07/08/11 Update: Keep them comments going! Some of the suggestions are really good, but we could use a few more! Also, we’re going to implement a deadline for this contest to win a) Respect, b) Spam, c) Sung’s undying love so we’re going to accept all suggestions by Sunday, 07/10, 12pm PST.
Everyone knows “Sung Kang, star of THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS: TOKYO DRIFT,” the venerable and legendary host of CAR TALK DISCUSSION w/ Sung Kang. If you haven’t seen it yet, then this is your last chance, in it’s unadulterated form (we’ll get to the adulterated part later in this blog). Although we’ve only produced two episodes, and people are digging Sung as the egomaniac that he really is, we’ve hit a little wrinkle.
A few weeks ago, we got a legal letter claiming that the title of Sung’s show was already taken by another reputable program on public radio (Hey, I listen to it every week myself), but we argued that the two programs are very different and there is no way that the two could be confused. Alas, they didn’t buy it, so we’re going to have to do two things:
1. Re-name the show
2. Alter the previous two episodes to have no mention of the show’s title
My fellow Asian Americans, look at the flip side: After just two episodes we’ve reached a moment, in Obama’s post-racial era no less, when we can have an Asian American male be mistaken for two white guys on the radio. Yes, we can!
Therefore, like Voldermort, the aforementioned title that can no longer be named, is going to be named by you guys! We’re opening the floor to you to come up with the new name for Sung’s show. Maybe AUTOMOBILE DISCOURSE? In fact, it doesn’t even need to be about cars. We’re planning to get Sung out of the garage and into the other situations.
So, just leave a comment and we’ll choose the winning name. Also, make sure to type in your e-mail in the designated field when leaving a comment (don’t worry, it won’t be published), so that we can contact winner(s). And what do you win? Like all of our contests here, you win Spam, the Offender mystery meat of choice. So get cracking and leave them comments!
