15 Seconds of Fame – TV Interview
My husband bought a new car yesterday evening via the “cash for clunkers” program. While he was there, the local news station showed up and interviewed him and another guy. It was fun to see his face on the news last night, where they broadcast the actual interview with him. He did a great job in front of the camera.
This morning, the news station did a revised broadcast and it just shows him at the dealership ... no speaking part. I've attached the link to the video broadcast below. My husband is the one in the black shirt. Our “clunker” was the green van, and his new car is the red Scion. At one point, it shows my husband talking on his cell phone ... he’s talking to me, giving me directions on how to get to the dealership to sign the papers. I, too, was on the news .... but only from afar and am not in this particular clip. I literally stayed away from the camera man. I hadn’t planned on going to the dealership with my hubby as I was knee deep in cooking and chores. He called and asked me to meet him there to sign over the title and get my name on his new car. So I rushed down there with my hair askew, minimal make up, and overall looking like I belong standing over a cauldron. Doesn’t it always happen that the news crew wants to film you when you don’t look your best!!
Here’s the clip: KGW News Look for Mr. Its All Gouda in the black shirt. That’s my guy.
