Earlier this week, we got an email from one of our Soundcheck Resolutions participants - Andrea. (You might remember her as the psychotherapist who wanted to start an “all-shrink” band.) She shared some good news with us that we’re going to write about later this week. But her email also included something else that we found particularly interesting: a link to this 1992 “Back to the Grill” MC Serch music video.
See, it turns out that Andrea was an extra in the video (she’s the red-haired hippie dancer at :40, as well as one of the scurrying nuns at 1:56). She sent us the link because we recently talked about Nas’s latest album, Life is Good - and Nas (back then, “Nasty Nas”) is featured in the song and video.
But what we really want to know is - how many of our listeners, like Andrea, have been in music videos? If you’ve been an extra (or a featured character) in one, we REALLY want to hear from you. What was your experience like? How did you get the part? Have you ever inadvertently been in one - and found out later? And - obviously - you must include the YouTube link.
Prior to joining Soundcheck in early 2011, Katie was an associate producer at Martha Stewart Living Radio on Sirius XM - where, by the way, she learned how to make a mean roast chicken. She has also worked for Marketplace, Jazz at Lincoln Center Radio and The State of Things with Frank Stasio on North Carolina Public Radio.
