So my friend Mike Ashworth shared this video today and I’ve not stopped laughing since the moment I clicked “play.” Apparently, this is what goes on in Brighton, on the South Coast of England. (Why is it that I don’t visit there more often?). And it occurred to me that this brilliance deserves a little social media love.
Matt Whistler is not only seriously crazy, he’s seriously funny. And the very least any of us can do is stop what we’re doing – NOW. Then, immediately log in to Vimeo (or sign up if you don’t yet have an account) and “Like” this doggone thing. Something this funny deserves to go viral, dontcha think? And while you’re at it, subscribe to Convict Films’ channel because their stuff is fantastic.
Surfin’ Bird Christmas No.1 2010 starring Matt Whistler from Convict Films on Vimeo.
Anyone who is nuts enough to do this deserves some massive kudos. And now, I can’t get the doggone song out of my head, so I’m torturing you with it, too. After all, that’s what friends do.
Everybody’s heard about The Bird. Well, The Bird, Bird, Bird, The Bird is the word. Don’t you know about The Bird? Well, everybody knows, The Bird is the word. Well, everybody’s heard about The Bird. Well The Bird, Bird, Bird, the Bird Bird’s the word.
Thanks to Matt Whistler, Convict Films and Mike Ashworth for making Surfin’ Bird Christmas #1 – and my day. And, for the record, this is proof positive that there really IS value in pissing your day away and getting lost in the Internets. Look at the gems that are out there, just waiting to be discovered. You’re welcome. Again.
