Howdy folks...

On Sunday me and a teammate had a show at german QVC to promote the Char Griller Family Scout.
We had a casting and a few coachings by QVC in the past couple of month and we were surprised by the professional work and support.

Well, on sunday they messed it up big time.

No supervision or contact partner around, show being pushed up 3 hours prior to the planned airing ( 5 pm instead of 8 pm) and a the female moderator was a real PITA on Glucose overdose that didnt stick to the planned worksheet and arrangements at all.

The lid of the grill was a cover to protect it from the weather, according to her. She even got the names wrong and called me "Michael".
Boy were we confused and pissed. :icon_smil

The moderator that was planned for that show and who really cared about grilling bought one of our exhibition char grillers afterwards. We would have been way better off with him.

Anyway, heres a couple of pics and a video of that show :

And as if that hadnt been enough, while grilling the food for the crew after the show, all of a sudden "DJ Bobo" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DJ_BoBo) showed up hungry at the smell of the Barbecue.

Don Marco, I have worked in and around television and entertainment for 20 years-that is very much par for the course. You're lucky you got out of there alive.

Looked good to me... Having never learned German, I was surprised how much I could make out of the conversation!
