This Is How My Dad Will Become a Viral Star
*Even though a mini series has already been inspired by him.
A casual conversation with my father in regards to potential birthday gifts developed into an unprecedented feel fest on drones and their impact on his psyche, and a resulting ah-ha moment that I might have the makings of a YouTube sensation within grasp*.
please be reminded that my dad once looked like Groucho Marx:
STEPHEN: If I had a drone flying over my house, I'd be like, "Fuck that. Fuck you drones." I'd throw stones at it until it went away.
ME: *Chokes on own laughter*
S: What? I'm serious. I don't want drones watching me.
M: Sure, but then our neighbors would gather around our yard to watch Old Man Lardiere throw stones and curse out a drone.
S: Well I guess your right. [Contemplative beat] Then I'd probably have ten other drones swarming to take videos of me throwing rocks at the sky.
M: You could become a YouTube star.
S: No, no. I don't think I'd want that either.
My father is also a celebrity fashion critic.
Analyze & Discuss:
Would a Steve x Drake mashup of this imagined drone video and the "Hotline Bling" music video make for greater viral content? Also—who has a drone that I could borrow?
