I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.

    Thankfully I missed the original commercial when it first ran, but I do recall hearing the “WHASSUP” catch phrase parroted by a few (now former) friends of mine – it’s funny how little it can take to sell beer (I guess Budweiser is considered beer) – I gotta say that there are some pretty colors in this “remix” – I assume the remixers were inspired by the unfinished BOOTSY COLLINS cartoon pilot…

    As brilliant as that is let’s not overlook the Jewish version that was also always needed.
