State of South Carolina address

I'm sure by now you have seen the video of poor Miss Teen South Carolina, Caitlin Upton, answering the question about why she feels 20% of Americans can't find the US on a map. If you would like to book her for an appearance:

Please contact us(them) at 803.648.6220 or send an email to: info(at)

Not the best answer to be sure but here's a story with what we're really dealing with. A co-worker's wife works at an area high school teaching freshman.

These are the top 10 videos of famous people before they were famous. A couple of these I remember but had no idea that I would be watching these people on TV in the future. I distinctly remember #9 and #5. Remember the Heinz Ketchup commercial where the guy places the ketchup bottle on the edge of the building, then orders a hot dog from a vendor beside the building and catches the falling ketchup on his hot dog? Yeah, that was Matt LeBlanc aka Joey Tribbiani. Check it out.

#5 was a Super Nintendo commercial when the system first came out and featured lots of games. There was wind and lightning and a chain link fence keeping the crazed hordes away from the mythical Super Nintendo. The guy fortunate enough to be playing the games was none other than Paul Rudd of Clueless, 40 Yr. Old Virgin, and Anchorman fame.

Please, please check out the #1 video. It's Bruce Willis in a Seagram's Wine Cooler ad. Unbelievable.

Enjoy your Wednesday.
