My family was on TV last Saturday! Remember when that used to mean something? This was more on the level of being called down to The Price is Right, but never actually making it onstage. Here is how one of the attorneys from Kent’s work described it:
“Our very own Kent Kemeny will be making his television debut tomorrow evening on the hit TV show no one is talking about or watching: DIY Network’s “I Want That”. Kent will be shamelessly, or perhaps shamefully, shilling an overpriced, useless product described in the TV listings as “a wall-mounted storage unit for pocket items” in exchange for a few minutes in the bright lights. So search the upper reaches of your channel lineup for the DIY Network, and set your DVRs for 5:30pm tomorrow night. I am told (byKent) that his reenactment scene is not to be missed.”
Yes, I got to do the segment on a home smart device called The Mother, but Kent got The Butler. It’s basically a $20 key and wallet holder that sells for $120. But the TV cameras are so seductive, that Kent was heard to say, “It’s peace of mind. I always know where my keys and wallet are. Can’t put a price on that!” What? Of course you can put a price on that. A price substantially below $120.
Anyway, we didn’t watch it. We don’t get the DIY Network. We did order a DVD of the episode, though, for like $15. It’s our family’s debut on the very, very small screen! Can’t put a price on that!! Except, like $15.
