Wendy’s isn’t just selling a black bean burger (made vegan without the cheese and parmesan-ranch sauce) … they’ve filmed a commercial to promote its black bean burger, which is more evidence that plant-based eating is taking over.
my friends and i have come to the consensus that wendys commercials are horrible. theres always that annoying red hair ‘wendys girl’ and she points at her food repeatedly and says 'but u could have gotten this tuscany chicken from wendys’ while she licks her lips. i mean no hate to her but wendys needs to step up their commercials instead of utilizing a smart alec to sell hamburgers
Has anyone else noticed that even the most mundane products have these hipster-y commercials now? They have either 1. an animal mascot with a monotone voice and dry humor, 2. weird, off-putting characters, 3. Tumblr glow blog aesthetic, or 4. flashing text over viral videos. I mean, Advil trying to appeal to millennials? Really? lol
If you’ve watched Jane the Virgin, you’ve definitely heard Anthony Mendez’s voice as the narrator who guides viewers through Jane’s life — but you probably wouldn’t recognize him in person.
The (very) smooth-sounding Dominican Mendez has done commercials, radio work, and voiceovers for everything from HBO to Wendy’s commercials, but it’s his work with Jane the Virgin that’s made him more of a household name (or voice!). Now, in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, he shares some surprising behind-the-scenes secrets.
For one, Mendez (pictured below) records all his voiceover work from his bedroom in his New Jersey condo (really!).
“I open up the closet doors and I record in front of it. It really captures all of the reflections of my voice — it doesn’t sound like I’m recording in an empty room,” he told EW. “I would do it in the basement, but it has no windows and it would be really depressing.”
Two, he doesn’t have any plans to appear on-screen any time soon: EW reports that that honor will be saved for Jane’s series finale, whenever that may be. However, he’s not completely opposed to the idea of a silent cameo. “It would be fun to make an appearance without saying any lines,” he said.
