Watch out, BGov! You may have big budgets and a flashy corporate kitchen filled with all-you-can-eat snacks, but CQ Roll Call has…well, this, eh, er, uh interesting adaptation of the famous School House Rocks jam, “I’m Just A Bill.” And it’s on the YouTubes. So take that, Bloom-nerds!
Yes, this marketing plan is sure to make the Economist Group tens, if not twenties of dollars — less the cost of production and their dignity, of course.
I kid, I kid. The below video is not an advertisement for CQ Roll Call. At least I hope not for the sake of Senators Tom Udall (D-N.M.) and Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) who made cameos in the uncomfortably funny production. Apparently, the #awkward video is the brainchild of video producer Andrew Satter, who with the help of Christina Bellantoni, Emily Ethridge and Derek Knoderer, tricked their colleagues into reciting lines that were later cut up to make the below vid for a recent corporate meeting.
