Randy and Me (2009)

2005. My husband, radio personality, Randy Holman, and I formed a production company, On Fire Productions.  We did documentaries and commercials for clients.  We liked to evoke a tear or a giggle.  We wore all the hats.  Randy filmed (we hired videographers when we were both in a scene or my son, Gavin, took over, when available.)  On projects Randy was particularly interested in, he wore a bunch of hats. On co-productions, I generally, I wrote, did wardrobe, staging, directed and edited. My favorite thing to do was write campy commercials with Randy and I playing off-the-wall characters.  Since losing him in 2012, I’m thankful I have these happy/funny moments to remember!

“How To Dump Your Dishwasher”  (2010) Commercial for Duerden’s Appliance Center.

Randy (Old Man – Jerry Attricks), approaches the salesmen.


He inquires if they will help him get rid of his Old Dishwasher.


“You bet!” they say.  “We’ll install your new one and haul your old one away.”


Old Man wheels his Old Dishwasher in.

“Hey!”, she exclaims, looking around.  “This isn’t the pantyhose store….”


Disclaimer:  My old man (Randy), happily often did the dishes!  😉

Since I was a little girl, I’ve always loved putting crazy costumes together, then acting out a character.  Camp has always been my thing!  😀  I had fun with this wardrobe.  Randy is wearing my dad’s retro shirt, tie, (stuffed) pants, shoes and glasses! Found the granny dress and glasses at a thrift store.  Thought the hair rollers net and cotton would be a fun touch.  Can you guess how I created these wobblers?  (No, ha, sorry….not mine) 😉  I thought of a trick for the effect that I’m not sure has been used before…)

      Thank you, Dino! I know… I had fun going to a store in my get-up and enjoying the looks on people’s faces. 😉

    Guess my hearing is going out; I could have sworn you said: “Heeeey – This isn’t the bideo stow-er”.
    Like you tried to say “video store”, but you didn’t have the teeth to form the “v” sound. Haha – anyway – it’s still funny.
    Randy looked a little like a younger Bruce Dern when he first walked into the store. He seems like a really cool, fun person.
    My sincere condolences for your family’s loss.

      Oh, ha ha, Rhett, that’s funny, too! At least that works in the same vain I intended. She’s ended up somewhere different than where her ‘Old man’, told her she was going… Glad I wrote it out on my blog, so it is understood. 😉
      Thanks so much for your fun and your kindness. <3

    Well, thank you Deborah for being so personable – Oh! The “wobblers” – my guess is water balloons dangling from some sort of harness?

      Thank you, Rhett! So nice of you to say. 🙂 And… Correct! You got it! 😀

    No! – – -Wait! – – –
    Water balloons inside PANTYHOSE legs!

    This would make me want to shop there more than a boring ordinary commercial would. Great job!

      That’s so nice to hear, Mike. Thanks. I’ve always thought it fun when promoting anything, to do it with humor! 🙂

    Cute, clever, and funny commercial!

    I hope you eventually post the other commercial… it’s been a few years since I last watched it, but I remember it had the same character in the shower! Hee hee!
    I hope you have been well, Deborah!

    Keeping you and your sweet Randy in my thoughts!

      You are so very kind, Tony. Thank you so kindly. <3 And yes, I shall post the shower one, one day soon! ha ha... Awesome that you remember that from youtube! 😀

    Your commercial was hilarious! When he brought you into the store, I snorted my drink out of my nose. I’m sorry to hear that you lost your husband.

      Well, I sure LOVE to hear that reaction to my commercial, Jimmy! Thank you SO much for taking the time to tell me. 🙂 I appreciate, also, your condolences. <3
