THE BACKSTORY OF “STICKING WITH YOU”:
One chilly, winter day in fair New York, some Saatchi & Saatchi big-wig advertising studs (we’re really hoping they’re studs) who work in the building across the street from ours posed the question “B.I.G. OR 2PAC” in their window. Rather, they posted the question. With Post-It notes. Two CC ladies sensed a higher calling (literally higher) and rushed to respond with “THUG LIFE.”
We waited. And waited.
Not unlike texting a new guy off OkCupid, the bumble & bumbling idiots (sorry, harsh) took 1,098,591 hours to respond, instead asking “B.I.G. OR LIZ.” We didn’t know what “LIZ” meant, so we assumed Liz Lemon, and wrote “BLERG…?”
A weekend passed. Then, they asked, “DEN OR SEA.” After much back and forth, we realized they were referring to Denver or Seattle. Super Bowl talk, which we don’t have much time for, being comedy people and all. So, we said, very matter-of-factly, “LOL.” Period. Boom.
BUT, as anyone with texting game will tell you, you can’t just end the conversation like that. So, we continued with a question. Related to superheroes, as you can see above. Time will tell what the Saatchi & Saatchi stud muffins, aka our future husbands, post in return.
In the meantime, we’re going to make a movie about it. Or a 10-minute short, or this blog, or possibly only 30 seconds worth of water-cooler conversation. Regardless, the film will feature an epic tale of star-crossed, (well, street-crossed) lovers, and the great lengths two 20-something women will go to meet their sticky suitors. We’ll blog the progress and cast everyone we know. Enjoy! Also, copy-editing ninjas, get off my back. Thanks, LYLAS.
