The results are in, and a Valley resident will be one of four Applebee's fans featured in the restaurant chain's new digital commercial. In December and January, folks were asked to submit Vine videos with the hashtag "BeeFamous." From all the submitted videos of people making "their most unbelievable reactions," David Goldberg of Chandler was picked to appear alongside three others to portray utter disbelief in the abundant options of Applebee's new Weight Watchers-friendly under-550-calorie menu. Check out Goldberg's eye-popping performance in the 30-second spot after the jump.
Whether this is the beginning of this Valley man's meteoric rise to fame (as Applebee's seems to imply), we can't say, but congrats to him for making the cut.
