In this week’s video, VentureBeat does a dramatic reading of one of the most entertainingly stupid email chains ever to see the light of day.
A one-man agency, Ocean Marketing, destroyed itself this week when its principal, Paul Christoforo, sent a ridiculously over-the-top, rage-fueled series of emails to a disappointed customer — and then dug himself in even deeper by continuing the same rant with Mike Krahulik, the publisher of the immensely popular web comic Penny Arcade and organizer of a popular videogame convention, Pax.
We were so amused by the emails that we couldn’t resist putting our own video interpretation of some selected excerpts. We did our best to read these selections verbatim, in all their bizarre, douchey, ungrammatical glory.
And yeah, I know I look ridiculous. I’ve rarely had so much fun at work since I got to play Rambo with my coworkers. Happy New Year.
