Cutting a Promo

Deep resonating voiceover: In a galaxy where anything can happen, a one-man army has come forward to end tyranny and evil wherever it may take shape. From Earth to Hacknor to the ends of the galaxy, this man whose destiny has been foretold, will strive to right what is wrong. And though his home planet will never know it, his heroism has already saved them.

Jon: Hi, I’m Jon the Intergalactic Gladiator; you can catch me every week in the Intergalactic Gladiating Federation --

Director: Cut, cut, it's not “Federation,” it’s “Entertainment” now.

Jon: Right, right, I knew that. I can’t believe that I messed that up.

Director: Take it from the top.

Professor Xavier said...

As painful as that must have been, it's still not quite as bad as a book signing. I don't know if you've ever had to do one of those Jon but it is just horrible. All these over-weight unwashed fan boys want to keep shaking your hand and won't stop asking innane questions about Wolverine. What's he really like? What kind of chewing gum does he like? Uggh.

Wedge Antillies said...

Wow, I did not know that being famous was such hard work!

A Army Of (Cl)One said...

At least you didn't have George Cloney stepping all over you lines in a training video. I learnd those lines backwards and forwards, only to be overshadowed by "Look Sir, Droids!" Damm him Damm haim.

JawaJuice said...

I hope you got a year’s supply of Buzz Light Beer for that also.



Hey, Professor X….what type of chewing gum does Wolverine like?

Vegeta said...

Has Wolverine ever calmed down from the gum I gave him that time? Who new Highly caffinated gum would have him climbing th walls. literally. Bwhahahahahahahahah!

So Buzz finally made light beer. I have to try some.

Professor Xavier said...

Jawajuice, he's go through three or four packs of Hubba Bubba a day. It can get pretty messy but at least he's not chewing tabacco anymore.

Private Hudson said...

That's good, 'cuz if he pops a bubble on his sideburns, he can just pull it right off.

Jabafatboy said...

Sold out ta the Commercial machine did ya !!

Well I think its absolutely disgracefull that you would stoop so low as to permit yer face to push commercial products.

I mean , I dont understand why they chose you instead of m....er...er, like I said its disgracefull !!

Jean-Luc Picard said...

I'm sure the director has got a headache from doing that.

Vampirella said...
