So during our stay in KL, we got on well with the hostel owners and when we were there they were promoting a coffee they were making and we had a tasting morning where they gave us their new coffee and put on a lovely Malaysian breakfast and a photographer took photos of us doing so.
A bit later on in the morning we were asked if we would help them out and be in their advert…”Sure! Why not!?” we answered, this sounds like fun! Later on in the day they asked if we were ready and we got filming. We imagined us and a few others maybe being in the advert, but no, it was just Adam and I. And we had to (try and) act. Not either of our strong points to say the least. Needless to say, about 20 takes later they were happy with what we could produce (not a lot at all) and probably thought they should go with what they had as we really couldn’t give them any more!
We will not be disclosing the name of the coffee or where we were staying as even though we are proud to say we did it, I am very sure in saying that no-one actually needs to witness what we produced. It can only be described as a homemade advert with shocking acting!
So I am very proud to say we have starred in our own Malaysian coffee advert and were paid with a Burger King dinner. And who said we were cheap…!?!
