OK… so I finally got to actually watch some VERSUS coverage today! (Yay for streamers who shall not be named less they be shut down and I go back to being a miserable cow this afternoon)
I missed the first hour as I was still trying to find any sort of coverage of Lights (which I didn’t, but that’s a rant for later) but hey, an hour is better than nothing!!
Right off the bat I am noticing the great camera work. Seriously. The number of cameras, and the variety of angles (especially the low level ones and in-cars) really give the viewer a sense of speed. More speed than these cars actually possess in person come to think of it. LOL! (no seriously, they tend to look a bit lumbering in person)
Hey! Jack Arute isn’t his usual caramel colour! LOL! Get George Hamilton on the phone stat!!
Sweet camera work, really awesome guys! A++
Apex Brazil commercial nice!
Already the improvement of the broadcast team is 400%. They are actually excited, and therefore drawing me in as a viewer to be excited too!
hehehe did Robby Buhl just say “dang namit” ? BWHAHAHAHA! It just turned into Looney Tunes!
The Firestone Brickyard commercial is great. Nice change of pace and emotion.
I’m loving that every commercial break is sponsor or race driven.
I love that they are matching the car numbers with the car colours in the scroll. (don’t know if they did that on ABC/ESPN) If I had to complain about something… the scroll is too far down on the top of the screen.
(big pet peeve of mine for all series) I don’t tune in to watch the scrolling stats. I tune in to watch the racing.
LMAO at the Downforce commercial with Dario! “they’re magically delicious” OMG! Hilarious!! Can’t wait to see the version with E.J.
Finally someone started listening to the fans about what they want to see in an ad for the series. Such a great mix between showing/glamorizing the on-track action for the Versus ad’s, to showing the personalities of the drivers (a la Nascar) in the Downforce ad’s. More please!! Keep em coming.
Izod commercial with Ryan nice!
See! It’s so nice is that every commercial break isn’t shoving the Princess down our throats! They finally realized that there is a paddock full of marketable drivers at their disposal and that they need to reach out to THEIR fanbase as well as the ignorant masses who swallow up the Danihype.
wow… VERSUS is a real He-Man channel huh? LOL. I feel the need to grunt, spit and adjust my package
*disclaimer so as not to confuse Dean* I do not have a package. I have boobs. Moving on.
I’m so impressed by the entire broadcast team. They all sound intelligent and knowledgeable about racing. AND they are actually paying attention to the action on the track while they are talking and then reacting when something happens. It’s like fricken night and day. I’m giddy like a school girl right now!!
Well, that was certainly a better ending to my day. I think I have sorted my viewing issues out for tomorrow too. yay!!
I won’t even bother trying to watch the Lights race. It’ll just piss me off.
Ok… gonna walk around for a bit. Been at this computer for waaaaaaay too long today.
