Would you buy from me?

  1. Sep 12, 2005 #1
    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)

    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...

    Paul Lavers is over rated.

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

    It's ok I suppose.... I would never buy a paper ring though.

    I don't have a chance to watch it now. I'll see it when I get home :smile:

    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.

    Ok...let me dl it...

    it's opening...

    and taking forever...

    okay... watched it. and I must say, it's better than your other performances. The face you made at the end was no good tho. funny :smile:

    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?

    ok, would a wooden ring interest you?

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

    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.
