“Struggling to make it in today’s Emmy race?” Saul Goodman asks in a “Better Call Saul” For Your Consideration ad.
Well, if you thought television advertising was too expensive, worry not, because Goodman (portrayed by Bob Odenkirk) is here to assure you otherwise. In fact, he claims, you can’t afford not to be on TV.
Goodman’s simple commercial, a nod to his character’s side business of shooting commercials for local businesses, ensures his customers that he’s the go-to guy to produce all Emmy FYC ads at an affordable price.
“Better watch out for autograph hounds and paparazzi,” Goodman warns of the inevitable success following the use of his services.
Through his fictitious company, Saul Goodman Productions, he promises his promptly made videos will deliver results — and customers will walk away from the Emmys with a statuette.
“You’re an actor,” he asserts. “So act now.”
“Better Call Saul” scored nine Emmy nominations, including outstanding drama series, outstanding supporting actor for Jonathan Banks, and outstanding lead actor for Odenkirk.
The 2017 Primetime Emmy Awards take place Sept. 17 on CBS.
