"I Thought of it First!" - The Movie

Remember this post about how a fake phone call can get you out of pointless, boring tasks and show ex-partners we've moved on?  Well, it was so popular I turned the first vignette into a movie using online xtranormal software.

It's super easy and free to use.  You pick your actors, write your script, add gestures, facial expressions, a sound track and voila!  It isn't perfect - I couldn't accessorize my actor with a cellphone, for example, or have her walk offstage at the end of the dialog - but the price is right.

Here's the movie - it's less than a minute long and only took about 5 minutes to make:

  4. I fail to see the humor. Blue headers ARE better, and 6,00 manual entries is like, no big deal...Too f'ing funny. Great post!
