Stupid Evil Bastard: AS SEEN ON TV!

OK, we haven’t actually been on TV, but I did get a call from a television producer today. From a guy who’s working on a new show for one of the major networks. It’s another one of those shows where they collect a bunch of clips of people doing amazingly stupid things and put them all together into a single tasty half-hour or hour show for your viewing pleasure. Clips like the Turkey in a Truck clip I linked to on Thanksgiving day. I bet you’ll never guess which category here at SEB it was that led him to giving me a phone call…

Seems he wanted to buy that and another clip off of me. Problem is, they’re not my clips. Dammit. I don’t even own a video camera; something I hadn’t really missed until now. Not that it matters, I’m not the sort to go out and risk major personal injury to myself just for a chance to end up on TV. Still, I did help him piece together how to track down the people who might be the actual owners of the clips.

He thanked me for my help and asked that I pass along any new links to clips of people doing stupid things that I might happen across in my travels. I told him I’d be happy to pass them along and I asked if I could mention the show he was working on. He asked me to hold off until it started airing, which should be sometime this January. In the meantime, I need to get a hold of Hairboy who does have a video camera and isn’t afraid to do stupid things on occasion. 😀

Just goes to show you never know who’s reading your blog!

  1. Doesn’t it suck when you don’t own something? What’s funny is these guys just don’t understand the concept. When I posted the “one weekend a month my ass” picture I that I got via email, I eventually got a bunch of media inquiries about it. I told them all the same thing: I’m not the original source, so I really can’t help ya (much like you did). I sure do wish I could find the original source.

  2. Man, that is a funny clip. What an idiot!

    I’m putting you in my blog roll, like your page. I’m an atheist too.
