  1. VH1 is on a mission: to determine the hippest, most culturally literate presidential candidate. Sure, Wes Clark has heard of Outkast - but can he tell Andre from Big Boi? And so what if John Kerry plays acoustic guitar - can he name the guy who shreds it for Metallica? Forget, for a moment, the environment, budgets, and Bin Laden. VH1 knows the only issue that really matters in the minds of many Americans -pop culture. Who gets nominated as the people's pop culture candidate? Thats what were here to find out. This half-hour show is part pop culture quiz, part theatre of the absurd. The behind-the-scenes effort to quiz each candidate is just as important as the quiz itself. Our host, Aamer travels across New Hampshire in late January to put these presidential wannabes to the test; the journey gives us insight into each candidate and their inner circle. If a candidate turns us down, well call him out as a pop culture chicken. Some questions asked in the show include: What team does Lebron James play for?, What is Eminems real name?, Who wrote the Harry Potter books?, Who is married to Brad Pitt?, What is the name of Michael Jacksons ranch?, Who was the first American Idol?, What boy band is Justin Timberlake a member of? and more.
