Good Morning, Sports Racers!
Spoiler Alert! This is NOT a real job, and because of that I probably should have saved it for “Casual Friday”. However, I was reminded of the short film linked below today, and I absolutely had to share it with you.
The creator of the film linked here is Ze Frank. If you don’t know who he is, I strongly suggest that you check out his website. He is revered enough as a true “Internet Celebrity” (in addition to being a speaker, blogger, artist, musician and college teacher) that I don’t need to spend much time talking him up, but I would like to say that he is one of the people who has convinced me that there are a million things left to do with the Internet that no one has figured out yet.
He convinced two different people to lay pieces of bread on the ground exactly opposite each other on the planet to create an Earth sandwich. He discovered Twitter and one week later had 5,000 people playing Twitter Bingo. Two weeks after that he started Color Wars 2008, which is like online summer camp with a counselor every bit as kooky and wonderful as Bill Murray in “Meatballs”.
But before all that, he created this wonderful “interview” with the “Chief Designer, Department of Homeland Security” and I’d like to share it all with you. You’ll need Quicktime, but it is definitely worth it!
DISCLAIMER: If you are not familiar with Ze Frank and choose to visit his website, please be prepared to spend a fair amount of time laughing your ass off.
NOTE: I am down to almost nothing in the cool job queue, because I haven’t had too much time to seek out more cool jobsters for the last week or so. If anyone has a request, a friend with a cool job that you’d like to see featured, or has a cool job they’d like to share about…I could use your help!
