After students wrote their own journal entries, letters, short stories, or what have you, I would share the real story behind the ad. I would also ask them to write another journal based on the real story - a reaction or another short story. John Silveira has created a 13 year journey of imagination with those few lines - and according to him - the mullet does not even belong to him some guy added his picture to the ad claiming it was him - oh - geez.
John Silviera even signed a movie contract based on this small writing - and oh -I have high hopes for this movie!
Here is the real story - I hope you are inspired like I am.
