    I am going to be in a commercial for a Shawerma joint here in town.
    I am either going to look like an ass (likely) or have agents calling me non-stop once the spot hits the air.

    But yeah, it is about time this gorgeous face of mine started to pay off. biggrin:

    At least I might get a free shawerma out of the deal plus maybe some local fame. :rolleyes:

    How come American fast food is considered crap but hippies and hipsters flock to the foreign type.

    It is crap.


    The angle is...I am a college student with a sub, i look disgusted at it & then it magically turns into a Shawarma (or however the hell you spell it) & I am then stoked.

    Maybe I need a hipster gaza strip scarf. :disgust:
    Something tells me that may offend the client.

    American fast food is crap for the most part.

    This place is what fast food is all about. Plus, it's actually FAST!

    I like Del taco. I like subway and quiznos. I love In N Out. I have a weakness for Wendy's spicy chicken sandwich. Other than that. Meh.

    I will devour a veggie Chicago dog from here. Also I am a sucker for a good fish sandwich or a nice sub (not subway though). But that is about it.

    Best Mexican food I have ever had was in the middle of Nebraska.

    It only takes one good chef to make good food.

    You should know mid-western boy....there are tons of middle-eastern people out here. I think there are more in Michigan per capita than any other state.

    You should also know that I am going sniff out the best ethnic food (I tried the place after they opened & had some kick ass grub there) where ever the hell I am.

    How about in CO...many shawerma places?

    I think I am going to wear my RM dh jersey for the shoot. It is the only jersey I have & jerseys are what the "typical college" guy would wear right?

    Yeah - but Wisconsin is a LONG way from Detroit.

    There are probably a few... but I don't really get too excited about shawarmas to be honest. There's a place in Golden that serves up some pretty decent chow:

    Neither really get me excited about eating them to be honest. Maybe I've never had a REALLY good one. :D

    There's a cop here in town that looks like Sammy Davis Jr. It makes me think of Cannonball Run and I smile. I loved that movie. His name is Fudge. I love that too.

    I think you are confusing shawormas with gyros. gyros are like giant sausages on a spit. shaworma is sliced meat on a spit.
