Let me be blunt – I'm a truly shameless self-promoter. So much so, in fact, that I actually hired a poet the other day (technically, a poetess) to compose an ode to everyone's favorite mildly obscene-looking photography accessory.
Errrrhhhh... That would be the Nasty Clamp.
Now, poetry might seem like an odd medium to use for promoting a somewhat phallus-shaped photography tool, but the simple fact that poetry is an odd medium for promoting such a product makes the promotion (and the product) stand out. And – what the hell – I've been wondering just what a "Nasty Poem" might look/sound like.
The whole process of hiring and having the poem created took just a few days, and words alone cannot express just how pleased I am with the poem – truly, truly inspired. Also, I absolutely love the dramatic reading that "Miss Optimistic" (the poetess) posted up on YouTube. Here 'Tis:
Wow! Absolutely perfect! So good, if fact, that I'll soon have Miss Optimistic wax poetically about the Nasty Flag. Watch for that post within the next few weeks.
Also, if you'd like to hire Miss Optimistic to write a short poem or rap for you, be sure to check out her "for hire" page here.
