So I bopped over the the Ad Council YouTube site to try to watch an unrelated video and the first one up was Craig Rowin as an abusive cell phone.
It's just weird. There was a time in my life I would mock actors in commercials. Well not mock them, but feel patronizing sympathy. "Wow. I would hate to be THAT actor." Now my response is "Hey! I'm so glad so-and-so is working. They deserve it because they're awesome!"
