"I originally met Tommy in San Fransisco in an acting class, of all places and I watched him perform a Shakespearean sonnet. And I think everyone in the class was horrified." - Greg Sestero
The best part about this clip is when you read the context of it in The Disaster Artist. (BTW you should totally read it, it’s absolutely fantastic.)
See, Tommy Wiseau wanted a SAG card and found out he needed to be in something first, like a commercial or what have you. So he made this commercial for his business and cast himself in it, therefore buying himself a SAG card.
ALSO he saw Greg Sestero’s work in Retro Puppet Master and was so inspired by his performance that he was imitating it in this commercial.
So Tommy Wiseau made a Shakespearean Puppet Master ripoff commercial for his shady clothing business all in an attempt to get a SAG card before he just made his own movie anyway.
