Complete this sentence: "Spark was taped before a live..."

Each week, Spark starts with a robot saying, "This is your life. This is your digital life." But why should a robot get so much airtime?

Starting next week, we're going to try something new. We're going to put some voices from the Spark community front and centre in the opening of Spark. And we need your help. Remember all those sitcoms that announced that they were filmed in front of a live studio audience? You know, "Cheers was Filmed Before a Live Studio Audience?" Well, we want to do something similar for Spark next week.

Here's what we need you to:

  1. Dial 1-877-34-SPARK (1-877-347-7275 toll free in Canada). For best results, call from a quiet room with a landline.
  2. Wait for the beep, then say who you are, where you're from, and give us your most creative re-imagining of the opening to Cheers. "Hi, I'm _____ from _____. Spark was taped before a live _____ _____."

So, for example, I might say, "Hi, I'm Dan Misener from Lower Sackville, Nova Scotia. Spark was taped in front of a live studio audience... of robots."

Be creative! What could Spark be taped in front of?

  • A live fail whale?
  • A litter of LOLcats?
  • A benevolent creature from the seventh dimension?

So what are you waiting for? Give us a call, and we'll put some of the best entries on the air.
