Default My football commercial in China

Last year I was in a TV commercial in China which featured football players. The commercial was for a baby food product. The premise was we were going to try to tackle this baby but he juked us. Being the only American there I was an actor and a advisor....made good money on this baby. This is only one of 8 tv ads Ive been in here in China.

In this one it was me the Lone American, 2 Africans, one New Zealander, and one guy from Spain. The director was Austrailian, cool guy, but knew squat about US football (neither did the other guys, should have seen them try to throw the football...hilarious, but I played QB in highschool and after 2 days had a couple of the guys throwing some nice spirals). Yes that is me giving instructions on how to set up the feild, and yes its me at the top of the platform. I did all the dangerous stunts...but sprained my knee on that one. That was a good 20 foot jump onto nothing much more than a matress...

Just bored and thought I'd share.

Pretty neat Steel. I would imagine there is alot of work and down time that goes into even a short commercial. Ugly uniforms btw. *chuckle*

Havent seen that one on TV here, maybe in the northern market, but I have caught several of my other tv ads here in China. I was even in a commercial with Gong Li ( you may know her as the main actress in Memoirs of a Geshia) whewww baby she's fine.

Yeah 90% of the time you're just sitting around (as an actor) but pretty cool bcause there's allways one guy that just tends to the actors, just tell him what you want and he goes and gets it. If fact for this commercial they didnt supply cups (not the ones you drink from) I knew I had a couple scenes comming up were I'd be jumping on the ground, so I told the guy to go find me a cup, gotta protect the jewelles man....
