Lunchtime Musings: on the writers’ strike


I love seeing the striking writers producing direct-to-YouTube videos in support of their cause. The video below was posted yesterday, and as of 1:31 pm EST it’s been viewed 38,447 times. An awful lot of people are getting an engaging, amusing pitch for the writers’ position.

Seems like the Big Content executives would benefit from coming up with an equally engaging response. If only they had access to a group of people who were used to developing entertaining content based on current events on a very tight schedule…

Update, 7:23PM: This video has now been viewed 61,165 times. Sure, it’s no Lazy Sunday, but 22k views in six hours sounds like a decent start on viral uptake to me.
