Episode 48 Always Blow On The Pie!

Episode 48 Always Blow On The Pie!

thats right girls, dont work hard at school, you're just going to end up at home cooking and cleaning for your husband! That was a 1960's commercial for Suzy Homemaker, a bunch of fake household items, ovens, blenders, irons etc. How could these have been the good old days, when girls were molded into housewives! I'd much rather todays commercials, for videogames where you kill prostitutes!

Anyway, welcome to episode 48 of Jay Wont dart's podcast, Always blow on the pie!

Im having fun having two podcasts, although Im not sure how often each will get updated, perhaps I'll get stuck in one or the other for a few episodes in a row.

This episode, a New Zealand pop culture moment thats exploded online. Always Blow On The Pie!

It came from the New Zealand police show called Police ten 7

In the famous clip, a police officer finds a suspicious looking man, and gives him some rather odd, rather New Zealand advice. Heres the full version of the clip.

Safer Communities together is a New Zealand police slogan.

I love it, so far the most popular youtube clip has had about 100,000 views, thats a lot for a New Zealand clip. Mr Vintage, a New Zealand online t shirt store has made a "Always Blow on the pie" t shirt. Remix songs have been made, and even mainstream media have covered the event.

Once more, heres the main part of the clip,

And here are some of the best remixes, taken from youtube. I've linked to these in the shownotes which you can see on my blog or in the lyrics section of this episode.

First, Blow on the Pie, the musical,

and my favourite of the remixes, the rap version.

I love the rap version best.

I just felt like I had to cover Always Blow on the Pie, its sure to become part of New Zealands pop culture alongside heavyweight boxer David Tua saying "o for oresome" on a gameshow

The policeman in the clip was found, and recently on tv, heres a clip from the Breakfast show.

Thank you for listening.

You can find the script for this episode, as well as downloads for every episode of Jay Wont darts podcast at
