Hello all:bounce:
There is a T.V. commercial up here in Canada that advertizes Tide and features a Belgian candy chef that is working in Calgary Alberta and gets his clothes dirty .He uses Tide to clean them.
I wonder if anybody else has seen this commercial and if this man is a real candy chef,or the whole commercial is a ficticious story line and this man is an actor posing as a candy chef.
Any thoughts all you chefs out there?Is this man one of you?:bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

I haven't seen the commercial though I'd like to, but I think 99% of the time actors are used. Can't take the chance that one of us real life schmucks will throw a wrench into the works! Not to mention that I really can't see a Belgian Chef who's any good that would allow himself to be viewed as a cochon, even if he was!

Never mind I got ya, I don't have a recollection from that era! But I looked and can't find him, maybe he went back to San Francisco;)

Funny you should mention Tide...

I had a chef friend years ago who was in a commercial for Tide. I was surprised at the time that they didn't use an actor.
