Fox 8 must be following us on Twitter! They got Mike Polk to talk about his Hastily Made Cleveland Tourism Videos. "If we can all laugh at each other and with each other, I think it's rather cathartic," says the comedian and viral video creator.
He reacts to Positively Cleveland's competing video contest, which we reported on yesterday. "That's exciting," Polk says. "I hope that some people really submit some good things. And I hope that it's effective and everybody moves back [to Cleveland]."
Reporter Suzanne Stratford takes a laptop with her to get man-on-the-street reactions to Polk's videos. A guy at the Barking Spider says you ought to be able to make fun of your hometown. A guy on East 4th Street disagrees. "It's almost like a hate video," he says. "It's a travesty that someone who lives here would think that way."
Polk, tastefully clad in a wife-beater T-shirt, picks up on the hate theme. "I've actually gotten some death threats," he says.
