Skoda Yeti

Yesterday, Fernando participated in the shooting of a TV commercial for the new Skoda model Yeti in Romania. The spot was conceived by Frank, produced by Saga Film and directed by Dobrivoie Kerpenisan.

Fernando's character is a weird bureaucrat eating kebab in a boring office, while in front of him there is an empty chair belonging to a colleague that is having fun somewhere else with his new Yeti car.

Belmar in Moldova

Surprisingly enough, few days ago, in the parking lot of a shopping center in Balti, the second largest town in the Republic of Moldova, I was able to see myself on an outdoor (below) promoting the mayonnaise Belmar, almost 2 years after I acted as a French cook for their TV spot.

On October 8th and 9th, Fernando participated in the shootings of four TV spots for the new Romanian campaign of the margarine Rama, directed by Andrei Cohn.

Fernando's character is called Fernando, a disastrous comic cook presented by the culinary expert Oliver Owen (the Irish actor Arthur O'Looney). Fernando's synthetic margarine always generates painful unexpected results, until Oliver himself decides to show how to make the real one.


On September 29th 2008, Fernando participated in a spot directed by Igor Chirkov for the mayonnaise Belmar in the Republic of Moldova.

Fernando's character is a caricature of Cardinal Richelieu, the old-fashioned villain who is always fighting against the now modernized Three Musketeers, representing fixed-line telephony, Internet services and cable TV.

The Spanish movie Marcelino pan y vino (1955), directed by the Hungarian director Ladislao Vajda, was the first movie I ever watched - as far as my memory goes. I was probably as old as the main character Marcelino (in the picture) and I remember that I left the movie theatre in tears, hand in hand with my mother who had brought me there.
