Some disappointing news to report…it seems that the Sonic spots Claudia and I shot last month are not going to air. Not entirely sure why, but that’s how the oreo blast crumbles, I suppose. So what am I doing with my time these days? Oh, you know, typical stuff. Like going to a taping of America’s Funniest Videos. Jealous?
That’s right. On September 26th, my boyfriend Joe and my friends Matt & Rebecca joined me to see, in person, one of my favorite guilty-pleasure shows of all time. Now, when I mention America’s Funniest Videos, many people respond with “Is Bob Saget still hosting that” or “Is that still on the air?”. No. And yes. America’s Funniest Videos (or AFV to those of us in the know) is alive and well and hosted by the man I call America’s Host, Tom Bergeron (aka “The Berge”).
The first thing to know about going to see an AFV taping is that you may very well end up on camera, so you have to dress nicely. I’m proud to say that my party was among the best dressed there, with the ladies in dresses and the gentlemen in ties. Due to our fashion sense, we were asked to sit in the “cafe tables” area of the audience, but to do so we would have to be split up. Not wanting to divide our happy party of four, we declined and were seated in the “overflow” section, meaning we wouldn’t be on camera. But just as we were settling in to our off-camera seats, Joe and I were summoned back to the cafe section. Matt and Rebecca sent us off with their blessing. So watch the November 1st episode of AFV and you will very likely see my enthusiastically-laughing and applauding self.
