Poker Faces and Porn Shoots

A couple of weeks ago, a friend was getting interviewed for a TV show, so the TV crew shot me and the usual suspects playing poker at hisĀ  place.

The girl directing the shoot (or the cameramen) did not know anything about Poker and they asked us just to play normally and they’d shoot what they like.

Ten minutes into the shoot, this happens:

Director Girl: Umm…guys, I’m sorry to interrupt your game and I hope you don’t take this the wrong way – but we’re not getting any expressions on your faces.

Me: Thanks!


So, these guys make us repeat deal after deal, hand after hand, round after round – sometimes because they wanted a safety shot and sometimes because they did not get the shot from the right angle.

I turn over to a friend and whisper: “If these guys started shooting porn – they’d just wear the actors out.”

The friend looks at me and smiles slowly – and then points to his neck – lo and behold – a collar mic!

I look at the Director Girl sheepishly and she just shakes her head slowly and says “The things I hear on these shoots”…
