Jif commercial

Anyone who knew me as a teen remembers my cat Gooshy. My mom had named her Marilyn, but that name just didn't "pop," as they say in the biz. I was obsessed with Gooshy. I carried her everywhere, communicated to her in babytalk, and pretty much annoyed the hell out of anyone who came within earshot.

With my actors fleeing me like I had the plague, it was inevitable that I would recruit Gooshy to star in a video. Despite her acting skills being superior to those of my usual actors, she was even more difficult to work with. Thankfully I had the good sense to know a good blooper reel when I saw it and thus this gem was born.

Scary side note: At the end of the video, for less than one second, there's a mysterious shot of my Grandpa (deceased). As far as I know, this split second is the only existing video footage of him. There's something eerie about it, as if his ghost is breaking through the footage to say hello. Hi, Grandpa.

I like the Jif in the bowl shot. And apparently Grandpa was showing that maybe dogs like Jif too. Pretty cool cameo.
