A mainstream movie, starring Paco

    I have now officially used up approximately 3 seconds of my 10 minutes
    of fame.

    There's this new movie that just came out on DVD yesterday called,
    "'Everything You Want' (http://www.painted-love.net/)." It's a decent
    romantic comedy, made for TV quality, but that's okay by me. But what
    makes it especially good is that there is a unicyclist in it for about
    3 seconds! And it's me!

    Okay, so I'm only on my unicycle in two scenes (the other time, I'm
    walking across the screen in the background. Twice.) But in one of
    the ending scenes, one of the main characters runs down some steps and
    has to stop quickly to avoid getting hit by me as I ride by.

    I admit, this film is not a cinematic masterpiece, but it's better than
    a lot of made-for TV movies. The story is fun and original and it's
    mostly harmless. But that's not the reason for watching it.

    I suggest that you all run out to your local Wal-Mart (at least, that's
    where I found my copy). And if you ask me real nicely, I may even
    consider autographing your copies of the film, seeing as I'm a big
    movie star now and everything. :D

    Here's a better picture from the same scene. And you may have to look
    very carefully in the other scenes to find me.

    I don't see "Special Cameo Appearance by Paco" in the credits....:mad:

    Should you be embarrassed to appear in a movie with a *pink* title?
    No! :p

    Nice going! Was there a lot of standing around?

    Congratulations on your (and the unicycle's) screen time!

    Now I know you were following a script/direction, but...

    The guy coming down the stairs is obviously looking to his left so he
    doesn't see you coming (or expect something fast, I guess can be
    reasonably supposed). So what's your excuse? In other words, your
    character seems to ride straight down the sidewalk, not paying
    attention to cross traffic. It probably happens so fast nobody really
    cares, but I'm just thinking about the image of us unicyclists as
    portrayed by "the media."

    Yeah, let's see more unicycles in mainstream films!
