Mirror Synchronicity: Greeting Card Writer
I was at the Erma Bombeck writer's conference in Dayton last week and one evening the guest speakers were Matt Sloan and Aaron Yonda of Blame Society Productions. They showed a video clip of a youtube spoof they did called Greeting Card Writer. I think it was especially funny because the audience all identified with the character's 'inspiration.' After their speech was over, a man stood up in the audience and said he was a greeting card writer and they had used one of his greeting cards in the video and he was very touched. He was quite emotional... It was weird because of the hundreds of thousands of greeting cards out there, what are the odds? He then said that everyone watched it at his greeting card office and the lawyers would be calling soon. The speakers weren't sure if that was a joke or not!
