How Many Super Bowl Commercials Was Your Brother In?...

Mine was in two.

For many years, my brother has done PA work on commercials. He recently started doing extra work which pays a little bit better. He never knows for how long he'll appear (usually it's only a split second or so), but he tells us what to watch for just in case.

The first one he was in was the Pepsi/Bob Dylan commercial. You can see him here:


Here's the video if you want to watch it:


The other one was for GoDaddy.com (whatever the hell that is). Here he is again:




Normally I loathe commercials, especially Super Bowl commercials and their accompanying hype, but when you have a family member to look for it makes it a little more tolerable.

My brother was in a William Hurt movie once, and we've watched it frequently just to see him walk across the street and through a train station. We're easily amused.

That 2nd commercial? THAT made it on but the PETA ad didn't?

This might be asking too much but would you mind asking your brother to wear a "Google this: THAT BLUE YAK" t-shirt in his next commercial?

Thanks. Just post it once you have the video.

I appear in a lot of exercise videos that are commercials. I specialize in "before" pictures...

I really liked that Pepsi commercial actually. One of the few commercials last night that made any impression on me at all.

I was shameless manipulated and missed him entirely in the Go Daddy ad and again the still you posted. You need to post an iso-still of him.

If I had a brother, which I don't, I am quite sure he would have been front and center in every commercial, just to prove to Mom that she was right in liking him best.

Oh boy! I haven't had a brush with greatness for years! That's really cool, Some Guy!

Too cool! My brother's best friend was in the movie Ten Things I Hate About You. He had one line. He had to shake his head and say "uh-uh". In the credits he is listed as The Laughing Idiot or something like that. But we love him anyway! :-)

I would have to say that your brother was the best part of that second one. :D

Good for him! I hope he gets more time on the air soon!

Wow! your brother is a celebrity! Kinda.

I liked the Mr. Potato Head commercial and Astronaut commercial (both for Bridgestone tires).

The Super Bowl is the only time I even watch commercials so obviously, your brother is smart.

Grant Miller said...

Awesome. Your brother is a star!

I only watched the second one because of the red-head.
