My “Blackberry Crackberry” is an “official honoree” for the 11th annual Webby Awards. There’s not much else to say about this. Just credentializing because I’m hopelessly insecure.
Still, I posted today my favorite of my recent videos. It’s called “Chicken Prank.” Here’s the premise. A father forces his son to dress in a chicken suit and hand out fliers for his new fast-food chicken joint. The son is miserable and confides in potential customers that the chicken is horrible. The “candid-camera” style video showcased too interesting socialogical lessons:
- People will lie to protect a kid from a mean dad.
- Nobody seems to notice the camera if you put them in an odd enough situation.
I can boast about this video because all I did was create the circumstance, hold the camera and edit. Spencer (the friend of my nephew who is now a weblebrity after his “Farting in Public” video) played the son. And YouTube King Pipistrello played the father. Brilliant performances and improv on both of their parts.
