Ben Stein, economist, lawyer, financial writer, former presidential speechwriter, actor, and TV personality, is the new spokesperson for FreeScore.comSM, the online credit service offered by FreeScore, LLC. A new 60-second television commercial featuring Ben Stein starts airing nationwide this week.
The commercial opens with Ben Stein sitting on a park bench reading a newspaper with the headline, “Americans in Financial Hole.” In the background, people are popping out of holes and being whacked on the head by mallet-wielding creditors. Ben Stein opens the spot with the statement: “Think about it. If you’re buried up to your neck in debt, it can feel like creditors are trying to whack you on the head. Whether you’re in a financial hole, or just want to get a loan, a better interest rate, or a new job; you’re at the mercy of your credit scores. You can’t fix errors on your credit report if you haven’t seen it. That’s why I went to FreeScore.com.”
The commercial was created by R2C Group of Portland, Oregon.
The spot also features an animated squirrel named Filbert as an assistant to Mr. Stein. Filbert, sporting a bow tie and glasses, offers additional information about the FreeScore.com service, including a sign that shows the three sources of credit reports that FreeScore.com delivers as part of its service: TransUnion, Equifax and Experian. Filbert closes the commercial by saying, “Life costs more without FreeScore.”
