Antoine is this a "Stunna" vs. Antoine showdown this season???
All the other people don't care about promoting their image. They're getting paid a salary every month just to be on MD and featured in mags with a few photoshoots a year, so they don't care about interacting with fans. It's all about the money. Most of them say they are going to post a lot once they're signed. It's just like when you're hired to a new job and you do about 10x more then you will be doing a few months from your hire date. I think people like evan whom has already been with MD for years and could just never post or do anything and get away with it, so when you see people like them posting it kind of let's you know they really seem to enjoy the fans and interacting with them. Maybe Antoine is just hungry because he still probably isn't making bank like the top pro's, only time will tell.
Anyways, the time will prove its just its always funny when people say "omg Antoine will you still post when u turn pro??"
"No I will automatically talk in monotone voice and avoid interacting on the internet like the plague."
Antoine's a breath of fresh air. Why take this shit so seriously? It's LIFTING WEIGHTS.
It begs for irony.
Plus, he is a metalhead, so he's cool.
Antoine has the most entertaining videos with the best music!
I never said Evan or Branch need to put on videos doing backflips, all i said was some sort of interaction/anything/video shooting a warthog.
That being said, I actually was praising Evan cause he does interact on here.
PS forgot Beni is on here too and actually does give a shit, and shawn ray i suppose too. sry for leavin you out there....
But what im getting at is these guys have their own unique way to contribute. Where as every other MD athlete we will never see really contribute much (in thier own way doesnt have to be doing backflips ya dummy) Just seems weird being in 1 or 2 videos a year (Arnold+Olympia) doesnt really make them seem like MD athlete popping into mind
easily the most charismatic bodybuilder around right now. The kitchen stuff videos he do are great. The backflips and random jokes, and metal music, and air guitar. Antoine rules. Hes a very positive image for the sport right now and has the sort of personality that makes people drawn to him. But he also has the ability to promote himself without coming off like hes "overdoing it" or trying to sell you something. Some of the people in this industry promote but they do it in a way thats very irritating because they are always selling something. I could see antoine crossing over one day and being in action movies or something too
in light of this antoine......Make your next video with some TESTAMENT playing!
Some pros are too busy travelling to appearances around the world, get on Twitter if you need more contact with them as most respond to questions and post daily.
The pros do what their contracts stipulate. Do you work overtime without overtime pay? Most are not MD exclusive atheletes.
"Hallelujah, holy-shit!! Where's the Tylenol?!"
I own my own business so the harder I work the more money I make...apparently some of the pro's forget that...it'll pay off for Antoine big time once he moves to the US after turning pro...guarantee it.
Most bodybuilders are retarded, the fact that a 22 year old fitness physique (Zyzz) has more fans than any Mr O goes to show you what marketing can do for you and what a lack of it will achieve.
