I had to double check.
120,000 yen for just one day’s work? That’s, er, £500 (US$1000).
I didn’t actually realise that the agency that I did some TV work for last week were keeping my details on record – I was only doing it for a one-off bit of fun, and to promote small ear-lobes.
Thus my surprise when I got that phone call a few minutes ago, asking me if I’d like to audition for a commercial for a travel agency that will be broadcast nationwide for up to six months.
I guess that means I’ll have to get my hair cut again.
Of course, there’s no guarantee that I’ll make it to the auditions, let alone the actual shoot.
But, tee hee, that’s the first time I’ve had someone offer me so much money for 10 hours of my time!
Sadly I didn’t make it! Wel, there’s always next time!
