C.Bullock-Trainer to the KIA Hamsters !


I was blessed to be part of the new KIA Soul Hamster Commercial featuring the new Lady Gaga song “Applause”. We had a 2 day shoot for the parts I’m part of. The first day we filmed all the fitness shots

kia-10and the second was a night shoot from  5 pm – 6am for the red carpet scene. The guys who wore the hamster suits were amazing! They were working out with those heavy hot suits on all day. It was barely possible to move let alone jump rope, box, and run! It was awesome to be able to be the hamsters fitness instructor (and get a feature from my toosh).  I got to pick some of my favorite Pilates moves to get them into shape. Don’t doubt  my powers to transform! Check out the commercial below. The campaign has already picked up Effie awards and Nielsen’s “Automotive Ad of the Year” honor and racked up tens of millions of YouTube views!
