Forget Flat Stanley… Can You Spot “GLI Mike”?
Posted on November 7, 2013 by Marc Conklin
If you’ve been the parent of an American elementary student, chances are pretty good that you’ve met “Flat Stanley”. In a really fun educational experience, children bring home a picture of a guy who looks like this:
…which they then color, cut out, and mail to people that they know who live in other places, along with a request to mail back a photo with Stanley experiencing their part of the world.
For example, here is a photo collage of Flat Stanley visiting Dubai:
and Sydney, Austrailia:
The students, upon receiving photos of Flat Stanley, get to bring in their photos and learn, in a personal way, about other parts of the world.
Recently, I’m starting to experience Flat Stanley deja vu with a very serious twist; this time with a more sophisticated subject: “GLI Mike”
In June, 2012, I was featured, wearing scrubs and surgical loupes, on Good Morning America, and performed Scalp Micropigmentation on “GLI Mike”.
Having never been on National Television before, this was a truly nerve-wracking experience, particularly since a man’s head was on the line’ and a whole lot of people were watching.
In front of 3.9 Million Viewers, Mike was transformed in a single day through the miracle of GLI Scalp Micropigmentation into a man who, though already handsome, looked fully 15-years younger.
Doesn’t he look amazing? Yes I did, girl.
And, I completed Mike’s procedure while under the pressure of having a videographer not only filming constantly in my procedure room but, at times, he was even leaning on me!
I am very proud of my work on Mike. And, here is what Mike looks like now, in the real world:
Well, despite the extremely public nature of Mike’s procedure, I now see GLI Mike popping up, much like Flat Stanley, all over the world.
