Director Statement

I wrote this infomercial spoof, because a mom, the older my daughter got, the more "out of touch" and "lame" or embarrassing I became. I embraced it and that helped me to make this cringey and is somewhat reminiscent of a variety show skit. This is totally relatable and hilarious!
