Calling all video producers !!Submitted by drolsinatas on Thu, 10/13/2011 - 21:59
There are so many great videos being made by what appear to be extremely motivated and talented people. I love watching them, but in every attempt to share them with my friends on facebook, very few respond and re-post. However, when I share poop jokes, funny jpegs, or comedy videos, EVERYONE chimes in and shares, repost, ect.
So here's my idea. If any of you reading this are connected with comedy improv actors, from places such as UCB, Groundlings, City Limits, etc.. can you make skits to make the average facebook using American aware of the conditions these 'boiling frogs' people have become complacent with.
Example, a funny guy from the 80's with a terrible temper gets in a time machine and lands in 2011. He attempts to go about his day and reacts completely pist off at things like prices at McDonalds, tip lines on credit card receipts, taxes out of his check, seatbelt tickets, obamacare while a "poor man" is smoking a cigarette and explains the taxes are to help him and his healthcare. If the actors reactions are funny enough for the average American to relate to, I think videos like this will get passed around more.
Finally, somehow Ron Paul needs to appear in the video and be a slap of common sense.
Our society is the "Boiling Frog" and I think it's going to take reminding Americans how cool the water once was, even in their life time.
Watch this for an example of how comedy opens minds. http://youtu.be/QsPDT5qHtZ4
