15 Seconds of Fame…

…and here is the 15 second version of the commercial–this one has a picture of my Dad, his parents and grandfather.

For the 30 second version, which I posted yesterday, click here: 30 second version

If you view the 30 second, please give it a thumbs up (Spot on).  I’m not sure what that does, but it couldn’t hurt.  And to the person who gave it thumbs down: My mother said she is going to kick your butt when she finds out who you are.  I’m not kidding.  She is.  Jerk.  She’s a retired NYC school teacher and is afraid of no one. You messed with the wrong woman’s son.

At one point they asked for pictures of my parents, aunts, and uncles, but they didn’t use them.  Which is a shame, I wanted everyone to be part of this.  Sorry everyone, and thanks for your help.  Here is a snapshot of our tree–although I still have a lot to fill in.  Love you all.

This has been great fun.  They seem to be running it on cable, SyFy, AMC, CNN, WGN.

Finally…My Commercial!

Me on my set--long shot
Me on my set–long shot


My commercial started airing last night.  I’ve asked them to give me a schedule of when it will air, but I doubt they will.

You can see it by clicking here.

Please give it the thumbs up, and have everyone you ever met in your life do the same.  Daily.  Is that asking too much?

If you see it on television, please let me know!
