Doing TV work

If you've read the CarMD review on my site, you'll know that I recommend it as quite a useful tool. Well today I was called up to do my bit for the world of infomercials. As the author of this site, CarMD wanted me to do some time on camera giving a testimonial about their product. It's important for me to stress to you all that there was zero financial reward for this - they simply asked if I'd do it, and I said "sure thing".
The day was a lot of fun. I've been on TV before for various things, from the original Boycott The Pumps protest back in England in 2000, to motoring shows on TV, to the odd news spot where they've wanted a talking head that knew something about cars. Today was no different. We spent about 40 minutes filming, of which I expect to see between 8 and 12 seconds used in one of their ads.
I don't know if I'm going to feature in regular TV ads, short or long infomercials, but if you see a CarMD commercial come on, don't skip it this time - watch closely and you might see me. I'm the English bloke wearing the blue and grey shirt ....

Cool. Do you know if it's going to be nationally televised or just regionally?
