I'm very excited, because I've had one of my songs placed in a major motion picture! Well, the placement actually happened quite awhile ago, but the movie has been released, and I was able to watch it and hear my tune. You know how, at the end of certain movies, there are brief epilogues
that tell you what happened to the characters after the end of the
movie? That's when my song "A Moment Away (Patiently Waiting)" plays! The movie is called Wieners, and stars Kenan Thompson and Darrell Hammond of Saturday Night Live, as well as Kyle Gass of Tenacious D, and Jenny McCarthy. Rotten Tomatoes sums up the plot as follows:
Kenan Thompson stars as Wyatt, a man with a home-made wiener wagon that comes in handy when he and Ben (Zachary Levi of television's CHUCK) decide the only thing that will cheer up their depressed friend Joel (Fran Kranz, THE TV SET) after being humiliated on Dr. Dwayne's talk show is to take Joel on a cross-country drive and give that pompous windbag the beating of his life. Wyatt kills two birds with one stone, handing free hot dogs out to the public along the way in hopes that the stunt will land him his dream job at Oscar Meyer. Throughout their journey the three dudes encounter a cross section of freaks, weirdos, and losers. Saturday Night Live's Darrell Hammond co-stars as Dr. Dwayne, along with Jenny McCarthy, comedian Andy Milonakis, and Joel Moore (GRANDMA'S BOY).
Sounds great, hey? :)
If you get a chance to check it out, drop me a line and let me know what you thought of the movie. Whatever you thought, tell all your friends that it's a great movie, and they should watch it, and then go out and buy both of my albums! And below is a link so you can hear the song if you wish. It's called "A Moment Away", but for the purposes of the placement the title was changed to "Patiently Waiting". It's something my publisher Crucial Music ( thanks for the placement!) does, and if anyone wants to know why, send me an email and I'll explain. It was super cool to see my song in the credits, "performed by Freddy"! In the future, I'll post this info on my website, but I'm excited, and I wanted to get the word out right away!
