Man Helps Puppets Pull Media’s Strings

SAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Can playing with puppets land you a career in public relations?

One San Diego man seems to think so.

David Moye is the creator of PR Puppet Theatre, a new YouTube series where he offers publicity advice to puppets on how they can “pull the strings of the media.”

One episode features him explaining to a crab puppet why the slogan “Don’t Catch Crabs” may not be helping his cause, while another shows him trying to convince a reluctant elephant to go on a show called Morning Zoo.

Moye claims he’s doing the show out of love.

As he puts it, “Puppets have been traditionally underserved by the PR industry for too long.”

However, he also hopes his show inspires a hiring PR agency to make him their puppet.

Despite getting rave reviews for his inventiveness and humor, Moye hasn’t exactly been flooded with calls.

But he remains optimistic and adds, “I’m the only one doing this, so I basically own the puppet market.”
