So I have to be honest - if you hadn’t already guessed it, my picture with the infamous missing Bronx Zoo Cobra a few days ago was…. a fake! The picture was actually a Photoshopped (thanks James!) behind-the-scenes picture I took a few months ago when I shot a hair commercial for Syoss (no cobra was on set).
You know how there’s always that casual slow-motion hair flick shot in EVERY haircare commercial? Well I’m going to divulge a trade secret and let you know that getting that “casual moment” right takes a series of wires, pulleys, a crew of stage hands and about 3 hours of filming to pull off. If you’d like to see the results, go HERE.

I’m seeing a theme here: Yesterday I posted a photo of the long lost “Bronx Zoo Cobra” and myself on set, though I notice many of my non-NY-followers didn’t get the joke. Today I’m posting a never-before-seen video of Siri Tollerod and I posing with an elephant and camel at Montreal Zoo this winter. It was an amazing experience but what this video cannot describe is the INTENSE fumes we battled in the elephant den all day. Also, literally every 20 minutes the elephant would release a deluge-like flood as it went to the bathroom, sending everyone scrambling to find higher ground.
