Too late, your title has been upgraded.
We are at the beginning stages of putting together a video. Fortunately, Cirque has enlisted the help of his friend Ernie to edit for me.
I am leaning toward a spoof theme of the Dos Equis guy ads, you know "The most interesting man alive". The difference is I will be "The most interesting skier alive".
What I am looking for from you witty folks are some quips that are related to skiing, powder, or the ski bum lifestyle.
I have come with a few already:
He was the first to climb & ski the Mons Olympus on Mars. How did he do it? He can hold his breath for a week at a time.
The ladies wait in line to wax & scrape his skis.
Sluff cannot catch him.
Avalanches can't bury him, they part behind him.
You get the idea, I am interested in what you guys might come up with.
At the finish I would say:
"I don't always get to ski powder, but when I do I prefer the Powder Highway"
What do you guys think? Any ideas? Think with Chaos in mind.
There are a ton of possibilities in the Bob Peters threads
Good suggestions Jim. I think I'd have said : "The ladies wait in line to get a hot wax and scrape while admiring his, eh, ski" but I know I have a somewhat twisted humor.
Also, " He can transform slush to powder by sheer willpower".
Great stuff guys! This one especially cracked me up ... Thanks guroo
Much of this will be voice over on edited clips that I already have. I will need to shoot a few scenes though. I plan to have friends/actors re-enact some of the comments that went with my initial entry. It is not realistic to try & create much in the way of new skiing scenes as there isn't snow yet for me to do it on.
Keep the ideas coming, this is great stuff. I thought of a couple more on my way home today:
He was born with Lange's instead of feet
He doesn't need studs on his tires, he is a stud
I don't know about the belt, but he sure does have the skis. These need to be in the Video
"He doesn't buy skis... Custom skis appear on his doorstep"
I am sure the belt looks better on her than it ever would on me ;)
This is great input! Remember the video is only 1:30 long. I am thinking I almost have enough content & hopefully it will all come together with Ernie's editing skills.
I wouldn't use that picture, though. There's nothing about it that screams ski bum.
I was going to use "stay snowy my friends", but I think I like "frosty" better.
& you are right guroo, that picture does not scream Ski Bum!
Here it is folks! The video is complete & has been submitted to the judges:
Thanks to everyone for their support, input & ideas, you guys rock!
The winner will be announced on December 15th, keep your fingers crossed for me please.
Let me know what you think?
