... and never got to enjoy my time in the spotlight!
Background: About a year and a half ago, Geek Squad did a photo shoot to take images of Geek Squad Agents to potentially use with their world famous Geek Squad advertising. Such pictures are often featured with products sold in Best Buy/Geek Squad Precincts, in television or newspaper ads, or with other various forms of their advertising.
My picture is on the new Geek Squad 2GB USB Flash Drive! This product is currently being sold World Wide at Best Buy/Geek Squad Precincts for $38.99.
The front of the package says:
“Geek Squad Flash Drives Allow You To Conveniently Access And Transfer Your Data With Speed And Efficiency. Agent 142 Personally Recommends This Drive For Transporting Files, Presentations, Songs And Pictures of Little Lead Figurines Portraying Medieval Wizards Named Boulderon.”
What makes this story even more ironic is that I left Geek Squad in January 2007 to advance my career with an IBM contractor, yet Geek Squad/Best Buy still used my picture! As my former Geek Squad boss told me: “Once A Geek Squad Agent, Always A Geek Squad Agent. You are now a ‘Sleeper Agent!”
So walk into your local Best Buy store and own your very own piece of a Geek Rock Star! ;D
