Content That Stings
I just had to chime in on this whole kid who got “tased” (shot with a Taser gun) by a Philadelphia cop as he ran onto the field at Citizen’s Bank Park during a Philadelphia Phillies game.
Here’s two video versions of the same event. Both are considered content but how is the event perceived when you see the ESPNized version vs. the fan from the right field seats raw video and audio?
PHILLIES FAN VERSION
Personally, I think the second one tells the better story especially if you are a familiar with Philadelphia. The fans go from screaming “Tase him!” to stunned silence that he was actually tased, to booing the fact that he got tased to then applauding the kid even though what he did was just plain stupid. (By the way, I love Philadelphia and its sports fans because there is nothing like them on the planet.)
The same event with two different content presentations. Is the story the same or different? You tell me.
