Wanna see something C-R-A-Z-Y?

See this DVD cover? Yeah, that's my brother Tyler's and sis-in-law Meagan's bodies connected to Greg Kinnear and Radha Mitchell's heads.

Tyler and Meagan were asked by this fantastic photographer to do a photo shoot about a year and a half ago. They signed releases for the photographer to sell the images as stock photography in exchange for getting to keep all the images for their personal use. Well.... these images have sold tens of thousands of times, and now we see them in product packaging, on websites, everywhere. I have to admit that this DVD cover takes the cake, though. It is pretty weird to see my brother's body connected to the head of someone famous!

that IS crazy! We released some of Alayna's baby pictures. She's going to show up in Halmark any day now ;) Praying with you for your mom.

This blows my mind everytime! We see them ALL the time! And EVERY time it makes me mad that they aren't making money on the deal! :)

Hey girl - your bro is also on hdgreetings.com in some video footage. I was looking at the site yesterday for work and was a little freaked out when I saw them! :)

Kinda weird for me too. Thanks for pointing it out. I can't imagine what was wrong with using the actor's bodies in that shot.

Loving you from afar!

ps - did you get the e-mail from me a few weeks ago. I may have the wrong e-mail address?

Sarah, It IS crazy all the places they've been popping up, huh?

The good thing is that they really have been compensated for this in a way- they got several thousand dollars worth of wedding and engagement photography free for signing the releases, and this is the arrangement they agreed to, so it's really all fair. I do think the photographer has made a KILLING off of these photos, so I'm happy for her about that! I think if they do any more of these shoots, Tyler and Meagan may see if they can renegotiate. Pretty wild!

The funny thing is that I totally recognized that as being Tyler and Megan's bodies and was completely confused because I thought they had branched out into show-business! Ha!

I see them everywhere, Riss--I think FamilyLife must have the whole file!--but this really does top it! Wow. Cool!

Saw a picture of Tyler and Meagan on Letterman last night in an FTD joke that he did. So crazy!
