Wouldn’t you like to watch KUNT on your television? Of course you would. I know I’m already one of KUNT’s biggest fans, and they haven’t broadcast a single program yet. Who doesn’t like a little KUNT now and then?
We all know why Kevin Bae, a VP at KM Communications, selected these long‑unused call signs. Can you think of an easier way to get a low‑powered digital television station that hasn’t even been built yet on the front page of Google News or on the Reuters news feed? Can you think of an easier way to sell tee-shirts and get the attention of the internet generation by co-opting a dirty word? And to top it off, Bae showed his lolcat proficiency by obtaining one of the best acronyms ever invented on the Tubes!
I’m sure someone already owns the rights to KOCK, otherwise Bae would’ve gotten that one, too. It’d be the perfect sister station to KUNT, don’t you agree? They’d fit perfectly together, with the old‑school hard reporting of KOCK fitting right in with the soft news and fluffiness of KUNT’s news team.
Before you ask: No, I couldn’t think of any other cheesy KOCK and KUNT jokes to include here, but I sure did try. Kudos, Kevin Bae. You’re an advertising genius and I can’t believe the KUNTs got away with this.
