Freudian Slips spotlights irony in short story format.

We Are The World...AIDS Commercial

Airing on the Comast Cable Channel is a socially responsible commercial that I filmed in as an actor. The 36 second spot generates HIV awareness. The commercial is as much a fingerprint of my acting as it is my career in social work.

The message of this commercial is statistically revealing. Of the six billion people sharing this planet, forty two million people are infected with the virus that causes AIDS. Inescapably inseparable in our human interactions, we must all act responsibly.

Here is the link to the commercial. The download takes less than a minute. I can be seen in the first five seconds of the commercial sporting a white shirt and sparse hair. Near the end of the commercial, the camera films an aerial view of the group aligned in a human ribbon, the symbol for HIV awareness. I can be seen near the knot in the ribbon bow, holding the commercial together if you will.

You are the prettiest actress in the commercial. I hear salsa dancing can take a few pounds off if you are that hard on yourself. lol
