You Don't Need an Actor. You Need a Wizard.


Looking for a spokesperson? Alex Perez isn't just a spokesguy; he's an ad wizard. He's also brazenly unafraid of making those "Sex me with your eyes" poses that midlife-crisis-driven creative directors love inflicting on innocent bystanders.

Self-produced ad work includes Double A-OK for Duracell and Pepto Star for Pepto Bismol. Please watch them. Please.

He's hot!

If by "hot" you mean "hawt."

Can I have the last two minutes of my life back?

Sorry Andrew, I already put them in my special jar.

He's an ad WIZARD, right? I seem to remember Harry Potter using more than one spell.

Two words for Mr. Perez- Media Law. Check 'em out, before you get sued.

Wow - as a self professed spokesperson for the youth of today, Alex is about as out of touch with the youth of today as one can get. How many stereotypical "marketer" youth images can you put in one "spot"

This has got to be some kind of joke. This guy can't be serious, can he?

He's like a poor man's Andy Samberg. With no talent.

if he's latino, perez makes a strong argument against diversity.

Bevo, ever heard of internet humor?

I'm in Andrew's camp.

Fake, but still a funny self-promo. (C‘mon, the gag of swapping out products for the same vids?) His YouTube page has only been up for a day. The vids that were supposedly entered in contests aren't even on that page.

Looks like someone just got the attention of a few agencies/creative, and we helped.

I think these ads are awesome. And hilarious. Awe-larious. I would absolutely hire this guy-- on the condition that every ad he made for me had to use this same mish-mash of (probably not legally used) movie clips and his own stellar posing. Imagine this ad repurposed for an iPhone! Brilliant!

I'm plotting the break-in of Angela's special jar.

If this is someone who is intentionally spoofing lame youth-oriented advertising, then it's neither ironically funny nor insightful.

Boy, there are a lot of people out there with very capable tools and not a lot of ideas on what to do with them to actually sell stuff.

Clearly meant to be funny but so incredibly lame and painful. I too, would like two minutes of my life back. That guy is a douchebag.
