Play ACTION Bus Bingo! You probably won’t

By Barcham - 24 June 2013 12

Please work.

In the history of attempts by marketing departments to take something that will never ever be considered cool and try and make it fun and likeable this ACTION bingo certainly is… the latest.

So anyone got an ACTION Bingo yet?

I caught a bus out to Latham on the weekend.

If there were less spots like “School student stands up for senior” and more realistic ones like “Teen plays loud tinny awful music on their phone speakers in the back seat” “Twitchy guy swears at you as you walk past” and “Decided not to put bag on floor due to mysterious sticky residue” I would totally have a bingo.

What’s Your opinion?

or the “snarky response from driver because he had to figure out the change from a tenner, the poor precious” square?

You mean the “cheap cretin trying to get a free ride, hoping the driver doesn’t have enough change and failing miserably” square. Don’t you.?

“Overhearing a conversation between passengers about their last stay at the AMC”. I’ve had that happen before. No joke, I heard one of them say “Yeah, I was in the same cell as my Dad” or words to that effect. It was an enlightening, if somewhat unnerving journey, as was the time I was sitting in front of two blokes discussing their most recent breaking and entering exploits.

Sure, that’s the advanced version. The easier one would include:

Driver completely ignores passengers breaking all posted rules.

Person next to you unpacks and eats entire takeaway meal, leaves rubbish on the seat.

Driver suddenly realises he’s ahead of schedule and pulls into a stop just to kill time – bonus points for a full bus, on a Friday.

Passenger boards and waits on bus for 10 minutes at interchange, gets off at first stop 300m down the road.

Witness one half of a loud argument via phone.

Schoolkids fill back of bus, making it impossible for them to exit.

Guy next to you slams down a can of bourbon and coke, ’cause he couldn’t wait…

Where’s the “Late for work because the morning bus came 10 minutes before it was meant to, late home because the evening one was 15 minutes later than it should be” square?

Is that the lamest marketing you’ve ever seen?

Seriously, someone got paid to think of that?

I hardly use action anymore since I cant rely on the frequency of buses with racks.

Adequately compensated by the rack on the Sky Whale…

They missed out on one: “Bike rack actually on a bus.”

I hardly use action anymore since I cant rely on the frequency of buses with racks.

So if you get a bingo while on board, do you shout “BINGO” at the top of your voice?
