I’ve gone Hollywood!
In 2014 I was the “celebrity economist” in a series of videos for the newly redesigned Ford Transit Connect, a nifty van that’s customizable, maneuverable, fuel-efficient, and could be just right for your small business!
I filmed a “Numbers Don’t Lie” 30-second promo video, plus the 90-second “Tomatoes” video you see here and four other 90-second videos: “Petting Zoo”, “Surf Shop”, “Salvage Recycle”, and “Roadside Rescue”. And FYI see also this ad starring Nobel laureate Thomas Sargent!
