An Urban Hunting Adventure

Posted by jdg | 9:00 AM | , ,

This is probably my favorite video ever. Some guy found it on a tape at the local Detroit PBS station, and it looks like a parody some PBS guys made back in the 80s to let off some steam. "Bob Vishiswa" is Tom Lamb a producer and on-air personality who retired in 2006. The brilliant Purvis Royal is Ted Talbert, a member of the Michigan Journalism Hall of Fame known for his serious documentaries about "the struggles and successes of African Americans." I think this video shows that both men had a tremendous sense of humor.

Two things to note about this video:

1. "You can pistol whip a deer if you get close enough."

"Mmm. . hmmm." [the tame Belle Isle deer used to roam freely across the island]

2. I dress exactly like Bob Vishiswa. But I wish I had Purvis Royal's hat.

Happy hunting.
