Memoirs of a Market- Savvy Sock Puppet
After 22 months in the unemployment lines, a savvier Sock Puppet is enjoying a modest comeback. Last year he landed a gig as spokespuppet for Bar None, a Pleasanton auto loan company. In September he appeared alongside former New York Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani in Times Square for the 20th anniversary of the board game Trivial Pursuit. Two months later he opened for keynote speaker Bill Gates in a video shown at Comdex, the annual Las Vegas geekfest. He has also appeared in a documentary by video artist Christian Jankowski.
Word is, he has even been approached by Hollywood producers to discuss a television sitcom.
