H&R Blockhead: Actor Blabs to Press About Super Bowl Spot

brand.gifA little bird told us that an actor in the H&R Block commercials was taking interviews announcing that the spot he was in was going to air during the Super Bowl – arguably ‘The Louvre’ of television commercials…if the Louvre was annual and aimed at selling swollen people more stuff to swill.

Anyway, the actor announces he’s going to be in said spot. Agency calls his agent, tells him to tell him to shut up. All press mentioning the spots mysteriously don’t cite actor guy at all.

Lid back on – tight.

Then after all this – a different H&R Block commercial will air during the Super Bowl. The one sans actor guy.

Oops.

There’s a moral in this story…somewhere.
