Turns out I was on tv after all!

Original post: Day 53: It’s a green day on Carson Daly

Back in June, Jason and I attended a taping of Last Call with Carson Daly, where Green Day performed a bunch of songs. I never saw the broadcast, so I didn’t know for sure whether my face actually appeared on tv. Now, thanks to YouTube, I’ve confirmed that it did.

Here’s a screenshot of one of the videos. I’m in the yellow circle and Jason is in the red.

I believe this is my second appearance on national television. My first would’ve been an MTV game show called Sandblast. In 1995 when I visited Orlando, my friend Pokey and I stumbled upon a taping of the show and they put us in the crowd for a couple of scenes. But then we left, because it was so boring.

I never saw the video of that show either, but since there were only about 25 people in the crowd, I’m sure our faces must have been visible.

I’m adding both of these appearances to my acting resume. I wonder if I’m now eligible for an Emmy?

Here’s how the entire song looked. My award-winning cameo comes at 1:28. Don’t blink.
