Avengers Unite

Guests in attendance at California Adventure on April 5, 2019 were surprised to see that members of the cast of Avengers: Endgame were in attendance. Disney CEO, Bob Iger was joined by Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Brie Larson, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, and Paul Rudd to help launch a new charity initiative called “Avengers: The Universe Unites”.

The charity event supports the philanthropic efforts of the Walt Disney Company  via their Disney Team of Heroes. Disney donated $1 million to the Starlight Children’s Foundation and another $4 million in toys and products was collected from LEGO, Funko, Amazon, and Hasbro for children’s hospitals across the nation.

Is it live?

We started off the podcast talking about an old commercial that asked the question “Is it live or is it Memorex?” This commercial was meant to give audiophiles the sense that the quality of recording was so good that it felt live. Later on the company went on to create video recording tapes as well and the slogan continued. 

Until next time! °o°
