I can do video editing. I mostly do propaganda, though, so someone's going to have to come up with a concept for the commercial first.

A serious commercial should reflect the product and appeal to a certain type of person. I think the book could be summed up with the stereotypical wise little old Asian man reading it briefly, perhaps at breakfast, and squirting tea out of his nose maybe going "hot, hot!" Then being ok with it and going back to the amused laughing he was about to do.

Then the audience may wonder what could be THAT funny.

And you have a little old Asian man you can hire to do that?

Doesn't everyone?

I had to send mine in for repairs.

You should see if you can trade in for a Mr. Miagi model. I've heard they're tougher than the generics.

Holy crap! He'd be ideal. I wonder if he might like the book enough to endorse, it if not engage in spittake comedy.

I'm out of stock on little old Asian men. I just assumed that you guys probably had a supply... my bad.

Just kicking an idea about. I know nothing I've said has been very realistic. I'm not even trying to be. Sometimes from a wild and unworkable proposal something is found or inspired that could work. Or not.

The George Takai thing was a jab at your idea that an Asian person having a sense of humor is in itself funny.

Just saying.

I have an Asian daughter, if that would do in a pinch. We could just put a gray wig on her, I hear all white people think all Asians look the same anyway.

You know very well Asiangirls only exist as sex objects, Nigel.  :horrormirth:

You know when you posted this I was... perturbed. That was not 'my idea'. I kept at my work and thought it over.

I generated the image in my mind and was thinking about how the Chao Te Ching had the appearance of and parody title from an Asian document. I was appealing to stereotype.. I thought lightly.

It finally hit me that you were not being in the least inflammatory with me or accusative. You were just right. I may not have thought of it that way but others surely would, even if only to stir up some shit. The idea in that light was much further off base than I had realized when I blurted it out.

I still have yet to understand the Takei connection, clearly went right over my head.

More to the point, he laughs all the time.  He's one of my idols in that respect, second only to Angry British Guy.

I like a person who can laugh things off too. I've gotten to the point where I easily get over myself and laugh off my own stupidity or unfortunate circumstances.  My problem is when other people screw my day up for me. I'm working on that.

I've decided that before I even approach this subject again I'm going to  reread the book a couple times. Think I need some good medicine.
