“Magic Mike” Leaves Open A HUGE, MASSIVE, THROBBING Hole

by Angie [A Whole Lot of Nothing] on June 6, 2012

in Blogging,Observations

I’ve said this to myself in my own wee brain, and I said it out loud yesterday on the Twitter.

The marketers at Warner Brothers promoting Magic Mike are missing out on harnessing the HUGE, MASSIVE, THROBBING hole of using the blogging sector to promote their movie.

We moms, non-moms, and gay men of the blog world are horny. We want to see slick, hard bodies moving to hard-beating music on a stage who then accidentally fall into a love story.

[Update: The Magic Mike Red Band trailers are out. WARNING, you will need some private time after you watch them.]

Has the 50 Shades of Grey phenomenon taught you nothing?

Magic Mike - Men At Work

We want to watch Channing Tatum gyrating.

We need to see Joe Manganiello’s abs glistening.

We lust for Matthew Mcconaughey’s voice whispering in our ears.

We long to spend two hours watching Matthew Bomer run his fingers through his hair.

We are the voice of the huge, massive, throbbing hole left empty in the marketing strategy for Magic Mike.

Movie watch parties, red carpet interviews, private vacations with our choice of actor, life-size stand-ups swag, surprise actor home visits, wallpapering blog backgrounds with shirtless hard bodies: WE CAN DO IT ALL!

We are here for you, Magic Mike promoters.

Use us. We want to be used to fill your huge, massive, throbbing need.

In this case (and in this case only), I’m sure there would be hundreds, nay thousands, of bloggers ready, willing, and eager to market your movie. For nothing more than a movie ticket and the wishful thinking that we were a part of this band of thrusting men, we would open ourselves to you.

We want you.

We don’t even care if it’s a good movie.

Use us…for our pleasure.

They need us more than we need them.

AMEN! For some reason I can’t comprehend, it’s like they don’t really want to really market this movie… And it has so much potential… :) yes.

That is just so damn true. I mean, do they not realize, that us “mom types” talk ALL.THE.TIME. to our friends and the world at large about pop culture. Imagine how much more inclined we would be to talk about it if they let us have a “sneak peek” at the ACTION ahead of time. I am just saying.

That first shot of Mcconaughey makes him look like a young Schwartzenager (totally spelled wrong, but I don’t give a flip). :O

I don’t either. I kept looking at the picture going “Why is Channing in a pic with Arnold?” then I scrolled down and went “Oh” and then “EWW” No, Matthew, don’t look like the Arnold!

Need? No. Want? Yes.

Clearly, they need us to work with them. Don’t you want the chance to go on a private getaway with your choice of actor? I mean, that’s just one of the options I’m proposing.

I don’t even care if the movie has an actual PLOT (much). Just lemme sneak some booze into the theater & drool for a few hours.
Matt Bomer….. Mmmmmmmm…

Just like porn, the plot is unnecessary.

Great post! I agree 100%.

They are “tontos” (knuckle-heads) for not reaching out to the bloggers, especially the mom bloggers who need a little fantasy in their life.
