As talks between the WGA and AMPTP drag on into a fourth day, disheartening–but not-altogether surprising–rumors of feet-dragging on the part of studios and networks abound.
Fortunately, during this media black-out we’ve still got YouTube to keep us occupied. In addition to United Hollywood’s YouTube collection, there’s the impressive series of “Speechless” PSAs conceived by director/writer George Hickenlooper and writer Alan Sereboff, featuring a veritable profusion of A-list talent.
But that’s only a fraction of what’s out there. A quick YouTube search for “WGA strike” turns up over 600 videos, some by fans and some by striking writers, including the gem below. (For never was a story of more woe than this of a striking writer and his network exec–especially when it’s set to the dulcet strains of “I’d Really Love To See You Tonight.”)
And now that song’s going to be stuck in your head all day, too. You’re welcome.
