It has just come to our attention that our ex instructor Tom Torero hired an actress to make a fake infield video that he posted on our youtube channel.
Firstly I want to say that this post in response to the thread on this cafe that pointed to the initial evidence for what looked like Daygame.com hiring an actress for Tom's kiss close video on our youtube channel. In no way is this a "smear campaign" or me "out to get" Tom. I'm just posting what needs to be posted to clear Daygame.com's name of any wrong doing with the evidence I have uncovered from my own investigation.
I also want to point out that Tom Torero no longer works for Daygame.com, if he was still working for me now he would get fired immediately. This kind of thing is NOT tolerated at Daygame.com. Everything we do is LEGIT, if we say we're showing you a real life demonstration, that's exactly what you're getting.
So let's talking about the initial accusation that started all this, and then I'll go on to how I investigated to uncover the truth.
Someone on our forum posted a link to one of those "hater" websites that supposedly had evidence that "Daygame.com" had hired an actress to appear in an infield video.
We get haters saying that our videos are fake this all the time, so it's nothing new... but this time there was evidence... so I took a look. The post pointed to an actresses online resume. I'm not going to post a link here because it includes Tom's real surname, which even in light of this situation I'm not going to disclose. In the "COMMERCIALS" part it, it listed:
DAYGAME.COM de Tom <surname removed> R?le: Sarah.
DAYGAME.COM de <surname removed> R?le: Georgina.
So according to her resume Tom Torero hired her for two acting roles.
Ok... this does LOOK bad. Obviously I thought we must have hired her for an advice video or something.... but then I saw that the hate website was pointing to our Kiss Close video we had (it has since been taken down) on our youtube channel where Tom approaches and kisses a girl called Georgina.
I emailed Tom about this to get his side of the story.
He flat out denied it, saying the guy was obviously just some kind of troll.
So I searched for this actress girl on facebook and found her facebook page, so I contacted her and to try and get to the bottom of this, and she confirmed what I feared - that this is true, he had hired her to record a "kiss" video.
I then got her on Skype and got her to explain the entire thing to me, so it's all proven, I've got the recording of the conversation saved.
I am shocked and deeply disappointed. I honestly had no idea, and I'm upset that Tom would do something like this to potentially damage all of the amazing work me and the rest of the team have done over the last years making Daygame.com what it is.
Here is the evidence so everyone can see that I, and the entire Daygame.com team had nothing to do with this. Normally I wouldn't "throw someone to the lions" like this, especially someone I used to have a solid working relationship with. But me and Tom stopped working together a while ago for other reasons that led to the breakdown of our working and personal relationship (which I'm not going to get into here), but with people pointing the finger at me and Daygame.com I had no choice but to make this post to make sure that guys understand that this was an isolated incident instigated by Tom and Tom alone.
I don't like doing stuff like this... I prefer keeping everything positive and just focusing all my energy on creating amazing stuff to help people.
I'm really hoping we can move on from this in a positive way and put this behind us. Daygame is an amazing skill-set that can change lives, and if Daygame.com can help you on the journey then I'm honoured to be at your side.
