Presenting Our Newest Connie and Jack Commercials

I am pleased to announce that Connie and Jack, our likeable and upbeat cellphone-loving couple, have returned in two new commercials to help tell you more about our affordable cellphone service. The commercials share a common theme: unlike one-size-fits-all companies, Consumer Cellular lets you create a simple cellphone plan that is perfect for you, one that virtually has your name on it. And, perhaps best of all, you never pay for more service than you actually need.

But as they say in Hollywood, it is better to show than to tell. So on with the show. I hope you’ll have as much fun watching the commercials as we had planning, shooting and editing them.

Without further introduction, here are the newest Connie and Jack commercials.

I’d like to remind you to share this with your friends and family. If someone you refer becomes one of our customers, both you and your referral will receive a $10 credit on an upcoming invoice. Now that’s the kind of reward I think both Connie and Jack would appreciate, don’t you?

  5. Pablo says

    I like the Connie and Jack commercials quite a bit. Funny, entertaining and they know how to market a good product. Keep them coming!

    reply to Pablo

  6. Lynn says

    I think Connie and Jack are just a tad bit obsessive. All they talk about is consumer cellular, bugging their friends, bugging strangers. Every situation or conversation is an opportunity to push consumer cellular. They need help. Of course, all of this is just tongue in cheek on my part. I think the actress that plays Connie is adorable and of course the ads are effective because I certainly do know the name of the service that is being sold.

    reply to Lynn

  7. Sandy says

    I worked as an extra on this commercial. It was a lot of fun, and I think that comes across in the film. The actors playing Connie, Jack, and Clyde were just a delight. They have wonderful chemistry in real life, not just on film. The crew was terrific too. I was surprised how talented some of the extras were. Indeed, keep Connie, Jack, and Clyde coming back, and please, keep me in mind to be an extra. I’d love to spend more time with these people.

    I’ve looked everywhere but can’t find any info on the black actor who plays Clyde. He resembles the late Bobby Short. So who is he and why is it such a secret?

    reply to Robert

    • Tracy says

      I actually known “Clyde” for many years. Imagine my surprise to live here in Vegas and see him on TV. He wasn’t actively acting when I met him but was a record exec at a MAJOR record company. I’m not sure if I can post his name here but just know that Mr. W is a GREAT guy!

      reply to Tracy

  19. Guy P says

    I think the actor in the ad with the red canoe looks more like Sid Melton who played the comic relief sidekick to Captain Midnight in the TV series.

    reply to Guy

  20. Scott H. says

    Is the actor who plays “Fred” in the Fred and Doris is Sid Melton, who played Charlie Helper on “The Danny Thomas Show” and was in Green Acres as one of the capenters as well as numerous appearances all over tv.

    reply to Scott

  21. John Edward Fortson says

    I also thought the guy who played Fred was Sid Melton, but according to what I read Melton died years ago. Who is he?

    reply to John

  22. rdvegas says

    Whenever I see Fred featured in most of the commercials, I think of someone who may have played Basketball with the Portland Trailblazers many years ago. He is very familiar, wherever he was seen before.

    I am in my 30s, when I am at a bar or restaurant I start telling my friends and strangers all about Consumer Cellular. It’s pretty funny.

  24. Cheryl says

    Why have given the actors names that play Connie and Jack. But not the black actor Clyde. What’s the big secret? I have seen any inquiries. What’s up?

    reply to Cheryl

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thanks for the question, Cheryl. We prefer to respect the privacy of our actors, and not post their names unless they wish us to. In addition, it’s fun to read the guesses from our customers. Thank you for asking, and we hope you have a great day!

          reply to Ashley

      • Tracy says

        For the record I actually know the actor who plays Clyde. No guessing here. I met him in his past professional career in Los Angeles and found his disposition very calming and his personality is as friendly as his smile. I’m glad to see him so happy and doing so well!

        reply to Tracy

  25. Matthew adams says

    The background music in this commercial sounds a lot like it came from cancer victim Zach Sobiechs “clouds” music he wrote and performed during his last days, is it?

    reply to Matthew

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for asking, Matthew. While the song that is in our commercials is not the song you are referring to, the “Clouds” song is lovely. Thank you for asking!

      reply to Ashley

    reply to Pat

  37. Sophia says

    I absolutely love the Jack & Connie commercials! They have a wonderful chemistry & are a joy to watch. I stop what I’m doing anytime one of their commercials come on. They should have their own sitcom! I’m sure Consumer Cellular could their product on the set in strategic places & work various mentions of it in the script. I have some great ideas for it if they want to get in touch with me…

    reply to Sophia

  38. rick says

    Okay just got to say a couple things its a commercial it’s produced to get a point across they’re not obsessive they’re just being paid to be actors to sell a product ok not real its fake that’s what commercials are

    Also concerned jacks weight loss hey it really is just his decision what he wants to be and look like and feel like so what’s up with the put some weight back on who cares if it looks like the same guy or doesn’t look like the same guy again its a commercial! Ok there I feel so much better when I go back to laying on my bamboo pillow and talking on my Consumer Cellular plan

    reply to rick

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for your post, Rick. We hope you’re enjoying the new commercials, and please rest assured that Tim, the actor who plays Jack, is in excellent health. Thank you again for your comment!

    Me and my wife were arguing about the new looking Jack. Im glad yall cleared it up. Of course I lost the argument . I said it was a different Jack. I was a lil upset . Happy to know he is in good health and its the same Jack . But sad I lost the argument

    reply to Pete

  42. Joseph Pederzolli says

    Hi Pete, When I first saw the Jack & Connie commercials with the RV, I thought they would be perfect for a new version of the old Traveling TV Show “Wish You Were Here.” But now knowing that they aren’t married in real life, I guess that wouldn’t work.

    reply to Joseph

  43. joe schmo says

    Commercials are ridiculous. Old people in boats with phone in hand, walking with phone in hand. People complain about young people & phones but REALLY, in a boat!

    reply to joe

  44. Doris says

    Is Jack just losing weight or is he ill. Please let me know because I am noticing the change in his appearance. Thanks!

    reply to Doris

  45. Ron says

    I saw what I believe is the most recent commercial with Jack & Connie & I was amazed at the weight that they have lost, specially Jack. To the point where I am concerned if he is doing alright, so thin. Hope he just decided to get healthy & if that is the case please ask him to comment on what he did. I could stand to loose 30/40 pounds. Hoping all is well?

    reply to Ron

  46. Ron says

    Oh, duh, silly me, I should have read the comment left on Oct 15th, lol. Am glad to see your response with all is well. Thanks.

    reply to Ron

  47. Lorie says

    Glad to hear that “Jack” is not sick. He looks older that thin, as does a lot people who lost weight. When I lost weight everyone said I looked sick. Go figure. They are funny too.

    reply to Lorie

  48. pat novak says

    is jack feeling good he has lost a lot of weight?

    reply to pat

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for asking, Pat. Jack is feeling better than ever, just eating better and getting plenty of exercise. We appreciate your concern!

      reply to Ashley

  49. Shannon says

    I love the commercials. At first I thought jack was played by a new actor because he looks so different. Glad to know that he is healthy. Info though think the look of the old actor is better. As I said before I love the commercials!

    reply to Shannon

  50. Sheila says

    I too recognized Jack’s weight loss and was very confused if what I was seeing was intentional weight loss are uncontrolled weight loss well. I’m glad to hear responses that he’s healthy. I just love watching Jack and Connie’s Consumer Cellular commercials, love their spunk.

    reply to Sheila

  51. TW says

    Was that Dione Warwick in that last commercial where a couple is sitting on front porch rockers?

    reply to TW

  52. Bruce says

    Howdy. Jack Hogan seems to be in a recent commercial. Is it? Thank You…

    reply to Bruce

  53. Mary Beth says

    Enjoy the commercials, but still very concerned about Jacks weight loss. I am not at all convinced that all is well health wise. He plays his part so well, but looks so much older and not nearly as attractive. Wishing him well!

    reply to Mary

  54. LoisAnn says

    From what I’ve read Jack has taken a new turn on health and this is obviously why he is so un-recognizable. Of course, these are personal decisions but he looks sickly. He looked so much better with a little weight on him. My son and I have argued this is a different person playing the part he looks so changed.
    Regardless, the commercials are cute, even if Jack isn’t as cute as before. We all have decisions and if this is his let him be happy.

    reply to LoisAnn

  55. Steve says

    Who plays the farmer in the last commercials?

    reply to Steve

  56. Louise Cannon says

    I agree that Jack looked a lot better and a lot younger with more weight. I wonder if he is as well as he says he is. Maybe he should have a complete check-up with his doctor. He almost looks like a cancer patient and sometimes that creeps up on a person without their knowledge. Just a concerned person who really enjoys the commercials.

    reply to Louise

  57. mike says

    The commercials suck, they are annoying.

    reply to mike

  58. Mary in Metropolis says

    Has the man that plays been sick or just lost weight?

      Thank you for asking, Mary. Tim, the actor who plays Jack, has made some healthy lifestyle changes, but we assure you he is in good health. Thank you for your concern!

  59. Tresha House says

    Thank you for the update about Jack. I’m happy to know that he lost weight because he chose to. I really enjoy watching the consumer cellular commercials with Jack and Connie, they have such great chemistry. Looking forward to more Jack and Connie commercials.

    reply to Tresha

  60. Dave says

    I want the “Connie & Jack Show,” featuring all the other characters as well. They all have such great chemistry with each other. We could use some good, old fashioned, light hearted, good natured comedy.

  61. Anderson Cave says

    I love their commercials but I would like to know are they a real couple?

    reply to Anderson

  66. John Perrault says

    In your latest commercials (as far as we can tell) ‘The Best Fit: First Month Free: Plans $15+ a Month’
    The actors are at a car show (or local meet) in the background is a ‘40 Ford coupe. It is a rare, specific color and make,so that my father-in-law is positive that it is the one he put together in the Fifties. I am looking to find out anything about the show in an attempt to find out the owner of the Coupe. It was featured in a couple editions of Hot Road magazine in the 50’s and the 20th anniversary edition. Also in Car and Craft magazine at the same
    time. My father-in-law would love to share this with the current owner of it is possible…
    Any information would be helpful.
    Thank you
