When Occy met Iggy - video
Welcome to another Great Moment in Marketing.
To cross promote their new Iggy Pop x Billabong boardshorts - a collaboration that feels as natural as a 70-year old in a leather jacket - Occy has been lined up to interview James Newell Osterberg, though it may as well be Robert Mugabe for all the rapport established.
Occ doesn't know where Iggy is from. Iggy has never heard of Kong or Chappy Jennings. Occy doesn't know Iggy's music. Iggy didn't hear the question.
...and so on.
After a purple patch of Occ-Casts, this instalment hits like a speedhump. Still, nice to know Iggy is healthy though if you want some better vision then see below.
