Thumbs up Just booked for TV Commercial!

I auditioned for TWO separate national TV commercials last week, and there were maybe 15 other unicyclists at each place. I did my thing at each one and felt they both went well, and today my agent called to tell me that I was "on avail" for one of them, and that the other one was still mulling things over.

So she said the first one needed to know if I was free on several upcoming dates and I said yes, and so she said she would let them know, and then call be back if they decided to hire me. (They had narrowed the field to me and one other person) She said I might not know until Thursday.

Less than 5 minutes after we ended that call, she called back to tell me they booked me! So I go in this Thursday for wardrobe fittings, then rehearsals and shooting! I'll give more details as to what the commercial is later. I'll only say that the commercial is for a very well known product!

Is it some kind of anti-aging product?

If they watch some of you vids maybe they'll let you shoot the whole thing yourself. Congratulations and good luck, can't wait to check it out.

Thanks for the kind words and support guys! I chipped a front tooth last week, and so now I have to get that fixed--pronto--in case I have to smile or show my choppers, lol!
(I wonder if obamacare will extend to dental insurance!)

Cool, maybe you'll be in it for more than 2 seconds
Does your agent tell you about all the auditions?

Not all, but she does call me whenever she gets anything that calls for a unicyclist.

Sounds cool. I'd like to try riding in a commercial too (I wanna be a Unigeezer when I grow up ).

Do upload the commercial, or send a link to it.

Congrats on the commercial Terry. That sounds like fun. You may want "make-up" to draw some geezer wrinkles on you since you look and ride like you're only about 30.

Awesome and congrats!
And be sure to charge them extra if they use your Uni-Cable-Cam (which they really should)!

Terry,

Congratulations!

Will you appear as Unigeezer(TM) or as some nameless unicycle rider?

Scott
