The RoF nonsense business class marketing video competition ?

 

Ahem.

 

I had to help out transcribe a somewhat hyperbolic marketing video for some slippery shapeless technology firm..

and it occurred to me that some of you genius's at making stuff with your editing suits and what not, might try to whip one up.

A competition to see who can come up with the most plausibly synergistic codswallop...

No idea what you win. a model plane? ( most of you have the RoF planes by now, or at least the "good" ones.)

 

an example of confabulation:

 

"Fuelled by ongoing learning our curious and talented people

are constantly challenging the status quo.
 
As a team we solve problems that no one could solve alone
and we learn things that no one could learn alone.

We're stronger together. "

 

Etc. 

 

( Example text has been "borrowed" for educational porpoises )

 

 

What do you think? Ugly but interesting/mildly infuriating/definitely not/yes I'll have three.

 

Let me try this out.

 

Ahem * cough*

 

* Bombastic stirring intro *

 

Do you strive to break away from the team that is always sucking down or just plainly being useless?

Are your squad mates an annoying bunch of cry babies who only care about being a well oiled machine?

Do you thrive on breaking out the moves when formation flying for hours over enemy territory.

 

We at Fokker have come together in the spirit of power of the celebration of the risk taking rugged individual and have

fused superior technology with ground breaking no frills flying by the seat of your pants unstable as all heck to create the machine that this type of lunatic needs to push those stats barrier right off the map.

 

We give you the DR1.

 

Never in the history of aviation has...

 

*trumpets* etc.

 

Could be a thing!

 

or not.

 

Do let us know in the comments. Either of you. Thanks.

 

Salute!

 

Plank. ( Knight, stockman and flower arranger.)

I've never tried, but is it possible to mashup/edit some of the videos already out on YouTube? Add new music, FX and then the marketing 'message' as text overlays. Might try experiment in the weekend if have time.

Btw Plank, I'd love to see what 'confab' you'd come up with for that 'terbalik' bath tub you were puttering around in the other night :)

Don't know if this would technically count for your competition, Plank, but I'm currently making a video to promote the game in general. Shall I post it here once I'm done?

Chaps.

Short answer: Yes.

 

DH2:

 

The kite with bite.

 

DH2:

 

The time for your trainer is over, the time to DH2 is now.

 

Give that DR1 a surprise kick in the tail with DH2.

 

DH2.

 

It looks funny

it is funny

It's blinking engine is in the back.

 

But shooting down DR1's is never funny. No. never. it's serious. quite.

 

Put some hair on your chest: fly DH2.

 

 

And hot crumpets when you make back to the AF. and Brandy, you will need it...

 

Salute!

RoF is fine :)

 

"Also, this product is 4 years old now and it will have a very long shelf life regardless of the ME. Many more years of content and feature building and new theaters lay ahead. Our Rise of Flight is 8 years old and still played by many thousands everyday and it will be that way for many years to come. Flight-sims stick around a long time if they are even a little good and BOX is more than a little good.

You're much too late to take the p|ss,

They all migrated to the Oasis,

'Why?' you ask - the truth is stark,

They wanted somewhere not so dark.

My N17 is very keen,

at times it's a bit much. ( too much sauce!)

But if you are a careful chap

you can kick them in the crutch. ( or vent, but vent does not rhyme with much... )

On old NFF, there ain't no twilight

Thus renders your prose, just not all that right.

At the Oasis however, it's not always bright,

So sort out yout facts, and stop talking...

If the dark's finally restrained,

Rejoice my teachings were not in vain,

Now rampant bots do need control,

Alas that is beyond you all.

The word is not out of context. In fuselage construction, the term 'crutch' refers to the shaped assembly of the two horizontal stringers or longerons onto which formers and cross braces are attached to form the desired shape.

I am giving it a try as well.

reluctantly at first but ...

 

Chances of missing something important?

 

not worth thinking about really...

 

and back to nonsense !

 

 

We at RoF have taken significant pleasure in designing for you the discerning virtual pilot the exact nerve rending experience you have come to expect while burrowing through the many varied and interesting layers of banter and informal tosh that are on display here, this evening, and even while your wings may disintegrate, your engine spin off and/or your machine guns frustratingly jam at that exact perfect moment you can be assured safely of the super high fidelity definition of the RoF virtual forum bun fight that may or may not spark up at any given point in a conversation.

 

RoF: the bun fight for the pilots pilot. *cough*

*shaking head* 

 

OK chaps lets pull this topic back together by setting your ignore levels to "mildly serious".

 

and I think the topic is "marketing bilge for the potential RoF advertising jingle" or some such nonsense.

 

Please, lets keep our heads and stay on heading.

 

Salute!

The birds are singing the air is fair

a beautiful day in the crisp autumn air.

I twist my head for a quick look around,

Rat-tat-tat... here comes the ground.

 

Nice job there on that video paullmf2.
