My Five Minutes of Famous

jason-160Yeah, yeah, I know it’s actually “fifteen minutes of fame“, please allow me some literary license!  Early this morning I recorded a voice over for a national television spot that is in the works for Famous Dave’s Legendary Pit Bar-B-Que.  That’s right, the BBQthDirector will be in a commercial!  I was “discovered” by JRP, a film and video production company working on a summer advertising campaign for Dave.  It was my January post “Famous Dave for President” that caught their attention.  In addition to the TV spot, I’ll be participating in a summer internet campaign to help further Dave’s cause.

Wow, what an honor!  I’m hoping this will open doors for bigger and better things (not that it gets much bigger than this).  My ultimate goal, an appearance in a “” commercial.  C’mon, can’t you just see/hear me: “F-R-E-E, that spells free … credit report dot com, baby!”  Oh, yeah, that would be bomb-diggity!

**Oh, and just for clarification, the recording session lasted about five minutes, hence, the post title!

    Cool. When it comes out you will have to find a way to post it in case we don’t get to see it!

    Our teens are always singing the songs! Crack up!

    Will we see you in a commercial, or just hear your voice? I hope you got to say something really deep and profound…

    I’ve been told that there’ll be a picture of me along with a printed quote from my post, “Famous Dave for President!” As well as the voice over of me saying these deep and profound words. It was a trip doing the recording with the sound studio over the phone. I think they had me do it about 50 times. “Okay, go really over the top … now slower … faster … really fast this time … this time let’s have more emphasis on president …”

    So, it will actually be more like five SECONDS of fame. Plus, I’m getting paid, which is a huge answer to prayer. I’m going out to James Burrow’s wedding, and this little gig is pretty much going to cover the plane ticket! Isn’t God good?

    Cool! Doesn’t God know how to provide!

    Wow…..that is intensely cool! You’ve hit the big time now!
    “Bomb-diggity”….I say that but hardly hear anyone else use it! I love it!!!

    U ARE MY HERO!!!

  11. jaynepomuceno on

    No, no, no, Robby, that word is to be reserved for SEALs such as yourself. Please, I’m not worthy.

    Jane, I actually got bomb-diggity from you! I’m not creative enough to come up with stuff like that. I rely on people like you and Becka to enhance my vocabulary.

    Janet, you know, that seems to be the natural next step. Or maybe a made-for-TV movie about my life. They could probably get The Rock or Cuba Gooding, Jr. to play me.

  12. Jane on

    Wow….so exciting that I introduced that stellar word to you! I feel so honored that my vocab is creative enough to be copied!!! 🙂
