Dumbass Sayings: “Who Recorded This? Michael J. Fox?”

Whenever you see a video that’s noticeably shaky inevitably someone will yell out “Hey who recorded this? Michael J. Fox?!” then everyone laughs because Michael J. Fox has Parkinson’s Disease. Let me straighten a few things out here. Michael J. Fox is a highly accomplished actor and has two directorial credits. If he was recording a video I’m sure he would have some sort of stabilizing device to make it watchable because he cares about the craft of film making. Also, there are plenty of other people with Parkinson’s so I don’t know why MJF gets called out so often. I suppose it’s a testament to what he’s done for the Parkinson’s community that he’s one of the most recognizable spokespeople for the disease. You never hear people say “Who recorded this? Muhammad Ali?” That would make more sense considering Mr. Ali has less knowledge of cinematography and he’s also significantly shakier.

There are way worse cameramen than Michael J. Fox.
