What to Know
- Six children from D.C., Maryland or Virginia will appear in a commercial that will air Sunday during the Super Bowl.
- In the 30-second advertisement, the kids explore topics such as whether pizza can get delivered in space.
- It marks the second consecutive year that CSRA, an IT government contractor, purchased an advertisement during the Super Bowl.
Keira Tarmy doesn’t watch sports and isn’t interested in the significance of Sunday night’s Super Bowl on NBC, but the young actress plans to watch anyway. Like many viewers, she'll focus on the ads.
Tarmy and five other child actors between 4 and 9 years old will appear in a commercial for CSRA, a local IT government contractor, that will air during the game.
In the 30-second advertisement, the kids explore topics ranging from whether pizza gets delivered in space to the types of food robots might eat. All of the kids in the commercial are from either D.C., Maryland or Virginia, and some have extensive acting resumes.
Maxwell Owens, for instance, has appeared in five commercials and multiple movies.
While talking to News4 Friday, the children didn't hesitate to offer their best acting advice.
"You need to practice on your expression," Nilani Castillo said of what makes a successful actor. "...do what they want you to do."
“And don’t be shy and just act like your normal self,” Isabelle Aguilar said.
It marks the second consecutive year that CSRA purchased an advertisement during the Super Bowl. Last year, the company used its spot to promote its new “Think Next. Now.” branding. That ad appeared locally and in Huntsville, Alabama, and San Diego.
The new commercial is scheduled to appear on NBC twice Sunday -- first during “Meet The Press” and again during the second quarter of the Super Bowl.
A 30-second national commercial during this year’s game cost more than $5 million, according to a Sports Illustrated report.
