In light of the recent coverage of director Steven Brill‘s e-mail replies to Star Wars fanboys, I thought it might be time to finally share a story I’ve been sitting on this since August. When the first Drillbit Taylor movie trailer was released, I was highly critical of the preview for being unfunny, and sarcastically referred to director Steven Brill as “the ‘genius’ behind Little Nicky”. And then one night, about a month later, I received this angry e-mail from Steven Brill (note: I have censored one of the words to make it safe for work):
you are a bitter f**k and you deserve all the unhappiness and frustration that I know you feel.
the genius behind Little Nicky
I laughed out loud when I got this e-mail. And to be fair, Brill later apologized, and is as it turns out, he is really nice guy. Just don’t insult his past, present or future work.Cool Posts From Around the Web:
