Ask For It By Name: Chris Grace for Capital One

The way I see it, "Ask For It By Name" serves two purposes: To encourage the hiring of Comedy People We Love and to shine a light on them because they're hilarious. Chris Grace is definitely a CPWL. His weekly output on the improv stage, as well as the Information Superhighway, is inspiring. A few months ago he spoke at length about the creation of this commercial, offering valuable insight and wisdom into the Actor's World. Keep up the great work, Chris!

Ask For It By Name: Billy Keenly and Jeff Hiller for

Attn: Microsoft directors of marketing. This commercial could be so much better. Yes, it's awesome in its scale, and we can only imagine the magnitude of the crane shots that were involved. But your editors clearly saw something special to keep that 6-second stretch of glassy-eyed Billy Keenly (Serious Lunch) staring off into the distance while Jeff Hiller (The Scam) speak-sings Eddie Money into the PA system. Yes! We want a commercial dedicated to those two! In fact, we're willing to Google -- er, "Bing" it -- to find it.
