Buddy Lee Offers Career Advice in MTV2 Tie-In

Published on .

Buddy Lee "Guidance Counselor"
Lee Jeans spokesdoll Buddy Lee plays the role of guidance counselor in a new series of branded entertainment films tied to the MTV2 program Control Freak. Created by Fallon/Minneapolis, the series takes advantage of the show's format -- which lets viewers pick what video comes on next -- by letting viewers decide which career path Lee's young charge should choose. The initial episode aired on Oct. 31. The next two episodes, which will show the student pursuing the career selected for him, will air on Nov. 14 and Nov. 28.

In the first episode, directed by Jon Nowak of St. Paul's Uncle Forehead Filmworks, we see Buddy reflect on his own past careers before viewers are asked to decide whether our young student should become a trapeze artist, a soap opera actor or a ventriloquist.
