I Shot A Commercial!
October 28th, 2014. I received a text message from the production company that the new commercial ad for the new video game, “Shape Up”, had been released publicly.
I remember being in the gym when I received a call from “Woven Digital” about ideas for me to be involved in a commercial for a new interactive workout video game called “Shape Up”. At first, I thought the guy was just joking with me, but as he elaborated I caught on to the fact that he wasn’t. He told me I’d be shooting with two of the biggest showboating personalities in sports history, the legendary Ric Flair, and five-time NBA Champion, Dennis Rodman. As a huge fan of the “WWF” and the Chicago Bulls, this was an opportunity of a lifetime!
Once we arrived in L.A. and made it to the studio, they were still constructing the set. I was in complete awe as I had never been on an Hollywood set before, but I was extremely excited at the same time. They took me into make-up, where I met celebrity make-up artist, Becca Cullati, and she was such a pleasure to work with. As I exited out, there sat both Ric Flair and Dennis Rodman! I could not believe my eyes, but I had to keep it cool and professional. We were formally introduced to one another as we all over went over the script for the shoot. Surprisingly, both Ric and Dennis were very down to earth and quite hilarious. I knew from that point that this was going to be a day I’d never forget.
