Way back in October of 2022, I wrote a blog article about “The Rise And Fall (again) of G4”. In that blog, I mentioned how our podcast had gotten mentioned on an episode of Attack of the Show Vibe Check, but said the story would be for another day….
….well that day has arrived.
As I had mentioned before, I was super excited when G4 returned. Not having cable, I do all of my viewing through streaming or Twitch, so I was a regular on their Twitch channel. Due to work scheduling, the shows I watched the most were “Invitation to Party”, “Attack of the Show”, and “Attack of the Show : Vibe Check”.
I had gotten really good and really fast at screen-shotting things from Twitch to post on Twitter as I would make silly commentary about.. whatever it was they were talking about at the time.. but on this episode of Vibe Check, Kevin, Gina, and Will were playing a game of “Would You Rather”… and the question was, ‘Would you rather watch your parents have sex forever, or have sex with your parents once’. As the discussion devolved even further (yes… further…), I believe it was Will who joked that the new G4 tag line had been changed from “We Never Stopped Playing” to “We Never Stopped Fucking”. I immediately dug up a picture of G4’s tag line that they had in neon in their offices…
and turned it into this…..
which I tweeted out to them with the caption of “I like what you’ve done with the place….”.
The beauty of their twitch stream was that during a commercial break, the cameras were still on on the stream, so you could see them checking their phones and such. Well, Gina checks her phone and starts laughing before turning her phone to show Kevin, who also starts laughing but… as she turned her phone I thought…”wait.. was that my twitter post?” They come back from break.. and the rest… as they say.. is history.
I’m still sad to know G4 is gone, but I’m glad I got to see them return, and this clip will live on forever.
