It is easy to blame Friends, Kramer, Elaine and George. If it is not something you have thought about, take a moment. It was these characters and the inflated salaries these actors demanded that gave birth to unpaid “actors” showing far and away too much of themselves to the voyeur that resides in most television viewers.
Both shows were cancelled. In their places came people surviving in exotic locales, fat people dancing the weight off, a music industry hijacked from actual talent, and the resurgence of Joan Rivers. This is just a small fraction of the dumbing down of America and the West through absurd programming.
Reality TV gave the world a springboard to look down on the United States, and an opportunity for Donald Trump to become relevant once again. Is it possible that the OTC markets might return the States to a place of righteousness and an end to this folly?
That is hardly likely. However, on Tuesday, IC Places (OTC: ICPA) announced that it had commenced pre-production of Common Denominator, hosted by The Bad Boy of Branding, Jay Leopardi. Its stock hasn’t been the same since.
Jay Leopardi, this wannabe Tony Stark look-alike, appeals to so few outside of the frat boy set that it is hoped that he fails miserably by most with real jobs. The show, (the lowest) Common Denominator is set to air on Punch TV. This is ironic given the fact that Leopardi’s mere visage begs many to question the merits of doing just that – punching their TV.
At the risk of sounding like a hatchet job, take a look into Jay Leopardi and his career. He began as nothing, and for the most part, has not changed a bit. This career includes a short-lived music career and an apprenticeship with Proctor & Gamble under his father. From there, not much more, as his bio reads, “He began signing clients and securing product placements. Jay now works closely with big names including Cedric the Entertainer, Kel Mitchell, and Miguel Nunez Junior, to name a few.”
If Reality TV is here to stay, by all means look at IC Places to rebound. For the adventurous investor who believes that the shelf life of reality TV is limited and the end may be coming soon, IC Places needs to be dropped and left for dead.
Today saw IC Places trade heavily with a price range of $0.0091 to $0.0125. It ultimately ended the day with a loss of over 23% and 37 million shares traded.
Keep your eye on IC Places. Investors may be showing a rationality lost years ago, or at least a rationality that will not extend to the upcoming presidential debate season. Either way, IC Places is going somewhere and taking a huge following with it.
