Lots of actors are having a tough time in Hollywood these days — production of films and scripted TV is substantially down in 2009 — but Tillman the amazing skateboard-riding bulldog isn’t feeling the pinch! He’s landed himself the starring role in a new TV spot for Armstrong flooring.
In the TV ad, a man is seen sitting in his living room, the sound of skateboard-on-hardwood is off-camera. The man calls out, “No skateboarding in the house, Charlie” and the viewer assumes he’s talking to his son. Not so fast — it’s Tillman being the bad boy!
The four-year-old pooch has his own website, sells promotional T-shrts and hats, and has become a regular on the personal appearance circuit.
