Meet Alex Weber, a broke actor who is thinks that his experience in being the opposite of a rousing success can help others achieve the very success and happiness that has avoided him as of late. He’s apparently a “do as I say, not as I do” kind of guy. (Just kidding. We know Alex. He’s a real treat of a human being. Absolute aces.)
Here’s what he had to say about the experiment.
“Who better to give life advice than a college grad who now does make-believe for his career?
I had this idea, and figured I’d cruise to the Venice Boardwalk – picture Time Square with more drum circles – and set up shop to hand out free pearls of life insight.
I didn’t know if anyone would actually come up, but it was crazy the number of people who opened up to me. Divorce, sex, life crisis, being homeless. It was pretty nuts and very cool to connect with so many different types of people.
For sure doing it again, maybe Rodeo Dr in Beverly Hills. “Stop cheating.” “See your kids.” Etc could be fun!”
