Orange Commercial: "Blackout"

I was in this commercial as an extra. The set was gigantic. The scene depicted is the 2003 New York City blackout. The advertiser, Orange, which is a major communications company for England, actually paid to clear multiple city blocks in Manhattan to shoot the commercial. I am most definitely not visible, although I might theoretically be in the aerial shot of the huge crowd.

The commercial was made for movie theaters and apparently is played all the time. For you Joanna Newsom fans, she’s the background singer. No idea who the narrator or protagonist are, although I had a scene with him that got cut. It’s amazing how little footage made it into the final product. The shoot went on for days and days. Whatever. Enjoy:
