Kraft’s Zesty Guy Returns With Delicious New Ads

Earlier this year, Kraft (delightfully) surprised many consumers with a new ad campaign starring the shirtless Zesty Italian guy. The model, Anderson Davis, caught the attention of thousands of fans (and eventually One Million Moms, which picks a fight with anyone remotely interesting). Undeterred by those screaming bigots, Kraft hired photographer Douglas Freidman, last seen on episode two of America’s Next Top Model cycle 20, to photograph Davis in a new set of print ads featuring the remaining selection of salad dressings. Check out all the delicious flavors below.

Thousand Island



Classic Catalina


Raspberry Vinaigrette


Classic (creamy) Ranch

    Ops….that’s one fine ass man. I love his commercials especially when he acts all innocent, like he doesn’t know he’s being sexy. Women have been doing it for years, why not men.

    I wish he was waiting in bed for me at home. Jesus he’s hot.

    @B Damion: I’ll fight you for him. LOL! :-)

    It’s tough not to admire Kraft’s attitude: “Subtlety never moved units.”

    I hate salad dressing… except thousand island… it’s not too bad, but I’d dump a whole bottle on this stud and proceed to lick every drop off of him…. and I wouldn’t give a shit which flavor he wanted me to use…. mmmmmm mmmmmmmm good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    And TVC 15, I’ll fight YOU for him…. LOL!!!!!!!!!

    @stevearies40: & @TVC 15: & @B Damion: — Guys, I wouldn’t care if I came in fourth to have him for sloppy leftovers. Hey, that may even be better!

    OH MY GAWD! I just happened to follow the link below to find other articles relating to “Anderson Davis” and found another article under ‘working model’. I looked through those 18 pictures, and totally agree with you. He’s hot! Initially, I thought the pictures here seemed too airbrushed to be realistic. Now finding the foundation that makes this person causes me to admire (and lust for) him more.
