  1. Before they were Famous Celebrity Commercials is totally freaking awesome! I say that, because they must have been concentrating on the 1980s. Which explains why they didn’t have the Subway commercial for the man “raised by wolves” – Jim Parsons. I kid you not, look it up. They also missed Seth Green in the “cha-ching” commercial, although that might have been just a regional thing as well. I forget the franchise. Rally’s? It was also a fast food spot. Both of those were in the 1990s. I think the “raise by wolves” was even a Super Bowl spot.

    McDonalds and BK had an eye for talent. At least their Ad agencies did. That was a lot of people who went on to bigger things.
