hello! I've put together this video audition in the hope of being hired by QVC. I've tried to show that I can make even a paper ring desirable to viewers! What do you think, would you buy from me? (please note i styled myself after Paul Lavers, the king of shopping tv)

Ummmm....

There's no nice way to put it so I guess I'll just say it...

I didn't like it and I wouldn't buy from you....sorry mate...maybe other people will like your preformance more. Best of luck to you...

They might think you're making a mockery out of it.

I think it's hard to determine whether or not I would buy from you because the product (paper ring) doesn't exactly interest me. And if the product doesn't interest me, I won't buy it at all, regardless of who the salesperson is! That's just my opinion.

My personal opinion is that you need to practice, and watch some more qvc. The people on these shows are smooth and great liars, skills I would, personally, love to acquire.

WELL, I LIKED IT, omega2. I thought you did a very good job. It does need some practice, and I suggest being louder and more exaggerated in your hand gestures (which you didn't exhibit as much, also use both hands). :smile:

I wouldn't buy from you though.

for fear it might get wet?

I think it's hard to determine whether or not I would buy from you because the product (paper ring) doesn't exactly interest me.

ok, would a wooden ring interest you?

watched it. and I must say, it's better than your other performances.

really? i thought Dr Greenstone was unbeatable! thanks for the feedback!! :biggrin:

people on these shows are smooth and great liars,

then you should commend me for my transparency!

Mk, thanks for your comment, it brought great delight to me. :approve:

Dr. Greenstone was....okay. I really liked this one. If I ususally bought from QVC, I would've bought from you (for your acting, not the product) maybe if it was a btter product

good luck

Doctor greenstone is the best characterised of the lot i thought! :devil: the demented jewish plastic surgeon! i pretend to be him in most of the videos!

this qvc thing was based on paul lavers, see here - http://www.paullavers.com/

I liked the QVC spoof, not quite as much as Dr. Greenstone, though. I had trouble with the volume on both. It's sometimes hard to make out the words.

You might want to talk slightly louder, but that's my only complaint. That was much better :approve:

Both of these videos show up awkwardly for me. They show up in these very strange colors. Let me see if I can get a screenshot.
