Work Worn: A Parody

When The Wall Street Journal style blog “Work Wear” recently featured Simon & Schuster employees, my friend and co-worker, Kevin Myers, a producer at Simon & Schuster, told me he thought it was both fantastic publicity and ripe for parody. I agreed. So we did.

The Backstory
Kevin and I have been trying to collaborate on something for years, but it never worked out before. When he asked me if I’d help him make this parody happen, I quickly grabbed my camera, he started making phone calls, and away we went.

“We kept giggling like 10-year-olds the whole time,” Kevin says. “Every idea got funnier and funnier, but we knew that we didn’t want to be mean, or to mock anyone in the original feature. I hope other people enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it.”

Me, too! And big thanks to our fellow S&S employees (Matt, Richard, Trish, Siena, Kelli, Sally, Stuart, Paul and Brant) who were willing to strut their stuff for us. We appreciate it!

Kevin’s extra energy is usually spent doing flying trapeze and volunteering with The Trevor Project . He’s also hard at work on a few upcoming TV and Broadway projects. Pay attention, world, this man is brilliant, and I’m honored to get to laugh with him every day of the work week.

I equate April Fool’s jokes with tickling. They both make me want to punch the perpetrator in the throat. But hey, if they’re your thing, you’ll find a lot to love in this blog post, and the subsequent comments (linked below the photo). I hope your victim has the same warped sense of humor as these people do. And turns the light on before going to the bathroom in the middle of the night. You’re welcome.
