Last month I was invited on set for the filming of the PERI Duo Case launch ad. This is THE case that iPhone users (myself included) have been waiting for! It’s the world’s first charging case with Bluetooth & wifi enabled speakers… & it’s a must-have accessory.
I’m driving around East Los Angeles on a Sunday morning, looking for the address. Siri isn’t helping too much and I’m left to go against her (incorrect) driving directions to figure it out on my own. I stumble upon the warehouse when she lets me know that I “have arrived at my destination.” I’m pretty excited… I mean (other than my very cool experience filming for LA Ink a few years ago) I’ve never been “casted” for anything….sure, I’m an extra, but it’s still pretty cool.
When I walk in, I’m greeted by new friend, Clint Schaff, who I met through my friends at Rhymesayers, at the Camp Flog Naw Carnival. Clint is the star of the commercial, and the one who invited me. We’re going to be filming a party scene & I get to be one of the party-goers. I think I can handle that. 😉
The set is newly built and it’s really cool. There are multiple “rooms” that Clint will walk through, as he shows the speakers in action.
We mingle & make small talk with one another. It’s good practice for our camera time. Soon, they call us to the set & we’re ready for our close ups…
After placing us around the room and testing camera range, they yell, “Action!” Cameras are rolling & all we have to do is smile and have a good time. It’s pretty easy to do.
After a few runs, it’s a wrap – for our scene, anyway. Party’s over. We head back to the room where we all originally met & enjoy our lunch (provided by the PERI Team).
After my meal, and some great conversations with some really cool people, I’m off to enjoy my Sunday and the beautiful Southern California weather.
You can watch the full commercial, support the PERI project & pre-order your case (at a discounted, early bird rate) by clicking here.
I’m also super excited to announce that Rhymesayers has decided to partner with PERI to offer their fans a Limited Edition PERI Duo case! You can pre-order yours here.

Special Thanks to Clint Schaff, The team at PERI & of course, the guys at Rhymesayers for letting me be a part of this!
On a side note:
As I post this blog entry, my roomies coincidentally start talking about their first ever personal music players… Did you ever have a Walkman? What was the first cassette you listened to on it…? This (single) was mine…
