Jeepers creepers, I just discovered that the Heartland Institute, which organized the inactivist “2008 International Conference on Climate Change” in March, actually ran a YouTube video promoting the ‘conference’ back in January.
Now, if I have enough time, I’ll probably try to remix it in time for their “2009 International Conference on Climate Change” next year. For one thing, the background muzak is ripped from the opening of A Little Less Conversation, and is too cheesy (in my very very humble opinion). Maybe I’ll replace the background muzak with the opening strains of Richard Strauss’s Also sprach Zarathustra. Or something by Paris Hilton, I don’t know. Perhaps I’ll also work in some references to
- Al Gore and his Fat Fat Fatness;
- the vast conspiracy of THIRD WORLD KLEPTOCRATS!!! that lurks under your bed;
- the prizes and awards which Professor Lindzen and Viscount Monckton so badly need and so clearly deserve; and
- some random stuff, like kittens.
However, I’m somewhat short of time at the moment, so I’ll leave this as a creative challenge to all of you: How would you like to promote Heartland’s conference next year? Remix the promotional video in whatever way you wish, and let us know what you come up with! 🙂
Update 2009-01-24: By yours truly. Not a remix, but it does use Also sprach Zarathustra. 🙂
