A few years ago metroPCS had, in my estimation, some of the worst advertising on TV, with ads that dealt in dreadful Pakistani stereotypes. This year, the company's ads caught my attention again, but this time in a very positive way because of their sexy, new spokesperson, actor/comedian Carlos Santos. His jaunty swagger combined with a cute wink and broad smile at the end of his sales pitch are pretty irresistible. Double click to see it here.
Santos joins a long line of appealing pitchmen from previous years:
- Actor Matt Walton for Optimum Voice:
- The duo from Liquid Plummer Double Impact:
- The Right Guard guy from a few years ago ("The Man Your Man Should Smell Like"):
- Finally, Lucky Vanous, who in 1994 was ogled by appreciative female office workers as he drank a can of diet Coke at a construction site.
With TV ads like these, why would anyone want to fast-forward through the commercials?
