VOTING STARTS (again) TODAY! See behind the scenes . . .

Okay, are you ready for the first ever spoken words straight from the Crash Test Dummies mouth?

I'm really coming out of the closet with this one.

And it ain't pretty, peeps.

Here is some never-before-seen, behind-the-scenes--uncensored--footage of me talking about the making of my SAM-e video for the Good Mood Blogger gig.

After trying to condense my thoughts into a 250 word essay and a 90 second video, I just. had. to. ramble.

The scene I am talking about in this behind the scenes video is on the cutting room floor. It never made it to press (darnit!) But maybe I will make an out-take video. If you beg me.

I originally wanted my opening line to parody this B.o.B opening line.

And now for my video log debut . . . (You may want to grab some popcorn and a Mountain Dew for this one. It's a real YAWNER!)

P.S. Raise your hand if you would have gotten the B.o.B reference without my explanation.

Get it? Yawner?

(Ah, sometimes I crack myself up.)

I am LoW said...

After all that yawning, I think I need to go back to bed....

I am LoW said...

I just went to samE and saw your video!! Cute, cute, cute!!! I LUB it!!!!

Momza said...

What a darling video!
I hope you win so much, that I posted this:

Crossing my fingers and toes for you!

Just SO said...

That was fabulous! I love all the background sounds.

wesley's mom (sue) said...

Your video is great (the real one, not the yawny one {though the yawny one is funny}). It made me cry.

I just watched yours then voted. I didn't even look at any of the other candidates. Was that wrong?

Barbaloot said...

I feel really privileged that I actually know someone in the contest. Makes it much more exciting.

And also, I've always been a little bit in love with Rivers Cuomo, but I'm even more so since I saw this video. He's such a nerd...and for some reason I find that charming.

Bee said...

I. Love. This. It truly made my life better! I'm voting I'm voting I'm voting!! And living vicariously through you because I love your dog and miss mine. That is all.

lori said...

YAWWWN....don't you know that yawning is contagious? I voted, and your video is wonderful! Good job!

OldBoatGuy said...

When I voted, you already had 59. I'll vote every day.

Leslie said...

Deb, this was so funny....girl, you're talented and you so deserve this job...and by a way the video for the job, came out great...very touching!!! But I have to admit that this is my favorite!!!

Sue said...

I followed Momza's link over to vote for you. Good luck!


T said...

The Crash Test Dummy said...

HI GUYS! Thanks for all of your kind words of support. It's kinda taking the edge off for me.


OMGOSH, Lori, that is so true about contagious yawning. And I am the most suceptible to that. I yawn at the thought of yawning. Fer reals. It's a family curse. My daughter started yawning just watching that video.

Bee, MAHALO. SO. MUCH. You're a cutie patootie.

Leslie!!! Aaahhhh, my old, dear friend. LY! Oh, I'll just come out and say it LUB YOU!

Iwa, I made that video for you girl. With you in mind. You are such my muse.

Ha ha Nevada about beating April.

Momza, you are da bestest. THANK YOU SO MUCH for promoting me.

LoW, I know you are, but what am I?

Sue and Sue, MAHALO!

Barb, what the what the HUH? I'm going to take that as a compliment. hee hee.

OLD BOAT GUY, you always make smile from in the inside for some reason. LY!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Barb, ha ha I get it now. hee hee hee hee

I thought Rivers Cuomo was that Weezer dude. I thought B.o.B. was B.o.B.

hee hee

Stephen said...

Your Sam E video was awesome and your yawner video was hilarious.

val of the south said...

Melanie Jacobson said...

I don't know why this is making me laugh so hard.

Melanie Jacobson said...

Dammit, Debbie. I yjust watched your official video and now for some reason I'm CRYING. WTH?! (That should read heck. I'm down to one swear a week.) (I also apologize to all your innocent readers' eyeballs.)

Also, Eden saw Lulu in your other video and started doing happy shrieks.

Martha said...

You were scaring me with the first video. But, your real one is great. It makes me think you miss it over here just a little.

You need to somehow watch the big cultural celebration tomorrow. I'll try to record it somehow.

Sandi said...

Well I haven't gone and watched the real thing yet- but I love this one! you sounded just like I imagined (you talk like a Utard) hahahaha.

Sandi said...

Well..I did the deed. You are freaking adorable! I love that you used your daughter's painting in it. I love the quotes, they are perfect! I also love that the clock that tells what time comments are left is STILL on Hawaii time. Knuckles girlfriend!!

Sandi said...

okay since it's Friday and I don't have a date, I went and watched some of those videos. gotta say there are some really good ones- some peeps need to see a speech therapist, some need a visit to the orthodontist- haha I'm so judgemental. Just saying that there are some good ones so EVERYBODY make sure to vote for our fav. dummy OK!

Sandi said...

p.s. If I wanted to be really judgmental I could say something mean about the lady in the bathtub. but I wont.
