Meredith Vieira, Today Show Crew Play Rock Band ...Badly

July 30, 2008 -

It's a safe bet that Meredith Vieira wasn't hired to replace Katie Couric based on her singing ability.

On this morning's program, Vieira along with Today Show cohost Matt Lauer, weather guy Al Roker and correspondent Natalie Morales played Bon Jovi's Living on a Prayer.

Living on a Prayer lost.

GP: Thanks to reader Adam Muller for the heads-up!

I thought it was awesome!!! The point was that video games can be fun and they looked like they was having a good time. I'm sure they werent airing this to show that the NBC staff is the greatest freaking rock band players. it was for a laugh and I laugh and enjoy every moment of it.

Too bad they didn't play 'More Than A Feeling'.  I've been told that Boston songs have the potential to cure cancer.  With millions of viewers, that could have been a heck of a lot of cancer cured.

A respectable effort, they win half the internet as a prize.

I just wanna throw this in, Rock Band 2's songlist sounds amazing.

Re: Meredith Vieira, Today Show Crew Play Rock Band ...Badly

Well, at least they had fun.

Re: Meredith Vieira, Today Show Crew Play Rock Band ...Badly

It was so funny I was laughing so hard becuase it is so bad.

Re: Meredith Vieira, Today Show Crew Play Rock Band ...Badly

I can't think of anything witty to say, so I'll just say this:

LOL!!!!!

Re: Meredith Vieira, Today Show Crew Play Rock Band ...Badly

I couldn't rag out on people for trying something new.  Gaming is about having fun no matter how well (or badly) you play.

A segment that doesn't portray gamers as monster mass murderers just waiting to pop and highlights adult accessibility and good old(new?) fashioned fun?  We should be overjoyed rather than sneering down our noses like elitest wankers ; )

 

Re: Meredith Vieira, Today Show Crew Play Rock Band ...Badly

terrible, sure, but they were positive and seemed to be having fun.

That was... terrible.

Re: Meredith Vieira, Today Show Crew Play Rock Band ...Badly

I like the way that of all the non gaming media outlets I've seen play Rock Band, Guitar Hero, Pump it Up or DDR, this was the first time it seemed like they played enough to get the hang of it before playing it live. Usually "Clank clank wail *female anchor screams* clank whizz bonk FAIL!" It's almost as though they genuinely enjoyed it.

Re: Meredith Vieira, Today Show Crew Play Rock Band ...Badly

The new rockband has a 'no-fail' option built in.  Switch it on and no matter how bad you play you can still get through the whole song.

The best thing about that video was what appeared to be examples of the figures you'll be able to buy of your characters at the 2:48 mark.

Re: Meredith Vieira, Today Show Crew Play Rock Band ...Badly

Looked like they had fun, and thats what it is all about

Re: Meredith Vieira, Today Show Crew Play Rock Band ...Badly

I don't think the crowd shared their enthusiasm though..

Re: Meredith Vieira, Today Show Crew Play Rock Band ...Badly

Bravo to the Today Show for not ragging on video games and actually picking one up and seeing what the fuss is about!  I'm so glad they didn't go off on it like some tool musicians who say "this is rotting our children's minds, why not play a real guitar?"

Re: Meredith Vieira, Today Show Crew Play Rock Band ...Badly

I saw this this morning. Wondering if it would get here. It was really bad. The best part came when some kid was substituted for Matt Lauer. The kid just stood there playing the game, no bobbing or anything.

And yet, not quite as embarrassingly painful as Nintendo's demo of Wii Music.

Re: Meredith Vieira, Today Show Crew Play Rock Band ...Badly

Agreed.

Re: Meredith Vieira, Today Show Crew Play Rock Band ...Badly

Wow Meredith is going to replace Katie Courich?  Awsome.  She is a class act and I could care less how badly she plays Rock Band.  xD

Re: Meredith Vieira, Today Show Crew Play Rock Band ...Badly

katie courich works for CBS, this was MSNBC. That replacement already happened. If I'm wrong on this just tell me.

Also, I lol'd a lot at this, I was hoping they would wind up failing or something though...

 

 

Re: Meredith Vieira, Today Show Crew Play Rock Band ...Badly

You're right, Meredith replaced Katie on NBC's Today show a long time ago... and Katie went elsewhere.  I wish they had a little closer up shot (and story about) the figureens (sp?) you can make of your rockers... It looked like Harmonix made a quick set to look like Today Show's cast (they were on the TV stand and camera quickly panned by), I kinda wanna see those things.

Sleaker@EZK - one of the bigger things is that since Mojang has owned Bukkit for 2 years now, people contributing to the project have basically been doing work for them pro-bono. On top of never formalizing support. They hid the fact probably to prevent support08/21/2014 - 9:07am

SleakerMinecraft community exploded again today. Apparently Mojang owns all of Bukkit, and never put out a statement saying as such 2 years ago when they acquired them. I have to say, their transition from indie has been rough.08/21/2014 - 8:52am
