Rachel Ray Show Features Vern Fonk Commercial Shot at Elle Marie Hair Studio

Vern Fonk Insurance Pitchman To Make Guest Appearance on Nationally Syndicated Rachel Ray Show

SEATTLE—StevensonPR— Nationally syndicated “The Rachel Ray Show” has recorded a segment with Rob Thielke of Everett based Vern Fonk Insurance that will air across the country on Thursday, May 19, 2011. The Rachel Ray show airs locally on KIRO 7 TV weekdays at 3pm.

Vern Fonk’s television commercials have grown from Northwest cult status, gaining national and even world-wide recognition for its irreverent humor. In addition to the millions of views on the internet, they’ve been featured for their humor on The Tonight Show, G4 Network, VH1 and E!TV.

When the producers of the Rachel Ray Show called Thielke to schedule his appearance, filmed in New York City on 5/2, he jumped at the chance for what will be the first time he’s been on the national stage to actually discuss the methods behind his commercial madness.

Thielke, along with the help of his long time ad agency, Stevenson Advertising, even produced a “Fonk-Style” commercial specifically for use on the Rachel Ray Show.

Filmed at Elle Marie Hair Studio in Mill Creek and starring local actresses Ericka Bergman and Sarah Bowman, along with Thielke, the “Salon” commercial was well received by Ray and her producers and brought plenty of laughs from the studio audience. All actors are available for interviews.

Vern Fonk Insurance is a leading provider of auto insurance with offices located primarily in Western Washington. Vern Fonk Insurance now has 11 locations.

In 2011 and beyond, Vern Fonk and its parent company Confie Seguros, the New York based holding company which purchased Vern Fonk Insurance January 1, 2010, plans to continue the expansion of the Fonk brand and open additional locations through both acquisition and organic start up.
