temptation/sensation/elation/fascination

So, about a month and a half or so ago, I stumbled across the opportunity to be an extra in this Nikon Coolpix commercial filmed here in Austin. The commercial was made by produced by Rebel Rebel, an Austin production company, for Nikon. It was a pretty fun experience; I've never really done anything like that before. Lo and behold, I was a featured extra and you can catch glimpses of me in it -- three times, yes I counted.



The commercial is for a new camera, the Coolpix s1000pj, the world's first compact camera with a built-in projector. To learn more information about the product, go here, here or here. I think it's actually a really good idea. First of all, for the novelty of having a tiny photo projector, and second of all for its convenience. I want one. When I got to hold one, the director told me it was one of the only three (the other three were just used in other parts of the commercial) in America at the time. Exciting.

P.S. Does anybody know what song this is? Shazam it for me, iPhoners.

Oh, wow I was wondering why I felt so crazy for not knowing was song it was. I like it / thought it was a real song. I wonder what yours was like.
