A few weeks back I shot a commercial for Home Goods with director Dave Meyers. I had recognized him from the many Making the Video episodes I watched on MTV. No matter how much I begged he would not let me use a wind machine for my hair.
Here he is with his buddy Pink

Driving a giant hot dog
The shoot was fun. I worked from 7:00AM to 3:00PM. They fed us a lovely lunch, where I got to sit and joke with hilarious crew members.
I am merely admiring my home in the ad, but it took dozens of takes to see that I was convincingly pleased and that it was really my home. Remember kids, step on your mark, put your face in the right light, look with your eyes--not with your head, show glee, THEN say the line!
