Going Commercial
by Andre Jackson on April 18th, 2012

I filmed a commercial last Saturday for PBS.  It was really more of a public service announcement.  It promotes the idea that it's never too late to pursue higher education.  Look for it this summer.  It'll be running or a year!

On a personal note, I was really excited about my role in this commercial. I watch people promote all sorts of crap on television these days and I always wonder, "Does that actor really use that product or is he/she just trying to sell it to me in exchange for a paycheck?  Does Dennis Haysbert really have Allstate Insurance?  Does Queen Latifah really use Jenny Craig? Does Kim Kardashian even own a single pair of Skechers?"

I can unequivocally state that I am a huge fan of PBS .  I've been watching it since I can remember watching television. Sesame Street, 321 Contact, and Mister Rogers' Neighborhood are my first memories of television.  By the time I started kindergarden, I could read, write, and count thanks, largely, to PBS.  I would have done this commercial for free (don't tell that to my agent).
