We are HUGE coffee drinkers at our home and we gotta have our creamers. You can always find a few bottles of Coffee Mate in our fridge. When I heard that they teamed up with the Girl Scouts of America in search of a scout to appear in their ads I was thrilled. I love that they have chosen to use a “non actor” for their commercial. If you haven’t caught a glimpse of this ad yet you need to. It’s hilarious.
This past summer, Nestlé COFFEE-MATE® announced a nationwide casting call seeking an authentic Girl Scout to star in its television commercial for new, special edition COFFEE-MATE® Girl Scouts® creamers …and a star has been born!
Abby (10 yrs.) from River Falls, Wisconsin has landed the coveted role and will be featured in the new commercial set to air on NBC, ABC and CBS networks beginning today. Abby was selected by a judging panel from among more than 600 online and in-person auditions and after being called back for subsequent auditions, this small-town Girl Scout from River Falls, WI, was whisked away to the entertainment capital of the world. While Abby has previously graced the stage at her local community theater, this was her first time seeing the Hollywood lights and starring in a mainstream commercial.
Donning a Girl Scout Junior uniform, Abby recently wrapped the new COFFEE-MATE commercial where she questions what an office worker did to deserve COFFEE-MATE Girl Scout Thin Mints flavored creamer, given that it is “one of the most delicious Girl Scout Cookie flavors ever.” To view the newly released commercial and behind the scenes footage of Abby’s journey, please visit http://www.coffee-mate.com/.
