LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- It’s not even Super Bowl season yet, but one sports-themed commercial is already making headlines – an ad for the AXE Detailer, starring actress Jaime Pressly.
“You don’t know how hard it was to get through that commercial,” Jaime told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover on Monday’s Access Hollywood Live of the suggestive ad for a shower body cleaning tool, which has more than 4 million hits already on YouTube. (Click HERE to watch it)
Jaime said filming the infomercial-style spoof was a hilarious experience, but she wanted to make sure that she had a character for her role in the spot.
“We had the best time that day,” Jaime laughed. “We called [my character] Monica Blake. Even though it’s me, it looks just like me… I said, ‘You cannot say ‘Jaime Pressly cleans balls.’ So it’s Monica Blake. I’m like, ‘OK, I feel better now.’”
Jaime adds that she managed to get through filming in just “8 or 9 hours.”
“But I had a really, really difficult time when the old man came out,” she told Billy and Kit, referring to a senior citizen who appears in the ad holding two athletic balls that have been beaten up, worn down and are full of dirt.
While Jaime is glad the ad is a hit, she has some advice for some of the teenage boys who are dousing themselves in AXE’s bodywash.
“Boys: You are supposed to rinse it off in the shower – you do rinse it off,” she laughed.
Jaime can next be seen in the thriller, “Sandra Brown’s Smoke Screen” on Lifetime Movie Network, airing November 21 at 8 PM ET.
