Real (and Fake) Shows Coming to Quibi
Quibi, short for “quick bites” debuts in April. You might remember the multiple ads for it during the Super Bowl. Quibi is (yet another) streaming service that you’ll be asked to pay for. It’s different from other streaming platforms in that it’s specifically for mobile phones, episodes will be just 10 minutes long and it’s marketed toward people in the 18-34 age demographic (aka: The Goldfish Generation for their unnaturally short attention spans).
Well, maybe Quibi will offer great content. Maybe. Some of the shows sound just a tiny bit absurd. That’s the point of today’s game. In each round you’ll be given an ACTUAL show that will be available on Quibi along with a completely made-up, intentionally ridiculous show premise. You have to determine which is which, answers are at the end of this post and IT’S TIME TO PLAY QUIBI OR FIBBIE!
(Remember, each round consist of one REAL show and one FAKE Show).
