Oh my goodness, I had to be sure you are not missing out on this funny commercial that seems to be the latest sensation. When I was a teen one of the careers I was interested in was advertising so I always appreciate clever ads. Yes, they did have TV in those days.
Although we first saw this while watching American Idol this week, I understand that it was first shown during the Superbowl. That "look at your man, now back to me, now back to your man, now back to me!" is genius funny and I mentally congratulated the writers. And come on, I did what he told me to do (looked pointedly at my man) and Leonard laughed--although maybe he was crying inside. *LOOOOOL*
While on Twitter yesterday,I saw someone tweet about it and I thought, "Gee, so we're not the only ones to appreciate that commercial!" Well I found people talking about it all over the internet and there was even an LA Times online interview of Isaiah Mustafa, the actor in the commercial. The Tech Guy, Leo Laporte, who has a syndicated radio and internet show, interviewed the creative team, Craig Allen and Eric Kallman,about how the commercial was filmed. In this day and age of digital graphics, I think you'll be surprised.
Today Ellen showed the commercial in her "Funny Commercial" segment and after screening it, said she'd like to have Isaiah on her show. [At the end of her show she announced that they called him and he'll be on the show next week---cool!]
And as Ellen says: "You're welcome!"
