On Monday, I was downtown here in Toronto and I was approached by a recruiter to appear in a "real person" commercial for a Buckley's cough medication. Normally I would have said no, but threw caution to the wind thinking it couldn't be that hard to do, all I had to do was read a consumer's letter to the company and hold the product in my hands. I am not and have never had any desire to be an actor. As I was being miked, the director quickly ran through of what to do, where to stand and most of all, be enthusiastic. As soon as he said "action", the worst acting on the face of the earth took place! Let me tell ya... it was BAD. How bad was it do you ask? 1. It was so bad that I could hear myself screaming in my head "Dear God! Shut the hell up now and just run!!!" 2. It was so bad that even though my segment was only 5 seconds it seemed like an eternity. 3. It was so bad that I was hoping the pigeons flying around would just plop on me just to take the camera off of me. 4. It was so bad that the words were flying out of my mouth before my mind could process the letter and I must have sound like I had marbles in my mouth. 5.Not only was it bad, but my infliction was so wooden that not even the Blue Fairy could turn me into a "Real Boy". 6. It was so bad that both Madonna and Freddie Prinze Jr. could get Oscars best Acting. After it was all said and done, the only that I remember were the faces of the director and the camera man. Priceless I just muttered " I am not an actor, was given a free t-shirt and quickly left the mark for the next victim. My only saving grace is that hopefully it was so bad that they won't use the footage at all.
