Cyclometh: RichieLaw: I'm okay managing the indiegogo site and helping coordinate things overall. I think I might not have time to webmaster a mirror site or the domain name.

Couldn't we just have the website url shoot to the indiegogo site?

Hack Patooey just indicated he'd do just that. He beat me to it, I was trying to figure out my Godaddy login info, heh. :)

And yes, I think a simple URL redirect to the donation page is best.


Not even RichieLaw's fab pitch on there? Or you want that on the donation page?

I think this is awesome, I will participate. This is the greatest idea since the last great idea. And it's probably been awhile.

If you approve I'll post it.

Cyclometh: Richie, I love the text. Is someone willing to set that to a video with a dramatic "movie trailer guy" voiceover? Because I want to record a reading of that- I can do the voice part but video is not my strong suit.


I'm a professional voice talent. I'll do it. Tonight, if I can.

I think on the donation page- if this goes as wide as it might go based just on this thread, bandwidth costs/allocation might be an issue, but a simple URL redirect wouldn't.

Normally I'd berate you for such a word salad. But given the glad tidings of this thread, I am internet high-fiving you for such an awesome and unorthodox display of English that I've seen since the last time I heard Bush Jr. speak.

Who is doing the video? Just need a bunch of stills that crossfade. Should be about 1 min long based on that text. I have Final Cut Pro.

Any opinion on loading it up with bumper stickers first? Like a bizarro version of the rusted out teabagger pickups i see on the road all the time?

Wouldn't mind slapping one of these on it.

coeyagi: Carolus99: I'm loving this idea.

Would it be possible for us to go through Colbert SuperPac and get this protected as political speech? I'm sure the guys on Colbert's crew would love to do something like this, especially as Stephen has a real heart for charity.

Can you imagine: "Mr. Vice President, the citizens of the internet would like your blessing to donate this Trans-Am in your honor. They only ask that you pose with it holding an Icehouse Tallboy while shirtless."

As long as Colbert can somehow support it while spinning it against Joe (for the fake GOP punditry) or for Colbert himself, he'd do it, just because it's hilarious.


"Nation, you may have watched the one-sided stomping given by Paul Ryan at the VP debates this past weekend. It was so bad they had to give old Uncle Joe laughing gas to numb the pain{clip}. Unfortunately, not everyone on the internet agrees with me, just the people I allow to stay on the Colbert Nation comments list. They claim Joe not only won the debate, but the Internet coddler-crats want to award him, I imagine the same way you give an award to all the kids who didn't eat a lethal amount of glue in kindergarden. Now, politicians can't accept these types of gifts, but if there were someone with a SuperPac, it could be protected as political speech..."
You get the idea.
(Goddamn comedy is hard)
 
2012-10-12 01:34:37 PM
Shhhhh.

If people were to convince Joe's opposition that making a contribution would help embarrass Joe and President Obama, why I bet millions of dollars would pour in, some of it from inside the US even. Charities would be awash in cash...


Shhhhh. I think I've said too much.
 
2012-10-12 01:34:37 PM
I have got to bolt (work...grrrr), however, somebody shoot off an email to the charities and let them know what is going down for their benefit.

Yeah, that was my thought- bunch of floating stills that fade in and out to the VO. Simple. I'm going to record the audio in a few minutes, put it up on Soundcloud and maybe someone can do something with it.

Cyclometh: Good question- it was mentioned upthread that we'll engage the White House. I suggest that once we have an idea of how well it will go (if we're going to hit the funding target) that we try to arrange a brief photo-op with the VP to "hand over the keys" and shake some hands, then take it and sell it for the charities.


Create a https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/ page to petition Biden to do the photo-op with the trans-am or something. Then from the donation link (and here), post a link to the petition to get signatures. That'd be how I would do it at least.

Ok, I will do it probably Sunday and post to YouTube.

When do we get shut down as a thread? Like 3 or 4 days? Just need to consider lines of communication.

And by Sunday, meaning, tonight if I can get sober from an office celebration that one of the shiatty managers quit her job and is moving outta state.

Biden is aware of the Trans Am meme, he said that the secret service wasn't going to let him drive it.

Also added soemthing, so once it is posted let me know if you think it is too much.

If we get an actual short video pitching this idea, it could make it on the daily show or colbert report. That would be better than a blowjob on Christmas.
