Everyone's doing the green thing these days, even the
The Ellen Show. For her great green episode, I got to join 15 other spinners from Revolution pedaling stationary bikes rigged to power generators, as a background scene. Fun, and a crazy coincidence, as I've been chatting with Revolution about doing something similar.....
Original idea was to have us power the TV, but didn't quite turn out that way - either technical problems or lack of planning.....too bad, but it was still fun, a trip for this non-TV watcher to see the behind the scenes.
The show featured Cameron Diaz, who reminded us to turn off the water when brushing our teeth (cutting edge, ahem) and Simran Sethi from Treehugger TV and The Green. Who was wonderful as always.
Heres the whole lot of us, sharing our brief Hollywood moment.
And now....lets rig those bikes up and put those wasted spinning calories to good use!
