Fifty Ways

Part of US News’ Fifty Ways to Improve your Life in 2008 year-ender feature was an informal video of assorted US News staff giving the fifty tips (video viewable at the upper right of the “50 Ways” page). I make an appearance at around 3m 20s, telling you to smell the roses, because smelling roses is ostensibly good for the brain. (Unfortunately the location I was shooting in lacked flowers of any kind, so I was unable to introduce any expository props into my brief soliloquy.) I had not realized I appear so stiff and expressionless on camera. Next time I am invited to appear in a video I will have to try and channel The Shat.

Russell makes an appearance directly after as well, saying something about corn.
