Taika Waititi Reveals Donald Trump’s “List of Demands” in 2012 When They Filmed a Commercial Together

Taika Waititi took a trip down memory lane, reminiscing about the wild ride of working with the one and only Donald Trump. Picture it: 2012, Taika, the maestro behind the curtain, orchestrated NBC’s “Brotherhood of Man” commercial for the Super Bowl extravaganza.

In this star-studded spectacle, you had the gangs from 30 Rock, The Office, Parks & Rec, Community, and Saturday Night Live belting out “Brotherhood of Man” from the ancient scrolls of the 1961 musical, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. And in a plot twist even Shakespeare couldn’t concoct, Trump, the Apprentice-in-chief at the time, made a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it appearance.

Fast forward to a recent episode of the SmartLess podcast, where Taika spilled the tea with hosts Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, and Sean Hayes. According to Taika, working with Trump was like directing a diva in a low-budget reality show. The man had a “list of demands” longer than the Great Wall of China.

Apparently, Trump had some serious camera concerns. The height had to be just right to give him that svelte silhouette, making him look like the Supermodel-in-Chief. And let’s not forget the Pantone drama—his orange hue had to be meticulously matched to whatever shade was trending in the Oompa Loompa fashion circles.

But the real pièce de résistance was Trump’s personal makeup magician-slash-ego-boosting guru. This beauty wizard would sprinkle fairy dust on him, all the while whispering, “Oh, Mr. Trump, you’re positively glowing, Mr. Trump.”

And then, in the blink of an eye—no, literally, just one second—Trump graced the commercial with his presence. He pointed dramatically at the camera and uttered the profound words, “You.” Shakespeare would be proud.
