Neil Kramer's 'American Blogger' Parody Is the Funniest Thing You'll Watch All Week

By now you've probably heard about American Blogger, the movie that promises to "change the way you see an entire industry." But have you seen Neil Kramer (and his shirt collection) in What is Blogging? His movie astutely notes that a blog is a way "to give them the information they don't want or need."
What is Blogging Trailer:
Though both films document the most important industry of all time, they have very little in common. Chris Wiegand, creator of American Blogger, interviewed white, well-groomed women who are friends with his wife. Neil Kramer interviewed white, well-groomed women he thinks are hot.
Where Wiegand's film is there to "remind you of the value of your voice," Kramer's works hard to convey that blogs tell a friend, "I'm better than you are. I have page views."
And Kramer's film contains the only black blogger in the world. IN THE WORLD. How he landed an interview with Arnebya is a total victory for Kramer as a filmmaker.
But Wiegand's film cannot be discounted, even though he doesn't have an interview with Arnebya. It's "entertaining and educational" and will leave all of us feeling inspired... to write a blog post! Blogging, after all, is a "thriving movement" and who wants to be left behind, languishing in notebook-land, when you can get your thoughts out there. After all, his film asks what is the point of having experiences if you don't write about them? If you haven't seen the video, here it is in all its enlightened glory:

Kudos to the hysterical (and hot) bloggers in the film:
