NBC Stars In Commercials

In Chuck, Commercials, Heroes, NBC on 04/28/2009 at 2:44 am

Being a DVR addict, I rarely see commercials…Usually just when I’m in the midst of doing something with the TV on in the background, not really paying attention, or when watching something on the DVR and not being able to find the remote come fast forward time.

For the last two weeks I had been seeing the Greg Grunberg (Matt Parkman) Insight commercial during Heroes and then today I just happened to catch it during a rerun that was playing while writing a previous post. This evening while watching Law & OrderGossip Girl on the DVR I was scrambling to find the remote and wait…is that Hayden Panettiere on this cell phone commercial?

Youtube…search…Hayden…how the hell do you spell that?…Panettiere…at&t…It is!

And then there was the related video, another Insight commercial featuring Chuck‘s Zachary Levi. Huh. NBC stars are really getting out there. I wonder, though, if this is all just coincidence or if NBC is making deals for it’s actors. The fact that both Greg Grunberg and Zachary Levi are in commercials for the same car, in the same ad campaign, makes me think so. But where does the phone commercial fit in and why haven’t I caught it on NBC yet?

Update:5/05/09 Just caught a new Neutrogena Deep Clean Cream Cleanser starring Hayden Panettiere. She’s actually been a spokesperson for a while now, but this is the first new one in quite some time. Funny, too, is that it aired during Gossip Girl, the same show her cell phone ad ran on.
