An idea I have would be to do an episode like Total Request Live which was an MTV show that played top music videos. We could take current top music and remix/mash-up songs to sound like they are from the 80s.
I found this video where someone remixed the song “Somebody that I used to Know” by Gotye. I don’t know how we would do this, but I’m thinking big here!
Another idea I have, potentially for a video, is a sort of news show or morning show placed in the 80s (80s attire, look, sounds) reporting on Coronavirus or having special guests. This would fulfill our current theme but with a bit of what is happening now.
Another idea like Moon Graffiti is to take an event from 80s, and changing the outcome. We could create a sort of sci-fi genre story (again, think Man in the High Castle) for another podcast. Video aspect of this could be documentary on the “new outcome”.
There are better ideas out there, but these are just the ones I could come up with. Let me know what you think. Add to these ideas.
