Chapter 1652: This Is My Original Motive
Huang Sibo frowned and pondered for a moment. Then, he asked, “How should we deal with this?”
Zhu Xiaoce shook his head slightly. “We are helpless about this.”
“That’s because the other party’s attack is very ingenious. It is at a special time point where both sides’ strengths are unbalanced. Using such a special method to attack is equivalent to taking advantage of the situation.”
“In the face of such a general trend, any explanation under the other party’s framework would be pale and weak.”
“Unless we can jump out of the other party’s framework, but that is easier said than done.”
“Another important point is Tengda Corporation’s rapid development. It has reached an advantage in many fields. This trend of monopoly will indeed cause many netizens to worry.”
“This is the inevitable result of the company’s development. That’s because the larger the company is, the more resources they have, and the greater the energy they have. Naturally, it will cause vigilance.”
“There’s almost no solution to this. Other large companies cannot solve this. As for Tengda… I don’t dare to jump to the conclusion that Boss Pei cannot solve it. After all, Boss Pei’s thinking is far beyond that of ordinary people. However, I can only say that this is the most serious challenge that Tengda is facing at the moment.”
“Tengda is no longer facing a specific company but the hearts of people.”
Huang Sibo nodded.
In fact, it was already very impressive that Tengda Corporation could maintain the balance in the battle of public opinion under such circumstances. This was the result of Tengda’s continuous good deeds to accumulate reputation among netizens.
Any other company would have been defeated and collapsed if they were in such a situation.
It was very easy for Tengda to win over a specific company. However, it was too difficult to win over people’s hearts and make everyone believe that Tengda Corporation could still maintain its original beliefs even after reaching an absolute dominance over the market. It would still maintain the image of the dragon slaying warrior and not transform into an evil dragon.
However, after some consideration, Huang Sibo said, “I think the situation is very serious, but I cannot say that we have no possibility of winning.”
“That’s because Boss Pei had already made a plan.”
“Boss Pei must be preparing for today’s situation by spending so much effort to create the movie and game ‘The future you choose’ and arrange for Tengda Corporation to be the antagonist.”
“However, until now, we are still not sure if Boss Pei has any backup plans.”
“Under such circumstances, we can only trust Boss Pei.”
At this stage in the battle of public opinion, the specific tactics were no longer important. What played a decisive role was the strategy.
Whoever could stand higher and see further would be able to obtain the final victory.
Until now, Tengda Corporation might be at a disadvantage, but as long as Boss Pei’s plan was in place, no one dared to say that there was no possibility of turning the tables.
At the same time, in a small cafe near Tengda Corporation’s headquarters.
Qiao Liang was anxiously waiting for Boss Pei to arrive.
After the movie was released, Qiao Liang had been cooped up at home and pulling out his hair for two whole days.
In the end, he did not achieve much!
Qiao Liang had actually produced a video to interpret the game content after the release of the game ‘The Future You Choose’.
Qiao Liang was very satisfied with that video and the response was very good.
What’s more, at the end of the video, Qiao Liang made a bold prediction that his video would play a fable after the movie was released. The theme of the movie should not be far from the content that he had analyzed.
However, Qiao Liang realized that he seemed to have said that too early after the movie was released.
The theme of the game and movie did not seem to match.
The names were the same, and the theme ideas expressed were all problems of monopoly by large companies and the division of rich and poor. However, the performance and entry points of the two could be said to be worlds apart. In other words, other than the theme being similar, everything else could not be relied on together.
There was no way to make a video out of this connection, let alone make Qiao Liang realize the awesomeness he had boasted about previously.
Qiao Liang felt helpless seeing that many people were still urging him to update and waiting for him to release a video to interpret the game and movie together.
Thus, he decided to consult Boss Pei.
As the source of inspiration for games and movies and people who understood the Tengda spirit the most, there should be no one in the world who understood the meaning of games and movies better than Boss Pei.
Of course, Qiao Liang did not expect Boss Pei to drag out these connotations with him. He only wanted to obtain some inspiration and inspiration through a simple exchange with Boss Pei. He wanted to better complete this video and refute some comments online.
Until now, the trend on the internet had been led astray by Vinci Media. The target of both movies was becoming closer and closer to Tengda Corporation. This was a very dangerous phenomenon.
To Qiao Liang, it was definitely on Tengda Corporation’s side. That was because he was deeply infected by Boss Pei’s charm. He believed that Boss Pei was the person who could trap capital in a cage.
It would not deteriorate as long as Boss Pei was in Tengda Corporation.
However, ordinary people in the outside world did not know this. They might be able to feel this temperament from Tengda Corporation’s style, but they had never seen Boss Pei himself. They had not worked together. Under such circumstances, it was normal to doubt Tengda Corporation.
Qiao Liang did not have much hope for this meeting. He only sent a message to Boss Pei and briefly explained his thoughts. He did not expect Boss Pei to readily agree and arrange to meet at this small cafe.
Qiao Liang was already prepared. At that moment, he felt like a journalist who was specialized in interviews. He wanted to find out the truth as much as possible through his conversation with Boss Pei.
Pei Qian hummed as he walked towards the cafe.
The current situation was developing well for him.
Vinci Media had achieved its goal. The target of both movies was showing signs of approaching Tengda Corporation. This was great news for Pei Qian.
However, Teacher Qiao’s threat had not been resolved.
The videos released by the game previously had almost been ruined. Fortunately, Vinci Media was very clear-headed. They focused the battle of public opinion on the movie, and the game’s attention was relatively not that high.
However, Teacher Qiao could upload another video at any time and combine the content of the game and the movie. He had to be wary of that.
At first, Pei Qian did not want to meet him. However, on further thought, if he allowed Teacher Qiao to remain in his room and think hard, he might think of something ridiculous.
Since that was the case, he might as well take the initiative to meet Teacher Qiao and tell him his true thoughts.
The truth might be hurtful but Pei Qian felt that he had to slowly let Qiao Liang accept this painful fact.
It would be even better if he could use Teacher Qiao’s words to convey his true meaning to all netizens.
Pei Qian sat opposite Qiao Liang after arriving at the cafe. Both of them were very familiar with each other. Thus, they did not exchange much pleasantries and quickly got down to business.
Qiao Liang was well-prepared. He said, “Boss Pei, thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to answer my confusion. Don’t worry, I’ll only ask a few simple questions this time. I won’t ask in too much detail, and I won’t touch the meaning of the design.”
“After all, there are some problems that require blank spaces for creators. I understand that.”
Generally speaking, creators were not willing to interpret their works in too much detail.
The reason was very simple. Artistic works were a medium, a channel to convey thoughts. Sometimes, it was precisely because there were blank spaces and many ways to interpret that it was beautiful. Once the creator came out to interpret it himself, it would destroy the beauty of blank spaces.
Obviously, this was Boss Pei’s usual style. He would never interpret his own game or movie. Instead, he handed this important task to all netizens to complete together.
Thus, Qiao Liang did not intend to ask in too much detail this time. He only wanted to ask a few key questions to answer his doubts.
Pei Qian felt a little regretful.
In fact, Teacher Qiao could have asked in more detail, and he would have given a more detailed answer. However, this answer might have collapsed Teacher Qiao’s values.
Pei Qian changed his mind. That was good. There was room for both of them.
His answer might be very straightforward and could make Teacher Qiao accept the cruel truth, but it was not too direct. It would be a heavy blow to Teacher Qiao.
Thus, he nodded. “Alright, ask away.”
Qiao Liang pondered for a moment and asked the first question. “Do you have any deeper connection between the game ‘Future’ and the movie at the beginning of its creation?”
Pei Qian shook his head. “No. The only connection between the two is that the background of the entire world is roughly similar. Tengda Corporation is playing the role of the antagonist in it. Apart from that, there is no deliberate connection.”
Qiao Liang was stunned. The first question confused him.
That was because he had preconceived notion that there must be a deeper connection between the game and the movie. There were many Easter eggs that could influence each other in the plot.
However, Boss Pei rejected him unexpectedly.
Qiao Liang frowned slightly and asked, “Then, the target of the game and movie should not be Tengda Corporation itself, but some invisible existence, right?”
After a moment of silence, Pei Qian said, “Actually, I prefer everyone to think that Tengda Corporation is the target of everyone’s criticism.”
Qiao Liang was stunned again because Boss Pei’s answer was beyond his expectations.
What’s more, this question blocked many of Qiao Liang’s subsequent questions.
Qiao Liang had originally thought that Tengda Corporation was only a finger-produced image in the game and in the movie. It was not a specific image. Many of its judgments were based on this point. He did not expect Boss Pei to reject this point directly.
Qiao Liang frowned slightly and asked, “However, many people now have negative feelings for Tengda Corporation because of these two movies. They even treat Tengda Corporation as an imaginary enemy and predict the evil consequences of Tengda Corporation monopolizing many industries in the future. Is this within your expectations, Boss Pei?”
Pei Qian smiled. “That’s my original goal for creating this movie and game.”
