Dan Finnerty, who is the lead singer of The Dan Band which is best known for its appearances in Old School and Starsky And Hutch learned that lesson after finishing a new commercial for Taco Bell.
He says its just his luck that he scored the contract right before the restaurant had its recent E.coli scare.
Says Finnerty: At least, I didnt sign on for a spinach campaign.
This isnt the first time Finnertys had bad timing when it comes to his acting gigs.
Back in 2001 he signed up to do voiceover work for the travel website expedia.com right before 9/11.
As he puts it, Im like Yeah, everyone go on planes and after 9/11 they rethought that and were like, No we need someone like Walter Cronkite to tell people its OK to fly.
For now, Finnerty says hes put the acting gigs on hold for a few weeks to tour with his band and promote their new adult-oriented Christmas CD, Ho.
