In the midst of our advertising-themed week, I had this idea:

I’m speaking at this conference outside New York on Thursday. I will be on some sort of stage. It will be filmed. And that’s where our “product placement experiment” comes in.

Instead of touting actual products, how about in the middle of my talk I suddenly break out into a sort of hodge-podge serenade that we concoct together right here right now.

What I mean is: Go to the comment section and share your favorite word or phrase…a word/phrase that appeals to you for some random reason…maybe you like the way it sounds…maybe it has special meaning to you…maybe it’s the fanciest word you know.

or give me an instruction to do something like hop, do a cartwheel, make a peace sign, etc. It can be anything at all, as long as it’s, you know, not rude, mean or dumb.

I will do my best to incorporate all your words/phrases/gestures into a 2-minute interlude (“station identification?” ) right in the middle of my presentation Thursday night.

If all goes as planned, I will post the video here when I get back in town next week.

Are we a bunch of freaks here at Mission Amy K.R., or what? Let’s never change.
