Looks like it’s more than just web fame for Ze Frank, the man of our internet dreams (well, we can’t speak for Steve, but we will). We knew sitting in front of the camera every day would finally come in handy. The New York Observer reports that Frank has hit the big time with an almost-pilot for CBS and plans for a feature film. He’s even got his own Ari:
“He was like, ‘We’ll do this, we’ll do that, we’ll pump that area.’ And I was like, ‘Wait, did you just say you’ll ‘pump that area’?” said Mr. Frank. “In a way, it was my best expectation of Hollywood. In and of itself, it was such a creative statement, I definitely felt like I could work with this guy.”
Mr. Frank then went home and made a video that incorporated the phrase into a song. He posted it on Sept. 11.
