I am a little bummed. I didn’t say anything because I wanted to surprise you guys, but it looks like it’s not going to happen, so I’ll just tell you. Have you heard of Zigtech? Well, I auditioned for a Reebok, Zigtech commercial last week and it’s one of the few auditions I’ve done for a big company where I walked out, knowing that I did a good job.
Apparently Reebok thought so, too. I after sitting on pins and needles for about three days, I was informed that the audition had been narrowed down to just TWO people. Me and one other guy. It was a basketball-related audition, and though I’m not the best player, the stars just lined up I guess.
Anyway, the day before the shooting I get a call saying that they ended up choosing the other guy. I was calm on the phone, I just said a simple “Oh, okay.” But my brain went all Yosemite Sam: “Racking frackin’ no good, rootin’ tootin’ wrong model choosin’ Reebok!!!” In my head there may have a few more obscenities sprinkled in, but I’m sure you get the idea. There was really nothing I could do after that but accept it. But I so wanted to be able to tell you guys to check out another commercial I was in. Burn…
I’m not going to complain about, but I WAS SO CLOSE. Just knowing that you were literally one person away from doing something cool like that, stings a little bit. Ahhh, it’s all good, though. I know I’ll have a chance to audition for another cool job sometime, and when I do, I’m pulling out all the stops!
