Strange Commercial Sighting... Dom Look-Alike?
Has anybody else seen the recent TGIF commercial with the two guys at their table debating what to eat, but not having a lot of money on them? So the waitress tells them about the great deals they have and their minds go wild - imagining lots of food, women joining their table, partying - and, in the longer version only, a guy who looks like he's supposed to look like Dominic Monaghan also shows up, in shades, poses with the girls, gets his photo taken - and then it's back to the two guys, giving their order.

The funny thing is, it was the fact that this guy seems to show up in the wishful imaginings of two guys (I mean, sure they wish for a fun party with girls at their table, but for another, better-looking guy to join them? Where did THAT come from?) that first caught my attention. And then I thought - why? Oh, well, perhaps if he's supposed to be a celebrity... and... huh... he looks like rockstar Dominic! *L*!

Anybody else?

Speaking of commercials, how about the great Starburst commercial with our favorite sleaze, Steve Buscemi ( http://www.imdb.com/gallery/ss/0162346/Ss/0162346/GW_144.jpg?path=pgallery&path_key=Buscemi,%20Steve ), a kleptomaniac who steals the candy, clothes, bike and dog off of a hapless guy as they stand and talk. *G*

Well, that at least makes sense! Except, they already had about 6 girls at the table when he arrives!

Personally, I think they created this commercial just to bug me - *L*!

I know exactly the commercial you're talking about, but I can't remember the faux Dom. Of course, now that I want to see it, they'll never show it again.

Really!!!

Well, there are two versions, the short and the long - and they only add this "famous guy" coming in in the long one!

*G* Something to keep your eyes open for in future commercial breaks; let me know if you see it, and what you think. It's definitely not Dom, but...!

Check this out! I was in a patient's room tonight, giving meds when this commercial came on--and it was the Dom version! I can see what you mean, he's short, has similar hair and beard, wears a tan jacket with his arms around two girls on either side. He certainly makes you do a double take, but he's not nearly as cute as Dom. I wonder if they were going for a Dom lookalike. Maybe the director is a "Lost" fan. *LOL*

(hi-- just followed some mutual friends to your lj. *waves*)

LOL! I've never seen the commercial, but some people have been asking about it over on Dom's IMDb forum. I'd love to see Dom's doppleganger! By any chance do you remember which channel/network it's been on, or during which shows?

Really?!?!? *L*! I can't tell you how much I appreciate your saying that - I thought I was the only one! *G*

No, I honestly don't remember. I have been watching a lot of Law and Order reruns, and CSI, and Monk... If I see it again, I'll try to let you know.

Thank you so much again and a wave back! *L*!

I saw the commercial tonight at work and it's *definitely* not Dom, but it makes you wonder if that's what they were going for. Anyway, the guy was a pale imitation at best, not nearly as cute. I was watching it on an ABC affiliate right after the Superbowl.

AH! *covers eyes at your icon* SQUICK! *L*!

Oh, it's definitely not Dom... but the look, the pointed jaw, the glasses, the hair? Strangely similar... *G* Thanks!

Dang! I went to TGIFriday's website and found they show their current commercial right there - but it was actually their previous commercial! Still... might show up in the future. *G*
