Get to know America's next president. The man behind the meme. The mind inside the boot.
Vermin Supreme is running for president of America. It's time the world knew a little bit more about him. I'm following him on 2012 Presidential campaign trail and exploring his mysterious past to unearth the true story of the man behind the meme.
You may know Vermin from his well known appearance here:
...at the Lesser-Known Democratic Candidates Presidential Forum in New Hampshire.
Vermin Supreme's four-plank platform is simple, yet elegant:
1) Mandatory tooth-brushing laws.
2) Zombie preparedness.
3) Fully-funded time travel research.
4) Free ponies for all Americans.
This documentary will chronicle the true story of the man inside the boot, exploring Vermin Supreme's history as an activist and political prankster, and capturing the bubbly essence of his explosive ride to the White House in 2012.
Who Is Vermin Supreme?
Where does he come from?
What does he dream about?
Why were his friends escorted out of the Russian wilderness at gunpoint and how did he escape to safety?
Why did he leave a goat at his friend Jane's house for a night?
How did he end up on the Jerry Springer show with a cannibal suicide cult?
When will he finally take his rightful place in the Oval Office?
We've got an extensive arsenal of fascinating and one-of-a-kind rewards up for offer (keep scrolling...), including some of Vermin Supreme's prized possessions, busts sculpted by acclaimed professional museum model-maker and FX artist Christian Hanson, and limited edition prints.
UPDATE: We've slashed prices on video tapes from Vermin's personal archive. These are really cool because they feature footage from Vermin Supreme's history as an activist and political prankster, some of which can be found nowhere else, but we recognize that not everybody has $150 or more lying around, so we've reduced prices as follows:
VHS: $150 --> $105
Video8: $160 --> $110
DVCam: $175 --> $120
Remember: Vermin Supreme will personally sign and hand decorate your tape, and, as with all rewards above $100, you'll also receive a "Who Is Vermin Supreme?" 1/2 scale Vermin Supreme Bust.
UPDATE: Here's a video of Christian Hanson getting started on the 1/2 scale bust. His creature shop is really incredible:
