Hilariously Awesome

As part of that auction that I won, Brandon Hardesty posted a video “for me”. It’s pretty funny stuff:

He’s sending me a VHS tape of the unedited footage, which is around 40 minutes long, I guess. Some of the comments on YouTube suggested that I may be working with Mr. Hardesty (that the iFroggy Network has a contract with him, etc.) and I was quick to clarify that. Though that would certainly be awesome, it’s not the case. This is a personal purchase, I’m a big fan and, though I don’t have a lot of money, it was something I wanted to do.

Others commented that it could turn out to be a good investment. It could be, but that’s not my perspective here. I’m sure that, by working hard enough, Brandon will be successful at whatever he wants and I look forward to seeing it. But, regardless of what the future holds, I thought it was just a cool thing to have and a cool thing to do. I don’t look at it as an investment at all, really. Seeing this video makes me so glad I did it.
