Oppikoppi: Stars of the Small Screen

2007-08-07 13:57
Once upon a time, nobody was famous. Then a few people were famous – but only for five minutes – TV would come and go, and your sins and great successes could be forgotten. Now everyone’s famous for about 30 seconds, thanks to cell phone video cameras. And thanks to the internet, those 30 seconds are archived forever.

That video of you getting an Africa tattoo on your inner thigh while downing Irish Car Bombs and singing “De La Rey”? Your unborn kids will laugh at it from the bedroom one day when they when their friends come over to play and they go online to look for evidence. Never mind… you can put up that video of them having a tantrum when they were four years old. That’ll teach them to whine about how they were treated badly as a kid. Ah, gotta love it.

Which brings us to Last Year’s Oppikoppi, and Last Year’s Sins. Which, for all you know, your friends captured for all time with their cell phone video camera. Well we’ve asked them to send us the video to be uploaded on our site. So get your revenge now, and send us your video or photo of them. Then you’ll both be famous, and you can laugh about it over a jagermeister or six at 2007’s Oppikoppi.

To send right now, go find the video, and send it straight from your phone to 082 008 0221 with Media in the subject line. Please also give us your name and a caption if you wanna.

See you at Oppikoppi: The way of the Dassie 2007
