The end of summer is always a slow time for most film/TV actors. For the ones where it’s not, we shun them for their success and beauty. Really, it’s an illness to be that pretty and successful.
Anyway! It’s during this time that I like to dabble in something creative that has no profit potential what-so-ever. That way I’m free to create without the threat of too much failure. Any measurement of success can be reinterpreted however I see fit. Today, my latest project’s success will be measured by “likes” on YouTube… I think. I may change it to how many blogs embed said project. (See how this works?) This success measurement approach is similar to a credit cards’ APR. But without the bad customer service and fine print.
So, what did I do with my Labor Day weekend? I made me a video! (Now, don’t worry, I’ve put the whole Tea Party thing on the back burner until Ms. Palin jumps into a race somewhere.) I decided to focus on “Dr.” Terry Jones over at the lovely Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Florida. This little fella boasts a membership of 50 or so followers and a stockpile of weapons (I’m guessing).
Recently, “Dr.” Terry Jones announced he would be burning Qur’ans on September 11th of this year. You can read more about the wisdom of such a move over at HuffingtonPost. (Also note that I believe everyone has a right to burn whatever book they want, as well as flags, steaks and incense.)
But for our purposes, that’s all you really need to know to enjoy my video. A video that I wrote in 15 minutes and then spent 6 straight hours putting together without a pee break… Yes, I’m such a big bladdered stud… Plus, mild OCD helps, too. [cue heartfelt PSA music] If you work in the industry and wish to save me from these bouts in the future, just call my theatrical agent with an audition.
And now, the official “National Burn A Qur’an Day” commercial!
Make sure to help my success rate by “liking” it on YouTube or embedding it in your blog! Otherwise, I have to change my success measurement… to the least liked video on YouTube… [Kicks at pebble on ground, then plops down with folded arms and a pouty face].
UPDATE: I have called off my pouty kid threat! Video seems to be doing really well. And now the good folks over at the Huffington Post have picked it up!
