Jacko, the Paparazzi

In Hong Kong, it's so common that you can bump into celebrity at anytime anywhere on the street. Or on the daily life, you may encounter some shootings are taking place at public area. It's so normal till no one, well, I mean Hong Kong residents care to stop by and kepoh what is happening. Some might even condemn if the shooting obstructs and causes traffic congestion.

Over here in BullehLand, it's hard to see such thing on day to day. And for minor bumper-to-bumper car accident on the road, or as minor as car towing by the road side, it's no surprise that the traffic will just get paralyzed, even on the opposite direction. Why? We Malaysian are damn kepoh busybody mah and we just like to be kepoh and watch but sorry, don't get me involved! That's Malaysia Bulleh attitude. Therefore, what say if such shooting is taking place here? Definitely it draws crowd, but not me. I usually come out with !@#$%^&*() when I stuck in traffic jam if such things (and accidents) happen and the passengers would get screwed by me if ask me to stop or slow down in most occasions. That's just impatient me. Hehe...

In one of the days after work, I felt like going out for happy hour and headed to Jaya One for drink. It's the 3rd time in a week I was there. Hmmm... start liking this place. And there was an advertisement shooting in action. This wasn't the first time I saw shooting like this, but since we were still undecided which cafe to go and we did not obstruct traffic and others' businesses, so I turned myself into a "paparazzi" to spy shot the advertisement. First hand scenes for your first eye viewing at Jacko.MY before it shows on TV screens!! ;)


Very obvious, the whole scene was so dull in color but you could see the big red vending machine there. It's the Coca Cola ads, I believe for local screens. You can see the leading actor was getting better after each NG. Not only 3 NG, the director asked to replay for few more times. I gave up after 3 NG. Hehe...

I almost go on air like this with my lovely FD not long ago. Aiks, it did not happen at the end due to unexpected circumstance. I would imagine I might just throw the bottle to the director after 3rd NG, 'cause I lost my patience. Haha... Nothing would happen if I were Brad Pitt or Takeshi Kaneshiro 金城武, but I think I would get a "Beckham kick" from the director on my butt since I am not. Hehe... As far as I know it's few thousands bucks for like a 48 hours contract per ads. Good money right? So who knows I might just have patience with the $$. Hehe...

Let me nag my friend again, see if there's any "opportunity". :P And let's see if my Jack Bond's recording is similar to the final TV commercial...
