Not me, but a guy I know was on Cash Cab. A lot of it was faked. He was told he would be on a travel food show and would get picked up by a fake taxi at a certain location at a certain time. There were camera crews all over outside the taxi and there’s no way on earth you might mistake it for a real cab.
I was a model for a few big name/well known make up companies. I did several print ads for magazines and a few television commercials.
The makeup artists do use the product advertised, but MINIMALLY. Like that mascara they’re touting? It’s over REALLY GOOD fake eye lashes and they also used another brand of mascara along with the one they’re trying to sell you.
Also – the clothes in the ads you see are pinned to high heaven on the model. They fit nothing like they look. It’s not you. It’s not your body. It’s fake advertising. Most of us models look just like you wearing that crap without all the pins and tucks and double sided tape.
iMore Apple 100% replaced the iPhone 4 for users because of a shitty antenna.
We were instructed to dodge, deflect, and deny this was the issue. Cellphone providers were shit, The phone was a fluke..it didn’t matter. Don’t admit fault.
But if they were there for reception (vs water damage, buttons or battery life) you had to make sure you were swapping them with the “Newer” batch iPhone 4 swaps rather than the typical batch swaps.
It was a recall without being a recall. But only if you had reception issues.
“I signed an NDA to waitress at a local family owned restaurant. The owner was nuts, definitely had a severe personality disorder, and was worried about his recipes getting leaked. The restaurant is dead now and his secret recipes consisted almost solely of frozen packaged food.
Signed an NDA when I worked as a fit model for Katy Perry’s shoe line. Basically a fit model is used for their good proportions to test out the fit of garments. I’m a solid size 7.5 so hooray for being average. I was hired on two occasions and got to hang out and give her my opinion on the fit, feeling, and comfort of different shoes.
Didn’t think she’d actually be there but both times she was present and totally running the show. Super nice woman in person and remembered me when we met again. Also she apologized for making me wait so long which I thought was nice.
Sony Pictures. I had to sign an NDA because I was part of a test screening for “The Dark Tower” with Idris Ilba. Tried to tell them it sucked. They didn’t want to listen.
Kraft Macaroni and Cheese are coming out with a more “modern and upscale” version to expand their market from lower income folks to higher income folks. It is almost entirely the same product as the 69¢ blue box, but will have a lighter, less orangey color, they will be sold as “shells” and not macaroni, the box will be shaped differently, and it will go for $2.50 or more.

The Whiskey Wash A friend of mine got a job at a prominent local distillery that makes an extremely popular flavored whisky. They literally buy whisky from a 3rd party distillery and dump torani flavoring syrup into it.
House Hunters” guest checking in, I never made the show because I didn’t close on the house.
1: I had to have a house under contract before going on the show.
2: They would select the other houses we were “interested” in.
3: I was assigned another SO who was more “interesting” than my actual SO.
Did some work on the trading floor at Goldman Sachs, I had access to all trading accounts and transactions. Came across some shady looking accounts which did not meet policy (it did not use clearly identifiable name and I could not find records of creation or testing for it etc…)
I asked my supervisor if I should look into this, he turned to me and said “we don’t ask about those accounts, just ignore them. Orders from the top”
Trading account creation is a long and detailed process that requires formal approval from multiple lines of management, these accounts circumvented all that and were basically anonymous with no trace, they were also trading high volume. and I was told to accept and Ignore them.
Vox Amazon made me sign one when I worked with a company that painted their airplanes before the public knew they had them. (I did the FAA paperwork.)
I was literally only one of like 7 people to see their airplane fully purple with their logo on it.
I was actually taken off of the project for a day because they thought I lied about not having a facebook.
They meant business.
I was an intern at Wells Fargo and we were grouped with other interns across the US and given a project to work on aside from our normal intern responsibilities. My group was tasked to look at their current incentive program and the one they were moving to and then come up with various ways they could be improved.
Two weeks before our presentation someone way above each of our managers had us shred all our work and sign NDAs. A couple years later the story broke about their incentive programs where employees were opening up fraudulent accounts for customers in order to gain more incentive rewards.
In 1990, I signed an NDA at Chili’s when they showed me how to make their new Awesome Blossom.
No other restaurant in town had anything like it and it was hugely popular at the time.
PlayTech Google doesn’t hire direct support employees, they open small projects in the US, hire up to 250 contract employees of varying support positions for the project. Once they get the stats needed to run everything efficiently, they have mass layoffs and outsource their jobs to a country (Philippines/India) that’s willing to accept much less than their US counterpart. At the same time Google rakes in a huge tax cut because they’re ‘creating’ jobs in the local communities.
I was actually an actor in that commercial that said I wasn’t.
