“We playing another game of Bingo Ryan?”
No you ungrateful little skeezeball, we’re playing VideoLink.
You remember Video Link? You don’t? Well sit down and listen, this is my time to be old.
Back in MY day our Music Television Channel and our Black Entertainment Network played music videos! That’s what they need to go back to doing even though that is not really a sustainable or profitable broadcast plan!
Anyway, back in my day they played a lot of music videos and old black TV shows, and on Saturday Mornings, BET would air a programming block called “VideoLink”, which was really just a cheap ass way to repackage the same music videos we had been watching all week (okay, they did more old school, but still). That’s really a brilliant ass plan when you think about, I guess the older, more business-understanding me gets why this was a thing. Anyway, I’m losing track here.
VideoLink was a segment where they would play 4 videos that had a common “theme” or detail and at the end they’d reveal what that common thread was. This is what you’ll be playing for a shirt.
A free shirt. Stop whining.
This contest will take place over the Month of May so that many people have opportunities to get involved. Each week, starting on Wednesday, I will post a new set of videos for y’all to guess on. You can officially submit your guess by mentioning the KWC Twitter account (@TheKWCBlog) and what you believe the common theme is. Correct guesses will be noted and announced on the post the following week, with a running tally. At the end of our series, the winner gets a free t-shirt of their choice! I’ll come up with tiebreaker rules later.
SO FOR OUR FIRST SET!
Let’s see how you fare with these 3 videos:
T.I. – Let’s Get Away
Jay-Z featuring UGK – Big Pimpin
Jamiroquai – Seven Days in Sunny June
This one SHOULD be easy. Three videos, one theme/commonality, let’s see what you got!
