***SORRY I made a mistake, the subject line should read:
"$1k a DAY"
Someone here posted a link to an ad on Spike TV's site from back in spring 2003 that sounds like it's a call for "Joes". Interesting part of the ad was that it said they would pay $10k just for participating and "playing along", with a chance for $100,000.
I find that "just play along" part VERY interesting.
He's getting paid... I wonder, do the actors know he's getting paid? This kinda makes me think he knows it's all fake, but that he's not an actor, and thus why he's so convincing as joe average. He's "playing along", like the ad calls for. And in the end the joke is on us, and on the actors.
I dunno man. I think this is testament to how brilliant this dumb idea really is, considering how it's got us debating this sort of nonsense. :-D
