State Farm’s “Never” Commercial

It’s a pretty cute commercial made by DDB Chicago. The man keeps saying he’ll never do different things…like get married, have kids, move to the suburbs, buy a minivan, and have another kid. Of course, he ends up doing all those things. Finally, he’s with his wife and kids and says “I’ll never let go.” If you’re a cynical type, you might say that he will let go, since he did all the “never” events. That would really put a dark twist on it, although I don’t see the commercial that way. It’s a nice message that life doesn’t always turn out according to plan, because people develop and plans change. I’m not sure who the actor playing the man is, but the wife is Arielle Vandenberg.

Characters In Horror Movies Make Poor Decisions, Says Geico

Have you ever watched a horror movie and yelled at the screen because the characters are doing things that will clearly lead to their gruesome deaths? If so, you’ll probably relate to this amusing new Geico ad. The blonde woman is played by Carrie Wiita, and the brunette is Cali Fredrichs. Thanks to Who is that hot ad girl? for the linkage. As for the actors, the guy who suggests hiding behind the chainsaws is Creagen Dow, the one who advocates the attic is Aaron Jennings, and the chainsaw killer is played by David Figlioli.

Who Is AT&T’s Lily?

The commercials featuring AT&T’s attractive saleslady Lily have been running for a few months now. Lily is played by Milana Vayntrub.

The Wendy’s Redhead Cutie Enjoys The Bacon Portabella Melt

Everyone’s favorite fast food slinging spokeswoman, Morgan Smith Goodwin, is back in yet another Wendy’s commercial. I’m a fan of Wendy’s, but definitely not of mushrooms, so I think I’ll skip the Bacon Portabella Melt. Here’s a review from GrubGrade.

That Head & Shoulders Commercial With Joe Mauer And A Hot Female Fan

I’ve seen this Head & Shoulders commercial starring Minnesota Twins catcher/designated hitter/first baseman Joe Mauer many times over the last few months. And I always wondered the identity of the pretty fan that Joe talked to while waiting for a presumably very high pop-up. Well, now I know.  It’s Tracy Weiler. Mystery solved!

Fun With Captain Morgan Black In 1661

Captain Morgan had one of my favorite commercials last year. This is another great one for Captain Morgan Black. So stylish and cool music. Taking a secret passage away from the formal ball to a place decidedly less formal adds such a nice devious element. I guess I’m just a fan of liquor ads featuring partying in years past. The song is Hanni El Khatib’s “You Rascal You” and the beautiful girl is Gal Gadot.

The Wendy’s Spicy Chicken Redhead Cutie

A lot of searches to my blog come down to a question. The most common ones concern the identities of actors/actresses, and the names of commercial songs. So here’s a question answered. The cute redhead in this Wendy’s Spicy Guacamole Chicken Club commercial is Morgan Smith Goodwin (NOT Megan, as I originally wrote). Props to “Who is that hot ad girl?” as always. Guacamole on a fast food sandwich? That’s at least a little more original. Take note, Burger King.
