The Reel Truth About Commercials

Having spent nearly twenty years toiling in the crass world of television commercials, I found the following Utube clips dead-on in their depiction of the true social dynamics at work on set. These are exaggerated for comedic effect, but the separation from reality is one of degree, not kind. Many of you have probably seen them, but anyone who hasn’t is in for a treat.

Start here, then go for part two here. The whole thing won’t eat up more than six or seven minutes – and they might be the best minutes of your day.

Thanks to Pam, another battle-scarred veteran of the commercial world, for sending them my way...
