    According to wikipedia, Paul Marcarelli started appearing as the "Test Man" character in Verizon Wireless commercials, for which Entertainment Weekly named him one of the most intriguing people of 2002. In April 2011 Marcarelli was informed by email that Verizon was moving in a new direction with its advertising campaign. He remained under contract but would no longer play "Test Man". Marcarelli was glad that he was able to move on from it.

    Since 2016 Marcarelli has been working as a Sprint spokesman and often refers to his switch from Verizon to Sprint in the commercials in which he appears.

    He is married to his husband Ryan Brown, who appeared with Paul in a Sprint ad, shopping for Christmas trees.

    Yeah, tacking them on the end often undermined the main commercial (although the Hump Day one was good enough to survive it).

    Michael Vale, the “Time to make the doughnuts” guy, did it from 1981-1997. I always liked him!

    Wow, I never realized he played in that ad for that long. Jan Miner played Madge the Manicurist for Palmolive dishwashing liquid from 1966 to 1992

    Holy COW that’s a long time!

    EDIT
    Billy Mays was steadily pitching items for the Home Shopping Network from 1993 till he passed away in 2009.

    And don't forget Mr. Whipple, played by Dick Wilson from 1964 - 1985, for Charmin toilet paper. He even came back some time around 1999 for a short time.

    I love the ads with the woodchucks. Forget the company. But the one with the fake lumber ad and fake coffee ad they really got me. I thought it was an ad for coffee and lumber store. Until those damn woodchucks. They always crack me up.
    Favorite teams. Alpha Flight, Avengers, Fantastic Four, West Coast Avengers, Justice Society of America, Legion of Superheroes.

    Pull List - Lois Lane, Amazing Mary Jane, Black Cat, Doctor Doom, Gwen Stacy, Jane Foster Valkyrie, Morbius Savage Avengers, Strike Force, Something Is Killing The Children

    My name change was approved. Old name. Tbaron
