Wow, just had a minute to go through the last few pages...just...WOW!

Thank you so much for all your congrats and support! Seriously, it's just settling in now.

Of course it would have been nice to win the million, don't get me wrong. And who knows how the final decision was made. The Middle Seat ad was made by an American TV director in LA, and he called in favours to use a real airplane set for his ad. We just had a pig and a farm!

We all have our opinions and speculations. I really do think ours was the best, as objectively as I can say that. But you know what?? I'm friggin stoked!

Being able to affect over 100 million people with something I was a part of is just an incredible feeling. And to have friends and family and RSers and so many people tell me they jumped up and cheered in their home or at the bar, is just so cool.

So this will definitely be huge for my career, as a local actor and beyond. I had a good year last year, and this is a damn good start!

I'm so happy everyone here can share in the joy if you were in this from my first post!

Can't say it enough, thank you again RevScene!!

Check out Graham on Breakfast Television this morning! I'm sure there will be plenty more coverage!

And don't be a stranger at future RS meets! Looking forward to the Spring Meet!

Graham Talbot | Breakfast Television Vancouver

And we made the Top 10 for the USA TODAY's Ad Meter! Basically the 10th most popular ad in the world!!

I think you guys did pretty well for yourselves considering the middle seat ad was featured on the news ticker on the front page of Yahoo earlier last week. Either way, congrats dude

OP is going to make a cameo on Supernaturals, Flash, Arrow, and whatever else is filmed locally in Vancouver.

Matter of fact CRS, you can catch me on Arrow on Wednesday, February 11th on the CW!

In a decidedly different role than the ad

Haha good to hear people are seeing it! I don't have cable so I don't get to catch it, but it's fun to hear when people see it.

The OfficeMax one aired during the Grammy's, which was the same week as the Super Bowl. Good week for exposure!

Here's another short one that just came out...chillin in bed at 0:14
