Through Nov. 6, the CF Report will promote two of Rose’s “character” videos, and Rose will include a short written introduction to them by the character he’s portraying.

Today’s video is “Classic,” putting the spotlight on Mike Pritchard:

“What makes a classic?” is, in itself, a classic question. Of course there’s subjectivity involved, but is there such a thing as a Universal Classic — something that is so undeniably good it is revered by all? In my opinion, there are a few. In September of 2009 I was approached by a filmmaker named Brent Rose and asked for my expertise on all that which is Classic. What ensued was an epic exploration of all that is awesome in this world, according to me, and perhaps the debunking of a few stereotypes about “nerds.” I hope you’ll enjoy. -Mike Pritchard
