Keep it Timely: GSP Not Impressed with Asylum

Posted: October 7, 2010 in Marketing, PR, Social Media, Strikeforce, UFC

Well, MMA may be one step closer to mainstream than I imagined. No, I’m not referring to the Cyborg family’s  recent appearance in ESPN’s the Nude Issue.  (Congrats STRIKEFORCE…I guess *shudder*.)  I’m referring to the fact that MMA’s popularity is growing enough for potential spoofs of itself.

The potential mass media savior, George “Rush” St Pierre recently made fun of himself during a trip to Asylum.com.  I love the concept but do have one problem….they are making fun of something he said on Sept 23, 2006! The “I’m not impressed by your performance” was uttered by GSP to Welterweight Champion Matt Hughes after Hughes defended his title against BJ Penn.  Now although I do find this spoof funny, c’mon guys was there is nothing more timely than that?

•    He could be ducking the paparazzi;
•    He could always bust out his break dance moves in the office to that oh-so-charming French Canadian rap music he loves;
•    He could just do a back flip amid the sea of cubes; or,
•    He could walk through and be accused of being greased by anyone in the office he is better than…

Ok, so none of these are particularly that funny but you know where I’m going with this.  If you’re going to poke fun – let’s keep it fresh and top of mind.
