File this under 'brilliantly bad'.
Steve Gadlin is, according to his own website, " a web developer, writer and comedian living in Chicago, Illinois". He has created a website where, for a small fee, he will draw a cat for you. His promotional video plays like an SNL skit, but send your request with $9.95, and he will indeed create a primitive, but personalized drawing of a cat in whatever situational gag you request. You know those guys at amusement parks who do the "big-head" caricatures as a take-home souvenir? This is a poorly drawn version of that.
This is not a joke insofar as it really exists, Steve is not misrepresenting himself in any way; it's a joke's-on-us stunt with an Andy Kaufman angle that allows us to be suckered with our eyes wide open.
Steve appeared on the show Shark Tank, where he accepted an offer of $25K from Mark Cuban, owner of Landmark Theaters and the NBA's Dallas Mavericks.
