    Joe Pytka's Friday Forum presentation: "...SKIP AD IN THREE..." Bio: Joe Pytka studied fine arts at what is now Carnegie Mellon University, then, brief- ly, Chemical Engineering at the University of Pittsburgh. After working at a small industrial film company and then briefly running a post production department for MGM Telestudios in New York, he returned to Pittsburgh to film a number of award-winning documentary and dramatic films for WQED. He then partnered with Rift Fournier to form a production company, Fournier/ Pytka, to produce documentaries independently with an occasional foray into commercials. Pytka’s attention eventually turned more to commercials. At the same time, he experimented with an early music video format in his documen- tary, MAGGIE’S FARM, and a short film with Steve McQueen. The latter brought some notoriety and attention and his commercial career began to flourish. His work with the legendary McCabe and Riney won many international awards. After breaking with Fournier, Pytka formed an association with Rick Levine and then went out on his own. His work with Riney included Blitz Weinhard Brewery, Gallo Winery’s Bartles and Jaymes Wine Coolers, and Perrier. It is considered some of the greatest work in advertising history. His Pepsi work, especially, is also considered historic and garnered many awards, including the Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival. His work with Wieden and Kennedy for Nike has also been called been called groundbreaking, especially the work with Jim Riswold and Stacy Wall. Pytka has become known for his work with celebrities and athletes, including The Beatles, Madonna, Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, Tom Hanks, Marlon Brando, Wayne Gretsky, LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, and President Obama, among many others. In addition to commercials, Pytka has done two films, LET IT RIDE, a critical and commercial mess although it became a Siskel and Ebert ‘guilty pleasure,’ and SPACE JAM, a hugely profitable movie based on his commercials for Nike and McDonald’s. Pytka has won two Cannes Grands Prix and seven Palmes d’Or. He also was given two special Lions for best directing and best production for the first fifty years of Cannes. He has been called a ‘genius’ (by Ad Age), and likened to Wolf Larson, the monstrous villain of Jack Lon- don’s THE SEA WOLF (by Steve Hayden, the writer of Apple’s 1984). Pytka scoffs at the genius observa- tions and points out that he and Hayden have worked together for twenty five years. In that time their work for IBM took that brand from a negative worth of fifty million to a positive somewhere north of a hundred BILLION today, and isn’t that what advertising is all about?

        Sent to me by a mysterious person in the mail who saw Haunted Good Burger. "Hi Steve, I recently watched Haunted Good Burger and I too have a very strange film that seems to be of the same origin. It started when I was ripping a DVD of Space Jam that I found in a thrift store to my computer I noticed that it seemed to be a VHS version copied onto the DVD. When I went to view the ripped files straight from the disc it was full of glitches. I thought it was pretty interesting. When I went to upload the files to YouTube there were obvious issues and the videos were appearing all black with no sound. I finally found a compression method that worked using a very old mp4 conversion method on a Russian video sharing site. I uploaded it in clips to YouTube, but started getting strange take-down notices. The videos disappeared from YouTube and I have since re-compressed the video and figured I would send it to you. It's very disturbing and seems to to be very close to Haunted Good Burger. Hopefully you can find a way to upload it somewhere."

                Following a raucous set at the Casbah in 2010 the assembled crowd demanded more music be played. Justin Jay, Lain Weck, Jason Cardenas, and Brian Garbark replied that they simply had no more songs. Shortly thereafter this happened.
