Palate cleanser



What the hell was I thinking? The next time I start to write something about such a hot-button issue as Occupy Pittsburgh, you have my permission to reach through your computer and smack the living snot out of me. I won’t press charges or anything.

Let’s get the yucky taste of politics out of our mouths to start this holiday week off right!

PMI is a local video and media production company with offices in the Buhl Building, and the employees decided to forgo the usual holiday greeting in favor of this much more DING-DONG-A-LICIOUS one!

That’s not a euphemism!

The elevator part slayed me.

The man who first starts the singing is their CEO David Case whose online PMI profile lists his title as The Big Kahuna.

If his business card doesn’t say The Big Kahuna, I call shenanigans.

Watch the video. Get in the spirit. Forget the Occupy Pittsburgh debate.

Let’s all hug it out and kiss under the mistletoe!

You get a Tic-Tac! You get a Tic-Tac! ERRYBODY GETS A TIC-TAC!

    You used to be political but now you’re not. Goodbye…

    @Monty: what was political about the Buccos of Suckitude? Or the WTRTs? Or pigeons, for that matter? Can’t be all controversy all the time, especially in the holiday season. Cut our goddess a break, eh?

    I was paraphrasing an absurd comment from the last post. Levity failure.

    @Monty – now that it’s explained to me, it’s funny, but I was with @Butcher’s Dog originally.

    I work for PMI and thanks for putting this on your page! This was our card for 2010 and this year’s card will be sent out tomorrow. Watch Facebook (PMI) and Twitter (@PMItv) for the new video!

    Wow, someone missed the funny that is Monty. oops.

    FTR, I really liked the Occupy Pgh post. I learned more about the movement here than from FOX, NPR, or Slate — and I also learned more about people’s reaction to the protesters. It was well done. And come on, those comments were NOTHING compared to the Hittsburgh post! Those were THE BEST.
