Hot 97 Parody Contest

Hot 97 - a New York Hip Hop station got into some trouble a few weeks ago. The station played a racist song mocking the deaths of 200,000 people in the Tsunami to the tune of "We are the World". The news of this spread around the world and was an embarrassment to the radio station and the city of New York. To make matters even worse the morning host, Miss Jones, told an Asian member of the crew, "I know you feel you're superior because you're Asian, but you're not." and co-host Todd Lyn added this gem: "I'm going to start shooting Asians."

Sobek, had an idea to turn the tables and mock the Hot 97 and their racist DJs. A good idea to make fun of someone will never be passed over on this site. There are no rules or formats, just come up with an idea mocking the radio station and/or its ethically-challenged DJs. The winners will be chosen and posted by Sobek and myself on Friday (2/4).

Here are some ideas: Hot 97 logo photoshop, new promotional contests, new web banners, a new Hot 97 slogan, new nicknames for the morning DJs, and so on. You may post entries to the comments or email them to me.
