Belopo Interview│In August I did a live interview with the owner of a baby furniture company called Belopo. In a previous post, I briefly mentioned this. It was that same post where we showed you pictures of a modeling job that Eli and I did for this company. Check those pictures out HERE. Despite my efforts, I was not able to get the video footage from this interview because it was a live show. It was streaming via one of China’s biggest online shopping networks. Needless to say, I was quite shocked when they told me how many people were watching the show! Eeeekkk! Elijah played in the same room, while we discussed the differences between Western and Chinese parenting. Everything went perfectly, and I actually really enjoying being able to take part in this opportunity.
Callers sent in questions, which I answered in English, while Elma translated for the viewers. When given the chance to guess my nationality and win a prize, it was only after about 30 countries (and a few hints) that someone finally got it right! It was an interesting chat and we sure did laugh a lot. Elijah started playing with the tripod while we were filming. No one seemed to be taking notice of him, but I didn’t want to jump towards the camera, so I sat still watching him out the corner of my eye. I tried so hard not to make my eyes HUGE but I could tell he was definitely going to knock the entire thing over. Since I was “on center stage” I had to just sit there and pretend like I didn’t see him. Inside I was cringing!!
Just as I suspected it would, the tripod fell over, and I launched towards it to catch the camera. I bet that was entertaining to watch!
In true Chinese fashion, no one cared and things went on like nothing had happened. hahahaha, so funny!
Since the interview was streaming live, I was not able to get any of the footage to show all of you. Elma did send me a few screen shots though, so these images above are the best that I can do! You can read more about this company, and our experiences with them, in these posts:
Elijah’s First Job (2014) – When he was 6 months old, Eli did his first modeling job. It was with this company.
Belopo Boy – Two years later, Eli and I modeled for this company once again.
The Face of Belopo – Finding out that for the last two years, Elijah’s face has been all over Belopo’s catalogs and products!
