This time people get paid, so it's probably WB behind this. The extras in the Breakfast Can Wait video didn't receive any payment.

Well this is good news imo. I've long thought that FunknRoll was easily the most promising of the new tracks, and I even remember expressing the wish that it be released as a single in the Fallinlovetonite chart thread, so it's good to see my wish finally come true (I actually remember Kcool replying to me at the time that he was sure FunknRoll would get its time to shine, so good prediction there smile ).

One thing I wonder though, is that if the widespread org speculation that there are two different versions of FunknRoll, one for each disc, is true, which one will be released as the single?

Both? Would that make sense?

if they're asking for a drummer could this be the solo version?

Yeah, good point, I actually thought about that myself for a minute, but it's my dad's birthday and I'm quite sloshed, so when it actually came to typing my post I had completely forgotten that factor smile

Thanks for the heads up.

I don't think i fit the spec ... but I'll chance it.

Maybe they are looking for a novelty white 50-something, non-rollerskating, non-drummer male, ... or I'll sneak in undetected.

It's worth a shot.

2. No paint buckets.
3. 15 minutes for a go see on Saturday. The video shoot is not on Saturday.
4. WB has nothing to do with this is official or your joke?

Good that there will be a video !
Whilst I obviously don't know the context of the video, it seems a little odd to specify only "ethnic" or African American people ?? Are you even allowed to discriminate / specify ethnicity in a job spec ?

U can't very well get Wesley snipes portraying a white character. Or get James gandolfini portraying a gym rat.
Typical jobs, u can't discriminate. Casting and casting calls for movies, videos, etc follow different rules cuz of the natuer and needs of the job and the roles.

i think the video is going to be a mix of both versions, so it can promote both albums.
