Ty Pennington Peddles Verizon, Sears and ADHD Meds
When I saw a cell phone commercial featuring Ty Pennington the other night, it hit me – Pennington has become quite the pitchman. This particular spot had him hawking a Verizon Wireless mobile device and sporting a lovely Canadian Tuxedo!
Pennington has also replaced Bob Vila as Sears' go-to guy. He has his own line of products with the retailer and as is the star of their weekly reality and best-product-placement-ever show, Extreme Makeover Home Edition on ABC.
Ty also hawks some ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyper Activity Disorder) medicine in a spot that starts off with, "A lot of people don't realize it, but I have ADHD." I think anyone who has ever seen one of Ty's shows realizes the man has ADHD. He spends most of his time running around screaming at people through a megaphone.
So lookout world, the new metrosexual Bob Vila is on the prowl.
