When book promotions go bad

A while back Ridley and I went to the Magic Kingdom to make sales videos for one of our Starcatchers books.

We shot the videos inside the park before it opened, when the park workers were getting everything ready. The idea of the videos was that we were supposed to come running out of the Peter Pan ride – Peter Pan’s Flight – and yell various scripted greetings to booksellers and book-buyers.

Needless to say we kept messing up; also, the park workers kept making p.a. announcements, which ruined some takes. These problems frustrated the video crew but struck Ridley and me as increasingly hilarious, as you can see in these outtakes.
