Takeda Books National Walmart Radio Commercial

This winter, TV/Film Actor Scott Takeda recorded a national SAG-AFTRA radio commercial for Walmart. He was cast as a customer shopping for snow tires.

“We actually recorded this over the phone,” said Takeda, “so I didn’t even need to be in a studio. The session lasted about 15 minutes. And my “motivation” was fairly simple. I was actually looking for snow tires at the time, so the host asked me some questions, and we did a bit of comedic improv for the session. It was a lot of fun.”

The spot is running nationally as a part of a multi-platform campaign by The Martin Agency out of Virginia. The goal of the spot was to show that Walmart carries a full line of brand-name snow tires at unbeatable price. Takeda’s SAG-AFTRA agent in Colorado is Donna Baldwin Agency.
