In other news… I just got back from a beer commercial audition. I know. I was planning a really sweet, snarky rant about it. But just when I was going to pack in my acting career after the whole “thin” debacle, I was lured back into the rat race by a smart beer commercial.
You see, the script was actually funny. And I actually had fun auditioning. I know, it’s a crazy notion. Bonus: I got to dress “casual” in jeans and a tank top, instead of “slutty/sexy” in a “teeny tiny bikini”. Don’t worry I still had to be the “hot girl”, but this “hot girl” got to be fun and sassy. Nice.
So I want to take a moment and personally thank the stupendous Ad firm of Leo Burnett for allowing women to be hot, smart, sassy, and smart in a beer commercial. Check out their website. It’s Über cool.
Anyway, I have to run and fish my headshots out of the dumpster behind my apartment. Oh no! It’s starting to rain… and I hear the garbage truck… Crap.
