Most* of the time when you see a commercial for a store on TV the spot was shot overnight. The production is essentially a giant slumber party!

Yesterday my parents said they saw me on TV in a Cabela’s spot.
After watching it I’m reminded of Andy Warhol’s quote about fame…
Some people get 15 minutes of fame all at once. I take mine seconds at a time. Look closely and you’ll see me for a second!
If Warhol’s correct, I’ve got about 898 seconds left…
Last but not least, special thanks and shout out to the agents at Moore Creative Talent for sending me to this audition!
* = Last week I shot a spot for Hy-Vee at their new store in Brooklyn Park — it’s beautiful — however, while we shot overnight, the store didn’t close. When real** people walked into the store/on set they’d do a double-take and kinda freak-out in the cutest way imaginable.
** = Not actors; actors are fake people.
