Update on Our Relationship with Hasbro

DerpySquad and Plaster of Derpy Hooves News took part in a press conference with Markarian, Bejoty, and Roy G. Biv of EverfreeNW; Klisk of BronyCon; and Sethisto of Equestria Daily, organized by Chef Sandy and Apple Cider of the Bronyville podcast, concerning a conversation Markarian had with the head of Hasbro’s PR and marketing. Of course we only know what this Hasbro official has told Markarian. Anything beyond that, be it Hasbro’s underlying strategy or further steps, is necessarily speculation.

After the break you’ll find a short summary of the conference call, purloined from Plaster’s post on Derpy Hooves News. He also points out that “the Derpy problem is not settled 100%” and that you should kindly “disregard AC’s comment at the very end of the video.” Nothing said in this video should be construed as having anything to do or any bearing on the Derpy situation. Save Derpy!

We just got out of a press conference with the Co-Chair of EverfreeNW who had called up the Brand Manager at Hasbro. You may have heard that the Voice Actors and Talent were all on lockdown through Bronyville’s latest episode.

Good news! Hasbro isn’t being evil here. There is a simple explanation for all of this. They are protecting the Voice Talent. There are so many people desiring contact, wanting interviews and appearances from them that they need to sit down as a company and flesh out a policy to run by because they cannot simply cater to everyone and stretch the VA’s too thin. They need some time to work this out. They want us to know that they are looking at ways to better deal with our crazy corner of the internet. We have heard good things about this call and we expect good things from this relationship. This is also the contact that we will hear about anything regarding Derpy.

So, with that out of the way. We ALL need you guys to not go and bother Hasbro at all. The situation is under control and any more people bugging them will only worsen the situation. It’s like a parent that says “Maybe” and if you bug them enough and it will turn into a solid “No”. I’m sure most of you know what that’s like.

This is to dispell and put out any fires. Do not act unnecessarily.
