Commercial Credits

I always wondered why commercials didn't have credits for the actors in them.

Sometimes, I think they should.

For the actors, no one else. Just the actors. But there should be credits in the commercials.

How else will I know who's advertising whatever to me. Right? Oh, sure "Credits would ruin the point of the COMMERCIAL if you were reading the CREDITS of the people trying to sell you Banking Services or Sneakers, and you paid attention to the credits more than the product..."

Well. I still want them.

You ever heard the story of how Patrick Stewart got the role of Captain Pickard?

(legend has it) roddenberry just couldn't find the right person to be his Captain for the proposed new series. Then one night he heard this tremendous voice extolling the virtues of the redesigned Pontiac GranPrix. He decided that was the voice of his new swashbuckling captain and sent his crew out to find the man behind the voice. Of course when they find him he's this 5'6" guy who is anything BUT Captain Kirk, but he decided to try it anyway and added the manly first officer to go with him.

I'm so glad he did. Patrick Stewart is sexy right up there with Sean Connery.

You are insane! Commercials are already annoying enough. If they had credits, it would make them longer and even more annyoing while I'm trying to find out what is gonna happen with Summer and Seth.

There's gotta be a website that has credits from commercials or something. Ya know what? Since I love you so, I'm gonna do a little investigative reporting and find out from my friends who are union commercial actors. Will you be happy then? Mini-van happy?
