The Most Embarrassing CES Party List Promo You Will Ever See
As an entity that's often involved in party planning and listing at various advertising and marketing events, we're well aware of what it takes to host and sponsor a great event. We're familiar with what it takes to promote a party. We're familiar with the talent needed to insure party goers have a great time.
Which is why we are both amused and horrified that CES Partylist guy, Michael Terpin - also founder of SocialRadius - decided to appear in a promotional video drumming up sponsors for his Partlist Party. Yes, the entity that lists all the parties at CES also has their own party.
They are going to host it at the Michael Jackson mansion in Vegas and to make the announcement, Terpin donned a really bad Michael Jackson get up, complete with glove, to hype the event and to solicit sponsorship.
The video, which kicks off with the very camera-awkward Terpin doing a Hair Club for Men-like "when I'm not helping tech and entertainment companies with PR and social media and crowdfunding campaigns, I run the CES Partylist," goes downhill fast like a really bad car dealer commercial.
Cheesy doesn't even come close. But hey, they're trying to raise money to head over to their Indiegogo page and check it out.
