Film Vault Friday: Jim Gaffigan for… everything

While “vacationing” in New York last week (if you call watching 6 shows in 3 days a “vacation”… and I do…) I played hooky on Film Vault Friday. Had I not been too preoccupied by my virgin journey on the infamous G train, I would have honored the surprise set by Jim Gaffigan at UCB last Thursday night with one of many tidbits from his product-hawking past. Given the amount of commercials he’s appeared in, chances are he makes a similar appearance somewhere in your collection of VHS tapes.
