Comedian Faizon Love who has starred in such classics as "ELF", "The Replacements", "Couples Retreat" and "Zookeeper" joined me yesterday to discuss his new role as Boost Mobile's 4Genie and how you can pay less than $50 a month for a smartphone; and his new project with actor Vince Vaughn and writer Mark Brazill. Be sure to check out the video below for more details!
Candace Rose: I heard you had a really interesting commercial shoot!
Faizon Love: "Yes, very cool. I am the 4Genie granting wishes to everyone who wants affordable 4G service, Candace."
Candace Rose: There are surveys that suggest what type of cellphone you use says a lot about you. What comes to mind when you see someone with a particular phone?
Faizon Love: "Well, you see someone with a particular phone and it's like a status symbol. But, realistically if you don't have this phone right here, then you're not so smart because this phone has unlimited service- 4G service with payments that shrink down from $55 to $40 a month. Can you dig that?"
Candace Rose: Can you tell us about your role as the 4Genie in the new national ad campaign?
Faizon Love: "Well, see what I just did I just granted you the knowledge of the affordable 4Genie. Like you said, your phone bills are probably astronomical, this here allows you to get 4G service for a great plan. Your plan will start at like $55, and as long as you pay your bill on time, it shrinks down to $40 a month. Who does that? BOOST Baby!"
Candace Rose: What would you say is your phone personality?
Faizon Love: "My phone personality, I've got to say is smart because I roll with the smart kids, and the smart kids roll with the Boost unlimited 4G service. That's what we do."
Candace Rose: Do you have any additional tips or information you'd like to share?
