Torso Failure


My partner has been wanting a human torso model like the one pictured above. He just wants one real bad. He's been searching ebay, but they can cost as much as $500 so he hasn't gotten one yet. So a couple weeks ago he and I are in my office working when one of the agency producers who doesn't know my partner walks into my office hefting a large cardboard box saying he has a present for me. He then pulls out the above torso complete with all the necessary organs to sustain life, and gives it to me while my partner watches in disbelief.

The torso was a prop from a tv show I worked on a year ago, and the production company decided to send us some of the props. Here's a clip of this torso in it's national debut (it's a non-speaking part). The woman in this clip is the actual health teacher from Bountiful high school in Utah. She was nice enough to come to L.A. and be interviewed for the show:



We also interviewed Lebron James. There's a couple links of that interview at the links below (you'll have to copy and paste):

"Thank you for coming on and teaching us about health and food and living a life that does those things". The best line in commercial history.....

The highlight for me were the matching yellow blazers and big puffy, plasticy couch that dwarfed poor Sue Bayless.

Richard said...

So did you keep the torso or did you give it to your friend?

Richard said...

Or better yet did you SELL it to your friend like, as my wife would say, a true Bagley.

Rand LeSueur said...

Richard, you still owe me $2.38 from our trip to subway in San Jose.

Richard said...

Randy, $2.38 is only the tip of the iceberg of what I owe you.

I just like saying the word "Torso".

Words I don’t like to say out loud or use in a sentence are “Lozenge” and “Hearty”. I especially hate it when the guy on the radio who does the Whataburger commercial says the words “Hearty” or “Biscuit”. Mostly because he sounds like he has a biscuit in his cheek while he’s doing the commercial. Plus he has a heavy southern drawl, which forces me to imagine that he has scrambled eggs in his beard. And that really bothers me.

Are you referring to your Life Partner?

Jason, are you still alive and well? We haven't heard from you in a while.

Jason Bagley. This is a voice from your past....Little Shari Lee Goodman. Stumbled onto your blog! Richard gave me the scoop on your family, congrats on the new baby!

Sidney said...

Jason Oh Jason where are you. If you think we are falling for the "I have more important things going on in my life than keeping up a silly blog" well we're not. Ok Ok new babies are a pretty good excuse. I just better hear from Jill that you've been helping her a lot.
