You know it’s true…just is !!
Hats off to Jacob French who recently raised $100 000 for the Starlight foundation by walking across Australia dressed as a Stormtrooper:
By covering the 3 016 miles between Sydney and Perth, Stormtrooper French got through 7 pairs of shoes and lost 26 lbs.
I just love the surreal photos above showing people going about their daily lives while a Stormtrooper pushes a stroller along the bike path. Brilliant.
Perhaps this is what happened to those lucky few on the Death Star that managed to escape the deathly grip of the Sith Lords and who escaped to settle down and live normal lives. However, not sure what job opportunities you have after having ’8 years of Death Star Stormtrooping’ on your CV !!
Well it’s true!
Something made me laugh in front of my Mac like a madman yesterday and I deemed it share worthy. Just appealed to my sense of humour
A friend and colleague, Jean-François Deschamps sent me a link to a site with the highest number of Facebook interactions I have ever seen in my life!
The Site? Jesus Daily.
And while there are sites with huge numbers of overall Facebook likes, I’ve never seen numerous specific Facebook homepage posts getting in excess of 100 000 likes and >3 000 comments, like this one below!
And then I wondered if there is someone called Jesus Daly on Facebook, not Jesus daily. And there was!
And here he is:
But I noticed that Jesus Daly (from Papua New Guinea) lists his favourite films as :
- I wasn’t that drunk
- Looks like the Wolfpack
- and Pussay Patrol
Which got me thinking again.
I wondered if Christians online that stumbled across Jesus Daly (instead of Jesus Daily) on Facebook by mistake, may be disillusioned that the son of god apparently had a preference for movies about drunks, wolfpacks and Patrols of Pussay.
I imagine they probably would be.
So I went in search of Jesus Weekly on Facebook. And here it is:
But unfortunately Christians appear to prefer daily information about the messiah, rather than on a 7 day basis, because Jesus Weekly appears to have 12 316 343 likes less than Jesus Daily and 643 less even than Jesus Daly!!!
My final bit of investigating turned up another Jesus based site, for those who want some online Jesus but not too often: Jesus Bi-Weekly!
This guy in his Facebook ‘About’ describes himself above as ‘the Facebook Jesus!’ Quite the claim for a page with 10 likes on Facebook that has a total of 800 million members!
My Conclusion ?
Jesus Daily is the Global Holy Grail for us as social media experts seeking to maximize consumer engagement with brands.
Jesus Daly likes camping and has great Pink glasses.
Jesus Weekly needs to work some miracles to increase his fanbase beyond 3 (Mum, Dad and brother?!)
Jesus Bi-weekly needs to consider launching a Jesus Tri-weekly to compete with Jesus Daily!
