Everybody else...

Hello! It's Jody Hatton here (the creator and "father" of XDude).

If you were there back in the day:

The THX Digital Dude's Knowledge Emporium...
The Lucasfilm Letter...
Any Given Sunday...
The Dough...
...and all those "Coming Soon" teasers,

I'd like to express my heartfelt thanks for being a fan. You rock!

I've really enjoyed adventuring through cyberspace with you. :)

And, after 18 years, I've decided to retire the XDude brand.

The world has changed a lot in the last few years, and I feel the "XDude" brand no longer communicates the direction that I've taken with my business in the last year.

I still passionately love making videos, and intend to make a lot more of them!

If you're interested to know how marketing SHOULD be done in 2017, I invite you to join my new list and watch my latest video:

(I know, it's a mouthful. Let me know if you think of a better title.) ;)

If you don't find the world of business-building to be wildly thrilling ... I'm sorry to say you probably won't be interested in my new endeavor. :)

In either case, thanks again for the good times!

I haven't 100% decided what my new company name will be just yet, so in the meantime you can find me online at



P.S. Speaking of Back in the Day, did you know that I made this video for Megadeth in 2005?

I might not have told you -- they didn't release the video for 10 years. hah! ;)
