Somehow, some golf tournament is on my television, so of course my mind immediately went to Happy Gilmore, the greatest golfer of my generation.
SO. A t-shirt I designed was seen on TNA Impact Wrestling this evening. My art was seen on national television. Holy crap.
From what I can tell, this guy was pretty much on screen for the entire broadcast, but had this pretty sweet closeup early into the show. I am just so blown away right now. My art was on televised wrestling.
If you want to look as awesome as this guy, BUY MY T-SHIRT AT BARBERSHOPWINDOW.COM!! :D
8-Bit ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic (modern)
This week, Weird Al Yankovic released a new (and possibly his last) album called “Mandatory Fun.” To promote this album, he embarked on a genius marketing strategy: release eight music videos in eight days. Three days in, and every music video so far has been a smash hit, and his album is #1 on iTunes. Weird Al is trending big time, which is remarkable for an artist who has been doing this for over 30 years!
When it comes to satire, all of us are but amateurs, while Weird Al Yankovic is The Master.
18 years ago today, the nWo was formed, a group that both saved, and then killed WCW (in real life), ushering in an era of pro wrestling that was endlessly fascinated with “COOL” bad guys.
Actually, I’ve done Pikachu before!
