For me, I prefer to recall David Duchovny (Bob) as the grieving widower trying to brush up on his rusty dating skills as he takes an interest in Minnie Driver (Grace) in “Return To Me”.
his wife as his “Phone-A-Friend”. This made me like him even more for two reasons. One, “Awww…his wife is his FRIEND!” And two, his wife didn’t know the answer to the question either and as the time ran out on the clock for her to help him she said, “Oh honey, you’re so screwed!” and then he laughed, which made me respect their relationship. Later when I found out that he was kind of a creep in real life I tried to plug my ears and go, “La! La! La!” because I wasn’t interested in my image of Bob Rueland, lover of gorillas and monogamy, being tainted.
But alas, his career kinda went in the crapper (which will make even MORE sense in a minute) and he’s one of those celebs who now has to take his money where he can get it. How else do you explain that he is now the voice for a commercial like this?
“Now I’m not just a GOOD pooper, but an OPTIMUM one.” Too funny. I'm wondering, do you think the dog would have agreed to being filmed had he known the nature for which it was going to be used? And one more thing, do you think this stuff is effective on humans too? I know a guy who would pay GOOD MONEY....
