I need to apologize that I’ve been so obsessed with my Ancestry Commercial–it must get pretty boring for most of you. It has been lots of fun, I’ve heard from friends I haven’t heard from in years and years. When they put my mug on their homepage (click here) and other pages (click here), well, it kind of exploded. As a result, I’m not so bored.
But I learned today that the end is nigh: Ancestry sent out an email to all its members, asking them to submit their stories to possibly be made into a commercial.
So I guess this star is starting to collapse on itself, soon to be sucked back into the black hole of obscurity. It’ll probably take them a month or two to have the new commercials ready, so I’m still going to enjoy my little piece of fame while I can.
But this is good news for you, you might have your moment to shine–why not submit your own Ancestry story? Tell them the guy in the Lederhosen sent you.
PS – click here and give my commercial a few thumbs up now and again, maybe they will keep it running!
PSS – any idea how I can send this out to casting agents or casting directors? I would love to parley this into something more, but don’t really know anyone or how to go about it. I do need a retirement career.
PSSS – or maybe I’ll be come a Genealogist?
