Draft of My Sideline Reporter Audition Tape ... Give Me Your Critiques!

On the advice of YouTube phenom Elie Seckbach I've put together a video compilation of goofy athlete interview clips. Before I send this to TNT in the quest to fulfill my lifelong dream of being Michele Tafoya Cheryl Miller, I'd like your comments. I think some of the clips can be cut -- tell me which ones are not funny or don't work out of context. I'm also not crazy about the large size of the lettering and I'm not sure about the order of the clips or the quick cuts. So please let me know what you think so I can get on TNT (for real this time, not like my first cameo).

Outstanding.

Great stuff. If you're serious about working the sideline, though, I'd drop the scene where Lawyer Milloy hits on you.

This is great, I wouldn't worry about changing anything.

You're hired ... if I had anything at all to hire you for. Details.

That was the ish. I loved it.

Lawyer Milloy may have a point about the lingerie - as long as it's not Laywer the one wearing it.

And a couple of love letters & chocolates to Charles Barkley couldn't hurt - especially the chocolates. The 20-lb. Whitman's Sampler should suffice.

The spontaneity and interaction are great. My issue with it is that these clips make you look more important than the athletes at times.

Brett Edwards said...

Perfect as is!

Awful Announcing- said...

Great stuff. Keeping a straight face while someone asks you about lingerie is key in the sideline biz.

Belated "no changes needed" vote. I could see someone feeling similar to rakibuzzman, but there's no way to predict these things. You don't want to end up in the boring middle.

My advice would be to do the opposite of anything Brent Edwards says.

LOVE the ending with that Oden clip
