April Fools Bring the Zombie Jesus

This is actually a funny episode here in which I find some random stuff around Herkimer, including a horse statue named Mr. Ed (which I originally thought was put out in the window of a local building as an April Fools joke) and an advertisement outside of a church which inevitably leads to jokes about the Zombie Jesus. Plus you get to see Arthur and my latest attempt to score an HD camcorder, courtesy of a sweepstakes contest sponsored by Coca-Cola. The camcorder I am after is a Sony HD Handycam and the contest ended March 31. I have to wait until April 15 to find out if I won it. I am definitely keeping my fingers crossed.

Since Easter is officially a holiday that revolves around the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, us YouTubers have the tendency to refer to him as the Zombie Jesus. There were quite a few videos revolving around the Zombie Jesus coming out at Easter time. So this year, I too decided to jump on the bandwagon. What inspired me to do this was when I was walking home from work one day and I saw an advertisement in front of a church telling people to “beat the Easter rush” to church. That is obviously one Easter rush I just as soon avoid, being that I am not religious and all. Still I couldn’t resist the urge to take that idea and run with it.


A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Ilion Little Theater Club

I mysteriously end up getting transported back in time to Ancient Rome where I become involved a world filled with swords, sandals, Roman soldiers, beautiful dancing girls (one of whom happens to carry a whip?!) and break out in song at will.

Sounds bizarre to a regular person, right? For me, it’s just another day at the office.

Well, not quite. Actually in this vlog, I reveal one of the Mohawk Valley’s best-kept secrets: The Ilion Little Theater Club, located in Ilion, NY which is a hop, skip and a jump from Herkimer, where I live. The Ancient Rome settings that I mentioned above was their cover of the Sondheim musical “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.”
