Randy Johnson


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.
