Weed Killer Gone Wrong
Told in a style reminiscent of Max Headroom, this is the true story of weed killing gone wrong. The wife brought home some weed killer. The husband used it. Something went wrong. Now the husband and wife are at odds, each pointing the finger of blame at the other.
Who's fault is it? Who is to blame - the husband or the wife?

Notes: Did this REALLY happen? Are you trying to be Max Headroom? Who is Max Headroom? This looks like something out of The Matrix, are you copying The Matrix?
Yes. This is the true story of what happened when we tried removing weeds from our lawn. Told in the 3rd person by my digital 8-bit alter ego, all the basic facts of what took place are presented. The photo at the end of this video is how our lawn actually looked after this mix-up in weed killer spray.
Nope. The style in which this story is told is both an homage and parody of Max Headroom. I was (and still am) a big Max Headroom fan. Video blogging sounded like fun, but can appear plain and boring (to the viewer). I wondered what would happen if I took an ordinary story and added some old-school visual fun in the vein of Max Headroom, as an experiment. I chose a look and style of early 80's computers, with the green monochrome look and ASCII text in the background (instead of primary colored lines). Max Headroom existed 20 minutes into the future. I figured I'd venture 20 minutes into the past with an old school computer looking, Max Headroom-like character - my digital 8-bit alter ego. :-)
What? You don't know who Max Headroom is? He's only one of the coolest characters (and sci-fi concepts) to come out of the 80's! Perhaps this will help: Max Headroom at Wikipedia.com. In the 80's, people either loved Max or hated him. I thought he and the TV show of the same name, were awesome! :-D
No. I have been told that the green, monochrome ASCII text in the background looks similar to the raw "code" seen in the film The Matrix. The Matrix is cool film, but this is backward. It is the "code" seen in The Matrix that resembles green, monochrome ASCII text. Green, monochrome ASCII text was a very common sight back in the early 80's, long before The Matrix. Of course, it was The Matrix this took that look and made it very popular. If you think this looks more like something out of the film The Matrix than an old-school, early 80's computer themed Max Headroom parody, that's fine by me. If The Matrix look makes this cooler in your book, I can dig it! :-)
