A number of you who watched our Rudy Giuliani 9/11 commercial spoof in yesterday's episode of TPMtv have written in to ask, "Did you re-use any of those Giuliani 9/11 moments for effect? Were there any repeats? Or was every single clip a unique Rudy milking 9/11 moment?"
Well, don't tell him I told you this. But TPMtv producer/editor Ben Craw was actually kind of hurt that the question was even asked. Because, yes, every clip is unique. I actually handcuffed Ben to his editing chair and told him I didn't want to see him again until he came back with the montage of Rudy's moments trying to exploit 9/11 all the way to the White House.
Anyhow, by the time Ben was done putting the thing together he was pretty much fried. So even he didn't know how many individual clips were used.
