It’s always strange to me when an actor shows up in multiple major commercials at the same time. Currently there’s a tall, skinny guy with a prominent Adam’s Apple who is appearing in three ads that I see constantly. Some motor oil ad where he is dreaming that he’s in a drag race, a Cricket cell phone ad, and one of the My Way eBay spots.
How does it happen that someone’s unique face just clicks with multiple advertising executives at the same time?
Update: Because of the response to this post (2 years later and still getting comments) I’ve created AdActors.com. It’s a bulletin board, so it should be more conducive than a comments section to this kind of dialogue. Please check it out and let me know what you think.
