If you read my last post, it was about not feeling guilty. Not being harangued by Mister Guilt every time I try and do something different or creative.
If you remember, ‘I was wasting my time writing a story no one would ever read.’ So I made a video of me writing it and posted it on the internet along with the blog.
So how did it go? Well, it made me feel pretty damn good actually. I felt proud and powerful. ‘Who gives a monkeys what I do,’ I thought. ‘If someone wants to laugh at me and say, “Well, you’re a rather silly fellow, Oggers,” then good for them. Meanwhile, I’ll get on with my life.’
So what’s a MockVert?
It’s an unofficial advertisement for a product featuring real life people.
So who invented it?
I did. Today in fact as I was standing in my kitchen making a coffee wondering how I would advertise the particular brand I was using.
Who’s in it?
Me. As later in the day, I thought what would happen if I actually filmed myself promoting a product – say a beer – and put it on the internet? How silly would that be?
Is it legal?
I don’t know. The only way to find out is to try. The Orville brothers didn’t invent the aeroplane by sitting on their fat American asses wondering what would happen if they glued a couple of long flat pieces of wood together and attached it to a motor.
What’s the product?
Export 33. It’s not my regular brand, but they’d run out at the shop. This was all they had.
Will I get sued?
I hope so.
Where can I see?
