I have seen a few of these ads for LG featuring James Lipton, both bearded and un. I have to say, ol’ JL’s typically pompous act is thankfully hidden in these spots. He seems completely fine poking fun at himself and looks surprisingly like a completely alternate human without his trademark beard. And hey, lets face it, removing a beard and putting it on a woman is always entertaining. I quite enjoyed Lipton’s catfight sound effects, too. He’d be a believable cat on Halloween. Sort of.
