    Chris Berman on a commercial for CarShield, an extended warranty program. Not especially grating just, you know, Berman.

    People like him in ads like these -- such as Tom Selleck for reverse mortgages -- make me wonder if they really need money or if they were offered a buttload of cash.

    Maybe they pay Berman in leather and Selleck in mustache wax.

    A buddy of mine oversees marketing for a brand you may be quite familiar with if you are unhealthy and over the age of 60. Their marketing is almost exclusively direct-response (think infomercial) on TV, web and email.
    Anyway, he signed a celebrity with equal or maybe more star power than Selleck and Berman and he paid him a handsome flat fee for a few days of filming but the guy also gets about $10 an order, from any marketing channel. And their daily orders are equal to a mid-size country’s gdp. So much so that the celeb told my buddy he’s making more money now than on any of his previous major shows/movies.

    If I ever get the chance to meet Lily from the AT&T commercial, I'm going to take her coffee mug, brain her with it, then smash it into pieces on the floor.

    Slow down, Chef. Real life Lily is quite fetching

    I have a question for the group. Am I the only one a little weirded out by the kid in the Sonic commercial bragging they he's known as the "chug master" at school because he's such a good chugger?
