TY Burrell is undeniably one of the funniest men on TV thanks to his role on Modern Family — and now he’s signed up for a new campaign in Australia.
The 47-year-old actor, who plays Phil Dunphy in the hit show and whose character is known for his ‘Phil’s Wisdom’, is appearing in webisodes for Ten in an ad campaign for Toyota.
But unlike other advertisements, Burrell appears as his Modern Family character.
Webisodes revolve around ‘parenting wisdom from the Phil Seat’ — his driving seat.
One webisode includes one on “The Stare” where he talks about the stare’s he gives to his children from the front seat.
“Sometimes communication takes more than words.
“That’s when I use less than words, the Stare.
“Its an impenetrable look that says im in the drivers seat in life, the phil seat.
“I use it to instil obedience and gut-wrenching fear in my children who I of course love very much,” Dunphy explains.
“I actually have several stares, the enough with the back chat, I am serious stare,” he continues.
“The eyes at the back of my head stare, but with my eyes obviously still at the front of my head,” it continues.
Burrell was last in Australia filming episodes for the hit show in February with the rest of the cast, including Sofia Vergara, Eric Stonestreet and Jesse Tyler Ferguson.
Appereantly back on 1st October cast of Modern Family did a press conference in Beverly Hills. Enjoy the HQ pictures.
