Video: “Romania sabotages Travel Journal Poll”

Episode 002: Have you seen travel journals lately? Most are bulky, frilly, over-the-top books with wide-ruled paper (ie unusable), arty paper with background motifs ON THE PAGES, not to mention covers that beat “travel” over the head with retro maps or illustrations of jet-set couples toting vintage bags. Or maybe it’s just me? I wanted to know, so on behalf of THE RIGHT PANTS, held a “travel journal poll.” Unfortunately, all this gesture of goodwill sunk like shot ships when the 11-second sponsor of Episode 001 — Romania — intervened repeatedly leading the premature conclusion of the show.

Note: Romania’s great. But as a sponsor? Sometimes you have to be careful what you wish for. See the (apparently) offending 11-second sponsor below:
