F - R - E - E

This is my favorite of the FreeCreditReport.com commercials. I was singing this particular jingle inanely all day at school last week, and someone asked what the name of that band was. I hadn't really thought of them being a band, but I think it was Derrick I was talking to that brought up the observation that it's the same couple of guys each commercial. I did a little research, and they are not a band.

The singer is a guy named Eric Violette, and he is a French actor. Here's his website: http://www.ericviolette.com/. The video on the front page has him, slightly pudgier, speaking in French about what seems to be a montage of his dramatic roles in low-budget soap operas. I wasn't sure if this was the guy or not, till I checked out his experiences and saw, Rôle principal in Free credit report, réalisateur Danny Leiner under the Publicité section.
