Oreck’s VersaVac Commercial

Remember that time a group of New Yorkers and Oreckers nearly gave me an anxiety attack/heart attack killer combo when they came to my house to shoot footage for a national television commercial for Oreck’s new VersaVac?

Well guess what – the commercial is live!

I was so nervous to watch it that I literally waited four days from the time they emailed me the link until I actually opened it.  I had no idea what to expect, but quickly went from nervous to excited when I saw that G made the cut!  Check out the commercial below and see if you can spot him:

Other bloggers featured in the commercial include the Shanty sisters (Whitney and Ashley) from Shanty 2 Chic, Veronica Armstrong, Marian from Miss Mustard Seed, and Sarah from The Ugly Duckling House.  I met nearly all of these fabulous ladies at the Haven Conference and it’s so neat to see all of us featured like this!

Everyone did such a great job, and I’m especially impressed with all the work the Oreck team and their partners put into making this happen.  I don’t know what all goes into creating a commercial but from the small bit I’ve seen I can tell it’s A LOT.

I’m not sure what times of day the commercial airs, or on which networks, but if you happen to catch it I’d love to hear!

Check out Oreck’s VersaVac channel on YouTube to see even more, including my audition video which is featured there!

    We know famous people! I wish the commercial had been more about you and less about vacuuming bowling balls (LOL). But I love it none the less!

    I SAW IT ON TV LAST NIGHT!!!!! Do I lose my “friend of ATG&D” card if I tell you it came on while I was watching Fox News? :X I was in bed scrolling through pinterest on my phone when I heard your voice and head popped up. “I KNOW THEM!!!” I yelled to my hubby. He was all “Uhhhh, ok” and went back to snoring.

    That is SO COOL, Liz!! Your comment is the first I’ve heard about someone catching it on TV! Thank you so much for sharing!! (PS. I giggled at your Fox News comment. No worries – your “FoATG&D card” is still safely intact, hahaha.)
