Okay, I can’t reveal too much but I have been given clearance to tell y’all that I spent two days filming for a TV show. I can’t mention the name of the show or the channel until later but I can talk a little bit about what happened.
Even though I probably should have had the stage to myself, Melly, Sheldon and Coral will also be in my segment of the show. I don’t know why, they are not capybaras. Coral is pretty cute, Sheldon substantially less so and Melly, well, let’s not get into that. I don’t think I should have to share my spotlight with the non-cute. Or maybe it sets me off better?
The film crew did some weird things. One example is that they made these six Super Capys form a pyramid. That isn’t their superpower! Maybe if they’d made the pyramid lying on their backs in mid-roll, that would have been something. But this? This just doesn’t make any sense.
I had two full days of people and cameras following me everywhere! Sure they took video of me walking around the yard, swimming in my pool and in the creek, going for a walk in the neighborhood and innocent stuff like that. But, and you’re not going to believe this, they also took video of me “using my water bowl,” if you know what I mean! Does the whole world have to know about my toilet habits?
Whenever I wanted some peace and quiet, I found my way out to my pool. Humans don’t go in pools when the water is cold so that took some of the pressure off. But even though they won’t go in themselves, humans will send their pesky cameras in, as I know all too well.
They had a really good underwater camera to capture my graceful, efficient and elegant water acrobatics. I hope they make the whole show out of those! But I don’t suppose they will.
In fact, Melly says we may all come out looking pretty bad. There was a bit of a struggle getting my harness on. When I say “bit,” I mean as in I bit someone. Melly. But not hard, just a little nip. And then they had to give up on harnessing me. I hope they don’t show that part.
Of all of us, Coral may come out looking the worst. They told us to just act like ourselves but Melly said they meant to act like the people we want to be and not like who we actually are. Unfortunately, Coral seemed to have missed that. You know what they say, the camera adds 10 crazy points to your personality and, well, Coral got them.
I may write another blog post about this later, if Sheldon ever brings me his photos. And I will absolutely keep you informed when I know more about when the show will air. Sign up for blog messages (right side bar) so I can keep you informed.
