@BPGlobalPR unmasked!

Read the story at TheAwl.com on Josh Simpson, L.A. comedian, as the man behind the mask.

The mystique is gone, but the idea lives on in the endless stream of parody accounts created in @BPGlobalPR’s wake.

When I wrote a piece on the fake twitter account thing a while back, I got to chat with Mule Design Director Mike Monteiro, who turned out NOT to be the hidden tweeter. Glad I did speak with him, though. He’s a funny guy on his own account, @Mike_FTW.

And so I raise a toast to Josh Simpson and his fellow Upright Citizens in Los Angeles. Thanks for bringing a bit of dark humor to an otherwise terribly unfunny situation.
