You’ve gotta be a little nuts to climb into a wrestling ring with the likes of “The Rock” and “The Undertaker”.  So it’s perfectly fitting that pro wrestler, rapper, and actor John Cena is featured in the largest pistachio ad campaign ever.  As the voice of the animated character Ernie the Elephant, John lends his charm and wit to Wonderful Pistachios’ latest “Get Crackin’” ad spots.  

And that distinct voice you hear in the commercials was recorded right here at Studio West just a few weeks ago.  Our crew had a great time hosting John and the Wonderful Pistachios team.  And even though John towered over most of us, the moment was “never too big” for our experienced team.  

Two of the spots recorded here at Studio West began airing on October 10 with more on the way.  Check out the ad and some behind-the-scenes footage shot here at Studio West.
