Glee’s Harry Shum Jr. starred in iPod ad

Harry Shum Jr. has revealed that he starred in one of the first iPod advert.

The Glee actor revealed the news following the announcement of the death of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.

“I was asked to do a test commercial shoot for an Apple product which didn’t mean much to me at the time,” he posted to Tumblr. “Some music player that holds all your songs. Sounded cool to me and I never gave up an opportunity to work especially with the possibility of it turning into a national commercial. Coolest job I did in that time. Just for the fact that I was chosen for my dancing and just my dancing alone. It was a silhouette of me so looks and race didn’t play into it unlike most of the jobs I would audition for. That job is where I essentially got comfortable freestyling in front of people let alone an intimidating 70 pound camera. I would do hundreds of takes with scrapes and bruises on my knees forming by the minute. Even then I always had the energy to go ‘one more time’ because I just felt that I was part of something innovative.”
