Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

Oh my god.

Kilala ko ang mga salarin na gumawa nito, ahahaha!

Oh my goodness. I remember when Alice Dixon, “I can feel it” and her roll-left-shoulder-twice-then-head-twist-to-the-left-with-matching-big-smile! movement was all over the pop-o-sphere when that came out. (It also drove up the sales of Palmolive Soap, but why talk about that?) No self-respecting gay man at that time would want to be caught not knowing that shoulder-and-smile move.

We can laugh now at how cheesy the whole thing is, but at that time it was groundbreaking. And our client laughed all the way to the bank on that one.
