If You Record It, It Will Live Forever

A few months back, a fellow blogger and I did a quick rip on the Scott Glenn voiced Quixtar ad. It got banned very quickly from YouTube for "Copyright Infringement." That's understandable, I guess. If you're Quixtar, you don't want people finding out the hidden truths of your organization. And just as Leonard Nimoy will never escape the Bilbo Baggins video, Quixtar can't get away from this.

Someone grabbed the audio track of that little spoof and re-edited a funnier version that pulls clips from the Dateline NBC exposé on the multi-level pimps. Consider this my revised writing and voiceover demo reel. Sample comment from a YouTuber: "The idiots who made this video are sick. For over 20 years, my family has made a decent, honest living from the Amway opportunity."

  • But, sir, if I could show you how you can save hundreds of dollars a year from what you're currently spending on home products, wouldn't that be worth just 10 minutes of your time?

  • “For over 20 years, my family has made a decent, honest living from the Amway opportunity.”

    And they can still sleep at night after 20, huh.

  • You sound a lot like Diedrich Bader to me.

  • Thompanilla:

    No, that is not worth 10 minutes of my time, but thank you. (and you've obviously had experience with these people)

    Cap'n:

    You mean the guy who played Miramax Security Guard Gordon in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back? I am honored that you recognize my influences. (never heard of him)

  • Let's see, Bader was also -- the ups driver in the Drew Carey show, the redneck neighbor in Office Space and the karate instructor in Napolean Dynamite. Oh, I'm not saying yu're modeling your voice after his. I'm saying its inherently similar to my ear. I think it's marketable. Maybe you and MTLB and me should do a conference call podcast? It think beer should be involved.

  • Oh -- and Kymber should be in on any group podcast, too -- if she can keep the loud birds off the phone.
