"Supersize Me" director upsets faculty with speech

This has been all over the Philadelphia news today...

Spurlock, director of the documentary "Super Size Me," was invited to speak to students last Friday about what it was like to eat McDonald's food for 30 days straight. Instead, Keith, an 11th grader, says the speech went in another direction:

"It was vulgar... It made fun of anything. It pretty much had nothing to do with what his movie was about."

Reminds me of Kevin (Clerks) Smith's bizarro on stage appearance at the HVX200 roll-out and press conference in L.A. last December during DV Expo. An embarassing moment for Panasonic, one I'm sure they'd rather forget about.

If you have one hit movie, then you can be as vulgar as you like in public.
