Tonight an offering of a free idea for the producers of Finding Bigpuffery. And as we are apt to say, it is worth every penny.
The town hall-style meeting is becoming a mainstay of the show. It provides a nice introduction to a few of the characters that become the focus of the episode, the so called locals, and we are not speaking of Powell’s Locals. Like American Idol, it is a cattle call for talent. Some of that talent is cultivated well before the town hall event, but a shill is a mainstay of bigfootery, no surpise there. But some of that talent is not cultivated, it simply shows up and takes advantage of an open meeting. One can count on at least one, if not a hand-full, of goof balls showing up and adding their own particular and peculiar flavor to the event. Sadly, those folks are edited out, casualties of trying to trim the fringe off of a clearly fringe interest.
So, the idea is this. One already has the footage of these eccentrics in the can and some footage of the reactions of the cast and other attendees as they were subjected to these folks. Why not use it in the way that Idol uses the failed auditions? With just some more production time, one would certainly have an entertaining extra episode without the extensive costs of going to an extra locale. We suggest another bonus episode exclusively made up of the goof balls that came, talked and had us scratching our head and chuckling quietly from the back of the room. Who knows, bigfootery’s William Hung could be born by Finding Bigpuffery, perhaps even a spin-off.
You’re welcome for the content idea, and on second thought we will call it intellectual property so get in contact if you want to negotiate.
