Ferrin Wormer, 24, of Bridgeport is getting his fifteen minutes of fame around the office at Skank Solutions located in the industrial park off Broadway. His entry into a television commercial lottery, won his company a coveted 30 TV commercial spot in Sunday's Superbowl between Denver and Seattle. He hopes to be chosen to star in the commercial now being produced by a cable TV channel.
In an interview with CHANNEL 1 NEWS, he paid tribute to his mother. "I really owe all this to my mom, Charletta. I still live at home and she was the one that saw the lottery contest in the Enquirer. She told me I may as well enter, I did, and I gave her a big back rub after I won."
Wormer graduated from Bridgeport Tech in 2012 and worked the night shift at the city sanitation department for 18 months before landing a sales job at Skank Solutions selling formaldehyde. He also is a volunteer sperm donor at four different clinics.
Skank Solutions didn't believe Wormer at first when Wormer announced his winning the lottery. He was given his own office chair and had his picture taken, which will be on the new labels for the formaldehyde. A sneak peak at the commercial itself, shows a table with white tablecloth and a dead baby pig in a gallon jar filled with Skank's new aqua-blue colored formaldehyde. The music playing in the background is Chris Issac's song, "Forever Blue". An actor enters, sits at the table, and says to the camera, "Forever is a long time, preserve your memories in blue, blue formaldehyde from Skank Solutions." Wormer hopes to land the spot as the actor in the commercial and hopes it's only the beginning of a new acting career. He says he sees the red carpet in his future.
CHANNEL 1 NEWS looks forward to watching this commercial on Sunday and will follow this story and report any updates.
