Vote Trivia ’08 was an easy theme for The Posse to grasp, especially the rhetoric minded Captain F. He started the Posse effort out right with a heavily loaded INTRO, full of politically minded quotes, including the words of the current presidential candidates that year. It was also marked Captain F.’s 15th year as a trivia volunteer which he saluted with a special presentation at the awards ceremony.
On the Challenge Line, the Posse was heavy into the skits including a spoof promo for a reality series So You Want To Be A Presidential Candidate. Posse audio theater featured a skit about voters competing to see if they are smarter than a presidential candidate. The results were not surprising. It was not a good year for challenges as the team fell flat, as did the Posse call-in contest: Trivia’s Best Campaign Pledge. It was a follow on to the previous year’s Trivia Idol, but never garnered a single entry. (More…)

Trivia is like a campaign. Listen as Trivia declares its intention to run for your knowledge in 2008! This production was fun for the producer since it was about politics. Many of the clips were pulled from actual campaign speeches. It was also the first year that Posse members started pimping their kids for the intro. Phal‘s daughter voiced some of the IDs at the end. The intro also includeds two mashups that are funny and a bit sobering. Captain F. also went nuts with the hi-pass filter
