Author Video

This makes me wince, which is why I haven't shown it before. 

When I spoke about Stalking the Wild Dik-Dik in a bookstore in 2007, a guy in the audience approached me afterwards. He worked at an advertising agency and they were trying to sell a product to a book publisher—author videos for websites. 

But they needed to make a sample video. "You're perfect for this!" 

Okay. I showed up, a woman piled make-up onto me, and she then had to spray my hair every few minutes to stop the flyaways. 

It's really not bad now that I look at it from the distance of a few years, but I look pretty silly. 

There might be a reason for that.
