Pretty Woman vs Dublin Man

Hey All.

I had a rather unusual day last Thursday. I went to meet the film makers of Rent-a-Friend for RTÉ‘s Storyland, to film a promo for their episode.

It was a parody of a scene in Pretty Woman… when Vivian wreaks revenge on the snooty bint in a posh Beverly Hills boutique, who refused to serve her. Except instead of a glamorous Vivian, it’s a dude, in jeans, looking to rub the sales assistants nose in his shopping haul.

We filmed in stylish vintage boutique, Horse & June on Drury Street, and yours truly stood in as the film’s snooty assistant.

Owner Zoe took a few behind the scenes shots:

I was in the shop earlier in the year to have a snoop about:

And this is the final video. It’s pretty darn funny (nothing to with me you understand, I’m just standing there being awkward )…

(Because of stupid licensing laws (love you Roy Orbison), you might not be able to watch it here but it works fine in youtube…)

If you think it’s a bit of a giggle, see the actual Rent-a-Friend episode HERE and vote away if my unashamed plugging hasn’t got you all riled up!
