Crasher Squirrel Popping Up Everywhere


Even if you somehow managed to miss my recent blog post on “Crasher Squirrel,” by now you’ve likely seen the famous image of the photogenic fur ball, or one of the thousands of Photoshopped, squirrel-enhanced images sprouting up like acorns across the Web. Now Boyd Matson, host of National Geographic Weekend, has gotten a one-on-one interview with squirrel-crashed photographer Melissa Brandts.

NG Weekend producer Ben Shaw created a video using squirrelly images and Boyd’s interview, and posted it on Facebook. Check it out there, or catch the full interview this weekend on the Salem Radio Network, XM Satellite Radio, or as a free podcast through iTunes!
