Gillian Vigman. Is her name familiar to you? It should be. Lately, it seems, she's been in practically every ad on the planet. OK -- so that's a blatant over-generalization, but the woman has been in a lot of ads!
Vigman is an actress who has appeared in "The Hangover," "The Hangover II" and "The 40-Year-Old Virgin." She also been in "Cougar Town," "New Girl," "Suburgatory," "Californication," "United States of Tara," "Scrubs," "CSI" and "Supernatural." Oh, and she was also on MADtv. The woman is busy!
As for ads, are you ready? 1-800-Contacts, Chase, Jack in the Box, DirecTV, Swiffer, California Milk, Esurance, McCormick, Hanes, Splenda and Buick.
It's kind of par for the course in advertising. Once you agency folk have latched on to one good thing (be it a song, a location or a particular actor), you all just can't wait to jump on the bandwagon and do the same thing. Or so it seems.
