On yesterday’s wrestling podcast, I mentioned that in early 2016, I got to make some videos with WWE Superstar Dean Ambrose. To make it even better, when we filmed the shorts, Dean was the WWE World Heavyweight Champion!
Ambrose was a really cool guy to work with. We spent a couple days filming these two shorts, and we definitely have plans to film a few more next time he’s back in Toronto.
Episode 1: Clean Ambrose
This is the first episode we filmed. It’s kind of an interesting story though. We had written a few scripts for us to try out on our first day of filming, but we never actually got around to filming any of those scripts. We were just shooting the shit waiting for the crew to finish setting up for the scene, and out of nowhere Dean said that he needed to have a shower, but that he didn’t know how to do it. It was such a weird moment to be in, but luckily the cameras were rolling, so we just went with it and I spent the day teaching Dean Ambrose how to shower.
Episode 2: Dean Dean Ambrose
When we were writing this episode, Dean mentioned that he used to be a teacher and had experience in creating tests, so we agreed that I would write the rest of the episode, all he had to do was make the test. As I’m sure you can tell from watching the episode, I think Dean lied about being a teacher. But that’s what you get when you work with a lunatic I guess.
Anyway, I hope you liked the episodes and I can’t wait for Dean to get back so we can film some more.
One last thing
I also mentioned that comedian Mark Little had a joke that references Bam Bam Bigelow. Well I found a taping of it from Just For Laughs in 2012. It’s part of a joke about pranks. The joke starts at 3:10 of the video (and the Bam Bam Bigelow part starts at 3:40), but I recommend watching the whole set if you have the time. Mark Little is one of the funniest comedians in Canada, so if you ever get the chance to go see him live, definitely go do that. At the very least, watch some more of his videos.
