Do upload the commercial, or send a link to it.
Haha, will do!

Lol! The age range they had was pretty generous from 20-60.

That would be nice!

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

Scott
Probably nameless, but I was told that it's a "principal" part, which means residuals since it's SAG!

Thanks. From what I know so far, they're going to have me weaving in & out of stuff, including people and maybe even traffic, so it's right up my alley, haha! They also may have me ride a bike as well. (I just hope I can remember how to ride those things!)

I called my LBS and they said I could borrow any of their bikes for the commercial! And they are one of the largest bike shops with several hundred bikes, from custom bmx, to road and mtb and everything in between! Should be fun if nothing else!

Congratulations! I'm looking forward to seeing the results.
Do be careful with the bike though, the last time I tried to ride one of those I had a terrible upd. Just remember to keep your hands on the handle bars no matter what.

Don't worry, a bike feels strange at first after riding a uni; but you get use to it.

Well I don't think they'll expect me to do stuff like this!

Nice, Terry. I can't wait to hear all about it. Once it airs everyone at school will ask me if I know you. I got that alot when the Dan Heaton Columbia commercial came out.

Thanks man. (And I would be thrilled to have just 10% of the total views that single video has! Un-freaking-believable!)

Yeah Dan's commercial was awesome! I'm mostly excited right now from anticipation and not knowing exactly what it is they'll have me doing!

That bike video is up with this one for insaneness:


People with that level of mastery just tweak my little melon.

Sorry off topic. Looking forward to more updates on your commercial geezer. But thanks for bringing that video to my attention.

The name of that surf spot is Teahupoo (Chopoo) in case anyone wants to google for images/videos.

That video clip is from a movie called "Riding Giants"

I have a funny story to tell about TV commercial.
So for unknown reasons I was watching "the simpsons" and there appeared several times a commercial for Mc Donald's.
I felt uneasy .... something was wrong but I could not pinpoint the problem .... in fact the principal role in this commercial was played by Jules (a former member of our Muni team) but I did not recognize him! he is a grown up of about 1.90 m and he was playing the role of a teen.... it's crazy how a role and makeup can transform a person!
