Ask For It By Name: Zach Woods for Starburst

I remember lunchroom arguments about which was better: Starburst or Mamba. The answer: Neither -- they're both good. Just like this ad featuring an Asian Scotsman and a zombie-fied Zach Woods (The Stepfathers, The Office). Hm. I just watched this ad again. I take it back. Starburst is better. If only because they pick ad agencies that know how to stretch concepts, but not just for the sake of stretching. Cases in point, these two separate ads featuring area comedians Matt Oberg and Rick Younger and Kristen Schaal from a while back.

No problem, Rick!! Hey I was watching your acting reel, and I just realized that you are the guy John Mulaney references when he's talking about that scene in Law & Order when they're interviewing the guy who won't stop loading boxes!!! Fabulous!!!
