Ask Woot! Anything: Creative Team

600x250_blogpost

Welcome to our third in the “Ask Woot! Anything” series where we yank staffers from anonymity and put them in the forums with you to answer questions! Nothing is off limits! That doesn’t mean we’ll answer everything. A little bit of mystery is good in a relationship, right?

So gather up your questions. Warm up your typing hands. We’re ready for you! Well, we’ll be there anyway.

Hi! I’m totally not Matt and I write copy for stuff and junk with words. And video. And I get people sandwiches, if they ask. Can I get you a sandwich?

Wooty McFly here! I’m a junior writer, and I’m pretty sure that title was given to me because I’m shorter than @notmatty. I’m talking hobbit short.

  • I will try anything once.
  • My favorite movie of all time is The Princess Bride. It’s a classic. A CLASSIC.
  • I laugh at my own jokes, still working on getting other people to laugh.
  • I quote lines from movies in real life all the time.
  • I once auditioned for SNL

I’m not married, I’m an Aries and when I do settle down, I absolutely want someone to quote this entire scene as my officiant:

Hi - I’m PurpleRain08 and yes that means I LOVE LOVE PRINCE! Also, if you ask any question about Storm from X-Men, we can be best friends (my single best gift of all-time was getting 40 years of the X-Men on DVD). I’ve had the awesome opportunity of leading the super folks on the marketing team at Woot! Came here with 20+ years from CPG - General Mills, ConAgra Foods, The Hershey Company, etc. Let’s have fun together!

Where is a search or category feature. You have a lot of crap to sort through it would really help!

How much alcohol does the creative team consume per day in order to fuel the Woot vibe in your creations? I feel like @davejlives should have a separate metric from the rest of the team.
