When Julius and Varun headed off to a shoot for this Jim Beam commercial, they were pretty happy. Along with 50 other people from MCTV they were going to get paid $33.62 per hour for a minimum of 6 hours on set having a bit of fun for the day.
Like a number of other MCTV people, Julius and Varun were actually booked for 2 days . Of course productions like these rarely go to schedule so there was overtime on both days so they ended up with almost a week’s pay for just 2 days.
What they didn’t expect was that they would be featured in the foreground of the commercial which gave them a very healthy boost to their earnings. By the end of it all they had enough for a holiday to Fiji, not bad for a couple of days work.
