As many of you know I’ve got a pretty large funny bone. I love to laugh and I love making others laugh. That is precisely why I enjoy making silly videos and spoofs.
The latest in my repertoire is a collaboration with Baby Gorilla Productions. Marco Infante and Keston John are the dashing duo behind Baby G. They are good friends of mine who happened to be talented and driven. Marco came to me with the idea of shooting a cosmetics commercial spoof. I read the script and thought is was hilarious. I actually had some up close experience on set of a real beauty commercial.
A few years ago I was hired as Drew Barrymore’s stand in for her Cover Girl commercials. It was a blast to see how a big campaign like that gets put together. Drew was an absolute doll and a pleasure to work with. This gave me some reference point when I was ready to shoot the spoof.
We went for over the top make up and skanky outfits to really play up the characters Marco created. With comedy, especially in this particular case, the bigger the better. I think the end product is a hilarious and well made ready for air commercial!

I dream of one day uttering that familiar phrase, Easy Breezy Beautiful…Cover Girl. Until that time comes, “Aren’t you worth it? I know I am!” has a pretty nice ring to it.
