So blinded were we by the ostentation of Paramount's eye-catching, two-page, "We made so much money last week that Brad Grey is buying everyone solid-gold robots" spread for Transformers that we completely missed this far more subtle ad lurking in pages of Variety this morning.
Though you may not recognize the actor who memorably portrayed "Gay" Vito Spatafore's troubled son on The Sopranos this season without his Goth makeup, the clever tagline placed alongside his headshot should instantly remind you of his pivotal role on the series. Even if their pitch comes a little too late to get young Brandon into the Emmy race, at the very least the ad should have his agent's phone ringing off the hook every time a producer is looking for the perfect kid to defecate in a shower.
