Fotographical Friday: C-list Superhero Week: Enviroman.

January 20, 2017

In 1991, my friend Jamie, who was also a video producer, asked me to write a humorous script for an industrial video with an environmental bent. So I came up with this idea of a lame superhero named Enviroman – not really a superhero as much as a nutjob who fancied himself a superhero. When I acted out the idea for Jamie he suggested that I play the character myself. (I assumed it was meant as a compliment so I agreed to do it.)The client loved the idea and we went ahead with preproduction. We had pictured his costume as something out of a laundry hamper – long underwear, a towel for a cape and so on – but the client had other ideas. They wanted this character to be an on-going proposition – a mascot or something like that – with a “real” superhero suit. So off I went to our local professional theater company to have a custom-made costume created. Never have I been so thoroughly measured for a garment.

A few days before we were to start shooting, a higher-up in the company read the script, freaked out because it was funny and shut the whole thing down.

And I ended up with the suit. After all, it didn’t fit anyone but me.

Does whatever Spider-jammies can,
Can it swing from a web?
No, it can’t.
It’s made from 100% polyester, not silk.

If you’ve been traipsing the mean e-streets of the internet long enough you know that most of the “funny” pics that you see didn’t originate with the site you’re seeing them on. Their chain of custody is long and tangled; almost impossible to track back to Poster Zero.

Not this one. This one comes straight from me to you. (I’ve cut out the middleman and passed the savings onto you!) This gem was in my local supermarket parking lot. Don’t know if the owner is a local or just someone passing through on their way to another airbrushed galaxy.

… I swear I heard a smooth jazz instrumental version of the “Wonder Woman” theme song.
