The Goat Posse effort in 2011 was one of quality over quantity which is not to make excuses, but we took what we could get. Frankly, the Challenge Line was dying on the vine, but that opened up long stretches of time to work on original productions.
The Intro took a toll early on due to a last minute course correction (see Intro description for more detail). But the Posse soon found its hooves with a creative re-imagining of Lonely Island’s “I Just Had Sex”. An all-night effort ensued to produce “I Just Had Corn” with contributions by both Posse members and nearby talent including Aaron, who would be named the “Rhyminister” in 2012 in-part for his efforts on the track.
Probationary members Drrrty A, Rhyminister, and Mistress Carly would contribute greatly to many of the productions, serving not only as talent but as producers.
- 2011 – Intro – “Superheroes of Trivia”
2011 became a new-era of collaboration with regard to the production of the hallowed ‘Trivia Intro’.
After 2010’s production was finished just 30 minutes before airtime, the Posse vowed never to come so close to the deadline for airtime again. As Murphy’s Law would have it, this open declaration would only seal their fate. Just days before Coco‘s early departure for St. Cloud, Captain F. phoned him with grave concerns: the intro was not shaping up to be the epic production it always had been and should be. Something drastic had to be done.Continue reading →

- Safe Harbor! Second Half Intro
Digital Dave and Princess Yum-Yum, with the help of Jim Gray produced an intro in 2010 to be used to introduce Safe Harbor! a Trivia-only music show on Trivia Sunday from 1 a.m. to 3 p.m. It was funny and predictable in the beginning and then went totally sideways, leaving your jaw agape while reaching to play it over and then a fifth time. For 2011, Dave and Yum Yum created an intro for the second half of the show. Like the first intro, this one makes you shift uncomfortably in your seat until you are confronted with a double-take inducing ending that leaves you asking, “What just happened?”Continue reading →

- I Just Had Corn!
The inertia for this spoof came during trivia which is the way the Posse prefers to work. In the beginning hours of the contest as the Posse was waiting for challenge line calls that would never come, Mr. Choo Choo rolled in the prod studio and pulled up Lonely Island’s “I Just Had Sex” on YouTube. After appreciating the video several times, Drrrty A suggested that we spoof this song and soon work began on what would become “I Just Had Corn”.Continue reading →
- I Just Had Corn! (Re-Mastered)
The marathon that is Trivia sometimes leaves volunteers too tired to improve on projects started and completed during trivia. For “I Just Had Corn”, Jim “Spector” Gray earned his name by re-mastering the track to smooth out even more edges, including a proper application of auto-tune that had Phal sounding just a stones-throw from Akon himself.Continue reading →

Following its first video production “Can of Ass” in 2010, the Posse returned this year with another pondering of the culture that surrounds Trivia. Princess Buttercup made her directorial debut for the Goat Posse, putting pictures to Phal’s screenplay about a urinal, a man, and his gum.Continue reading →
