Now yesterday, Jackson West pointed out that a stickerer of the Buddha was “caught on tape” (so to speak) on one of a series of videos being used to promote Kodak’s new Flip-like digital video camera, the rugged, waterproof Play Sport Zx3. But then, somebody edited the vid, so now you can’t see the culprit on the video.
Oh, wait a sec, how about this? Here is one of the scenes that was visible yesterday but not today. So, who are “those are the dipshits who would tag the big buddha statue?” Here’s the answer from my video cache (so to speak) of the Uptown Almanac:
Sadly, it appears that one of the scenes featuring this green-screen gentleman got cut. (Really, it’s an awesome video all-around. Thanks Kodak Marketing Department!)
It seems our corporate overlords are always trying to think of new ways to get to us, huh? Oh well.
Will the giant Buddha-heads start crying due to all the abuse?
Only Time Will Tell.
