I pity the fool who gets caught in the background of my TMZ video clips at the airport!

In the screengrab below, look past Mr. T's shoulder at the fuzzy little couple I've circled for your viewing convenience. You're looking at me and Dan.


That's right. Mr. T was on our connecting flight from Chicago to LA a couple of weeks ago, and even though he was far ahead of us in first class during the plane ride, he came to baggage claim just like everyone else to wait for his luggage. We had no idea why he was being interviewed by someone with a camera until we happened to be flipping through the channels at the hotel and see him (and OURSELVES) on TMZ.

The TMZ guy was interviewing him about the commercial I blogged about back in July, and even though he fails to really say anything interesting about it in the clip, you still may want to watch my television appearance. The video can be found here. I'm riveting as The Girl in the Red T-Shirt.

Ok, that was an awesome video. Mr. T talking about speedwalking like he knows what it's about? AMAZING.

Also, you were in it. You are famous.

However, I've got to say that the one thing in that video that made me exclaim aloud was the chest of the blonde getting her picture taken with T at the end. Is that what everyone looks like in LA?

Large-breasted and fake-blonde with giant sunglasses definitely seemed to be a trendy look out there.

But then again, it was the airport, so it was hard to tell the true Californians from the wannabes.

I think Dan and I sort of stuck out like sore thumbs in our respective Nintendo and Dr. Pepper t-shirts and our lack of flashy jewelry.

The video won't work on my Mac for whatever reason, but OMG, you look soooooooooooo good in that picture.

It probably won't make any difference, but you could try to watch the video at this link instead: http://www.tmz.com/2008/08/25/mr-t-snickers-at-the-whole-homophobic-thing/

It totally worked! And it's awesome, because I could've picked you out soooo easily even without knowing where you were standing.

Tracey said...

Neat! But that's only because you know me so well that my image is burned into your brain at all times.

So do you think Dan and I look sufficiently oblivious to the whole situation, or it is obvious that we are soooo curious about what Mr. T is talking about?

Tooooooootally obvious. You're like pay attention to Mr. T, talk about him, pay attention to Mr. T, talk about him. I could just imagine the comments you were making to Dan every time you leaned over.
