THE YELLOW GUY
A Slightly-Less-Than-Interesting Coincidence... Now Solved!
I was flipping through Home Theater magazine last night and came upon the following ad:
But then get this... Oh, this is sweet! Today I was looking for a Disney shareholder site
and stumbled upon this:
Are you completely wiggin' out or what? I mean, WOAH! This guy... Is he a clip art model? Is that lucrative? Probably not. I'm sure this guy gets no residuals even though his picture is all over the place ("all over the place" meaning in at least two places).
Oh, but wait... This just in...
One day, after seeing The Yellow Guy in many other places, including light pole banners at the Burbank Media City Center Mall...
...this direct-mail post card thingy...
...and even on Match.com...
...my boss, Richard, got a stock image catalog in the mail. He never looks at these things, but something
(can you doubt it was Jesus Christ?) made him flip through this one. And, lo and behold...
So this guy is a clip art model. Poor guy. His face is everywhere, and yet he's only a number in a catalog. A cool number, of course, but just a number nonetheless.
