Did you ever trick by a friend, and ended up being a TV features with your Monster? Happened to me once. Bit strange to see your self on TV, but I did ok I guess. Just need to trim that body fat a bit.
One evening a very familiar voice drop me a line asking me to join him for a short ride for a TV features. No more details were provided, and I though I will accompany him on some TV features about Ducati in general. Well the Ducati part was correct, but to my surprise and to be more specific the features was about me and my Monster!
The shows was for Mototrax TV show at Global TV. The show was about motorcycle in general. Mine was about – off course – Ducati Monster. The bike will be the features and also the owner. I was interviewed and also being shoot by the video camera. The crew were quite elaborate, they took I think about an hour just to shoot the bike.
They also took me when I ride my Monster. We did a round or two in my housing complex and the crew took the video of me from back, side and front also during braking, etc.
The following Monday the show were on, 11 PM on Global TV. I laugh the first time I saw my interview on TV. Also when I saw my self riding the Monster. I did record the show and showed it to my kids. They scream, “Hey that is you Daddy!!”, and jump around in excitement. Kids. Ah, anything to put smile in their face.
All and all it was a new and nice experience. Perhaps I should asked for some money next time.
