Scotty and Nige Hangover Party

YoungAndVocal 2 June 2011 41

Was anyone else disgusted about 104.7’s decision to hold a competition for people to attend a hangover party?

It is absolutely disgraceful that a local radio station promotes an event, obviously aimed at the young people of Canberra, encouraging them to go out and party with D-grade celebrities in order to have a next-day ‘hangover party.’

As a young person in Canberra, I found this extremely careless and fail to see the logic behind this competition. 104.7 PR needs revisiting. This is a PR disaster – encouraging young people to drink to the point of ‘achieving’ a hangover when binge drinking and alcohol fueled violence is already enough of an issue.

ABC NEWSRADIO ROCKS!

Glen Bartholomew and Marius Benson tear it up old skool.

+1, it was a different story when the commercials actually played music (not just banter) and 666 had competent presenters (not that embarrassment Ross Solly). Except for AM, if I want to be informed, it’s Newsradio. If I want music, iPhone to the rescue.

Assuming that this is not a gee-up….thank you thank you thank you!! I thought I may have been the only news radio listener in Canberra.

For the latest news and some of the best political interviews and commentary in the country check out Glen and Marius every morning, along with their regular guest commentators from major papers and websites. Classic stuff.

Ah ha I knew it JB! You are Scotty aren’t you? Adult juvenile radio presenter by day and ultra intellectual Riot founder by night who only posts in profound minimalisms that really make you think.

On second thought your avatar photo looks nothing like Scotty??

Well I’m sure both Scotty and Nige are probably decent people in real life, I know that their only doing their job and the personalities that they project are probably scripted by someone else anyways. Any friend of yours is a friend of mine JB. Apologise for jumping on the knock S&N bandwagan.

Sounds like someone needs to get their panties out of a knot and unwedged from their butt crack and find something worthwhile to worry about rather than a radio competition.

I don’t listen to breakfast radio – by the time the valves in my wireless warm up, it’s nearly lunchtime.

I’m so appalled by this blatant, disgusting and disgraceful display of wowserism that I’m going to drink another 6 ciders and get pissed before I go to bed tonight.

Cheers!

Young and Vocal – did the soap box need an airing. Firstly, the promotion was aimed at a Movie bearing the name The Hangover II. Secondly, and in support of a few other posters, can you or anyone else not make the distinction between the name of a promotion and the consumption of alcohol as a self choice mechanism. The pretext you posted on that it was a promotion to get drunk and turn up to a movie is baseless and quite frankly naive. People are freeto make their own choices and thusly need to stop blaming media outlets for their own personal behaviour choices.

Harden up, make choices and live with them, don’t look for scapegoatsor others to blame. It is so typical of the culture at moment to look for someone else to blame instead of puttingyour hand up and saying yep, i did it and its down to me.

Firstly, yes, I can make the distinction between the name of a promotion and the consumption of alcohol as a self choice mechanism. I am a young person and I do make the conscious choice to drink responsibly. Don’t be naive and think that every young person in Canberra cannot make this choice!

Secondly, what I am raising here is that it is irresponsible of a radio station, aimed at the younger demographic of the capital, to promote an event which involves alcohol. This is a huge difference between this event and an event, like a function, presentation, launch, where a bar is available. The Hangover party, regardless of it’s ‘smart’ link to a film, was anchored solely on a party and suffering a hangover in company – clearly promoting excessive drinking. You may not see it like this, but I tell you that other young people (and those younger than myself) will!

Drinking responsibly does remain the responsibility of the individual. However, we also see in alcohol adverts that it is encouraged people drink responsibly and in moderation – something obviously lacking from this event.

I think I need a drink

OP what are you doing listening to 104.7? The subject is not even worth discussing because it is drivel from the Scotty and Nige radio show. If anyone knows Scotty and Nige and sees them in the street – please physically assualt them with extreme prejudice.

Don’t worry – wasn’t listening by choice!

Actually one of the tag lines of the competition was watch the hangover with a hangover.

You listen to commercial radio – what do you expect?

If it’s any consolation I was at the event and it was woeful at best.

Worst excuse for a ‘hangover party’ ever. We walked in the door and were given two (2) drink vouchers (tap beer, house wine or champagne) and some finger food.

We were given the chance to win more vouchers but didn’t bother.

It wasn’t the drink-a-thon that was promoted and certainly didn’t justify spending two hours in Mooseheads.

So let me get this straight, you’re upset because you were given two free drinks and some food, and a chance to win some more?

I’ll just add breakfast radio to my list of topics which generate unwarranted levels of passion.

This kind of fake bad boy action is just what you’d expect from these tools. They would never actually do anything out of the box like just randomly announce “Let’s all go to that full moon party on in the bush tomorrow night” but give them a money making event to promote and they know exactly what to do.

I went and saw it today and it is hilarious… even without a hangover!
