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!
