What It's Like To Be A Caucasian Reporter In China

Thursday, August 21, 2008

The Sporting Blog came across this hilarious video of BBC reporter Steve Parry walking around with a cardboard cutout of Michael Phelps. Watch as people go crazy thinking he's actually Phelps himself....

That whole scene reminded me of the New Era commercial where everyone thinks the dude in the airport is David Ortiz. Parry does say he feels like a "fraud" but tell me you wouldn't try the same thing just to see what it was like. Too funny.

Did you ever figure out what happened with your site going down last night? I notice that all of your Olympic videos are down now so I am trying to reach my own conclusions.

Sounds like Chris Berman is there around the 37 second mark? Back back back back back back back.

It's not just Americans that are stupid.

Your own conclusions are probably right. If Google gets any requests of copyright infringement, they automatically shut the site down. You can then appeal after that.

While you can't copyright a newsworthy event, my hands are tied while being under the umbrella of Google/Blogger. I need to switch to a new server soon, but just don't have the time at the moment.

That's the long and short of it and didn't really feel like posting on it last night. Hopefully it doesn't happen again.
