“Pre-bits” Joining Obits

Humor columnist Art Buchwald died in early 2007.  Prior to his death he created a video obituary with the New York Times that would be available to the public following his death.  It was wildly popular – hearing from the humorist in his own words after his death.

The concept struck the obituary writer at the Miami Herald as a great idea.  He is now asking for pre-bit candidates to contact him for possible stardom following death.  One needn’t be famous – just have lived an interesting life.

This is an interesting twist on personalization of one’s death.  Certainly the pre-bit could play at the funeral or memorial service. 

Anyone out there interested in creating their own pre-bit?
