Security Guard and Engineer Appear on Ellen
m still reporting on: Security Guard and Engineer Appear on Ellen, 1847 Synopsis:Vegas security guard, Jesus Campos, and Mandalay Bay engineer, Stephen Schuck appeared on the Ellen show this afternoon. Since I was wrong about Campos being among the living, I’m going to err on the side of timidity in analyzing this 9-minute interview. Plus, I’m a bit worried about being hit with a copyright infringement strike, so I’m just going to hit a few points. I’m sure that by the time this is up, on Ellen’s site. First of all, Ellen is the perfect vehicle for Campos’s one and only appearance. Why? Because MGM – the owner of the Mandalay Bay is funding an Ellen slot machine game. MGM is a very powerful supporter of her financially and politically. [insert: Ellen at MGM Grand] To me, this was the most soft-ball interview in the history of the world, but Beth says that this is just Ellen’s style – non-confrontational. The most important thing to realize is that the main goal of this interview was to drive home a theme that Campos is so broken up by his experience that this would be his only interview, lest he has to relive the event over and over again. If you watch the entire interview, you’ll see this theme predominating. So, here’s the first few seconds. [insert] Wow! Look at this face. Campos is remarkably composed for being the first time on big-league TV and all. Impressive guy. [insert: “Yeah, I imagine…” ] There it is the predominant theme that justifies why Campos won’t be submitting to a harder-hitting interview where he might be asked some potentially really embarrassing questions, like: exactly where were you treated for your leg wound and when? [insert: “Yeah, and how are you doing?…. we’re working to get over this.”] Look at Campos. Does this guy look upset? No. Is he on the verge of tears? No. When men are about to lose their composure in a public setting they don’t look at you full-faced, they bow their heads to hide it.
