CHECK OUT THE AD HERE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_0jYSPdmJY

The ad boys take a quick snapshot of this terrible ad and develop it into something beautiful. “A Day in the Life,” a late 2017 Kia Motors ad, is the height of #fellowkids culture and Quinn and Mikael are having none of it.

Tune in to this episode for our take on the likely production issues behind this ad as well as a discussion on narrative in advertising. Also, an unnecessarily vivid description of Mikael’s spec script for an anime series called “The Soul Sisters” that heavily involves the Kia Soul.

67 – Venom (1984-2018) w. Dustin Meisinger

Dustin Meisinger & I saw Venom (2018) and we’re gonna talk about it and the character it was based on.

We go over all the weirdness of this Sony film, as well as our own histories with the character, through comics, cartoons, and video games. Not only that, but we speculate as to what could be next for this Spider-Man-less Spiderverse that Sony is brewing up.

35 – Flavors of Youth (2018)

Let’s look back for simpler times, but let’s do it with the 2018 internationally released anime anthology film: Flavors of Youth.

Sophie & Mitch break down each of the three chapters of the film and how they address (or don’t) the Chinese idiom “yi shi zhu xing” [clothing, food, housing, transport]. We also talk about the issues with titling, expectations, and our conflicted feelings towards this gorgeous film.

Make sure to follow us on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook to keep up with news, to join the discussion about food, and to check out all of our personal recipes – this week though, we’d love to hear YOUR recipes; your flavours of youth, if you will.
