I mean, lots of stuff happened today. I waded through a million emails that accumulated at work because I took one lousy Friday off. I tried and failed to visit with my big sis (schedules are complicated, right?). I bought groceries. It was just a day full o' fun.
But this also happened on my Twitter account.
Who is Keith Powell? If you are a hug fan of the late, great "30 Rock," then all I have to say is: Toofer.
|I could also say "Shut up, Lutz," and you would just know.|
And then this happened.
And then THIS happened.
Yeah, Toofer not only followed me, but also liked my Tweeted reaction to his follow.
OK, well then, a while later I received this not-at-all-a-robo-message in my DMs.
So basically, Keith Powell (or his social media intern) is following random semi-humorous bloggers with Twitter accounts in order to drum up buzz for his new web show. The idea is that some random obscure easily-starstruck dweeby blogger in Texas will be so blown away at being followed by a CELEBERTY that she will totally spread the word about the new series "Keith Broke His Leg" at GetBroken.com.
Which, as you can see, is spot-on strategy on his part.
Look, in the game of pseudo-viral marketing, I am the ideal mark. I'm insecure, desperate for attention, and utterly mad about the concept of celebrity. So if an actor who played a secondary character in a cult TV show wants to trade his acknowledgement of my existence for a plug on a little-read blog, I'm in. Watch "Keith Broke His Leg" at GetBroken.com, you guys. I totally will, when I have a moment.
Remember, I received no compensation for this promotion, apart from the shallow thrill of being followed by a reasonably famous actor. Which is more than enough for me. That follow, plus 40 hours a week of hard work at an office job, totally pays the rent and buys, like, milk and shit.
Watch "Keith Broke His Leg" at GetBroken.com.
Love you, Toofer.
