Did PSB contribute to the Emu "bubble"?

#1 Post by York Minster » Sun 30 Dec 2018, 7:46 pm

I read an interesting article in the Economist today. It talked about Emu's and how popular the became in the 90's. 1993 was the peak of the "Emu bubble". 1993 is also the year of the Can you forgive her? video featuring Emu's and their floating illuminescent eggs. By the late 90's the bubble had burst, the value of Emus was down to a couple pounds a piece, and they were left to become feral or were killed with clubs. Where are the emus from the video now, if they are still alive? (They live 30 years). What was the source of those Emus? Did PSB contribute to their popularity or were they just a reaction?
And tryin' to figure out what happened to 'Germaine Propaine'
"He couldn't have fell off that hard" Ain't no way
"What happened to the way you was rappin' when you was scandalous
That Canibus turned into a television evangelist"
Plus he raps with his regular voice [BOOSH! BOOSH!]
[BOOSH! BOOSH!] (What was that?) Pet Shop Boys

I think there was an earlier precedent.

You may as well ask if Home and dry increased mice sales.

It definitely did.
