Ozzy Osbourne Signing At Warwick’s: A How-To Video

This video is hilarious! It's also the perfect use of the internet and all of its promotional possibilities by an independent, family-owned business with a clever staff (Full Disclosure: my boyfriend works at Warwick's. According to sources, he had nothing to do with the video save a brief cameo at the beginning, reading a newspaper. The director says he "dialed it in.").

I've never seen Scott Ehrig-Burgess, star of the infomercial, with his hair down. It took Ozzy to make it happen!

Ozzy Osbourne will be signing copies of his book "I Am Ozzy" at Warwick's bookstore in La Jolla on Friday, February 19th. Want to attend? Here are your instructions, courtesy of Scott and the Warwick's crew.

I think he "phoned it in" rather than being "dialed in" to anything. It looked like crippling stage fright to me. (Hey, how 'bout that AWESOME camera work, though?)

Ahhh, yes, you're right, the phrase is "phoned it in." And, I think the director actually said "mailed it in." Either way, we can all agree, the performance was uninspired. I suspect there's untapped talent there though.

The camera work was great, but I was hoping for one long continuous take like "Rope" or the one in "Atonement." We just need to get you a steadicam and a megaphone.
