Dr Horrible's Steve Berg in Mike's Hard Lemonade commercials. Looks like these have been around since last year, but I just saw one air and found a good link to an earlier commercial. Couldn't find any reference here, so here it is.

Great to see him on TV, and still being funny.

I'm going to start posting info on every single person who has ever had a line in anything Whedon has touched.
I think that's uncalled for. This was a fun find.
I'm glad this was posted. I had heard about this commercial, but hadn't seen it yet. I love Steve! Steve's Song is one of my favorites on the Commentary!
Simon: the 'Character' is *numbered*. Not even named.
Good timing. This was just asked about on Twitter the other day.

Yeah, and the actor has an entire song on Commentary! I think the link is valid.
Very cool! Great to see Steve getting work!
thespian: Also, though, isn't he referred to as 'Groupie number 3', rather than simply using a pound sign? Surely a good sign.

Plus, he's evidently good friends with the Whedons, according to the non-musical commentary.

If you look through the archives, he has been covered here before. Not massively but he has had a mention or too on the front page. Plus as already mentioned he sings his own song on the DVD (as written by Joss and Jed).

And on a general note, we will no doubt be getting more of these types of items during the summer as Dollhouse coverage will slacken to a trickle. And more stuff by cast and crew will come to the forefront. Once Dollhouse comes back on in the Fall(?), focus will switch back to that show.
Incredibly valid link. Steve is talented, funny, and had an extremely entertaining part in Dr. Horrible.

I thought links of this nature were a considerably large reason the site exists. Anyway, cool find, captainforehead!

Heh, I remember being on holiday in Vancouver and completely unfamiliar with Mike's Hard Lemonade. It was blisteringly hot in the middle of the day, and I saw it on sale and though "Mmmm ... lemonade. Perfect!" so bought it and downed it pretty much in one. It was quite a shock when I realised it was alcoholic. Luckily not really that strong, but a hell of a lot stronger than what I thought I was drinking.
I have seen this commercial, and a couple others he did for Mike's. Never made the connection that it was our Steve. So yeah.... Thanks for posting this.
I think it's a very valid post.
This is what Whedonesque is known for.

Heh, I'm 12.
