I've got GMA on in the morning and Seinfeld and Friends in the evening. I watch the Daily Show and Colbert Report, The Office and 30 Rock, Mad Men and Friday Night Lights. Occasional reality shows like Project Runway and Amazing Race. A football game or two.
And yet the bank commercial continues to elude me. I know it's out there. Just last night I walked into rehearsal and the artistic director said, "Hey, I saw you on TV last night!" Not an hour later, a girl in the cast, whom I've worked with before, got a text from her mother: "I just saw Rob in a commercial!" I got home and had an e-mail from an old friend, "I just saw you on TV!"
People who barely know me, or have just met me once or twice through other people are spotting me in this ad.
This is why I need Tivo.
