After collaborating on Bob's autobiography, The Hardcore Truth, we thought it would be fun to get together when he was in England and put together a short film, a little "something extra" for those who bought the book and were so encouraging of our work on that. The concept came from what Bob experienced on a daily basis for more than 15 years as part of WWE - being interrupted by an overzealous fan at the least convenient of times and we thought, by turning the tables and having Bob play the fan rather than the famous person, it would ask viewers to consider how *they* would feel if they were constantly interrupted during their daily routine. All handled in a playful, tongue in cheek manner, Bob assures me that he was never interrupted by somebody else THIS much - nor ever reacted the way I do in the short!!!
