I was inspired by Big Jim's article on CNBC to finally go ahead and get around to uploading my 2005 interview with NBC-10.

Here is a link to the original thread: http://forums.gottad...ead.php?t=21028

I ripped this from VHS tape a while ago, but never got around to uploading it. I had thought that I would need to deal with optimizing it for online viewing, but recently learned that YouTube takes care of all of that...

So, without further ado, here I am: Posted Image

It was recorded at NBC-10 Studios on 11/11/05, but didn't air until 11/22/05. I tried to sling for GottaDeal as much as I could but they only used a fraction of what was recorded.

In hindsight, it was kinda funny that it took longer to drive there and back than I actually spend there (about 1/2 hour at the studio). Tracy Davidson was really nice in person and it was a thrill to both represent GottaDeal and to meet someone you see on TV on a regular basis.

And it goes without saying, but the specific prices mentioned are from 2005, not the current ads... :eyepoppin

From one geek to another, I actually like that stripe shirt. I would've thought you'd want to debut the newly developed gottadeal.com t-shirt, but excellent choice for a TV interview nonetheless. :D

We actually were trying to get a shirt to him. We had a sample GD golf shirt that we sent but it wasn't the right size. I don't think the t-shirts were out yet at that point.

Thanks, I wanted to be dressed "business casual" -- dressy enough to look like I cared, but not too dressy.

Yeah, I was swimming in the polo shirt that Brad sent. I did mail it off to a GD member so someone's husband is wearing it and "represenentin'"! Posted Image

Well, I think you looked nice. There is no way I could do what you did though. I would be too nervous.

Oh, I was fully prepped.

Brad and I exchanged many PMs and Ross and I talked over the phone extensively including a call from the parking lot of NBC10 moments before I walked in.

Thanks for all the positive feedback, guys. If I had looked into how to upload videos to YouTube sooner, I could've posted this a long time ago.

LOL! Love it Marc! I would never be able to do that on TV, although I find myself constantly tellling everyone about gottadeal.com. What I really need is some business cards! lmao I'll tell people and they'll repeat it a few times trying to memorize it but probably by the time they get home they forget. Although DS's Dr. did write it down the other day,lmao.

LOL! NBC10 specifically wanted someone local so they could do the interview in the studio. But, hey, if you were willing to drive to Philly, you should've told Brad. :tongue1:

The CBS Evening News called today wanting me to go somewhere to shoot an interview. But there was no way I could leave for that long of a time. Plus the story wasn't supposed to run until Friday night - what good is that? lol :P
