I figured I’d top off the day with something good about America, its good, old-fashioned, masculine men–one of whom is my good friend, Chris Kennedy. He’s one of the many we still have here in America, amongst the growing crowd of girlie-men.
Chris is something rare in Hollywood and in the Kennedy family (he’s a distant Kennedy cousin), a conservative actor with good Midwestern values. I’ve known Chris about half my life, and he has always been a good friend, attending all my appearances on shows shot in L.A. He was a member of the 1994 Wisconsin Rose Bowl Champion Football Team and has been on Monk, Friends, Party of Five, and many other shows and movies. I last wrote about Chris when he was in an online phone ad for Sprint.
But now he’s in a very, very cool ad for the Shelby GT 500 Mustang, posted below. Hint: Chris is the hot guy on the right saying, “I couldn’t find a speed limit I liked in America.”
Chris tells me the ad was filmed on Vancouver Island, Canada, where the street signs were temporarily changed to German. Chris Kennedy’s website is here.
