In response to Brad Pitt’s much buzzed about video for Chanel No 5, Meetinghouse Productions, the folks who produce “World’s Dumbest”, a hit show on truTV, have come up with their own sweet-smelling Chanel No 5 video parody starring Meetinghouse talent, actor/singer/icon Leif Garrett.

About Jason Cilo:
After graduating from Hampshire College, Jason watched a lot of Rockford Files and Columbo reruns, rented movies on VHS, and read Variety while working as a paralegal at a law firm and for a non-profit in his hometown of New Haven, CT. He got his first big break when Jonathan Hayes got him a job as a PA on CBS’ syndicated live daily Day & Date. In 1997, he became an AP at MSNBC, and worked on The Big Show With Keith Olbermann. He left MSNBC to write, produce, and direct a documentary about Bobby Darin for PBS. He then got a second big break when Hilary Spiegelman freed him from the tyranny of acronym-based gigs and hired him as a producer at Video Hits One, but when it became “VH1”, Jason gave in and went on a multi-year jag as a W, P, SP and EP for VH1 and for MTV, HGTV, A&E, PBS, GM, and CBS. In 2007, Anthony Horn, an executive at then Court TV, agreed to allow him to produce a new show called Disorder In The Court as a production company instead of as a freelance producer. Meetinghouse Productions started as a three-person enterprise and quickly blossomed into a production and development entity that employs more than 50 people in NY and LA.
