NTN Encore Question of October 22nd, 2011.
Played at The Frog & Firkin in North York, Ontario.
Headliner:...MUSIC VIDEOS over TV Appearances and Festivals
Encore Question:...What piece of exercise equipment is featured in the music video for "Here It Goes" by OK Go?
Tonight I'm playing with my two boards and with Rob COSMO/ONJ, and Phil PLBAAB.
Here's how my game went and my comments: Tune Up...ROCKET...5000/5000...1st/9. .............LITBOX...5000/5000...1st/9...our five and one other player sweep the round. The LineUp...ROCKET...13000/15000...2nd/9...I'm too late switching on one answer with this board. ...........LITBOX...14000/15000...1st/9...there's a three way tie for first. 9 right and 1 wrong was excellent. Triviaoke...ROCKET...19530/25000...5th/9...CHATZ wins round. ..........LITBOX...20510/25000...2nd/9...I took one or two -250s this week and one I don't answer. Rob helps with this round. Opening Act...ROCKET...27780/35000...4th/9. ................LITBOX...28780/35000...2nd/9...PLBAAB wins round. The Pound key round. I must have gone 8 right for 1000, 1 for +250, 0 for -250, and 1 I didn't answer. Headliner...ROCKET...32280/56250...4th/9. ............LITBOX...33260/56250...3rd/9. MUSIC VIDEOS:...1. Tawny Kitaen dances on the hood of a sportscar for what Whitesnake video?--Here I Go Again (all the choice were all Whitesake videos)...2. Fred Durst makes out with _________ in the 2002 video for Limp Bizkit's song 'Behind Blue Eyes':--Halle Berry... 3. This song's video for Jamiroquai won four MTV Video Awards in 1997:--Virtual Insansity...4. The 1982 Grammy Award for video of the year went to a song by:--Olivia Newton-John...5. In 2008 many popular internet links were redirected to a video by:--Rick Astley (NTN extra fact 'Never Gonna Give You Up' led to the buzz word 'rickrolled' meaning 'fooled')...6. What actress goes head to head with Coolio in the video 'Gangsta's Paradise'--Michelle Pfeifer...7. His 1996 music video 'Ghost' holds the Guinness record for the longest music video--Michael Jackson (NTN extra fact 35 minute video was based on an original concept by Stephen King)...8. Which 'Glee' star is featured in the video for Kate Perry's 'Last Friday Night TGIF'?--Kevin McHale...9. In the video for the 2004 video song 'I Just Wanna Live' Good Charlotte members dress up as:--Food items...Q10. Beyonce's video for this song was inspired by Fred Astaire-Cyd Charisse movies:--Naughty Girl
Phil gets us Q2 and Q5. Q4 gave us trouble. Rob rules out Olivia and as he's a huge ONJ fan I'll trust him. It was before Micheal Jackson's Thriller and Madonna so I go with Hall & Oates although I name the wrong song. We should have thought that the Grammy's are always a year behind! They were still awarding her prizes for 'Physical' for what was issued in 1981. We went with Britney Murphy as I thought being in the video would impress Eminem for later roll in his movie. Once the answer was revealed they realized Pfeifer was in the movie 'Dangerous Minds' in which the song appeared. I went with Corey Monteith for Q8. I realized it was one of the two guys listed but I was thinking it was the guy passed out on her bed not the geeky date guy...however I didn't know his name anyway. Q9 I don't remember ever seeing this video so go with 'The Beatles'. Q10. I went with 'Crazy In Love' because at least I knew she danced in that video.
Well not good at all as I miss Q4, Q6, Q8, Q9, and Q10.
Now the Encore betting comes up. Well 50% as usual.
Rob says the answer while I'm still dictating the question. I agree with him. I saw clips of this video in the mainstream media about the You Tube sensation. It is getting harder to watch video on television. My favourite video channels dedicate most of prime time to reality shows.
Correct Answer:....5. treadmills
[NTN Extra Fact:...OK Go is a rock band orignally from Chicago now residing in Los Angeles.]
Actually the song is called 'Here It Goes Again' but I suppose they ran out of room for the full title.
I remember the DEVO video which I also saw the group perform live in concert for 'Working In A Coal Mine' which had them on treadmills but walking towards us in the audience.
I'm right and stay in 3rd place as LITBOX with 49890. I earn 3000+ points for meeting the standard of 18000. I'm listed as 8th in North America.
The bar is listed as 3rd in North America with a 49755 average. COSMO wins.
(NTN.com lists us 3rd out of 1541 bars with a 49755 average).
I'm really surprised that the bar scores are so low but I guess everyone missed some of the middle of the round Headliner questions to break up their bonus points. I thought the Encore question was easy and glad they chose this then some of those ten questions.
Here's how the rest of the bar did: Player preEncore Final Rank ntn.com rank COSMO 34740 5 52110 6 26 ON J 34220 5 51330 7 28 LITBOX 33260 5 49890 8 31 ROCKET 32280 5 48420 11 39 PLBAAB 31350 5 47025 13 44 CHATZ 22670 5 34005 102 230 ME 21230 5 31845 127 289 IDUNNO 19640 2 9820 1563 1852 CRUSHR 16270 3 8135 2397 2303 (ntn.com listed 5663 players and 5070 with a positive score)
