He’s back

We are living in the age of the TV spokesperson.

Flo for Progressive. That perky AT&T gal at the mall.  The mayhem guy for Allstate. And they all owe their careers and pricey exclusive contracts to this guy:


He made Verizon’s slogan ‘Can you hear me now?’ ubiquitous and annoying.

Then he disappeared.



He’s back.

I guess his no-compete clause finally expired.


I didn’t watch the series 24 starring Kiefer Sutherland.

I know it was great.  Perhaps one day I will.

But right now, I feel like I’m living it…because I can’t go 24 hours without running into Kiefer Sutherland.

He’s the voice of calm on the current Bank of America television campaign. (They need one.)  He’s the spokesperson for Apple Intel, his raspy voice the perfect complement to their space age-y spots.  He’s also the voice of Nissan and Verizon — and that’s just in the United States.

In Canada, his dulcet tones sell Ford Fusion.  In Brazil, it’s Peugeot.

I know he has a new series on television called Touch, and a 24 feature film in the works.  But seriously Kiefer, why bother?

You already RULE THE WORLD.
