The Japan Guy Featured in a Domino’s Pizza Commercial!

Dumbfounded by the...pizza.

Ha ha ha…fooled ya! Well, sort of. I wasn’t in a TV commercial for Domino’s but I was in a Domino’s Pizza Web commercial. In this commerical, three friends are at the park talking, when this voluptuous woman (and I do mean voluptuous…sorry…but she was) comes walking by. In the commercial I’m talking on the phone with my Mom, and when I see the woman, my conversation completely stops. My two friends also stop talking as we watch the beautiful woman pass by. The camera zooms in on all of the woman’s generous curves, as we comment on what we’re seeing. “Unbelievable!” “Mama mia, delcious!” “So…BIG!” You later find out that we’re looking talking about the pizza 🙂

Fun! Fun! Fun! I just had a good time filming with these guys. I think the hardest part was actually looking at the pizza. The director had to tell us (i.e.-me) a couple of times to look at the pizza. We got it eventually.

Although it’s not a TV commercial right now, if it’s popular enough, they may make it a TV commercial as well (wink, wink, nudge, nudge). So if it’s not too much trouble, please check it out on You Tube, like it, tell your friends that you know the bald-headed guy in the commercial and get them to like it, too.

Yes, I know I’m not winning any Oscars for my performance, and with commercials I never can tell if/when the next one will be, but it really was a good time. Because Domino’s was in charge of the commercial, can you guess what we had for lunch? Yep, all the pizza we could gorge ourselves with! That alone was worth going for me.

Oh…right…you probably want to see the commercial, huh? Okay, here it is:

That reminds me…thank you for your encouraging comments a while back, when didn’t get that Sony commercial from before. It was cool to do something for a major brand this time. Things ended up working out in the end.

Talk to you soon,
