Since George Michael has been so popular on the WOW Report lately, I’m going to write about a music video I did for him in 2003. The video was for his song “Freeek!” It was shot at Universal Studios and directed by Joseph Kahn. Our call time was 5PM and we didn’t finish shooting until nearly 6AM! It was one of those dreaded night shoots outdoors in the middle of winter.
I was booked as a “kissing couple” with my friend Angela. We were supposed to make out and simulate sex along with seven other “kissing couples.” While freezing your ass off in skimpy clothes during those late hours, a warm bed was more appealing than a half-naked person gyrating in front of you. Needless to say, no one was acting as scandalous as George and Joseph would have liked.
George Michael got on the loudspeaker and said “C’mon, get sexy! It’s not like you’re in a Beverly Hills police station in handcuffs,” referring to his men’s-room jackoff scandal that seems never to go away. After a moment of forced laughter from all the extras (when the star makes a joke you had better find it hilarious), we got right back to our sexy dancing and turned the heat up while remaining cold and tired. The video looked spectacular in the end, and the song was quite good. Unfortunately, it didn’t put him back on top of the charts. Jacking his cock in a public bathroom and narcoleptic car crashing got him more attention. If he could combine those talents with his song writing skills, he might be onto something.
