Consumer Cellular: McCann Twins

Post by rogerwimmer » Thu Mar 17, 2011 2:50 am

Doc: There is an ad for Consumer Cellular on TV that shows the McCann twins talking about the service. Other people may like the ad, but I think it's obnoxious. Who are the McCann twins? - Anonymous

Anon: I have seen the ad too and wondered the same thing. For anyone who hasn't seen the TV ad, it's available on YouTube - click here.

The McCann twins aren't twins; they are played by the same actor – Ron Maestri. You can read more about him if you click here, or go to his website.
