Car Show Audition

My agent asked me to create a 3-5 minute audition tape for a Car Show pilot. I'm thinking, "Car Show? I don't know anything about cars?!? And I am NOT a 'car show' type girl." So here is my audition. Might be a little different than what he expected...

Music by: The Allman Brothers, "Rambling Man"

    I need a new car...I didn't know what to get.....for some strange reason I have this new wierd attraction to Volvos. I want to be hip, I want to be in a volvo!!! Thank you for opening my eyes!

    i totally agree. volvo is the new escalade, and pipes are the new ipods.

    you rock.

    Great job, Amanda. Now how about doing one to promote my business? Nothing says soial responsibility like sticking up for the little guy.

    My parents had a green volvo (not lime green, mind you, but more like forest green). It's the first car I ever remember my family owning. Brings back the memories. Great video!

    Hey Amanda....You should do commercials for Volvo. You're good at it. :)

    Some poeple do modify these vehicles, such as myself. Thank you for perpetuating the stereotype of volvos that allows my insurance rates to stay low and perplex those i embarrass on the race track. btw nice 240.

    right..Im hoping that not scarcasm.
    wanna see what becomes of a volvo with a few bucks? http://www.pbase.com/dkauer744/new_pictures

    not to shabby eh? I own one, I love it. I do modify mine like nxtrx...people just hate turbovolvos, its uttlery humilating to get trashed by a 25+year old volvo.

    Can you please point me in the direction where I can get my time back? As said before thanks for being an idiot and keeping my insurance low....."because only old people drive volvo's"

    Lol, but I still prefer my old Renault (plenty of jokes there). Like your presenting style. The bbc do a lighthearted car program called top gear. I consider that most car tv shows are boring the bbc one O mentioned I will watch.

    Interesting... You remind me of a bit of Amy Poehler, you got those crazy eyes and crackheadish movements going on. I mean that in a goodway.

    Hi, I was just looking around some blogs and checking different templates for ideas. Good blog with a nice template. I can start my own blog on ebooks thanks to your blog. I will visit weekly by the way. Like your ideas.

    You were pretty nice to my first ride. I bet 'Maria' is still running in some small town somewhere, clockin' 300,000 miles and ready to smash through a brick wall should the situation present itself.

    Killer vlog/blog BTW. Methinks you've got a career in the making, just wait for the sheep to catch up.

    muse, muse, muse

    My best friend says his Volvo is the best car he's ever owned! Still running strong after a gazillion miles. Okay, so I know that's not the point of your video, but at least you picked a good car to review!
