PITMAN — Everybody was there, at the Brewer house — all kinds of relatives, waiting for one Super Bowl commercial, just one.
Madeline Brewer, star of “Orange Is TheNew Black” and “Hemlock Grove,” would be featured in a Toyota commercial — not just during the Super Bowl, but during the Toyota-sponsored half time.
Brewer was in the kitchen when it came on. Before that, every time a commercial break occurred, her dad would say, “Whoa whoa whoa, here comes a commercial.”
“We filmed it the week before Thanksgiving,” Brewer said on the phone Tuesday. “I knew from the beginning it was going to be in the Super Bowl.”
She knew the kind of major exposure it would get, as well.
“They’re not like every day commercials, a lot of thought is put into them, to give them heart-felt messages, to make people think,” she said.
Brewer is headed back to Los Angeles, but she’s not in a hurry. She and her brother, Nick, are raking a road trip across America, an exciting adventure that will include stops in New Orleans, Austin, Texas and the Grand Canyon.
