The most OT post I have made

Postby mrgoat » February 11th, 2010, 2:14 pm

Sorry, this is very random. But I need to know if the game "Simon Says" is played in America.

I want to do some adverts saying "Simon says...DO SUCH AND SUCH" and need to check it will work on an American audience. However I cannot post in on the boards I wish to place the ads on as it will ruin the gag.

Thanks!

Damian

I wonder, tho, about its popularity with youngsters. Simon Says was something we actually _played_ when I was a child, but that was before Wii consoles, laptops, iPods, .... in fact, I don't think we even had the wheel yet, and fire was the new thing.

But http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simon_says is actually a rather interesting article.

It's OK. There is no way any children will be seeing THIS ad. But thanks for the thought!

Being aware of the industry Damien works in, that is very funny.

He is probably the most famous male 'talent' the UK has produced. Imagine Benny Hill, that actually did things we can't mention on a forum children read. That's Ben Dover.

Nice chap.

I edit my own posts to remove unsuitability and now you go and lower the tone.

Before things go too far off the rails, and since Goat's question has been answered ... Simon Says this topic is locked.
