Dear Shilpa,

This is not a spam and it is urgent. My name is Nadia Surapanpong and I am a professional, working in the films business and currently casting for a new big budget Hollywood movie. I am wondering if you and your organization at Columbia U can please post and pass along this flyer to every one you know of Asian-decent to come to my Open Casting Call this Sunday, 3/1 from 11A - 5P to be part of the new movie from M. Night Shyamalan’s new movie, The Last Airbender (in production now based on the popular series called, Avatar on Nickelodeon Channel) this Sunday, March 1st. He is the well-known director of The Six Sense, Unbreakable, Signs, The Lady in the Water, and from last year's movie called, The Happening; see his full list of credits at http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0796117/.

It is an Open Casting Call for all Asian-Americans for Night's new movie. IF by far chance you are personally interested in this as well please come to the Open Casting Call yourself, if not PLEASE tell and / or bring all of your friends who might be interested. IF they are selected, there will be paid transportation, housing and per diem for their time. It is approximately 1 – 2 weeks worth of work in Philadelphia; please read the attached flyer for all the detail info.

Any questions you can contact me directly. Thanks so much,
A few reasons why this e-mail cracks me up:
  1. THE SPELLING ERRORS ("Asian-decent")
  4. "This is not a spam and it is urgent."
Can someone please go to this audition?

    I didn't attend but it seems like it's a response to the criticism M. Night received for casting white actors to play Asian characters. Yes, there is a movie being made based on the tv series and there's quite a bit of controversy around the film, but it's real (more or less) despite the spelling errors in the email.
