Exposé: James Scott Farrin Commercials

19 03 2011

If you live in the research triangle than you’ve probably heard of our very own intense personal injury law office, James Scott Farrin. They are most famous for their commercials. If you know what I’m talking about, then this video might weird you out:

That’s right, same guy, but different law firm! Apparently the actor Robert Vaughn not only plays James Scott Farrin and the other bizarro versions of it, he was also the villain in the movie Superman III:

Take a look at his long and varied IMDB page. with everything from MatchGame to FDR.

Cookie Monster Auditions for SNL

3 12 2010

Everybody’s favorite Sesame Street character tries to achieve every comedian’s dream. I’m pretty sure this is a real viral marketing strategy to get a monster to host. You can join the Facebook group now!As strange as this is, is it really more unusual than the successful Facebook campaign to get Betty White to host? Here’s his hilarious audition tape:

Let me be the first to say there’s always a space on the DSI stage for Mister Cookie.

18 11 2010

Here’s the boring background from Wikipedia:

Pieing is the act of throwing a pie at a person. This can be a political action when the target is an authority figure, politician, or celebrity and can be used as a means of protesting against the target’s political beliefs, or against a perceived flaw — e.g. arrogance or hubris — in the target’s character.

Now here’s the comedy:

The Onion and Improv Sitting in a Tree

8 07 2010

I’ve suspected for a while that The Onion, a satirical newspaper, had some kind of relationship with improvisation. With articles like this and graphics like this the writers clearly know something about the subculture that is improv comedy. I’ve even recognized improvisers from their Onion News Network videos (not to be confused with DSI Witness News). Here’s Improv Everywhere’s Charlie Todd discussing  how all wrestling fans are actually paid professionals:

But my suspicion has been confirmed by yet another reference to improvisation in this recent video (at the 1 minute 20 second mark):

Who else could know that nerd male improvisers only talk to nerd girls improvisers? Speaking of, if you’re interested in becoming either one of those, Zach Ward’s 101/201 summer intensive has 2 spots left!
