The bells are ringing at Third Leg Studios as they reach yet another monumental milestone in their ascent to stardom. The news is everywhere and I can confirm first hand that the rumours are true. They have just received their 25th subscriber!
It is hard to believe that this small troupe of professional film-makers could hit the big two five mark after only a few short months in the industry. When asked what their secret was the boys from Third Leg simply stood up and said in unison “it is because we are leg”, before sitting back down together in perfect synchronisation.
This strange response baffled me at first but then I realised what they meant. Like many of the productions made by Third Leg, one has to read between the lines to extract its deeper meaning. A leg is not only a structure necessary for support and stability it is also one’s main point of connection to the ground. And it is that message, I believe, that the boys were trying to convey: “we are leg” i.e. “we stay grounded”. There can be no doubt that this unparalleled humility is a major driving force behind their success.
Whatever they are doing seems to be working. Fans everywhere have been lauding them incessantly. “They are really good,” said Joel’s mum. “Those boys are brilliant,” remarked someone else. One thing is clear. They have the public behind them. There can be no argument there.
