Everyone who works in TV has already heard the famous audio recording, “WTF is going on in Tape?” So Chris decided to draw and animate a character to match that voice.
Here is the backstory: This was in the “Away” truck during a Braves v. Padres game in Atlanta [early 90’s]. Steve Silverman, director (now passed away) was infamous for directing like this so they started taping his headset chatter and got this gem. Knocked around on 3/4″ tape on several remote trucks for a while (multiple copies were made) until the internet came along at then it went global!
This animation was made as a loving tribute to all those weird people who have chosen to work in this strange profession called television.
