DIARY: Who’s Ricky Martin anyway? Go Geek!

We like to think we enjoy a wonderful relationship with our readers, and we’re particularly proud of your willingness (often bordering on fanaticism) to submit ideas to the mag - even if the ideas are sometimes a little loopy.

In this context, enjoy a song parody about the PR business by The Geek

Factory’s Peter Schankman, written to the tune of Ricky Martin’s Livin’

La Vida Loca. We at PRWeek have never actually heard the song - well, at

least the editorial side of the mag hasn’t - so we’ll leave it up to

you, fair reader, to determine whether the words and cadence fit.



We’re into taking late flights



At midnight we’ll board the plane



We’ve got three laptops with us,



Enough juice to fry your brain.





Got to be in LA by nine,



Got a trade show, it’s downtown



Haven’t had no time to shower,



Our skin is turning brown.





They’ll make you put a suit on



and go hunting down the press



It don’t matter if they’ve got no news,



the client could care less



Yeah, the client could care less!





(CHORUS)





New York, LA Times We’re travelin’ doin’ PR



We’re up and down the coast, Travelin’ doin’ PR



Our eyes are bloodshot red And we haven’t slept so far



This will wear us out Travelin’ doin’ PR, travelin’ doin’ PR
