JOYRIDE is the comedy CD that benefits the fight against drunk driving. It was created by veteran radio ad guy and independent filmmaker, Paul Kinney. (see radiofilms.com)
Having produced funny radio commercials for the better part of his life and been limited to a minute or less, Paul decided that is was time to “break out” and create something without having to say, “On sale now,” “Upon credit approval,” or “Some restrictions apply.” He also wanted something both adults and kids (he has 2 boys) would enjoy while in the car or in bed at night trying to get to sleep. Hence, JOYRIDE was born.
Inspired by commercials and characters he’s created for Jaguar (The Wire), Mercedes-Benz (Reunion), and episodes from his own personal life (Jacque of All Trade), JOYRIDE is a collection of a humorous scenes including:
THE WIRE – The story of a young boy who goes undercover to discover the cost of a neighbor’s kitchen remodel.
PAINTBALL COMMANDOS – A squad of concerned dads rescue their wives addicted to multi-level marketing.
OLD WOMAN AND THE SHOE - Grandma’s stinky feet paralyze a Department Store’s shoe department.
MR. AIRPORT FRIENDLY – Everything comes to a halt when a mysterious metal causes a delay at a security checkpoint.
JACQUE OF ALL TRADES - He’s French and he cuts his children’s hair, and that’s just the beginning ...
SOAP-A-DOPES – A sudden downpour forces two men to dry their clothes in a nearby Laundromat.
SUN WORSHIPER - A secluded South Pacific beach attracts the beautiful and the nerdy.
HIT IN THE HEAD - When you’re on the run from a woman, watch where you stand!
DRIVE THRU LIVING - In a world where you can do just about anything from your car ...
GARAGE SALE - Persistent Early Birds arrive before the crack of dawn
REUNION – A high school reunion paralyzes a nervous bank manager.
SVEDKA, MASSAGE THERAPIST - A former Russian athlete finds employment (and love) working on cruise ship.
The humor is refreshing without being rude or degrading, and the “film quality” sound design is nothing less than spectacular.
