Performance time: Teresa is appropriately hammy in the little skit intro, with her and Arsenio pretending to be stranded on a dark road. Aubrey, of course, thought it was horrible, saying it's so sad when people aren't as good as everything as you are. Ugh. When it comes time for the song, Aubrey tarted up but good as a cheerleader. The whole performance seems manic and messy and unfocused, and Arsenio's rap seems really out of place and jank. Also? One of their lyrics about Good Sam is that he's "always humble and responsible," which ... lord knows I need humility in my roadside assistance program.
The Good Sam exec loved the energy/enthusiasm of the performance, says the jingle was catchy, and liked the use of the mascot. He didn't love Aubrey's cheerleader outfit, saying it was too revealing.
Obviously, Clay is totes going to sing. Meanwhile, Dayana thinks "jingle" means "Christmas," which leaves her wide open for mockery from Lisa. Clay interviews that he would have been a more natural fit for PM. I'm not sure why the people with the talent affinity think they'd be the best PM. I would think a good PM on a task would be able to direct the talent without having to BE the talent, but whatever.
The team's idea is a kind of 1960s Four Seasons pastiche, though Dayana keeps straying from the topic, trying to '80s things up (she wants a little Duran Duran style). Lisa and Clay are like, "Um, no," and Dayana interviews that she's feeling steamrolled. The Good Sam exec's advice to the team is to not play it safe (I guess having a Four Seasons-type group perform "Hungry Like the Wolf" would not be very safe, so maybe Dayana's onto something). Lisa thinks they're wasting a lot of time "teaching" Dayana about music styles. Dayana plays the martyr to the cameras, saying there's no time for her to stick up for herself against mean old Lisa and Clay. Dayana is driving everyone CRAZY by micromanaging the music and insisting that Lisa let her co-write the songs.
