AUSTIN, Texas (FOX 7 Austin) - Oh SXSW: So much to do and see.
A lot of events you need an actual "South By" badge for but not The "Garden of Earthly Delights."
"Well the apocalypse is coming. It's coming on May 31st and we're here to enjoy the rest of Austin while it's still here," said Elisabeth Daniels with Amazon Prime Video.
It's a showcase for "Good Omens," a series premiering on Amazon Prime Video in May starring Michael Sheen and David Tennant -- basically a tale of angels, demons and like she said...the apocalypse. "We've got everything from sushi to barbecue to 'Hell Hound' puppies waiting for homes, they're actually adoptable dogs," Daniels said.
By the way I guess these events are called "activations" now so moving on to HBO's "Game of Thrones" activation called "Bleed For The Throne." Sorry, badge-holders only.
Not only is it a dream come true for Game of Thrones fans it's also an American Red Cross blood drive.
"For us it was looking at 'What's the show about? It's about sacrifice, it's about devotion.’ How can we rally the realm of Game of Thrones fans, really to do something for the greater good?" said Steven Cardwell with HBO.
At the ADP and Wired activation for badge holders called "Breaking Barriers," Fox 7 Austin Digital Content Creator Donny Wong and I got to do just that. "At ADP we're envisioning a future workplace that is without barriers and although we've come a long way we still have barriers in the workplace," said Lorraine Barber-Miller with ADP.
So Donny and I suited up in protective gear. We went into a smash booth to metaphorically break barriers. "Pay gap, gender inequality, work life balance or outdated work systems," she said.
Donny broke the glass ceiling and I grabbed a bat and went after a VCR "Office Space" style.
