"Missed Opportunity" theme game

Billy K.

Recommended Posts

Just came up with an idea of "Missed Opportunities".....I will give you some examples, and you will come up with similar items in this theme.......

1. Bruce Willis doing battery ads for Sears.

2. Keanu Reeves playing Superman

3. Boeing advertising the "777" on slot machine reels.

4. Two-hit wonders "Hot Chocolate" doing a Nestle ad.

5. For once, have the "running of the Bulls" on Wall Street, instead of Spain.

6. Move Hormel meats(makers of SPAM), to Lagos, Nigeria(the SPAM-ing e-mail capital of the world).

7. The Washington State produce bureau suing both the Beatles and Steve Jobs for using the Apple as their emblem.

8. Having the Pittsburgh Pirates play some of their "home" games in St. Thomas, Martinique, and Jamaica

Some are a bit abstract, and some absurd, but I'm sure your creative minds can come up with some more "Missed Opportunities"......
