March 18, Special Interview: Not only does her video have over 25 M views, but Cara and I actually went to the same high school together, Lower Merion, just outside of Philly. She ecstatically agreed to do a little interview with me well, happily at least so here goes! Firstly, did you ever secretly want to make out with me behind the stairs on the third floor of the art building at 3PM? How long after you posted it did you start to see things go viral?
I knew it was going viral when all of Afghanistan was talking about it! I woke up the next day and saw the video had about hits, which at the time was insane for me considering I had no subscribers and only had about or so Facebook friends. The fourth day it hit a million and then got a million a day for about a week straight. It was absolutely insane. No, I had no intentions of the video going viral, or really anyone to see it other than my family and friends. It was around 2 am and I had just finished off an entire pizza by myself so I decided I should call it a night.
I did it all in one take and just improvised the whole thing as I went. I put it on Youtube and the rest is internet history! Damn, I should start making videos of all the crazy crap I think too! Do you find yourself still reading the comments on your video? There are some pretty ridiculous ones, for example: When it was going viral I did and it was the best entertainment. It was the most amazing experience of my life.
I had no idea that it was for a national television spot, let alone a Super Bowl commercial. I was originally told it was for an internet ad, so when I arrived to a million dollar plus set and was sent to a trailer with my name on it, I was shocked.
The production was awesome. I got to shoot with Jimmy Cliff, meet great people, and oh… be in a commercial!! The best part was watching something I created be recreated into an actual production. It was surreal seeing a cartoon me holding a basket of cats on a giant storyboard. That sounds pretty surreal. You told me that you moved out to L. The video opened so many doors and completely changed my life. I went camping there a couple months ago and it was just gorgeous. It was like being inside a Dr.
Seuss book or on another planet. The giant boulders and rock formation were beautiful and hiking through the Park was super cool. Well, thanks sweet lady for taking the time to do this interview and godspeed in your acting goals!
