Peter Serafinowicz: TIME Man of the Year
Peter Serafinowicz is a comic actor and equally comic Twitterer. His tweets are typically both sumptuously silly and ironically inane, such as "Went to the gym this morning. As I left, everyone said I was the best!"
Peter Serafinowicz knows that's a joke. You and I know that's a joke. But TIME magazine does not know that's a joke. And nor does the indignant website tweetingtoohard.com ("Where self-important tweets get the recognition they deserve").
TIME asked Peter to justify his outrageously obnoxious message, and he wrote them an equally hilarious response which again, sadly, seemed to fly over their heads.
Peter Serafinowicz, I salute thee.
