Alternate Reality Public Service Announcement

afscme

In this footage shot for a PSA from the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), the voiceover actor hijacks the original spot and produces an alternate, more honest version. It’s not exactly a director’s cut, but close.

Having served time at acronymic companies like AFSCME, I can relate with how boring this job must have been for the voiceover actor. It’s also easy to see why he instantly wanted to deride such nonsense. What I like most, however, is that when you search for AFSCME in Google, this video appears on the first page of results. And the opening line in the video is not too bad either: “Hey, on your way to work tomorrow, instead of sitting around with your finger up your ass, look around.”
