Posted by Marc van Gurp | 18-09-2010 11:15 | Category: Health



I am married, have 3 kids..Read Tarot cards , do astrology , love fringe science , write poems/ditties/short songs..smoke, drink.etc ...Enjoy reading….oh yes, I have Tourettes ( full blown, you know, swearing and aggresive jerking…) and I’m a High Functioning Autistic….Basically, I’m a dream come true..no not really, thats just silliness….

These are the words from Guy +. His videos are going round very fast on the internet right now. Tourettes F*CK Karaoke.
Organisations can spend thousands of Euros on marketing campaigns. But stories in a form like Guy + is doing have a much bigger impact. The video above, the karaoke version of the fragile R.E.M. song ‘Losing my religion’, got over to 250.000 views on YouTube.

One of the comments on YouTube: “I feel really bad asking, but is it okay to laugh?” To be honest I was laughing out loud seeing the video for the first time. But I also feel respect and he deserves it from all of us.

Listen to a interview Guy + did last night on UKHD RADIO, London, Britain (UK).
About his wife: “She have a weird sense of humor”.

Guy + about Tourette syndrome [Wikipedia]: “I do not imagine it could happen to just anyone, I was born with it but it was ‘locked’ up…to quote a description of adsd related tourettes…If you were to watch video’s of me as a child you would see it there…relax my friend if its in your gene’s then it could happen to you..if not, don’t panic….”

See more karaoke and other videos at his video channel.

His latest karaoke video: “Once again one finds oneself ticcing like a ‘mofo’ , so the only solution is to record a Tourettes karaoke version of Spandau Ballet’s ‘Gold’...”:

Branding a time-bound campaign, Forest & Bird did it.

It’s not new but it is not often used: branding for a time-bound campaign. The kind of branding used for temporary purpose. Forest & Bird did it recently for their Love Nature: Vote 2014 campaign. New Zealand’s largest independent conservation organisation wanted nature back on the political agenda. The future…

Can fundraising marketers recreate the #icebucketchallenge?

Yesterday, it finally happened. Somebody challenged me to the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS. If your internet connection has been broken all summer, it’s this year’s big meme. You can read about it here. To be honest, I felt that the movement had passed its high-water mark when I saw…
