ASK FOR IT BY NAME - BIG BLACK CAR MEMBERS FOR N.Y. LOTTERY, AXE & MILKY WAY

Leave it to the New York Lottery to defy the odds that two members of the same improv team would book the same commercial. Enjoy Matt Oberg and Scott Eckert, members of Big Black Car, scuffling on a street corner. I doubt this commercial seemed funny on paper, but combine Oberg's scream-talking and Eckert's convulsions, and you've got something good. Fun fact: I heard the director liked Oberg's character so much that he taped him riffing for several minutes on the various "Van Helsing props" in the trunk of the car. Oberg points to a 24-pack of bottled water: "Check it out, got a shit-ton of holy water here. I know a youth pastor who hooks me up with a sweet deal."

Matt Oberg for Axe Body Spray

Double shot: Matt Oberg is versatile. Here he plays a convincing suit who's handling a bunch of a-hole reporters. PS - if you're not tuning in to Comedy Central's Ugly Americans to hear Oberg breathe life into everyman Mark Lilley, then you're doing yourself a disservice. And big ups to Axe's casting person: I spy with my little eye a bevy of New York actors like Anthony Devito and Rory Scovel. And I recognize others, but I don't know their names!

Nate Starkey for Milky Way

And to fulfill the Rule of Three, here is Nate Starkey, also a member of Big Black Car, dressed up like a 1950s robot. That loves candy. Does compute!
