VidTO: Jorgie Porgie Hustles It


[ - click video to play - ]

"Do you like conscious conscientious hiphop?"

If you haven't met (or been pitched by) Jorgie Porgie or at least know someone who has, you need to get out onto our streets more often. He's always out and about - in Queen West, the Annex, Parkdale - and he's always hustlin'. He makes homebrew hiphop and does his own street-level CD selling, and based on this here YouTube find it looks like he's producing a show of sorts - about hustlin' in Toronto. It looks like he's made a DVD sale or two already.

In this teaser for "The Jorgie Porgie Show" he and his video crew talk their way into Ontario Place for free and are given a guided tour. Jorgie Porgie also jokingly (I hope) demonstrates his lack of skills at basketball.

For a teaser, I feel that we could have been teased a little more. Seeing Jorgie at the top of the waterslides or running the projectors in the Cinesphere would have been impressive.

Has anyone ever taken the CD or DVD pitch and care to comment on the products?
