Imagine having a phone call that goes like this “I’m scouting for a crew. Jagermeister want to send a group of mates to explore Iceland for two weeks, all expenses paid, it’ll all be shot for an ad which if it gets run, you’ll be paid £xxxx. If it goes global there’s £xxxx more.”
Yeah…Me too! So when Gabe Davies rang the office I was pretty excited.
“Do you know anyone that would be free?”
“Are you sure…”
“Ok, maybe a couple of guys…”
OK so that didn’t wash so several crews were put up for the shortlist and asked to send in videos. As a result, five surfers went on the best surf trip of their lives, and I cried into my cider swearing never to drink the evil herbal beverage brewed by monks again in my life…Until I drank another cider and had to have a Jagermeister to cheer myself up..Which ended in a vicious circle of crying, smashing shots, then crying and more smashing shots…Anyway…Don’t you worry about it lads..
