Ever since I submitted the Doritos - Crash the Super Bowl 2013 video I have been asked a segment of questions. Although I am putting together a bloopers reel I thought it would be interesting to answer those questions and put them to a post for those who are curious.
Q. Is your daughter really hanging upside down?
A. Yep. Anjali takes gymnastics class and loves to flip around so it wasn't too difficult for me to ask her to do a flip on camera. I called action and said do a flip and the rest is history.
Q. How did you get your son to say his lines with such energy?
A. We actually played a game of charades. I started playing with him about a month before the shoot. I taught him the rules and then he caught on real quick. I would do a round then he would get up and do one. My daughter would get up and do a round as well. It was absolutely precious.
Q. Is your wife really holding you upside down?
A. You bet. I did a handstand, my brother stood behind my wife to help lift me off the ground. Vivian said I got him and my brother ran off camera. She must have held me a good 6 or 7 seconds. My wife is strong and beautiful and that is why I do what she says. :)
Q. What are you going to do with the million if you win?
A. Well I live in NYC and if there is a tax hike come 2013 then I will cheer for a few hours and go back to work Monday morning. :)
Q. Do your kids like Doritos?
A. Funny thing is last year I entered the Doritos - Crash the Super Bowl 2012 contest and taught my kids to say Doritos so every time they see the Doritos truck they get excited. I won't be shocked if they LOVE them. Now if I can just get them to be excited about broccoli.
Q. What was your biggest challenge during the shoot?
A. I would say the biggest challenge was all the preparation before hand. The actual shoot day was fairly simple. However, each element (flipping, charades, comfort with clothing, lights and camera, make up, time of day) had to be ironed out way before we filmed. So I would say I was stressed for the last month because I kept going over any loop holes that might come up.
Well that is all. If you have any question for me I would love to answer it. Thank you for watching and reading and if you would like to share the video with your friends and family I won't be upset. :)
Until the bloopers,
There are 3 things I can't change... my 2 kids, my 1 wife and my 0 rights.
