11:18 pm - Snakes on a Phone
Tonight as I was helping fuzzyinthehead and her friend Jason move her and and agaysexicon move their new apartment, I got a phone call from ribsinbacon. At least, my phone said the call was from Ribs. The voice on the other end said, "Colin! This is Samuel L. Jackson."

First I was impressed that Ribs can do such a convincing imitation of Samuel L. Jackson.

Then I figured out that it really was Samuel L. Jackson. I became was frightened that he was upset about my recent SoaP diatribe and was about to administer over the phone a Mr. T-style fool-pitying.

Then I realized that it was merely a very clever, personalized recording. Listen to it here. (MP3, 488k)

Anyway, regardless of what else I have to say about the movie, I'm impressed and amused by its marketing campaign. You can freak your friends out too by visiting this site.

I might send one to my boss tomorrow at work. I might get into trouble for it.

Wow. They've gone from audience participation filmmaking to audience participation advertising. This is precisely the kind of thing that's totally brilliant the first time and really annoying every time after that.

Which is why I sent one to my brother.

And hey, give SLJ credit. I think the movie is practically his brainchild by this point.

You have NO idea. Wait, yes, you probably do.
