Gosh, I'm a "reputable influencer"

»

I had an amusing email yesterday which I can't resist sharing (I've removed the name of the movie to which it refers):

I just found your Kissing Jessica Stein blog entry: http://the-hug.org/opus78.html, and I think you may be of some help to me. I'm reaching out to you on behalf of M80 & FOX regarding [details of film and plot]. Since you mentioned Kissing Jessica Stein, I thought that you might be interested in posting the press release or post a review of the film on your blog? You seem like a reputable influencer, so I think you'd be a big help to us. Please let me know if you're interested!
Thanks!
[contact details]

I replied saying it doesn't seem to be on at any of our local cinemas or available from Amazon UK (it is from Amazon US, due for release in a couple of weeks) and would he like to send me a DVD ...
 


Update 2006-06-27:

While we were away on our hols he replied saying he would gladly send me a DVD. So watch this space I guess.

(This isn't the first time this has happened incidentally: earlier this year I had a company who were about to market some alcohol free wines in the UK offer me some bottles to try after they saw my page on living a no/low alcohol life.)
