Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) April 12, 2006
Nerds and geeks from across the globe are praising the new 25 minute mini-documentary titled Brentumentary (http://www.thewetcat.com/?p=113) about a day in the life of super nerd Brent Simon. "That was the greatest 25 minutes of my life!" and "Brent Simon you're a hero and you empower a generation" are just a few of the many comments received by Brent's new cult following of fans.
Why does this overweight, 27-year-old grocery store clerk have a cult following? Because of two very popular videos that spread across the Internet like the ebola virus. These two videos featured a then unknown fat guy rocking out to his keyboard and singing songs about the Internet and how much fun he had at Space Camp. His clever lyrics impressed all the geeks and his talented piano playing skills impressed everyone else.
At the end of the videos, it alluded to a then unreleased "Brentumentary" and gave a website (http://www.thewetcat.com) for more information. As a result, fans began keeping tabs on Brent and anticipated the release of the documentary.
Brent was contacted by a Florida radio station 104.1 who had been playing the songs on their evening humor show called "The Hideout." They interviewed Brent live on the air and both became big fans by the end of the interview. And they were as anxious as ever to see the Brentumentary.
The Brentumentary was the idea of Jeff Finley, artist and creative entrepreneur. It was at a friendly game of bowling where the idea came about. Brent did not think he was serious.
The next day, Brent woke up with three people and a video camera in his face much to his surprise. Jeff and his crew followed Brent as he performed his daily routine.
Amidst his routine was an astonishing display of clever songwriting and piano playing. An unexpected surprise for everyone. Jeff knew he had something special and released those videos into the public. People began forwarding the videos to their friends and family members. Bloggers on technology related websites were posting about him. Everyone was talking. He garnered much praise and quickly built of a fan base of nearly 3,000 friends on MySpace.
Will the life of Brent ever be the same? How long will his 15 minutes last?
