G4 Attack of the Show covers Furry Weekend Atlanta

As mentioned on numerous tweets this weekend, G4’s Attack of the Show (ATOS) came to do videos and interviews at Furry Weekend Atlanta. G4 ATOS has a long history of being fascinated by furries and has often featured them on their show. They even came down to Atlanta to film the Furry/Klingon Bowling event held in 2007 that got national internet attention.  The coverage is often very humorous but has never come off as negative.

At this time, we do know they did some brief interviews, and filmed part of the Fursuit Dance competition.

We don’t know when G4 plans to air the footage. If they keep to previous production scheduls, the footage should air sometime in late April. As soon as we have a date, we’ll post it here! We’ll also make sure to post the video as soon as we can after they air it.

EDIT: If you recognize a suiter below, please tell us who they are in comments below! Give their twitter name too!

  1. I caught one youtube video showing the production crew filming a segment with many fursuiters dancing and jumping around. It was sorta amusing!

      G4 wasn’t a problem – they cleared being at FWA with the convention management and were escorted by con security during their filming. They’ve never produced “bad” furry coverage that I have seen.

  3. All I can think is: That’s right just keep filming the collars and such no need to notice the erotic card game being sold were the guy filming you filming is. D=

    Despite me extreme dislike of ATOS for reasons unrelated to furry. (They killed Screen Savers. TT_TT) They have done decent coverage of furies before so who knows. I’ll save any fear or judgment till I see it come out.

      To be fair, ATOS didn’t kill Screen Savers, Comcast did. They bought Tech TV and Gamer TV and married them together to produce the bastard channel which is G4. ATOS is the only thing that keeps G4 on air. They want to be the next Spike TV.

  4. The only suiters I readly recognized are the black & white husky in the center – his name is Flits – and the snow leopard wearing the basketball jersey – his name is Roby. I don’t think either of them have a twitter.
    A lot of the other suits are familiar to me, but I don’t remember their names.

  7. I find it so annoying, the reactions people have towards any media coverage. Especially since the majority of people with this bady like attitude baffle me when it seems no coverage of furry can be good. Like G4’s coverage last time some people said it was horrible why? I just know there is going to be some idiot who is all nervous about the erotic art being sold yeah like it doesn’t exist at comic cons, anime etc. Who the fuck cares. I swear to god to these people bitching about their arrival I swear it seems to me the only good coverage would be some delusional white washin wear everyone has a smile on and nothing is offensive like a censored 1950s superman comic. Yeah really stupid.
    You should be thankful a media outlet even want’s to cover these things. Now if we can just get a three day coverage (worth watching) like comic con gets then I’ll be impressed.

    I was at FWA ’11. I was personally happy to see G4 there. They do positive, lighthearted, and fair coverage. That’s why FWA staff let them in, and they are VERY particular with allowing media to cover the con. Anyone who instantly whines and curses G4 is a fool who needs to grow a pair.

    I love G4, they were very nice. Plus it was great to see the hostess don fox ears and a tail during the parade!

    I just wish I knew about the “dancing fursuiters” segment.. I wanted to be in it! ;_;
