A few months ago I received an email from AOL asking if I was interested in giving them / a film crew a tour of my favorite spots in Boulder in the new 2015 Jeep Renegade.
I’m kinda used to random things happening in my life but this one was up there. How they found me I don’t know, but I’m glad they did. What a fun project. We talked about a time to shoot and they were super easy to work with to set up a two day shoot. The day of the shoot, at 6am, I had a film crew at my house ready with two high end RED cameras and smiles. With the help of my friend and neighbor Larkin we were off to give a damn good tour of Boulder. I picked Chautauqua, Trident and UBikes as my three spots to stop at… enough talking, here is the piece:
Cool huh? It turned out really well IMHO. Really well.
Some reoccurring questions answered:
- They did not give me the Jeep and did not let me steal it.
- I thought it was a great car and at ~$18k think that is a great price
- The model I drove was the first ish model in the USA so it had some fun quirks. There were buttons that didn’t work that should have and the lights didn’t really stay during the day unless I was pushing the lights lever forward.
- The film crew worked for AOL and not Jeep, so I never have actually talked with them.
- I had a ton of fun
