Someone get Tina S. an agent, because she’s crushing it. If this video evidences what happens when talent and dedication are guided by experience, then clearly teacher Renaud Louis-Servais is earning his bread. For everyone else lacking the skills, desire, or time, there’s always the power of imagination. Then again, who knows how much better she could become with a “certain” teacher?

Vince Vaughn and Co. Create Stock Photos To Promote ‘Unfinished Business’

I’ve gotta admit, I have some stock in this game. Unfinished Business, which comes out this Friday, March 6th, is a film I worked on back in 2013 while I was an intern at Escape Artists. But that doesn’t make this newest promotional effort any less AWESOME. Unfinished Business sees Vince Vaughn, Dave Franco, and Tom Wilkinson take their small business to Europe to compete against a giant company for a contract. The giant company is Vaughn’s former employer, hence the title of the film. To promote the film, Twentieth Century Fox teamed up with iStock by Getty Images to

Florida Teen Was Impersonating Medical Staff

Matthew Scheidt, an eighteen-year old kid, was sentenced to a year in jail after a four-felony conviction involving his impersonating a physician’s assistant after a credentialing mix-up at the hospital he was working at. Elliott already took the Catch Me If You Can jokes, and I don’t really feel like scraping bottom of the barrel with Dana Carvey bits.

When Scheidt was 17, he got a job as a desk clerk at Osceola Regional Medical Center. Everyone in the hospital needs an ID badge. So when he went to get his, his badge said that he was a physician’s assistant.

While speaking with investigators, he had this to say about the moment he got the badge:

Let’s even say that I said I was a physician assistant. Let’s even say that I was. Are you that stupid that you are just going to put me in the system as that, without any credentials or any paperwork or nothing?

So, instead of, y’know, telling HR that there was a mix-up and he needs his real badge, he decides to play doctor. For weeks he changed bandages, handled IVs and conducted exams. He even went so far as to perform CPR on someone falling victim to a drug overdose. “The only reason why I did do it was because there was nobody else in there. And I’m not going to let her die,” Scheidt said.

So, he’s not a total jerk. Or he was super lying and someone else was in there.

He was arrested in September 2011, and was allowed out on bond. And then less than five months later, he was arrested again for impersonating a police officer. Something tells me he didn’t accidentally get handed a badge and a gun and a uniform on that one.

Anyway, the kid’s going to be in jail for a year, then under house arrest for another, and then eight months’ probation. Which means if he keeps his nose clean, he’ll be, relatively speaking, on his own again around 21. Maybe then he can impersonate being a bartender.

Question: I once accidentally convinced an entire Canadian bar that I was, indeed, Canadian. Have you ever found yourself pretending to be something and convincing everyone you were that thing?
