Am I missing something?

I admit I pay attention to those McDonald's ads with folks trying to prove themselves to be true New Englanders. So imagine my surprise to read this line in Johnny Diaz's Globe story:
The men in the ads are actors based in New York City, although one, Gavin Lodge, is from Connecticut.
You mean New York-a-chusetts?

Real New Englanders? Fuhgetaboutit.

In one there is a guy in the background waxing or cleaning or buffing a boat. He is from the area. I gave blood with him a few months ago. True, he didn't have a speaking role, but he wasn't from NYC.

Thnaks Brian. And the spots were made locally.

It's just strange the speaking parts went to a couple of guys from NYC. Aren't there enough out-of-work actors here? Just sayin...
