So, a week and a half ago, I saw through the local Vespa shop's FB page that there was a TV casting call for scooterists.

So, sent in my pic....they said I was perfect, shave the beard I had grown for 6 months.

Shaved the beard.

Wrecked up the front fender putting it in the truck. Bad news.

Good news: spent all day riding my scooter and eating and hanging out with other scooterists. And eating (TV shows are better stocked on junk food than Costco and Sams Club combined). And got paid for it. And Overtime.

Lots of fun. And the pay got me halfway to the repair.

Here's a pic of my baby in wardrobe:

I see a lot of TV stuff being shot in Georgia these days.

Sounds like a fun day!

The beard will grow back.

Very cool. Sorry about the damage. Years ago my LX was in a photo shoot for a clothing company here called, Crazy Shirts. Never got my scooter in the magazine but got paid $300 a day for the 2 day photo shoot. No food tho and they didn't put a scratch on him. Still look to see if they have used the pic, every time i get a new magazine from them.

Oh the fun! We film a lot here in Santa Fe NM but haven't yet had a casting call for scooters. I would even take PTO if I could end up in a shoot!
