4. Michael Moore Hijacks Movie Theaters With New Movie Trailer
by Brendon Connelly BDK Movie Show on WJFK


Lucky moviegoers in a very small number of theaters in NY, LA, Chicago and DC tonight ended up playing a part in the promotions for Michael Moores next documentary. The teaser trailer for Moores as-yet untitled bailout film was set for premiere in cinemas today. Perhaps the lucky cinema patrons had some inkling that something odd was going to go down tonight when, as they walked in to take their seats, they had to pass by signs telling them that they were liable to be filmed and informing them that entering the auditorium would be, in effect, giving consent for their images to be recorded and used.
The very last trailer to be screened before the movie was something of a surprise. A big close-up of Michael Moore appeared on the screen, addressed the audience directly, and told them the following:

Hi, Im Michael Moore. Instead of using this time to tell you about my new movie Id like to take a moment and ask you to join me in helping our fellow Americans. The downturn in the economy has hurt many people, people who have had no choice but to go on government assistance. Yet our welfare agencies can only do so much. Thats why Im asking you to reach into your pockets right now and lend a hand. Ushers will be coming down the aisles to collect your donations for Citibank, Bank of America, AIG, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan and a host of other needy banks and corporations. Wont you please give generously? Now, I know what youre thinking - I already gave at the bailout. And I know you did, but even if youve given in the past, give some more. It will make you feel good.

During this, ushers really did walk out amongst the patrons with buckets in hand and wearing T-shirts with the slogan Save our CEOs. I dont know if anybody dropped any cash in, or for that matter what Moores team would have done with any donated funds. Perhaps hell actually try and pass it on to the ailing institutions and film the ensuing events for the film? Sounds like a possible Moore move.

6. In Revolutionary France, those bankers would've had their heads taken off.
They are so fortunate that the American people are so passive in the face of such abuses.
