Citizen presents: Marvel Power Pose Contest LIVE at NYCC 2019!


– What’s up, everybody? Yeah! Hey, everybody. I am Lorraine Cink. And I am Langston Belton,
here from Marvel Live. And we are giving
you Power Pose, presented today by Citizen. Yes. We are going to
play an awesome game. Power Pose is the
game where we race to hit as many Super Hero poses
as possible in 60 seconds. Yes. And we are not playing
this game alone. Please give a big
round of applause, help us welcome two
friends that know how to make the Marvel watches
by Citizen look real good. Please welcome Sarah
Merrill and Josh Peck! Yay! Wow.
– Oh, yeah. LORRAINE: Oh, my gosh. Did Captain Marvel just
jump out of a poster? Hi. Hello, hello. Sarah, your cosplay is amazing. Thank you. Right? Josh, you are cosplaying as– a fanboy? I am a fanboy. I think this is, like–
just sort of, like, Captain America on his day off. LORRIANE: Oh, OK.
– Day off Cap. LORRIANE: All right.
Off duty Cap. Dig it.
– I feel good about it. It’s fine. LANGSTON: And you look great. You look very relaxed. And you look ready for action. But ready to take someone down. So I want to know what you
all have been up to this year at New York Comic Con. What you been getting into? Oh, so Citizen and
I go way, way, back so we thought it would be
fun to partner up today. I’ve been walking the
floor, meeting a lot of you, asking you guys
about your costumes. And I think I’ve
helped some people walk away with some new Marvel
watches by Citizen, so– LORRIANE: Ooh. Yes. Listen, I have not been
entrusted to give any Citizen watches away, cause
I’m pretty sure they know I’ll just steal them all. I would probably steal them all. But I’m actually– I’m
rocking some of the newest limited edition Citizen
watches with the partnership with Marvel. We got the Marvel 80th
anniversary watch right here, with all the vintage logos. We love a fun vintage
legacy watch, right? And then we’ve got the
vintage Spider-Man watch. It’s super dope. I mean, limited edition. All, like, some of the original
incarnations of Spider-Man. It’s super dope. I’m loving it. I feel handsomer with it on. You didn’t ask, but I feel
comfortable sharing that. Yeah. Well, it’s like
your super power, so it makes you
bright and shiny. I get it.
– Yes! Thank you so much.
– Right? Of course. Well, that’s all good. So are you all
ready to help us out with the game of Power Pose? Oh, yes. Oh, yeah. Oh, I’m so excited. I think we’re going to actually
give one of our winners a brand new Marvel
watch by Citizen. Ooh! What? Good. I love the energy. Yes. [LAUGHTER] And I hear that these are
very good for Power Pose because they Eco Drive. They do. They are powered by light alone. Batteries? We don’t know her. We have no need for batteries
with our Citizen watches. LORRIANE: Goodbye, batteries. You’re not needed here. No, thanks. Yeah, no thanks, but– They always let you down. That– but not this one? No, thanks. Mm-mm. Plenty of light. All right. Are you guys ready
to play Power Pose? Yeah! Well, you guys can’t
do it all by yourselves. Mm-mm. We have some amazing
audience volunteers. Let’s bring them on stage. Bring them– oh, my goodness. We’re going to take
two volunteers up. Wow. An amazing Thor cosplayer. Hi. – Oh, and an amazing Valkyrie.
– How are you? Josh.
So nice to– You’re going to
be here with Sarah. Nice to meet you. Thor, you’ll be with– you’ll be with Josh. Oh, sorry.
Right here. Come on over.
– Wait– oh. – There we go.
– There we go. – Let’s do this.
– We got it. You are a team. Lot of pressure. You are a team. I’m liking this
female Super Hero team up that’s happening right now.
– For real. Feels right. I feel good about it. Can you tell me your name? Kitroryia Oh, hello. And who’s your favorite
Marvel character? Well, obviously Valkyrie. I feel good about this. I think we’re going to– I think we’re going
to nail this one. Oh, I’m with it.
Yeah. Please tell us your name. My name is Natalie. And your favorite
Marvel character? Ironically, it’s She-Hulk. Oh. Oh. A twist. I love it. Deep tracks. Very cool. Well, I’m feeling pretty– I don’t want to get ahead
of myself, but I like– I like the dynamic. We’re feeling strong. LORRIANE: Love it. Love it. Great. Then you’re going to go first. Good. All right. So we’re going to put up
some graphics behind you. I think, Langston, let’s
show them how it’s done. I’ll demonstrate. Then you head over here. Step just this way. I’m gonna be the
guinea pig real quick. Langston will be taking the
place of the incredible Thor. And I’ll be taking
the place of Josh. We’re going to put a
graphic up on the screen. When we press– when we say go–
– Yes. We’re not gonna turn around. And then I am
going to do my best to verbally tell him how to
make this beautiful power pose behind him. So you’re a kitty. Nope, you’re going to
have to sit on the ground. What? Kind of criss cross,
applesauce, I guess? And then claws up. Paws up, claws up, right hand. Paws up, claws up. One– close enough. But now you see how it’s done. You feel it?
– It’s not an easy game. Not an easy game. Claws up, paws up. [LAUGHTER] The cat king! OK.
There you go. All right. Incredible demo. Thank you. Thank you. You guys are going to do so much
better than me and Langston. Now, here’s the thing– it is a competition,
and a competition ain’t nothing without points. So each pose that you
get correct is a point. And when I ring
this alarming bell– [RINGING] It’s going to be even louder. I’m not doing it because
I want to spare everyone, because this thing
gets real loud. When you hear that,
that means you have hit the pose correctly,
and you will be able to move on to the next pose. Wow. And the team with the most– the team with the most poses
at the end of 60 seconds is not only going
to win, you are going to get one of those
Marvel watches by Citizen. – Yeah!
– Wow. Yeah, right? Good.
– All right. I’m feeling good about this. Josh, are you ready? I’m feeling great. I believe in you. We’re best friends. Let’s do this. Oh, it is ultimately
about friendship. That is the journey. Yes. All right. We’re putting 60
seconds on the clock. 3, 2, 1. Power Pose! JOSH: So much pressure. OK. So you’re holding–
you’re holding the towel. You’re just– you’re,
like, a Maitre d’ at a– maybe use the other
arm to hold the towel. That sounds good. And then you just want to– you
want to get a quick workout in, so you just threw in
a couple of step ups. You know what I mean? Maybe– yeah, maybe
with the other leg. That could be fun. Perhaps– maybe you were going
in the right direction before. Yeah. Yes! LANGSTON: One pose! Well done.
LORRIANE: Keep going! Keep going!
It’s still you. You have 30 seconds. You have 30 seconds. I know what I’m doing. OK. So now you’re like, oh,
wow, is that a cockroach? I’m scared. There’s something on the ground. I’m nervous. – Oh!

living your full life. You are at karaoke– You’ve got 15 seconds. It’s a Friday night, and you
are just singing and living. What– LANGSTON: 8, 7, 6– JOSH: Other hands, maybe. Perhaps. And you are at full pose. LORRIANE: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. JOSH: And now just be powerful. Powerful. Oh– all right. Ouch. We have three points. Only three. All right. For Josh. For Josh and Natalie,

so you have the advantage. You’ve seen how it goes.

the end of a certain movie. [LAUGHTER] All right. 60 seconds on the clock. On your mark, get

big round of applause to Josh Peck and Sarah Merrill
for helping us out today. Oh, my goodness. Thank you. What? How amazing were they, you guys? You’re professionals. Incredible. I’m impressed. You– you crushed it. – Good job.
– You, too. You’re OK. Now– there’s
still some tension. Now– Admittedly, she is
already a Super Hero. Watch out. So now, we didn’t give– everyone did not
get a Citizen watch, but where can people
go get those Marvel watches by Citizen? Well, they can go to
the Citizen website. I think that’s probably
the best place. I mean, if you want
the ill Avengers watch, Captain America–
there’s so many. I mean, listen, you
could probably get one for every month of the year. Yeah, why not? That sounds right. Yeah, he’s right. All right, great. And you guys, we
have some stuff. Josh and Sarah, do
you want to, like– we have some cool, like, little
Citizen giveaways, if you want to throw those into the crowd. Oh, yeah. Hand these to the crowd. Handing gently into the crowd. Not– not ever tossing. Handing gingerly. But just respectfully
and kindly giving. But also, I wanted
to tell you guys that we have an
awesome event happening at Macy’s Herald
Square, which is just down the street from here. That is going to be tomorrow,
October 5th, at 2:00 PM. Yes, check this out. At that event there’s going
to be a Q&A with Master Marvel artists Adi Granov
and Mark Brooks, moderated by executive
editor Nick Lowe, with an awesome meet
and greet to follow. Yeah, plus guess who– buy
a Marvel watch by Citizen, get a free litho by the artist
as a gift with purchase, and VIP access to
the meet and greet. So cool, everyone, give it
up for Josh and Sarah one more time! Thank you, guys. Thank you, guys. Thank you so much for hanging
out with us, and you guys, stay here with us at
