Iran Christmas time. I'm supposed to put a check in there as a tip, which I always do. But this year after I read the research Put a little note in the envelope. Thank you for being so conscientious in getting by newspaper in the center of the driveway so it doesn't get wet from the watering systems on either side. Did that. Improve his aim. Stephen 100%. Okay, so unity is the brand new chapter the brand new lever in this edition. What led you to add it? It was the building evidence within behavioral science of the power of social identities. To drive people's behavior, the groups with which they felt they shared an identity and the links to which people would go to promote and protect those within their we groups. I could see the tribalism that was emerging in our society, and it seemed to me. Oh, I missed this one. I had always thought of it as something that was an accelerator of the other principles. If you know, somebody inside your group gave you a scarcity, appeal or a social proof appeal or authority. No, no. This one stands alone. I'm curious if your research has anything to say about family estrangement because An astonishingly large number of people have an estrangement within their families. We often don't like our fellow family members, but we still feel a connection to them. We still feel Handed with them by virtue of the unity group that a family constitutes. Let's say I have a friend at work. Who is much more like me. We like the same authors. We like the same musical artists. We like the same ethnic food and I have a brother. Who is the opposite of me on all of those things, and we're out on a boat fishing and they fall in And there's only one life preserver. There's no question who gets it. My brother. So it's the difference between me being able to say to my in group members. You know, Stephen is like us versus Stephen is one of us If I can say that. All influence barriers come down for.

All of the executives and their wives would come to this big party When you someone had to clean the big House and one year I cleaned the big house and went about my business. And then the next year they were administrative assistant reached out to the crew leader to say well I want that little girl who cleaned last year because she did such a great job.

Clark said she was only one of two black lawyers in her class in the only woman she had to overcome feelings of isolation and figure out how to navigate the course. Started with two white men. And one was a big football player, and we have a partner who was a football player. And so they just they had an instant bromance instant and then the other one became very close with The leading senior associate who work closely with the head of the group. And so I just felt like I was the odd man out. I didn't have anyone you know, day to day. And so that the first year was very difficult. Being a junior associate who also happens to be black, Clark said. She knew she'd have to take it upon herself to build relationships at the firm. Something else you do. As a black woman to be successful. You go out of your way to make white men comfortable with you.

And, yes, I am going to bring a different perspective. And I do that I use my voice and it doesn't really matter who it is respectfully. I share my black woman experience, But more than that I share. Ah, poor black woman's experience. We're talking about making decisions about staff are junior lawyers are compensation. That perspective, That voice has to be in the room so You know, because my experience is very different from a lot of black women, right? And I recognize that and I'm grateful for and I have a responsibility to remember all of the people who were just like me.

"Watching for certain things. That might go wrong for biden nigerian wherever first year second year first hundred days. That's usually a measure. Isn't it so we'll see we'll see Is always something that might are for each president. And then that's when he okay in trying put jabbing and say roy. Okay find a way into now star. I it's not a question of if things go wrong. It's things will go wrong. And it's how you handle them in. And and and that's why trump did not do as well because he he couldn't handle a recognize the pandemic. It's your also couldn't handle social justice. He couldn't handle the the economy if there was a blip hopefully biden with his belief in big government. Because i heard a republican. Speak the other day. Jamie diamond who is republican kind of a moderate person was saying that with all the money flowing through the economy. The economy's going to do well in the market will probably even though the market's already factored in we'll probably do pretty well but i think that's going to insulate biden a little bit by the still got major issues around immigration still got it major issues around social justice but so far. He's made inroads and the big thing number one on people's minds coming into the election and last year and even this year was the pandemic and biden has handled the coronas sixty percent of the people are more sixty eight to the people give biden high marks for that certainly because the reason why is because the new variants even more potent that when a second wave literally in europe. Uk stone well as well actually. It's because they got the vaccination program to try and be but we had a new very issue in iran christmas as well and uk shutdown worse than any other countries at that time. But baden's done well because that new variant was more potent and spreading more quickly is In most countries still now and Us handed at pretty well. I don't think donald trump would have handled that well because it's worse than the first time. Donald trump downplayed the pandemic throughout. And there's no reason to believe that in a second term he would have handled it any differently by on the other hand made it his top priority and as a result. I think it was fifty. Five percent of the population has now been vaccinated. And there's enough vaccinations and in fact the major problem now is to convince especially Men that you know it's not about you. It's about sort the good of the country for the good of the country. People need to get their vaccinations. When i listen to people saying well i'm not going to get the j. because you know eight people got sick blood clots. I'm thinking eight people out of eight million really really eight p by a very serious number you go do something about value not hundred asking. Yeah i think social justice area. He really wants to get address. And it's going the right way. Now we've p. one speaking to you know the black community as well as saying well going to see some start seeing something. I think that you know that. That's s good. You know the current of the right. Right way i just me now. Is the economy. Now that's the thing. Well i think the pandemic. I think it's good. I think the economy is good. I think social justice is going to be very tough. And i think you know. I think it's going to be tough because he gets signed..

Thank you for that. 574. My husband is a Portuguese to send and he's making pickled pork. Marinated for three days in the fridge, Fried and Christmas morning served with chunks of fresh steamed bread, fried eggs and pink champagne so interesting to hear about Christmas traditions around the world. And what people do it even in countries like in Asia, where they don't you know some people celebrate Christmas. A lot of people don't Um It's interesting to walk the streets and see their representations of Christmas decorations, for example, and how they go to such great lengths to make tourists feel so welcome, which is really very special. I wanted to give you a couple of deals. Um, So when I used to host a radio show on a station in Atlanta, I would always fill in for the main guy. Also there. Iran Christmas and so we would look up some deals because people are always waiting until the day I don't know why, but sometimes at the very last minute People are waiting to go on by their Christmas gifts. And maybe that's you like they're people. I met traditions over the years where on Christmas Eve they go out and they do all of their shopping. I was yesterday, walking back after the show. I walk down Michigan Avenue to my mom's place and where I parked my car, and I was thinking about how all the Christmases and Christmases past normally, you know this day this week. The streets would be mobbed on Michigan Avenue. Would be really hard to find it even a space to walk on the street because everybody will be crowded around. And even if there weren't as many people, there are always a lot of people. But even if there was money, they'd all have a lot of bags with them. And so you get crowded out because of the bags. That everybody's carrying it yesterday. Was the first time all week I've actually seen a few people on Michigan Avenue in the afternoon shopping around. Maybe they had a bag. Maybe not, but it's really so different this year just to underscore You know what we've been talking about The entire show, Which is this is a Christmas unlike any Christmas for all of us, you know, And it started the week started with, you know the Christmas star, right? The conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter For the first time in 800 years, right? None of us were alive. The last time won't be alive the next time And having you know that sort of kick off this very unusual Christmas week where you just see People are just not there. And then I saw the sign Gap is leaving Michigan Avenue and so they've got a clearance sale going on. Probably some good deals there. Everything the sign said, was 30 to 60% off. If you're looking online for last minute gifts as well, you know, Amazon, of course, has their their gold deals of the day. So one of the things that I said. Obviously, cooking is on my mind today, but there's a A quiz in L. A skillet and pan organizer that seemed like a good deal of 40% off for five or six or seven piano. How many pieces That was a good idea? Cooking utensils? Cooking things are always I think really good. Um They also had. I thought this was, you know, a nice idea for somebody If you're to get a ring doorbell. Have you seen the ring Doorbells? This is where they get all these crazy videos of people actually stealing packages so they don't realize they're being videoed all the videotaped all the time. That's part of this theme. Of the connected home. About 20 something years ago I was at the consumer electronics show. And followed by the house were show which both happened in January in a normal year, which this isn't But you know, you go to Las Vegas. You basically don't come back for I don't know. Three weeks. Anyway at the consumer Electronics Show that you're they were talking about the connected home and how wife I was going to come in, and everything was just going to be connected. And it was like 25 years ago that they were first talking about connected homes, and they They didn't really have WiFi the way we have it today, and it's so fast and everything. It makes it so easy. And their idea was a connected home was you literally had to run wire throughout your whole house to connect whatever you wanted to it. And the first thing basically, that companies thought we all wanted connected. Where are Jacuzzi tubs? And I remember getting press release after press release where it would say that it was say we now have a capability is you're driving home from the office to set your Jacuzzi tub to the exact right temperature, and it'll fill up. So when you walk through the door of your bathroom, it'll be ready to go. Like that was their idea of a connected home. Think the ring ideas a much better idea They took a long, long time for her house is to get as connected as they are now. And Amazon echoes have been a big part of that. Alexis have been a big part of that and the ring doorbells and other companies that are doing things like there's very clever if you've got kids who don't want to carry keys with them. Our kids never wanted to carry a house key. And so Sam installed first, the Elektronik keypad on the garage so you could get in there and then he installed in electronic lock. For our door's deadbolt that you could unlock with a code and that just solve the problem for kids, and now they make those where you actually can have them connected to your phone. Via WiFi. And if somebody's coming, you can see who's at your door and then you can literally unlock your door from them from anywhere in the world. To me, That's a great idea for a holiday gift, particularly if it solves the problem with kids getting locked out. All right. It is 11 45. We're gonna take a short break when we come back,.

Mojo in the morning, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Toledo Ohio hits beginning to look. Like Chris Mum especially. Against Black. Happy by the way. I just wanted to be fifty five degrees out and listen to this please fifty-five I think got even. Colder than that to be able to listen to this don't you know fifty five, you can start and then the colder it gets the better. But. It was like eighty this can. Explain what you got here. So I took my dog for a walk nights and weekends and. I I just need everybody in my neighborhood to be clear when I'm staring into your house, I'm just looking for design aesthetics and I ever really bad problem of like staring and people who don't. Know, I know. But I'm like, ooh, that's a nice light fixture or ooh I really like that mirror or. Like. I've done that Megan and I I know what you're feeling because when a few years ago, we're painting our house knows driving around taking pictures of other people's houses, which is really creepy but I just wanted to try and explain the color of gray. Right. So as I'm walking by him looking into people's windows I see what am I neighbours has their Christmas tree up now this is a no judgment zone because I personally have left a Christmas tree for over two years without taking it down. But my question as did they put it up because it's the only thing they're looking forward to in quarantine or have. We just lost it that it's been up for an entire year. That's what I wondered from listeners who keep their tree up year round and they decorate it for the different holidays that are coming up. So you can never never noticed it until. So it's not like you've noticed that it was. I. Think it just went up like this week that someone saying f twenty twenty. Bring Iran Christmas I think. So I, kind of want to join them I just. The hot chocolate and be like I understand Meghan. I thought of you less I totally forgot to text you but lucy was watching something on the Disney channel or Disney plus I don't even know what she was watching. A commercial for Christmas at Walt Disney world. And I was like Oh my gosh it's September and they said like the holiday magic starts I don't even know. October four. Decorate for Christmas November fourth I didn't see it. But if you step all my gosh step in any of the big box stores whether it's Home Depot or Costco or at home or any of those stores they have all had Christmas out for a month or most would be the year to go by the way because they're limiting the amount of people that are there. So I think this would be the year to go by the way eighty eight days until Christmas. Thirty three days until Halloween. Fifty nine days till Thanksgiving. Hundred Eight, hundred eight days until Easter but I feel like I'm the only person who's not mad that Christmas starting now. Let's get. Let's get. Through fall I and I actually I I'm kind of like normally like that spike but this year bringing on but if we bring it on onto fast, then we'll start to get frustrated. It's not here. Yeah. But I i. just need something happy in my life you know what I mean like I. Did I get happy when I get the news reports that the number of Cova deaths was was low. Makes you happy this year you doing? Yes, I WANNA. Christmas tree with the holidays that are. For Halloween. Christmas tree. Matter of fact, couple texters might say that they do that. They said, we just actually took down our.

Is this something that you do every year or is this something you know when it's crazy? Cova? She wants to go all out with. Yeah. She getting much number focus and stuff. I'm like Oh God.

"I am here today with the CEO and Co founder of Blue. Tag shop our welcome. Thank you for being here Dr Officers Today. Yes we're in Princeton New Jersey today. It's very exciting and I noticed that Lincoln was doing some research you had started in the jewelry business and you created this company this e commerce business. Can you tell me a little bit how you got into that? And what did you learn through that process about ECOMMERCE at the time? Absolutely so I got into that business. My background has been pretty much intact and Prior to starting dot I was working at another company where I was managing a lot of their internal website infrastructure. So when Back in two thousand and a lot of websites going online It just seemed like Julia was when it was still wide open. People were there was a lot of books. A lot of household items you could buy but there was no Yup Luna was a company that we're doing diamonds and patterns call Internet diamonds but there was nobody focusing on this mass market affordable jewelry and So I went down to Adam and district by knew somebody who essentially was had a cousin who was a big manufacturer out of the Julia Daman district in New York and pissed him the idea of starting this Selling Jewelry Online. And then we kind of just took it from there so you know and and a lot of the learnings that I had from that business actually helped me get involved with what I'm doing now with voice and the reason for that is that you know we didn't have a lot of other startups back then. Our business was not like venture back. We didn't raise like millions of dollars through venture capital getting luxury to lose a lot of money every year Revenge money and we just kind of took it from there so you know the only way for us to kind of survive especially when it came to dimes like that two thousand eight payment luxury goods selling things. People don't need was really a challenge and You know at that point. We kind of look back a lot at a lot of personalization so you can call it like Bay road designs you know. How do we make sure that anybody who spent something like fifteen hundred dollars for their engagement ring because they were? That's what does the target audience. How do we make sure that a good chunk of them also by that reading banks from US right and not even that at that point we would add another whole new set of A lot product line doing battle party gifts right so it was just about. How do we take a customer The cost to acquire customers extremely high. The only way it was gonNA make sense if you've ever do kind of personalized experience for each customer and segmentation was just not an option you know since then from me. This one on one presentation has been really big. You know whether it's things you need whether things you don't need luxury items and then I'll go back into a little bit of later in the days when we started seeing these initial voice devices started coming in you know Voice Assistance Alexa.

They've known for years. What does that like working with your brother? And why is it important that the two of you created this together a few years ago? So yeah I'm working with my brother I think is something that I feel like you know we are first of all very different personalities and I think that really helps us kind of get to our You know what what that does is that you know. There's a lot of times where I might have an idea for example where it is something that I feel maybe is more like a North Star Idea. Right on that point Him being the brains behind all the technology that we have you know so. He's working on a lot of platforms. Before just like I've had startups. He's worked at startups also but his focus has been making sure that. How'd you take a technology company and make it scalable? And that's what he's done all his life so when we talk about you know. Let's say a lofty idea It is great. We don't say that okay. We're not going to get there but having the right path to getting there is something that you know. That's where I get that from him and at the same time I think I just feel like it's just like a little different Relationship when you are able to kind of be able to wake up in middle of the night and have an idea that you want to talk about and you literally can just call Dr. I think that's a unique quality that you don't do that a lot of co-founders even at the other stage but I feel like I can always do that right so even before starting the company I remember even previous businessman he was not in modern that you know I would always remember just walking to work and having some idea of Iran Christmas. Their sales are going really crazy. Like they have some tech issue like literally just getting into the habit of calling him so even before this business. Several years I've always consulted with about a lot of the tech needs that we have to scale a business and I think it was just such a natural thing that when I started this thing. You know it's like we already have this thing going on for the last five years even not working together so why not. Just change that so it definitely makes a difference. I think it says a lot about a company in it shows that you guys have a strong bond which makes I think builds a lot more trust in the company but more interest as well so tell us a little bit.

Future of Voice Shopping with Shilp Agarwal, Co-Founder and CEO of Blutag
"I am here today with the CEO and Co founder of Blue. Tag shop our welcome. Thank you for being here Dr Officers Today. Yes we're in Princeton New Jersey today. It's very exciting and I noticed that Lincoln was doing some research you had started in the jewelry business and you created this company this e commerce business. Can you tell me a little bit how you got into that? And what did you learn through that process about ECOMMERCE at the time? Absolutely so I got into that business. My background has been pretty much intact and Prior to starting dot I was working at another company where I was managing a lot of their internal website infrastructure. So when Back in two thousand and a lot of websites going online It just seemed like Julia was when it was still wide open. People were there was a lot of books. A lot of household items you could buy but there was no Yup Luna was a company that we're doing diamonds and patterns call Internet diamonds but there was nobody focusing on this mass market affordable jewelry and So I went down to Adam and district by knew somebody who essentially was had a cousin who was a big manufacturer out of the Julia Daman district in New York and pissed him the idea of starting this Selling Jewelry Online. And then we kind of just took it from there so you know and and a lot of the learnings that I had from that business actually helped me get involved with what I'm doing now with voice and the reason for that is that you know we didn't have a lot of other startups back then. Our business was not like venture back. We didn't raise like millions of dollars through venture capital getting luxury to lose a lot of money every year Revenge money and we just kind of took it from there so you know the only way for us to kind of survive especially when it came to dimes like that two thousand eight payment luxury goods selling things.

"Average to poor right and it still has made a billion which kind of upsets me because it just gives the green light to so many projects that they were like well. It's all very uncured might make opinion and nowadays projects the probably GonNa happen whilst the original scripts are going to get tests to one side but but did you see on twitter. Someone has recreated the off the lion king so it was less national geographic and more lightly original original all really that it was some much better is so much. I mean it was basically Simba an NBA. They were recognizable as the original characters rather than the kind of way. It's you know nature documentary style. There seems to be going with if we should. My opinion doesn't quite work. Did you talk about new review. I did John in fact I guarantee the technical details of the limitations of the animals facial expressions meaning an icon emotes and it doesn't matter how good your dialogue is because great dialogue will make you believe but great expression will make you feel audience feel enough. That's right and you shouldn't please take notes and this in a mall. That's yeah obviously and that's more website Roy but I'm happy that this the is making lots of money because I like lots of Marvel installs. Assumes Hashtag cannot me butter. The Evan keeps moaning about the lack of originality but you are aware that like I the lion king wasn't even original to begin with it's rip-off some Chinese animation and basically it's hamlet with lions and everything originates back the Shakespeare Anyway Aladdin's story. That's a thousand years old. The MERMOZ is a basic is like a an ancient Danish tile that none of these were original to begin with so so park show that for a second just enjoy the experience you getting and <hes> yes. It's an okay experience as mentioned probably with the prestige of Film Lion King Helter Idea and Jon favreau knows this in fact Jon Favreau said in an interview when Donald Glover turn up he knew his lines he news lines before he got the fucking scripts because he breathed his film as a kid so long might continue from that perspective Geno Disney's like eight billion dollars this summer alone over that in context and ask insane. This isn't records that nothing will ever have. I think this is a very very weird year a like a Unicorn year in film because we had <hes> we had avengers inches come to its conclusion is it's en burke conclusion of chapter with with the Infant Saga Star Wars coming to an end with it saga. AH THE IRAN CHRISTMAS Time we've had game of Franz come to his end as well so in terms of like media and pop culture like this is the sum of all the power so naturally.

Talk Talk All about the tower of terror and we're GonNa have some special guests join us as well recording and you may have realized I said getting off to ride in the beginning because I do not like the bride one bit. I wish I was not on this. This is one of my favorite rides. This is one of my favorite ride not want stitches favorite Russian in my second favorite but that's okay we can still talk about it's my least favorite at least all Walt Disneyworld category okay alright all right so let's get into the history of the twilight zone tower of terror. Don't even say it so the story of Disney's twilight zone tower of terror starts in the early eighties. I believe it or not a second phase of development was being designed for Disneyland Paris. Then called Euro Disney included was a free fall type ride in frontier land that was to be named Geyser Mountain. It would have been part roller coaster part freefall ride that shot guests up in a vertical shaft a team of imagine years had been tasked with creating creating new pavilions at Epcot and one of those plans included something called the great movie ride newly appointed Disney CEO Michael Eisner like the plan so much he he decided that this new ride shouldn't epcot but should be part of a completely new park. This new park would be a studio back lot theme park dedicated catered to Hollywood and entertainment to release stand on its own. MGM Studios would need a big E ticket attraction. Several attractions have already been proposed including Dick Tracy crime stoppers which would be later made into Indiana Jones adventure at Disneyland still needing a major e ticket attraction. The idea of a drop shaft Reid came up and was chosen there have been several proposed ideas for haunted attractions including a ride based on Stephen Stephen King's novels of Vince APPREC- goes tour millbrook scenario ride or real hotel and a whodunit murder mystery but N- none progressed into development in one thousand nine hundred nine movie director Mel Brooks Disney CEO Michael Eisner Park Designer Mighty Murdy skylar imagine your c McNair Wilson and a group of engineers met to discuss plans for the park's first expansion and I throw rod numerous ideas were kicked around for the new park section one early and prominent idea was it's a castle young Frankenstein attraction complete with Bavarian village and drawbridge leading to the castle this idea morphed into Mel Brooks as Hollywood Horror Hotel early imparts arts development into imaginary Bob Weiss had pursued idea of an art deco high end nineteen thirty style hotel near the park's entrance. Mel Brooks left the project but idea of spooky the hotel had stuck and disease team looked at available movie and TV licenses and found a perfect match the twilight zone now we're going in here from Jacob and David from the kingdom the Kingdom podcast about their thoughts on tower of Tar. I'm Jacob. I'm David and we are the hosts of the kingdom to Kingdom podcast. That's that's right and we love tower of Terror Bez right. What do you like about it. David so tower of terror for me is in the category of Perfect Disney rides and when I say that I mean things like splash mountain. I've said is a perfect Disney ride. You've got the atmosphere. It's kind of a dark right thing. You've got the drop so you've got the thrills. You got the characters in their tower of terror. Does it while doing something with a spooky. Ip that most people now. L. Really haven't watched that much of twilight. Zone is not something that I think you know everybody has watched we might know about it and we might have seen kind of the pop culture influence influence of it but it's not something a lot of people especially kids have grown up with but they make it work. Yeah I think that's kind of interesting because as I remember as a kid watching especially Iran Christmas and new years they would always have these marathons the twilight zone on Scifi and I would watch those all the time and really enjoyed them and so I really enjoy the twilight zone. Ip and there's just something about the all the details in in that lobby and boiler room in the boiler room and then throughout the ride just how it especially the Disney world version where your elevator goes up and and then forwards and there's just something so unique about the mechanics of the right. It's not just like something you'd see at six flags where you are strapped to a pole and and it goes up and down. It's they really thought about the story behind it and I loved that right and I think tower of terror is a blueprint for how Disney can operate in the future satisfying types of fans. You grew up with twilight zone watching it. we're enough separated by age that we were able to watch different things growing up I I didn't really watch the twilight zone I can say I've probably seen two or three episodes. Mua Yeah but I'm able to get the entire survived the whole mood of the show I get the setup I get what it's trying to convey and I'm able to experience the whole story just through the right itself so tower of terror. Here is my main connection to the twilight zone. It's the thing that I've experienced the most of the twilight zone from so you know Disney's he's able to create that entire experience for fans and non fans alike where it's whole from beginning to end. It's kind of miraculous yeah. I think that's one of the things that goes into like you said the category of perfect tractions it needs to stand on its own and the tower of terror totally does speaking of standing on its own the exterior of that film. is so well done so like imposing at the end of the street. They're sunset boulevard when you're in Hollywood studios. It's such an icon I mean it's benign made the icon of Hollywood studios as it should be which fairly I mean it. Just it looks incredible and just looking at the building you get this story. uh-huh you understand what's going on what I'm headed towards in this attraction and I think that's the thing we're like right. It's one of those that you know. I feel like there are a lot of rides that have have a great atmosphere in the queue and in when you're walking up to it you kind of get a bit of the story beforehand but they always kind of feel like lines right they they feel like themed lines. Disney's meaning getting better and better at that but tower of terror is a story from beginning to end. You feel like you're walking into a creepy hotel. All you feel the bell. hops are in character and they are being. They're setting the tone in the mood for you. As you're walking through. It's it's a testament to what can be done in a theme. There's it's it's crazy. whenever you're out in the garden before you get into the actual lobby. There are so many details whenever you're standing in line. Just take you know I mean you have the time. You're standing there but just take a look around and there's.
