metromode video on the shadow art fair contains a lot of pro-ypsi propaganda

OK, if you can get past the horror show of my bloated head and the jibber-jabbering of Clementine and me, this Metromode coverage of the Shadow Art Fair is really nicely done. It was shot during the slowest part of the day, but the Shadow Art Fair still comes across as a pretty happening place to be. There’s a lot to like about this video. The product shots are beautiful. Everyone looks happy. My friend Jennifer comes across really well. And the city somehow comes across as a kind of paradise on earth.

    Nice closing. Make sure Clementine’s grandma sees it!

    She loves her grandma… She just loves the limelight a little more.

    (I am, of course, kidding.)

    Mark, that was an absolutely OUTSTANDING soft sales pitch for Ypsi….both your words, and Jennifer’s explanation of the Shadow Art Fair.

    Seriously.

    Well done.

    So, did it work, Todd? Are you going to move your company (Leopold Brothers) here?

    If the soft sales sales pitch didn’t work, we can always send over a few goons to talk with you.

    If your Chamber of Commerce were smart, they’d buy the raw footage from Metromode and do something with it.

    This makes me proud that I moved to Ypsi, even though it was an accident and sort of forced. Yes, proud is how I feel.

    I watched the first 45 seconds and then the video froze up. I hate video on the web. What I saw looked good.

    I did see enough to come up with the theory that your later collapse was due to the weight of all the hair on your head.

    I’ve been waiting to see how long it took Mark to clarify whether he was “kidding” about Clemetine “loving grandma” or “loving the limelight.”

    It is a nice piece. And, I like the idea of a goon squad. I’ve always wanted to be a proper goon.

    OEC – I expect your gooning career would be pretty short if your first task was taking on Todd on his own turf. But, hey, knock yourself out. Just give me some warning – we’re gonna want this on youtube.

    Be careful, OEC, Todd Leopold is training.

    There is no chin behind todd leopold’s beard. There is only another fist.

    Mr. X.

    Don’t worry. So am I.

    Goon squads are traditionally employed to run people out of town. Using goon squads to run people back to is complete genius.
