Back in February, Onward State had the honor of being nominated for 2008’s Best Alternative Media Outlet by U.S. News and World Report’s Paper Trail blog. We had a great start, but then after voter support waned, I did something desperate. In addition to issuing a death threat, I offered “One Mark Act of Shame” in exchange for an improbable win. Long story short, you readers chose to send me into a crowded lecture hall as Green Man.
Special thanks to Prof. Smith, who had no idea we were going to do this, let alone record the exchange with hidden cameras. As you can tell from the video, he was unbelievably cool about a man in a green body suit popping in on his lecture.
Credit must also go to covert cameramen Davis and Eli, sleeper cells Brad and Andy, Abbey, who edited the video, and Evan, who not only lent me the suit, but was a creative consultant.
If you enjoyed the video, pass it along to friends and family. After all, you readers made this possible.
