Episode Summary

Power Marketing
The Upright Citizens Brigade controls Alan Greenspan during his "State of the Economy" speech, in an attempt to change the national currency to "Oak Leaves", but Greenspan throws the speech. "Power Marketing" siminars try to push people into having "New Brains" which are "powerful, explosive, and a real competitor." "Power Marketing" also features Astronaut Mike Berchwood from the "Saigon Suicide Squad" episode. Next, we discover "Hendley Architecture", the architectural firm that exists in an entirely open woodland, or, as they claim, a building designed with "Hyper Minimalism." Cut's back to the same "Power Marketing" speech as before. Now, we're shown a golf game between an advertising executive who is looking for success tips, and his brother. His brother advises him to stick every penny he gets up his ass, and then spend it, so he has the edge in any situation, since everyone is handling pennies which have been up his ass. Moves back to "Power Marketing" and the new brain you can have for only "$800 Dollars A Day!" Golfers invade the "Hyper Minimalist" architectural firm's building, and has a bout with security. Meanwhile, pirates inspired by the "Power Marketing" siminar's new brain philosophy attempt to bury treasure in the executive lounge, and the "Power Marketing" siminar invades the conference room.moreless
