Big Joe and Phantom 309

English Club – Session II, November 8 at Vitoria-Gasteiz.

I want to share this amazing tale with all you storytime lovers, especially those under-age… simply because I love to see their eyes catching fire with the unexpected.

Welcome you all!

I hope you brought some tissues with you…

 

“Big Joe And Phantom 309”

Written by Tommy Faile 1967,

Performed by Tom Waits

Well now, it’s story time again. I’m gonna tell you a story ’bout a truck driver. This story was written by a guy named Red Sovine, and it’s called the Ballad of Big Joe and Phantom 309.”

“El Caminante” as a fictional character

He’s been a traditional blusa and a basketball player, he’s been a medieval commoner, he’s been a beauty queen… and most of the time he is naked.

I’m sure that by now all inhabitants of Vitoria-Gasteiz have watched the outstanding and really simple production carried out by Eroski as a marketing strategy: in short, bringing to life the most characteristic sculpture of this city and take it shopping around the Old Quarter.

What I find most interesting is the actual creation of a fictional character out of the bronze original. Think of it, He is not famous for what he has achieved or his story, he is first famous and afterwards he gets a story.
