The Voice Behind McDonald’s Frozen Strawberry Lemonade Commercials

Earlier this month, McDonald’s officially announced the national launch of their Frozen Strawberry Lemonade. Shortly after, the brand let loose their full fledged marketing campaign for the frozen summer drink, spanning both web and video, starring a sour and depthful-looking talking lemon.

Shortly after the campaign hit the airwaves and took over the McDonald’s website, we inquired with representatives of the campaign to verify the voice over actor behind the talking lemon. Indeed, Steven Schirripa…more popularly known as Bobby “Bacala” Baccalieri from the HBO series The Sopranos.

A little gangster swagger paralleling the sour flavors in the new Frozen Strawberry Lemonade? Sounds rather fitting. For those that aren’t familiar with Bobby Baccalieri’s work on The Sopranos, here’s a taste:

Video of the Day: Sopranos' Paulie Walnuts on Espresso

Hate it or love it, our man Paulie Walnuts from HBO’s Sopranos is very opinionated when it comes to Italian food and delicacies, especially when it comes to America’s over production and consumption of Espresso. Get learned.

The new website is coming soon, and when it comes time to implement it, we may experience some down time…and the best way for us to communicate is through Twitter. Anyways, for your enjoyment, here are some stories through the eye of my phone again:

Video of the Day: Who Ate All the Gabagool ?

I’ve been watching an insane amount of HBO’s Sopranos on DVD lately, trying to catch up on all the seasons I’ve missed. For any fans of the show, you definitely notice all the important ways food is intertwined into the show, whether it’s Tony’s meat store that they use as a front, or their informative family dinners. Above we have a MAD TV sketch which does an amazing job rehashing the show into a couple minutes, showing the food ridiculousness, and how the show would be different on network television as opposed to subscription HBO. Who ate all the Gabagool?!
