It is certainly no secret that I love yogurt and cheese, but I was still puzzled (why me?) when I got an email from a creative director of an Australian ad agency asking if I would consider doing a 30-second television commercial as part of the “Legendairy” campaign for the Australian dairy industry.
But I was curious and then tempted. I could be up for some new stuff. But I would be in Provence in the summer and I was not going to break away from my summer retreat. No problem. They’d come to my home to film for a day or two. Okay, why not?
And so an easy-going, professional crew came from Australia, added a couple of Frenchies, et voilà.
I’m not sure I could get used to being referred to as "the talent" but it’s the advertising parlance. As for the Australian crew, a visit to Provence was a first for them, and in a few hours they fell in love with the light, the smell, the colors and anything French, including the local yogurt and cheese.
It was easy to smile. Life is good.
