Reaction to "Inside Cubebreak"
Forgive me for a somewhat self indulgent post. I was struck by some of the Revverberation posts about "Inside CubeBreak" because I violated every rule of a Revver video. There were inside jokes, it was too long, and I assembled the most dysfunctional cast I could find.
Anyway, someone just forwarded me an e-mail thread that was bouncing around my dayjob office. It was swawned by the the "Inside Cubebreak" spoof I did playing multiple personalities. What makes this so funny is that I wasn't copied on any of these, and finally my boss mentioned the thread to me, and sent it:
My e-mail to select work colleagues: "I worked with my entire team at CubeBreak to prepare this video. It's a little long, but I wanted to make sure everyone got air time. Link to "Inside CubeBreak."
My colleague to his friends (and my boss): "I finally figured out what 'new media' is."
My boss: "I finally figured out what happens when Kevin goes too long without his meds. Of course, some of these alternate personalities look pretty good. Can we just keep a couple of them, and put the original in mothballs somewhere?"
An executive director in our group: "I think he/they need to some abs exercises."
My boss: True, but I'm hardly in a position to pass judgment about that. Still, I didn't take off my shirt, shoot markers across the room with my tummy, then post it on the internet, either. Maybe I am in a position to pass judgment.
P.S. This is helping balance out the horrible feedback that "America's Funniest Bloopers" is getting on YouTube (more than 2500 views, but about 12 negative comments). I'm not sure I like the comments-posting functionality. Let's not ad that feature to Revver. I'd rather live and die by the views/ratings than the random thoughts by people who missed the whole point of AFB... it was a SPOOF on the stupidity of AFV, people!
