Dania Denise in New Viral Commercial for Thump.com...Up on YouTube! Plus Behind the Scenes Video & Photos

So in case you weren't aware, I'm also an actor. Just like in modeling, sometimes it takes a while to see the final results of the projects I've worked on. Last year I shot a viral commercial for a new sports gaming website called Thump.com.

I was one of four "Thump Girls." It was an amazing shoot that was so much fun because not only did the commercial feature three other models from my agency, Models, Inc., we also got to shoot with a World Series of Poker champion, Phil Hellmuth. Later on that evening we also got to take pictures with a former NFL star/49er, Bill Romanowski. He was shooting another commercial spot for Thump but we weren't in that one.

Anyways, after the shoot wrapped, we had no idea when the commercial would be live online and I had almost totally forgotten about it. Luckily, I saw one of my fellow Thump Girl's posts on Facebook and it motivated me to check Thump.com just for fun...little did I know the site was up and running, including our commercial! So here it is...it's pretty much a spoof of the Dos Equis commercials (sorry about the crappy layout of the video and how it overlaps everything...darn that embedding code!):

Below is video commentary I did the night of the shoot. It was a long night but the crew was fabulous and we're all glad everything came together.

Fun pictures from the shoot...notice how it starts out in the daytime then gets super dark...it was a long shoot:

A shot of the backyard area.

The pool table...one of our location shots.

Yet another location shot for the commercial...and also our chill spot in between shooting.

This is where they set up the poker game.


Our makeup crew was so awesome!
