Prompted by social media messaging from the First Take team just before April Fool’s Day, fans showed up at Times Square thinking that they were auditioning to be on the show. What they didn’t know was that Skip Bayless and Stephen A. Smith, the hosts of First Take, were also going to be in the studio. The results were a lot of fun moments captured with Skip and Stephen meeting some of their biggest fans. As Creative Director, I worked with the producers to create a unique “audition booth”, ensuring that fans would be genuinely surprised and the cameras would catch every second from multiple angles. This originally aired on April 1, 2013 and continues to live on YouTube.
