This picture has made its presence known on facebook and other social networking sites as of late. Crazy to think how quickly a picture posted by one person could spread. Soon, friends are posting it then their friends post it, then their friends post, etc. etc. until there is a public awareness of it. So basically, if you haven’t seen this yet…You might be living in a closet… and it’s time to get out.
I’m including this on my blog because it is in fact inspiring. I mean, come on. How many of us actually thought about going running that day after we saw this? It sparked an idea right? Comedy in the media is powerful. In fact, one of my teachers for a journalism class said comedy is more powerful than war. He stated comedians like Steven Colbert, Jeff Foxworthy, Dave Chapelle, Bill Cosby, etc. all have power beyond measure because of their ability to create messages that impact us. We remember what they said and our emotions are stirred up enough to make us decide our own standpoint. Along with this idea of comedy being powerful, I saw a quote the other day that stated:
“The best revenge is being happy”
Just something to think about! Maybe you’ll have to create an ad or something someday… Use some comedy folks
