Random Violin

1.5 seconds of fame

Have I mentioned that my nephew models? Up until recently he's only done catwalk stuff, including summer and winter parades for David Jones and Ermenegildo Zegna,(and a recent trip to Milan) but now he's branching out into tv commercials. His first job was a Woolworths ad where he was sat so far down a long picnic table that his nearest and dearest couldn't spot him, but his next job gave him a bit more exposure. I still had to slow-mo the ad to pick him out, though. Right at the 34 second mark, just to the right of the main character (who apparently is someone famous? I dunno).

I hope this leads to more work for him; if he had had to rely on his modelling to pay his way he'd have starved to death by now.
