Have you seen it?? Have you seen it?? Here is our TV Commercial STAR Debut!
The Cleveland Clinic Children's called us to see if we would like to be part of a television commercial…
My response (because I am super shy…) ummm where do I sign up???
They told us the time, place and where to be and the three of us (Russ had to work – boo) trucked off to Cleveland Indians Progressive Field to be a part of this awesomeness
They told me it would be a speaking part so the whole week Harper and I pretended like we were going live with cameras rolling and kept “practicing” pretend lines we would make up. One of us would count down and the other would say:
We had no idea what they were going to have us say…
We were so excited and ready to rock when we arrived – we had a hair stylist and make up artist – we both (but especially Harper) felt SOOO FANCY and Brodie – well you know this little guy by now, he was as cool as a cucumber and more interested in any baseballs that might be lying around then all the fuss.
After our beauty sessions we were ready to go – I still did not know what I was going to say – all I knew is that I had a 4 year old and 1 year old who were in tow about to go live on camera and sweet dear God please let no one have a meltdown.
The stands were filled with extras, there was a whole film production team and then came us the “stars” for our little section. I still kept thinking to myself – please remember my lines – please remember my lines…
Cameras rolling… We get situated… It is hot – like 90 degrees hot… Brodie’s on my lap – Harper next to me. Here is my thought process…
“Look, please look, look at the cameras… Please smile… Please look happy… Please no meltdowns… and Traci do not forget the lines… Oh no – I am sweating please don’t sweat Please… Please…” annnnnnnndddd Repeat.
Lights. Camera. Action.
I had two words. Anytime. Anywhere.
Guess what? I remembered them!
HA! And one got put into the commercial – WOOP WOOP! Awesome. And no meltdowns! And both little love nuggets look pretty darn good! ANNND you can barely see my sweating! WINNING!
I overheard Harper talking to a friend after we did this… I wish I had this on video…
“Sooo we went to the Indians Game today and filmed a commercial for Brodie’s Good Vibe Tribe and the Cleveland Clinic… It was like we were Movie stars, but it wasn’t for a movie it was for a commercial – so I guess you could say I am a commercial star.”
Here are my little stars!
This commercial airs during Indians Games! I’m talking baseball – I’m talking Tigue’s! I mean Tribe!!!
