I'm sure you're all unaware that this weekend in Los Angeles, CODXP happened. CODXP, you ask? To the best of my knowledge I think it stands for Call of Duty X-Perience? Basically it's where thousands of gamerdorks come together to play a new video game. While zip lining and paint balling were also available, I don't think this crowd cares much for physical activity.
Since Chiat does all the advertising for Activision, they let us go for free. Not too tempting, UNTIL they told us Kanye West was playing....hmm... I mean I like Kanye as much as the next white girl from Provo, Utah (?).
Helena and I, the two blond females in the building. This lady has been known to get in VIP at a club for telling them she was the Princess of Monaco...suffice it to say getting us to the front row was not a problem.
What was a problem was when we had to watch a bunch of dudes compete for this trophy with fake dude guns at the bottom, which they won along with $400,000 DOLLARS!!! The whole time I just wanted to run up on stage and yell, "GO OUTSIDE!!"
Finally they took got to the realll dealll. Here's the setup crew.
Here's our krewww.
The videos I took look amazing on my phone and terrible on my computer so I will work on getting better copies of them. At one point Kid Cudi came out and I missed high-fiving them both by inches!!! Blast!! For now, here's where he popped up right behind me.
And where he descended.
First moments on stage.
"I'm lost in the wooooods!!!!"
Ballet + hip hop? Why not. This definitely did not make me miss my leotard-wearing days and I think a few of them unfortunately forgot their spray adhesive. At least none of them had to wear any of this.
Annnnd here's where we made eye contact.
I know I just wrote a blog post about hating internet narcissism, I know that on Monday it may be a different story...but last night my job was a little cooler than yours.
