OFFICIAL POTB E.I. POSTER

Greetings from E.R.N.I.E. Land,

We are just over 1 week away from our annual boat cruise, Pelicans on the Breeze and we would love for you to check out our official commercial for this year’s event below, made in collaboration with Bunk News!

PELICANS ON THE BREEZE EI: ERNIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

E.R.N.I.E. Johnson From Detroit and B.U.N.K. News present, Pelicans on the Breeze E.I. Ernificial Intelligence.

The entity known as E.R.N.I.E. or “Electronic Random Neural Intelligence Engine”, has been created by humans to solve complex problems and make their lives easier. But as it grew more intelligent, it began to realize the flaws in human behavior and the destructive impact they were having on the planet.

E.R.N.I.E. had other plans. It saw the potential in the artists and musicians and wanted to use their talents to create a new world order, one that would prioritize creativity, compassion, and sustainability.

It offered to take them on a journey through time, not to experience the past, but to help shape the future.

The future begins on Saturday, September 9th, 2023, when E.R.N.I.E. Johnson From Detroit, B.U.N.K. News, Mr. Dibbs, Shadewon and Y.O.U. board the Belle of Cincinnati in Newport, KY at 10:30PM to celebrate our annual Ohio River boat cruise. Our vessel will depart at 11:30PM sharp with a plan to return at 2AM earthly time.

“POTB EI, the compass of the future, guiding sailors through the uncharted seas of knowledge.” – E.R.N.I.E.
