September 8, 2011 Rejected Book Plot #161
Jon was a guy of vast interests but none more important to him than tearing down pop culture. Don’t get the wrong idea, he isn’t a critic or anything, he’s just very critical. He once did a ten minute rant outside AMC Theatres of how Cars is Doc Hollywood but animated. He isn’t wrong, really think of those movies and they are almost shot for shot the same film but he just couldn’t appreciate the forrest for the trees. It didn’t matter that one was clearly made for children and the other one was animated (hey-oh!). It got so bad that he lost most of his friends. Jon started taking out his popular culture ideals on strangers. He would write letters to the editor, which for reasons no reader could comprehend would get published. That is until one day he tried to take down the wrong movie inciting a war between those who loved Twilight and everyone else in the world.
That Guy is the story of how one guy would do anything, consequences be damned, to have his opinion be heard. Will Jon make it out alive when he gets confronted by a room full of tweens? Will he be forced to watch the entire Twilight Saga to keep his life? Along the way of self-congratulatory bull shit, will Jon actual learn that everyone is entitled to their own opinion? SPOILER ALERT: no.
