What’s cooking at Classic Hardware?
We thought it would be fun to put together a short commercial-type video for Classic Hardware. My long time friend Breezy (Bryan Petty) came up with the concept of “cooking up” our products in a retro setting. I added to his idea with the product that keeps coming out of the oven as an homage to “I Love Lucy“ when she pulls the long bread out of the oven, “Pioneer Women.” When I was a little girl my grandfather phoned me after a rerun of that episode aired, he told me that he had baked the actual bread for the show at the bakery he worked at in Hollywood, CA. I do Love Lucy and that episode has always been dear to my heart because of Grampa.
Breezy works in post production on one of my favorite shows, Always Sunny in Philadelphia along with Sean Palsgaard, who did the cinematography on this video. Breezy did the directing and editing and we think he did a great job all round! A special thanks to Ron Groeper, my sweetie, for letting us use his fantastic photo studio. Kudos to them and the lovely ladies of Classic Hardware, for their hard work and for being fun characters. Deirdre Hartman (The Villianess) and Michelle Oura (The Temptress) and then there’s me … The Damsel in Distress.
