the camera crew in my kitchen

A few months ago, I dropped the kids off at school and came home to find this in my kitchen.

Two cameras.

4 lights.

A camera crew.

A make-up artist.

A big platter of breakfast pastries.

A professional interviewer.

And me.

It was a shoot for the new Pledge ® Multi-Surface II Antibacterial Cleaner’s appearance on the Health and Home Report with Laura DeAngelis.

Did I mention it was for Pledge ® Multi-Surface II Antibacterial Cleaner?

We practiced our lines.

FULL DISCLOSURE:   I practiced MY lines over and over while Laura was super sweet and supportive.

Of course!

That is how it is in my kitchen!

I am VERY serious about Pledge ® Multi-Surface II Antibacterial Cleaner.

Except I couldn’t say it.

You try!  

Go ahead.

Say, “Pledge ® Multi-Surface II Antibacterial Cleaner” 5 times really fast.

In my kitchen.

And then I had to not OBVIOUSLY read it.

I am not normally coordinated, so this too was a challenge.

The long-suffering crew was so patient with me.

I can’t say enough nice things about the whole event.

After the Health and Home Report interview was completed, we shot some additional video for the web.

I cleaned electronics.

I cleaned unexpected places…

It was a fun, exhausting day that was completely out of the ordinary for me.   I want to thank the entire crew and the team that works on Pledge ® Multi-Surface II Antibacterial team.

I am also VERY excited about this because it kicks off a month long Pledge ® Multi-Surface II Antibacterial Cleaner Extravaganza here at June Cleaver Nirvana.   They have graciously sponsored my blog this month and allowed me to plan some fun things over the next few weeks.

Oh, and when I know when/where you can view my brilliant video performance, I will let you know!   In the meantime, be sure to check out for more information about Pledge ® Multi-Surface II Antibacterial Cleaner
