Hilarious Ken Video and...Why isn't Ken on other shows??

Postby kevin63138 » Sat Apr 21, 2007 4:17 pm

Surely he could dominate Millionaire or...Wheel of Fortune.

Anyway, I couldn't find any mention of this on Ken's Blog or the forums, but there is a great Weird Al style parody of The Killers' Mr. Brightside on youtube. Even my brother who isn't a game show fanatic thought it was great.

Oh and Ken (if you read this) I loved Brainiac as many have...and as many say, it was great!! (Coming from a mostly non-reader of books). Also, I emailed you with basically the same info. as in this post, but then I wasn't sure if you checked it. (The video seems like something you would mention in your blog).

Oh, I feel like a dolt now. It was mentioned in his blog. Doh!

Well, Eric's song was in the blog, but the video wasn't. I didn't want to toot my own horn over here (especially if it wasn't that great), so I didn't mention it on the message boards. I did send an e-mail notifying Ken about it, though. I mentioned it to Eric, too, mainly to make sure they didn't have a problem with my uploading it.

Glad you liked it.

Was it you who made it, then? It was good! The video clips/pics really complemented the song nicely.

Yeah, I put it together one Wednesday about a month ago when I didn't really have anything else going on. It was fun.

Wow, Reeder! I hadn't seen that before, and Eric D. Snider is my very own son! I love the song, and I loved the video, and I loved being reminded of Ken Jennings' reign on Jeopardy! That was an exciting five+ months.

Well maybe I shouldn't have thrown this question in amidst my original post, but...

Why isn't Ken going on other shows (besides 1 vs. 100). I'm sure he would do very well on Millionaire! (Especially the movie themed weeks!)

Huh. I did mention it back at the Village (page 9 of the Funny Videos thread) after I got Eric's OK, but nobody commented on it and I figured it wasn't that big of a deal.

Glad you liked it though (those that did, at least). And thanks.

Well, I know how much effort it takes to edit a video together like that (assuming you're an amateur). (I mean, not that it compares to the original songwriter lol)

Ryan, I tend to not read the Funny Videos thread on the other board, so I missed it. But you did a great job.
