One of awards season’s premier events, the SAG Awards annually celebrates the outstanding motion picture and television performances from the previous calendar year (SAG Awards Eligibility Period: January 1, 2023 - December 31, 2023). Of the top industry honors presented to actors, only the SAG Awards are selected entirely by performers’ peers in SAG-AFTRA with 119,515 eligible voters. Final voting opens on Wednesday, Jan. 17 and closes at Noon PT on Friday, Feb. 23. We're still in the throe's of watching, scoring and entering our votes from the digital motion picture movie streamers we obtained, as well as DVD's that are continuing to trickle in.
So, here we are smack in the middle of awards season and wouldn't you know it, there's this thing called the Superbowl that's sharing the spot-light. That's mostly due to the Superbowl's date being pushed further and further ahead to where it's current play date is pushing double digits on the eleventh of February. That's a far cry from where it came from back in 1967. Well, actually the Superbowl wasn't called the Superbowl until its 3rd time out, Soup III January 12th, 1969. Soup I and II were called an entirely different name entirely...AFL–NFL World Championship Game.
That being said, perhaps it's time to take a look back to a date and time when we had a VoiceOver & On-Camera horse in the game...or dog in the race, as it were. That's right, the year's starting off a bit slow, so time to bring out the Greatest Hits album...well, almost Greatest Hits and it'll probably be featured on a Sound Cloud platform or thumbnail drive.
We had a horse-in-the-game in both millennia. Humongous Gas & Electric TV spot that played on Superbowl XXIV back on January 28th, 1990. It was Super recognizable...once upon a time. I played an 'on camera' character named: Bob Davis. Incidentally, it was the most lopsided game in Superbowl history. San Fran's 55 points were the most ever scored by one team. And their 45 point margin of victory over the Broncos was the largest ever!
Fantastic Plastic's TV spots or end tags, played on Superbowl LIV, February 2nd, 2020. The VoiceOver was for the Damson Auto Dealerships in the lower half of the country. We managed a Winnie-the-Pooh sound-a-like that was in good form. Here's the full Jerry Damson Automotive Grp spot that started its run a few months earlier.
Through a life changing circumstance that happened recently, I found that my mom had married a fellow who also had a horse in the Superbowl game...he bought a saddle, actually. As a matter of record, he created the greatest ad of its era which debuted on: Superbowl XIII: It featured overtones of hard times that needed a bit of bolstering to accent the positive. Of course... it helped if you consumed a bottle of Budweiser.

My step dad was an advertising guru. The real deal of what was to be called a - Mad Man. A creative directors creative director. Ever hear the slogan; Leggo My Eggo, Coke is It or how 'bout my mom's all time Fav - Fly the Friendly Skies of United?
That's the voice of a tinder Gene Hackman, in the day, paying tribute to the inspirational words that instilled a campaign at Leo B. Yep, as someone in advertising for a good deal of their life, I'd say my step dad was metzuyan. Be nice if it runs in the family. BTW, I woulda been happy if mom had married Bob Bigalow (BA)...you know, Deuce Bigalow's father - bathroom attendant.
