If you’ve been watching the local cable TV, you may have noticed there’s a new superstar on the small screen: me!
Yes, if you’ve always wanted to see me in full action, hanging out in one of the company vans and showing up on a service call, you can catch me in our new Russell & Abbott television spots that started airing last month. I had a great time shooting this, especially where I get to ring the front doorbell. I insisted on at least four takes in order to get this shot just right.
Don’t worry, I won’t let this stardom go to my head. I donated my acting wages to a local animal shelter. We also had a stand-in dog working with me who was a rescue from Labrador Retriever. However, I think there’s potential in a CSI-style show where I play a HVAC dog detective who helps find out what’s wrong with the cooling or heating in a house. We could call it Hot Summer—Cool Dog, or … you know what, I’ll get back to you on that.
