Cool, now I'll know where to look when I forget who I am, as I don't have a Ralph's card, or need one, as I rarely ralph anymore.

Ollie, have you posted anything about how that VW ad came to be? That may be an interesting tale.

Thanks for asking, dude.

I attended the L.A. Lebowskifest, courteously invited by Will and Scott to deliver the opening benediction on the first night. I read the "Dude's Prayer" - written by Rev. John Jansson - the Swedish Jeff from the Dudespaper. It went over like lingonberry pancakes. I'm sure you've seen the video at the Dudespaper:
http://dudespaper.com/the-dudes-prayer-at-lebowskifest.html/

I asked Will and Scott if I could sell some stuff at the second night bowling party to help defray the costs of my flight in from Thailand and they said no problem so I set up a booth selling ordination kits. This attracted a bunch of the press and among them was a group of flimmakers who had been contracted by VW to seek out folks for whom a particular movie had changed their lives. They quickly gleaned that such a transformation had happened to me. I blathered enthusiastically for their camera and they asked if they could follow up and expand the bit by filming me talking about Dudeism and the Big Lebowski at various spots around L.A. I must have talked for hours, but they selected the salient bits and assembled it into the commercial you've seen.

The commercial was not shown on TV but before films at 550 independent movie houses in the UK. So despite some criticism I've received for "shilling" for VW, truth is that the money mainly helped support independent movie houses in that country.

All in all it was a fun fucking day. They got me drunk on white russians, had me commandeer a bowling lane and blather to my heart's content. I must admit that it was a bit embarrassing to watch at first but now I dig it. Hope you all do too.

Yes we do. There is a saying that a picture is worth a thousand words, well, a movie is worth a thousand pictures, which makes for one million words, which makes for, well, I'm lost a little.
Oh yes, I'm sure the movie will spread the Dudeish word a lot. Well done.

Cool ad.  Too bad Ford doesn't make the Torino anymore, though...

I inadvertantly met a fellow Dudeist at the local brewery.  He took his computer and shrank his Ordination Certificate and had it laminated.  A card-carrying Dude.  Cool.
At least I'm housebroken.

Men, there's a reason why the forumdude is the forumdude. Thailand is part of the rug that ties this big room together, if you know what I mean.  8)

Well, you know, the surrounding environment has some importance in helping not only to conceive but also to keep you relaxed and your mind limber. Thailand I guess is one of those places. Like Hawaii, Polinesia and so on. Am I wrong? Or am I just an asshole?
