Alex, our alter ego

This is an animated video made by my friends at The Omikron Project.

The Omikron Project is a place for ideas, discussion and action for Greece’s global image crisis. It’s group of individuals who are “sick of watching the rest of the world get fed inaccurate images of life here [in Greece] today, and wanted to do something about it.”
Omikron Project’s mission is to give people outside Greece a fuller picture of what’s going on in our country, and let them decide what to believe. It aims to show the untold side of the Greek crisis, and crush the negative stereotypes that are adding to Greece’s problems.

Europe puts Greece on eBay

Just a quick funny note on Greece’s image abroad. In a recent episode of American animated sitcom The Simpsons, created by Matt Groening, Homer was invited to a TV news program. A friend noticed that on the news crawl at the bottom of the screen there’s this:

Europe puts Greece on eBay

I wonder when is the deadline for this eBay auction, what kind of offers would be made and who would even want to make any offers at all.

You can watch the full episode here. The screenshot is approximately from 7:20.
