Georgia Clean Air Campaign

Nothing makes us snap to attention like someone shoving pencils up their nose. So when a Georgia Clean Air Campaign ad featured local actor George Faughnan doing just that, it made us chuckle. Unfortunately, it also made us link pencils up the nose with Clean Air so now, subconsciously, we think clean air is bad. But the commercial is still funny. Anyhoo, both of the guys in the commercial -- Matt Stanton (in the other car) and Faughnan (with pencils up nose) -- are veteran improv masters from comedy hotspot Dad's Garage. A snort of trivia for ya: Stanton and Faughnan are pals, but since they were filmed independently, they didn't realize they were in the same commercial until it aired.
