As regular Gizmodo readers may already know, I occasionally act in comedy sketches and the like. I also go out very rarely on commercial auditions (for a brief while in 09 I was in a Hot Pockets ad that ran, it seemed, almost exclusively on MTV2. You’ve seen it if you’re a Rob & Big fan).
And now you might see me in a non-speaking “Awkward White Guy” role in a Vizio commercial.
Why am I sharing this? Because I was typecast! But mostly to clarify that since that commercial was filmed, I haven’t written about Vizio or any other home theatre product at Gizmodo or elsewhere, and will continue not to. I also haven’t/won’t write about the company or any of its competitors on a corporate level (which would be boring anyway).
And finally, to make it known that my hair’s not normally like that.
