AUGUSTA, Ga. — Advanced Services, Augusta, Ga., recently created a new zombie-themed TV commercial that will air during the popular cable TV show “Walking Dead.”

Titled “The Bugsly's Apocalypse” the ad stars Mike Adams, a 15-year veteran at Advanced, as Mr. Bugsly, a father who just watched a TV report about mosquitoes carrying the zombie virus. Of course, this report comes just moments after Mr. Bugsly’s kids complain about getting bitten by mosquitoes. You can figure out the rest of the story and watch the commercial here.

 

Advanced Services President Jeff Annis said the Advanced team created the video, including concept development, acting, writing and video production.

Advanced Services also created a fun, more family-friendly commercial to promote its termite services titled “Bugsly's Advanced Princess Party” which can be viewed here.
