Many are calling it the best commercial they’ve ever seen and comic James Schrader has a lot to do with that. The writer, actor, and comedian joined forces with William Painter’s advertising team to create comedic gold and a commercial that actually has people Googling not only the product it sells but the commercial and the actor who stars in it.
James Schrader can be found performing stand-up but when he isn’t using his talents to make people laugh in person, he’s lending his skills to companies and creating viral videos. The commercial he filmed for William Painter has more than 16 million views and is titled, “If You Or Somone You Love Has A Face…”
Speaking about breaking the Internet with an ad for the only pair of sunglasses you’ll ever need, Schrader stated the following.
“The team at William Painter and Raindrop Branding & Advertising were great to work with, very collaborative, and let me be me in the moment. We made a video that we are proud of and look forward to making the next one.”
That type of ad-libbing and creativity is a talent and gift and it’s clear that James Schrader has both.
