A still from "Do You Want to Date My Avatar?" from The Guild Panel at Comic-Con, July 24, 2009. Check out The Guild at www.watchtheguild.com

I was live tweeting the panel so it’s a wonder I got anything good photographed, especially during the music video. My vantage point here has me looking over the heads of Dr. Horrible creators Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen. Jed Whedon wrote the music and directed this music video. Maurissa Tancharoen (the Asian Whedon) is a backup dancer to Tink (Amy Okuda) here.

The video is available now as a free download on Xbox Live and for Microsoft’s Zune. On Monday, August 17th the video will be released wide on the web, and the song will be available for download via iTunes and Amazon.
