'American Blogger' looks cringeworthy

The official movie poster for 'American Blogger'
"American Blogger"

The trailer for a new documentary called "American Blogger" has gone viral today, having been picked up by Gawker this afternoon.

"American Blogger" is a film that documents the lives and journeys of a large and geographically diverse group of attractive women who are, apparently, maintaining blogs of some sort.

Hamilton Nolan of Gawker amusingly notes: "The American bloggers I know—with a handful of notable exceptions—look like row after row of pale, unattractive men in a dimly lit space." He then included a picture of the Gawker offices which confirmed just that.

In an attempt to answer some confusion over the name of his film and clarify what the documentary is actually about, director Christopher Wiegand posted the following update on his official website:

The name "American Blogger" came not because I am representing all of America but because I am traveling America (40 states) in my airstream and telling the story of the Blogger. This film is not supposed to be, nor is it, representing bloggers or America as a whole by any means. These are the women that said yes to my request, they knew my wife and trusted that I would tell this story in a positive way.

The laughably pompous trailer, which sounds like it was written in 2005 and declares that "this story is told against the backdrop of the great American landscape," can be viewed on file-sharing site Vimeo.

"Entertaining and educational," the trailer's narrator boasts. "This film will leave you feeling inspired. It will open your eyes to a thriving movement, that potentially, could change the world."

Perhaps, if this whole blogging thing even catches on.

Wiegand's film will be available in June on iTunes and at AmericanBlogger.com.
