It’s not too difficult to make a monkey out of me. But never has it been done so creatively.
Tom Morse and the crew at SAS in Cary, NC came up with some clever ways to liven up the product demo to their new data management software. I don’t pretend to understand what it does, but that doesn’t matter. SAS only needed me to provide some voices, which they then put into animation. The style is akin to the Jib-Jab folks…or as my friend and webmaster Lou Dalmaso pointed out, even more like the Terry Gilliam animations for Monty Python. I play both the super-intelligent chimp here (Dr. Peabody, aka Bobo), and the not-so-bright reporter. See if you can guess which looks more like the real RG.
Here’s a second “interview” with the starship’s computer.
Many thanks to Tom (and SAS) for permission to share.
