Imagine. . . waking up the CEO of a car alarm company with the sound of a dozen car alarms going off outside his home. . . sending someone in a chicken suit to volunteer his crime-fighting abilities to local authorities. . .hiring a chorus line to sing songs of tolerance to the KKK. . .
Michael Moore, creator and host of the Emmy Award-winning TV Nation series, did all that - and a lot more.Daring to turn this country on its ear with outrageous, irreverent stunts, Moore went in search of his own brand of gentle justice.
In Adventures in a TV Nation, he recounts some of the show's most memorable episodes, including the CEO Challenge - sure they can run huge corporations, but can the CEO of Phillip Morris roll a cigarette; has Baron Hilton ever made a bed; can the Chairman of Citibank use an ATM? Moore and Company set out to see if your average CEO really knows his product.
Also included on this audio are some of the ones that kissed the cutting room floor. Though TV Nation got a lot of leeway, there were some subjects the networks felt were too racy to air, like the man in search of small sized condoms, a re-enactment of the LA Riots (if Civil War fanatics do it, why can't we?), and a where are they now? segment on the key players in the Savings and Loan Scandal.
Always willing to question authority, confront ignorance, and lampoon societal mores, Michael Moore, Kathleen Glynn, and the TV Nation team will have you in stitches as they careen down the highways of America trying to make it a better'and a funnier'place to live.
