It’s also probably not surprising that I referred to beans in this post, what with all my fiber issues and such…
I went to BlogHer 2013 in Chicago a few weeks ago and had a blast. For those of you who don’t know blog-speak, BlogHer is a national convention with over 5,000 bloggers and tons of free shit.
I’m serious. There is literally lots and lots of free shit, including vibrators and lube.
I’m not kidding.
ULTA Beauty was a sponsor of BlogHer, and somehow, the lovely women at the Richards Group Advertising Agency found me and thought I was funny.
I know. Ree—-dic.
They had me shoot a little video, which I thought was just for fun, so I agreed. (I’m sure that’s what Farrah Abraham said about the sex video too…just for fun.) I figured they wanted the video for the sole purpose of laughing at me and making fun of my inability to use eyeliner. They wouldn’t be wrong if that was their reason.
Apparently they liked my video and showed it to Wendi McLendon-Covey who thought I was funny. Allow me to say that again, people, WENDI-MCLENDON-COVEY THOUGHT I WAS FUNNY!
Obviously she pitied me and my inability to use eyeliner.
You know who she is. She was the busty cop on Reno 911 and the sex-crazed mother in Bridesmaids who complained about her semen-infested home.
loved me and wanted to become my best friend thought I was funny, ULTA asked me to interview Wendi for their ULTA Beauty LOL marketing campaign, which is all about embarrassing beauty moments. Naturally, I’m the perfect person to talk about embarrassing moments, so it was a perfect fit. I know nothing about beauty, but I guess they figured I could wing it.
I met Wendi and did an interview with her, which was fun and exciting. There were sound guys and cameras and a boom mic and everything, so you know it was legit. THERE WAS A BOOM MIC, PEOPLE! That’s the big time.
My interview was edited down to a 30 second clip that will be used for ULTA’s social media for their Beauty LOL campaign. Cool, huh? It’s a good thing they edited it because in our conversation we discussed key parties and having a stroke. I’m not kidding.
It’s hard to believe she’s even funnier and more beautiful in real life than she is on camera, but she is. She’s in a new show this fall called The Goldbergs. It’s about a family in the 80s, so you know it will be hilarious.
For now, I hope my video with Wendi and ULTA will hold you over. Please feel free to share this and splatter me all over the internet. This is the one video I’m actually happy to share, and one that won’t result in indecency charges being filed against me.
DISCLAIMER: I know I look horrible in this video. They say the camera adds 10 pounds but I’m pretty sure the camera they used added at least 100 pounds.
