I wish they'd got Matthew Perry to play Bing.

Nice going, College Humor. You got all those terrier lovers put on a list.

DuckDuckGo shouldv'e had a cameo --

PERSON WEARING HARDHAT enters office, carrying a metal detector

PERSON WEARING HARDHAT: Blackbeard-Treasure-Cape-Hatteras.

THE CLERK sits behind desk, mouth agape.

A thin trickle of drool pours out of THE CLERK'S mouth, landing upon the desk.

PERSON WEARING HARDHAT winces in horror, but quickly becomes furious.


PERSON WEARING HARDHAT: You always do this when I'm on my phone!

He should have worn a headset like Google-tan.

But they got Chung!

I have to wonder what it's like for an actor to get to play a state governor on Veep and still have to turn around and be Guy #2 In Bar in a commercial the next day.

psoas, good question. A couple of things could've happened. The commercial shoot may've happened around the same time and not run for a while, or it could've been flighted regionally for a while etc. The other thing is, while getting a spot on Veep is awesome, it's not a 'you have arrived' moment quite yet, so you're not going to turn down anything that promises decent pay and/or exposure.

IOW, what it's like is, "holy shit I'm getting paying gigs!"

Totally unrealistic. The old guy behind the desk didn't spend nearly enough time pestering people to join OldGuyBehindADesk+.

If it's a national commercial than it probably feels just fine. If the commercial played over the course of many months and on a variety of media he got paid several thousands of dollars and had money contributed to his union healthcare and pension.

Bing's cameo should have been ten seconds longer:

WOMAN IN BUSINESS SUIT sits down in Bing's office

WOMAN IN BUSINESS SUIT: Funny kitty pictures.

BING: I got that one!

BING charges around desk, out of office, shoves into the front of the queue for GOOGLE'S desk, drops his ass in the chair.

BING excitedly: Funny kitty pictures!

GOOGLE: C'mon, man. I already reported you for doing this shit.

Brian Huskey is SO. DAMNED. FUNNY. He could make a minivan commercial brilliant (and he did).

Hilarious. And that NSA guy. Hahahahaha!

Poor Bing.

OMG, GEORGE! George Basil is the guy with a beard who smokes a cigar; I had, like, 3 improv classes with him, I think one of them was with TJ and Dave teaching us! He's really good! He's also in the first one asking for "bitcoin market value". Seriously, he was like, the Michael Palin of the improv school I went to, nicest guy in the world and insanely talented.

Office worker: [search request]
Bing: Here you go.
Office worker: Oh fucking christ. Google dot com.

...

Google: here you go.
Office worker: how to change IE default search engine.

It's finally happened.

People I look at and think 'that dude's about my age!' are called old guys.
