Lodi, CA (PRWEB) April 6, 2010
Beginning this week, Clark Pest Control’s 2010 television advertising campaign will air on stations across California as well as in Reno, NV. This year’s campaign features a 10-year girl from Marysville named Mariah Glassgow. Mariah isn’t an actress – she’s just a regular fifth-grade student who won the role at an audition in Reno last year.
Out of more than 600 people who auditioned last summer, Clark Pest Control selected Mariah as the winner of its competition for the role in this year’s campaign. Thousands of her commercial spots will air between April and October 2010 on local broadcast stations and cable networks during peak newscasts and programs.
Established in 1950, Clark Pest Control has been providing residential and commercial pest control services to a valued customer base throughout California and Reno, Nevada. The company has historically used humor in its commercials to convey the many problems its customers are encountering and the services they provide to counteract those issues. The storyline of this year’s ad pokes fun at the everyday issues families face when dealing with bugs and pests in their homes and backyards.
Since 2008, Clark Pest Control has held open auditions in various cities across California and Nevada looking for talent. This is the second consecutive year that the company has cast someone in its advertising campaign that was discovered during these auditions.
“We are always overwhelmed by the amount of talented people we find at our auditions, but Mariah really stood out from the crowd and had all the qualities we were looking for in an actor for this year’s campaign” said Robert Baker, operations manager, Clark Pest Control. “Despite being a young girl, she was very professional and a natural on camera.”
Mariah Glassgow is a student as Walter Kynoch Elementary School in Marysville, Calif. Not only is she active in sports such as softball and gymnastics, but she is also an excellent student. She loves to sing and dance, and hopes to pursue acting in the future.
