Bad Idea (?)

From a few weeks passed:

More proof that Zhao should be the official, animated character spokesperson for Old Spice:

Kevin, if you're reading this, how much would you charge to build up a puppet bender Zhao and make a fake Old Spice commercial?
I would totally fund it, ha ha!

Sorry, no drawings to post- too much deadline crunch, no time to draw for myself, for others, only for the project.

Other than that, this gif done by othellia totally cracked me up. Give her a hand of applause:

Zhao,Last Airbender.

Seeing how M.Night loved changing the charater's name pronunciation, his parallel with Hahn works very well XD

Oops, you may have tried viewing it when I was editing something. Should be fine now.

All of those twitter/internet response videos are incredible. Brilliant marketing campaign.
Jul. 13th, 2010 09:36 pm (UTC)
They are definitely doing something right. Very smart also to use the internet to have a direct interaction with their viewership.

Not to mention comedy always is the best advertisement option. Always. No one ever bought a car cause it was sleek-ily driving through a washed out color filter in Switzerland.

Harming cake...with his mouth.
Oh yeah.
I can't look at that gif without laughing.

I'm in love with this gif.
Jul. 13th, 2010 09:55 pm (UTC)
Ooh goody! Those Old Spice commercial are so top notch!
Agreed, Zhao would be a perfect fit for an animated version! :)

Jul. 13th, 2010 09:58 pm (UTC)
Old Spice may hesitate a bit to hire Zhao- hiring an egotistical bad guy with dreams of grandeur may be bad for their corporate image.
But he's got the physique!
I guess Ozai would fit too.
Jul. 13th, 2010 10:34 pm (UTC)
This is fantastic. Bwahaha!
Jul. 13th, 2010 10:51 pm (UTC)
I don't know if you've seen the movie, but this gif works on many level.
Jul. 13th, 2010 10:50 pm (UTC)

"I'm on a Komodo Rhino ;)"

Haha, and yeah, othellia has done some truly awesomesauce .gifs of the movie... they've truly helped me fight my post-TLA depression.
Jul. 13th, 2010 10:53 pm (UTC)
I should make a request for one: to take movieIroh, put a big ShoopDaWoop face on him when he fires up at the oasis.
Then have a shot of the fire nation soldiers running away because THAT would be more freaky than "he's making fire out of nothing!".
Jul. 13th, 2010 11:39 pm (UTC)
XDDD I'm chargin mah lazor!!!!
Jul. 13th, 2010 11:51 pm (UTC)
where are these gifs? cannot find :-(
Jul. 14th, 2010 04:49 am (UTC)
Hmmm, sorry, I'm not sure.
Someone told me they were somewhere on Capslock Atla. I'd do my search there.
Jul. 13th, 2010 10:59 pm (UTC)
Ahahahah one of the new OS commericals was on the other day and I was sitting there THINKING of how it would go if Zhao was doing it <3 <3 still in love with the Zhao version

omg that gif I am in luv forever ;___; especially the sad sad shaking of the head at the end
Jul. 13th, 2010 11:11 pm (UTC)
I like the little M.Night smile frame just before he charges.
I don't know, it adds a little something.

Best. gif. EVER!
Jul. 13th, 2010 11:12 pm (UTC)
All credit goes to othellia
Jul. 13th, 2010 11:18 pm (UTC)
Yes, Othelia has made a quite articulate comment!

Have you seen the neat monochrome drawing DarkKenjie did 4 days ago? It's "Avatar saw Avatar .2" over at Deviantart. When I saw it I immediately thought of you peering in and saying "Too bad it doesn't have Zhao in it".
Jul. 14th, 2010 04:47 am (UTC)
I think I have seen it. I'll hop over to his gallery at some point this week just in case.
(I bought a print he did of Toph hauling Zhao's ass out of a ship).
As much as I would enjoy it if the whole world added Zhao to their works of art, it's better not to force his presence on other people.
He's already demanding enough.
Jul. 14th, 2010 01:49 am (UTC)
That was so very wrong. But really funny. :-)
Jul. 14th, 2010 04:45 am (UTC)
It's just cartoon violence- cartoon violence is fun ;)
Jul. 14th, 2010 01:59 am (UTC)
LOL! I've enjoyed your comics about the movie too. Good stuff.

Have you seen all the joy Water Tribe is bringing to the Scans_Daily community? Some (rightfully so) glowing reviews of your stuff over there. ;) http://delicious.com/scans_daily/creator:johane_matte

Aw man! *blushes!*
I wish I could tell these people "please, this is only the equivalent of a second draft! There are so many things I would try to fix, some long dialogs that badly need editing and clarity and...and...fixes to do! Augh!"

Yeah, I could nitpick this thing.
My recent work experience have taught me a lot in terms of storytelling, but also very much in the need to do rewrites. Not to be afraid to completely change things!
I think I'd need an editor, another writer or at least someone to bounce ideas off their heads.
There are ways to make this better. There are plenty of flaws with it. I just have no more time to spend on it.

But I'm glad some people are still having fun reading it. I just wish I could have made it better.

Eh, you're always gonna feel that way about your work, but you did (as far as I could see in your comments) do some editing! I felt the story was quite tight, very canon-like and in the spirit of the show! I'm sure those people in S_D would agree with me. That's why so many people were wondering if you worked on the show or were a pro, since the story read like it came straight out of the series. :) You have great ideas, whether they are fan-based or original, and of course great feel for this (and other) styles!

I think I'd need an editor, another writer or at least someone to bounce ideas off their heads.

I'd say you have a few volunteers here.
Jul. 14th, 2010 02:41 am (UTC)
I loled so hard XD I think Isaiah secretly likes Zhao too.
Jul. 14th, 2010 04:38 am (UTC)
Who doesn't secretly like Zhao? ;)
Jul. 14th, 2010 02:56 am (UTC)
Ha ha ha ha ha, I had no idea this old spice thing was A Thing. I only saw one of the commercials for the first time a few days ago. And please let me say that I love what you've done with it.
Jul. 14th, 2010 04:37 am (UTC)
The series of Old Spice commercials just keep growing and growing. Using humor always works well.
I'm actually looking forward to the next ones!
(will you be at SDCC?)

Thank you!
I guess it's good to bring back some slightly old drawings once in a while :)
Jul. 14th, 2010 06:34 am (UTC)
Those OS commercials are so full of win! XD
Jul. 14th, 2010 06:56 am (UTC)
Gif = win.

Fire Spice redux also = win.

Puppet Bender Zhao in Fire Spice commercial with puppet Hahn/M.Night...priceless.
Jul. 14th, 2010 09:00 am (UTC)
There should also be an M. Night gif version of Sokka getting whoop-de-doo on the cactus juice. XD
Jul. 14th, 2010 04:15 pm (UTC)
I've decdided that the chubby young guy they pan over briefly is Hahn. He's standing with another group of young guys as the fire nation approaches.
Jul. 14th, 2010 07:34 pm (UTC)
Hee... :D

Not going to lie, I was partially thinking of you when I made it. But then again, I think it's a bit hard for anyone in the fandom to make something Zhao related and not think of you.

Anyways, glad you like it!
