To discuss a first for WildARS: Video

There are few things in life that make me legitimately giddy. They are as follows:
  • Watching National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation with my family for the millionth time. In July. So we can say, "I'll take the neck, Clark." Again.
  • Having one of my favorite sports teams makes the playoffs. Even though that hasn't been the case with the Pittsburgh Pirates since I was 9... that makes them the deadbeat dads of baseball.
  • Making the Band (Yes, I saw the second half of the season finale. Yes, I'll get a play by play up soon. It was full of drama!)
  • Getting the cute giggle and wave from a cute girl passing by, even if I'm an idiot and don't talk to her.
  • Shamrock shakes at McDonalds
  • Capricorn (the girlfriend not the astrological sign)
There are a few others, but I want to get to the point, which is this: For the first time on WildARSChase, I have a video to share (I wrote the script). What's that, Andy? Awesomeness? Well, yes it just might be.

This was produced by the people who run the 20-somethings group at my church (They did a sweet job and deserve a litany of thanks and manhugs). It debuted last night, for this week's topic on how people falsely value looks over character.

No, this 2-minute video doesn't talk about Jesus- although I'm a big fan of his work. Instead, it's an analogy using the vice presidential election. I wrote the script for it, my first foray into video script writing since college...

Oh, and no one is endorsing any candidate. It's all for giggles. It's also safe for work. I mean, I wrote it for church, after all... The volume is a little low, so you may need to turn it up.

So, I'm giddy to share this with you:

I actually moved the computer from the floor to the desktop to hear the crappy stock-issue speakers over the buzzing vending-machine and the ever-running A/C so I could watch this... the tagline at the end is classic - I won't ruin it for the cheaters that may read comments before seeing the video...

Very nice.
