Here's another creative take on "Metaphorically Speaking" with R.A. Suave. We hope you enjoy.
The perfect mixture of ingredients makes the garbage plate what it is. The same could be said for Rochester Appliance. In this commercial, R.A. Suave uses metaphors to tie the two together... Enjoy.
Juan may not be cut out for appliance sales. Find out why, here.
What does Juan really want? Find out in the commercial we're airing during the finale.
Other than the actors, most of the talent behind the commercials were in their early 20's. They made me feel old. (I'm 30). Here are a few more photos of everyone in action.
Jeff Miller (esteemed actor and VoIP Master) and Sullivan Slentz (Mastermind of all positive things)
Sound Technician, Chris Vial working with Allison Roberts as she discusses with Sullivan how crazy she's about to look. She blew it out of the water.
Juan giving me marketing advise.
Aaron Gordon doing his thing...
Sully couldn't get enough of this concept. Shhhhh, we haven't aired it yet....
My wife, Juan and myself...and Sully.
Hard at work, filling out the TPS report. Office Space reference anyone?
Juan was under the weather as stated in previous posts. His nose wouldn't stop running. It made for a very busy day for Makeup/Stylist Robyn Fazio.
Other than thanking God that Juan was sick so she could be close to him, Robyn did makeup for others.

We all had a blast shooting the Juan Pablo commercials! Here are a few photos...
Aaron Gordon (left) is the finest cinematographer in the region. If you disagree with him, he'll gently convince you to change your mind. His people skills are off the charts. Sullivan Slentz (right) is the writer and director of this endeavour. He's a multifaceted, out of the box, brilliant individual. It's an honor to know him.
Both guys are always upbeat and know how to lighten the mood.
I'll leave you with what should be at the end of every blog post... a picture of my son. Many more posts with behind the scenes pictures and videos to come!
Here's the answer to the language barrier situation...
Things are starting to get out of hand with Juan Pablo as our salesman...
I'm humbled by how much my staff cares for its customers. When dealing with a customer, my staff continues to put themselves in the shoes of the consumer. Excellent customer service is what has been building this business via word of mouth for many years now. This award is a testament to the character of my employees. Only 5% of Angie's List businesses receive this award. Keep it up guys!
Juan may be a little busy... We have many other well-trained, handsome technicians if you're interested...
