Robert Ellis, "Rusty Bottoms"

posted 3/5/2015 8:05:39 AM by: timothy

I was introducted to Robert Ellis by Jeremy Dietz, one of my pals in Mission Spotlight.

I own two Robert Ellis albums, which I love. Just saw the Rusty Bottoms video which is both extraordinarily competent and also a sad commentary on how talented musicians are struggling to make it, even when people listen to music more than ever (but don't pay for it).

So, my mind set off in a whirl.

  • #RobertEllis "is just trying to make a living in a harsh artistic climate" #RustyBottoms #rant / #alternativeHistory
  • Order of events for the filming of the shaving gel content marketing video youtube by #RobertEllis.
  • #RobertEllis really hates rusty bottoms messing up his sink and invents a plastic cap that fits on the bottom of the can.
  • #RobertEllis also invents a nozzle that prevents leaking and an indicator of the remaining shaving gel.
  • After months in the patent process, #RobertEllis receives the #USPTO #patent number.
  • Then, #RobertEllis writes the song #RustyBottoms and films the video.
  • #RobertEllis flies to LA and uses it in a presentation to the shaving gel company #CEO who is ecstatic.
  • Production of #RobertEllis (TM) rusty bottom prevention devices and leak proof nozzles begins in earnest.
  • At least one worker at the #RustyBottoms factory #jumps past the soon to be installed #nets.
  • #RobertEllis becomes the controlling interest in Harry's razor company which is then acquired by #Tesla.
  • As a result of the talent acquisition, the new #Tesla is released with contextually targeted #RobertEllis marketing tunes.
  • #RobertEllis new tune #IHateCoffeeInMyLap plays in the #Tesla every time you drive by a #McDonalds, increasing coffee sales by 9,000%.
  • #Tesla coffee spill prevention device comes pre-equipped on all models. #RobertEllis patent pending.
  • #McDonalds #RobertEllis collaboration #IHateCoffeeInMyLap becomes the first song to come pre-installed on every #iDevice sold.
  • #TaylorSwift / #RobertEllis feud breaks out. She's furious that she fails to win a #Marketing #Grammy for the first time in 23 years.
  • #RobertEllis buys all of the islands in the world and spends the rest of his life growing a #righteous #beard with a #sick #fade.
