I've been getting a butt-ton of strange emails this week. This last one, perhaps, takes the cake. (It looks like it was sent out to all of the professors in the history department, too. The only info I could find on FSU Torchlight was here -- a for-profit program? That promotes big movies like this? Yuck in a bag.)

Hi, my name is Makenzie. I’m an FSU student who is interning with an independent film marketing company called the Torchlight Program. I thought you might be interested in a movie we’re assisting in opening this Friday at the Miracle 5 theater. It’s called JCVD and it’s a unique film in which Jean-Claude Van Damme portrays himself in a fictional scenario.
This film has been receiving excellent reviews from critics in other opening areas and we are excited to be able to bring it here to Tallahassee. In fact, Time Magazine honors Van Damme’s performance in JCVD, which is unlike any before, in the January issue which spotlighted 8 great movie performances. Here is a link to the full text of that article:
We’ve put a lot of work into this release because we believe it is a fine film that deserves the widest possible audience. We would really appreciate it if you could support us by coming out this Friday to see it. It would also help us out a lot if you could please let your students know about this event or just forward this email on to them.
Thanks so much for your help and we hope to see you there!
