I’m doing a Pepsi Max spot with a fabulous bunch of baseball players, Evan Longoria, Rickey Henderson, Mike Schmidt, whew!
There’s a gag where the pitcher throws a Pepsi Max bottle at a trash can. Randy Johnson is a very tall pitcher with huge leverage. I tell him to throw directly at the lens that is over sixty feet away, roughly the same distance as the mound from home plate.
There is a plexi cover for the lens (and us). Johnson hits the center of the lens! …with a plastic Pepsi Max bottle! I couldn’t tell if it was a curve or a slider.
