You can tell just from the guy's back that it's Robert Downey Jr., but I'm mostly happy to see Jon Polito again after several years of absence from Coen brothers movies, and a great shout-out to Downey Sr.'s masterpiece of advertising and race relations, Putney Swope. This is a fun ad, although it's a lot more expensive than it needs to be for a fairly simple concept.
