Your chance to shine in a gruen type ad

johnboy 3 November 2008 9

The following message in from Asher Floyd:

    Hi Everyone,

    The ACT has been voted Australia’s least favorite tourist destination! Bearcage (where I work) has been given the job of creating a mock tourism ad for Canberra (think ‘The Gruen Transfer’ except not). The ad will feature on Stateline.

    We need actors urgently! The shoot takes place on Wednesday (during daylight hours).


    The actors will simply need to look bemused, like fish out of water (no speaking required). We’re looking for:

    – a Suburban Style Family:
    – Mum
    – Dad
    – Girl under 10
    – Boy about 10

    – two Surfies
    – males, 20 to 35

    – two Bushwalkers
    – a couple, male and female 40 – 65

    – three Schoolies
    – 15 – 22
    – two males, one female

    Unfortunately, Bearcage is being paid nil for this project – so we have little to offer, other than a good time and a chance to be on TV!

    But, hell, you’re only required for 2 hours – and this will be a fun job to hang on the mantle piece. We can supply copies to everyone involved.

    Please call me on 0423 380 237. Tomorrow is a public holiday, so I need responses urgently! (by close of business today please).

    Pass this into friends, parents, siblings, children 🙂

    Many thanks,

I would have – it sounds like great fun – but I will be down in the most excellent city of Adelaide sampling fine wines on that day. It’s a tough life, but someone has to do it.

Ethically berift, obviously…

Some people have no moral fibre!

They should be investigated as well.

Especially junior sports administrators and coaches. How dare they be exploited.

You know there is such a thing as volunteer work, Passy …. I know this may come as a shock, so I hope you are sitting down!

So basically they are asking for free labour? Maybe the relevant union (the MEAA?) should investigate.

I think your missing the Public Servant – 30-40 one male two female must look disinterested.
