Far be it from us to take complaints unprofessionally. When we used a photo of Bill Gates playing an Xbox with a random gamer, that random gamer – one Lee Thomas, X-Tag LeeX81 – wrote to us accusing us of “misrepresenting” his “gaming allegiences”. Never mind that the photo was in the public domain, or that the completly inoffensive joke was targeted at Mr. Gates, not his strapping young friend. We tastefully complied with Lee’s wishes.
With three years of hindsight, we now realise that our treatment of the matter could have easily been mistaken for mockery. Far be it from us to turn one man’s genuine concern into a laughing matter.
Click on the below picture to hear us definitively establish our respect for Mr. Thomas’s plight in the medium of rock.
The backing track is lifted from the promotional children’s single “Seymour Rock” (Seymour, as you know, being the terrifying CGI frog mascot of Overflow, the now-defunct North Queensland, Australia bargain warehouse chain).
Out of respect to the original copyright holder, we have also included the oddly alluring original song.
If you enjoy the above item, you’ll be pleased to know we’re working suspiciously hard and with un-Rubber-Chicken-like devotion on a new ongoing audio project.
I don’t want to give anything away, but it’s a podcast.
