Title: Whammy skits you'd like to see on PYL 2019
Post by: tpir04 on May 06, 2019, 03:37:00 PM
Let's hear some ideas on the types of Whammies you'd like to see this time around. But first, I'd like to share a few of mine.

1) "Flashback whammy" where said Whammy encounters a Whammy from 1980s PYL and is confused as to what it is. The 1980s Whammy takes the player's cash, earning the respect of the 2019 Whammy.

2) "ATM Whammy" We are introduced to the Whammy trying to access his ATM account, only to discover his account is empty. He confiscates the player's cash and puts it into the ATM, which backfires onto the Whammy, blowing him off-screen.

3) "Electrician Whammy" where Whammy is attempting to repair the player's scoreboard. He "accidentally" resets the player's score to zero and promptly gets electrocuted.

That's what I have for now but I'd love to hear yours!

Pardon me for going slightly off-topic, but two revived Whammy animations Iíd like to see is the breakdancing Whammy and the Michael Jackson Whammy. Say what youíd want about the latter, but it was easily my favorite one.

Not sure if I dare say this one...

How about a Sailor Moon Whammy, where the (female) Whammy is dressed like Sailor Moon wielding the Moon Stick, and performing SM's specialty move, Moon Healing Escalation, and hits the scoreboard...only to wind up "healing" the contestants' winnings to $0.

Since you dared to say it, I get to say this: dumbest idea I've ever heard.

How many people even know what Sailor Moon is? Iíve heard of it, but never saw it. How many contestants and viewers would even get the reference?

Why?  :boo:

Youíre getting dunked on but you deserve an explanation

And yeah, Someguy pretty much nailed it, itís way too obscure a reference for the audience

You clearly think about game shows and Sailor Moon a lot. From your posts here itís evident itís a big part of your life. Congrats for finding something youíre passionate about! But you need to understand that Sailor Moon is not something the average American TV viewer thinks about often. And the number of people who would want to see Sailor Moon combined with 80ís game shows is not a very large overlap.

If your Whammy made it to air, youíd get three people creaming their pants in excitement, and three million people scratching their heads wondering what they just saw

The fact you went into such extreme detail about something like that didnít help. If you had tried pitching something general and accessible, something everyone can recognize, you might have gotten a different reaction

I'd just have a simple Thunderstorm Whammy, where you hear birds chirping with a sun shining, but quickly, a storm cloud moves with a Whammy inside of it, and then a big bolt of lighting zaps the player's score away, only to have the Whammy get struck by himself, before the storm moves away to the right. I'd perhaps have other weather-related Whammies, such as a tornado where a Whammy sucks up the players score before the Whammy crashes upward, a Flood Whammy where a gush of water drains the player's score away with the Whammy, and a Blizzard Whammy where the player's score gets covered in snow and then as it melts, the money melts with it too.

It's quite fitting as severe weather is real world Whammies that can cause a hike in insurance, and perhaps the Whammy could remark about "your insurance bill is about to take a hefty premium! Ha ha ha ha!"

Make it a more generic magic Whammy girl doing all this with a "Whammy Wand" or something like that, and it might actually happen.

This.

Part of the charm for me with the classic Whammies was that they had a life and comedy of their own, and you didn't have to be pop-culture-savvy to enjoy them. Even the Michael Jackson one was enjoyable to my 9-year-old self the first time I saw it, and I had no idea who he was supposed to be.

When WTANPYL happened in 2002 and they made a ton of direct pop culture references (the Judge Judy Whammy comes to mind), and to me they all just kind of fell flat. I love Judge Judy but that Whammy was actually one of my least favorites; it felt forced and really out of place, like they were going for the cheap laugh.

Sounds good/close enough.

With shopping list in hand.

(Player's score: $19,500)
Whammy: (looks at list) "Let's see...I need a five, a one, two zeroes, and a nine." (He looks up at shelf.) "Perfect!" (takes numbers, exit Whammy)

Storm Chaser Whammy:

Whammy in a pickup truck holding a video camera. Tornado comes by picks up Whammy and the player's score and they disappear as the tornado moves on.

I also wanted to point out you aren't the only anime (or at least, the only Sailor Moon) fan out here on this board. :D
