What Oakland needs . . . statues of Tom Hanks in front of its high schools?

Wednesday, June 20, 2012

That’s the “proposal” from a trio billing themselves as the Wonderment Consortium in this spoof video posted at Kickstarter, poking a little fun at the online funding source. They would start at Oakland Tech (Hanks from “Castaway,” below) and with each additional $10,000 raised, move to another school (his alma mater, Skyline High, would get Hanks from “Saving Private Ryan").
