As we've established here on the old blog, I watch a lot of TV. And TV involves commercials. So by default I watch a lot of commercials.

I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with commercials. When they are done well, WOW! When they suck, even bigger WOW!

I talk back to commercials, I have commercials that drive me up the wall (hello, Glade candles, I'm talkin' to you!) and I also have commercials that make me sing along.

My favorites are the freecreditreport.com commercials. How catchy are these things? I sing them all the time (well, I married my dream girl, I married my dream girl--c'mon, you know you want to join in.)

Anyhoo, I love the commercials so much I actually looked up the guy who's in all of them. His name is Eric Violette and he is a French-Canadian actor who speaks...


That's right, he's lip-syncing in the commercials. That bit of info made me quite sad. I just knew he and the other guys in the commercial were an actual band and wrote all of these little ditties themselves.

Sadly, no. But that does not dampen my enjoyment in these commercials. So now for YOUR enjoyment I present the freecreditreport.com commercials. Feel free to sing along.

One slight disclaimer about these commercials--in researching the actor I did find several not-so-pleasant reviews on the actual company. So enjoy the commercials, but don't actually use freecreditreport.com!

That explains SO much...My husband, being a musician HATES those guys because their lip-syncing is so bad! So now I can tell him WHY!

I have to admit that while I find the tunes catchy and the commercials cute, as an actor I was bothered that they brought in someone who couldn't fulfill the whole role. Seriously, there aren't any goofy-cute boys out there who could have actually sung this?

Having said that though, I do get very excited when a new one airs! :)

I think the Free Credit Report guy is so cute! Awhile back, I did find out he is French Canadian and lip synching, but it did not dampen my enthusiasm for his cuteness. My husband finds the commercials annoying.
