Walt Mosspuppet: The return of the fake blog


Fake Steve Jobs put on the map the wonderful insanity of the fake celebrity blog. (I'm sure there were others before Fake Steve Jobs, but that's the one that made it cool and hip.) Copycats sprung up, from Fake Steve Ballmer to Mock Mark Cuban, but none of them really had the staying power of good old Fake Steve Jobs.

(movie trailer voice) Until now.

Introducing Walt Mosspuppet, a fake video blog starring a puppet version of the technology reporter.

I love this guy.

    I don’t care much for Twitter, but I was a big fan of the fake Christopher Walken Twitter account.  Alas, it was shutdown and the new one just doesn’t have the same feel.

    P.S.  Nice captchas; I wonder how effective they will be.

    John: at least they’re readable. Nothing annoys me more than a CAPTCHA that no human being can read.

    almost everything from hogg studios is good. sometimes a few too many canadian references, but generally applicable.

    There can never be too many Canadian references

    Do we really need a fake Steve Ballmer? I mean, the real deal’s already funny enough (monkey dance, anyone?).

  8. You mean the monkey dance is funny? I find it rather sad… Ballmer (the real one) should know where to stop. Maybe reading the Fake Steve Ballmer blog would help him O:-) .

    "No magazines!  No more puppets!  Mossburger! I wanna see Mossburger! Or did he jump out of a window too?"
