Morgans Continues Hating On the Recession With 'Recess Is On'
Yes, we already know Morgan's Hotel Group throws curse words at the recession. Like any hotel chain right now, they are likely not enjoying what's going on people are not traveling so much or shelling out the big bucks as of late. They've joined every other hotel ever and have responded by offering deals, but they're taking it one step further and, uh, distracting you with artsy stuff.
They've just launched RecessIsOn (get it? Recession/Recess/It's on?) and the recession-hating tie-in is kind of confusing. It's a second website featuring "Recess Sessions," which are "a series of eight original music videos shot in cinéma vérité style." Specifically:
Each video is set in the rich environments of Morgans' hotels and includes three separate segments with a musical performance, interview and footage of the artists playing on property. All of the content is intimately shot, previously unreleased and available through www.recessison.com.
The whole thing is kinda-loosely connected to the recession (we're not so sure we're understanding the tie-in) apparently, the vids are keeping with the company's defiance against the recession because they "celebrate the idea that you never know what is going on behind closed doors at Morgans' hotels and gives their guests permission to explore and to play again."
Eh, or with videos featuring artists like Au Revoir Simone at the Hudson and Miss Derringer at Mondrian LA, they give you something to look at and listen to when business at the ol' workplace is slow.
