NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. – A New Hartford teen appears in a national Walmart commercial, that aired for the first time during Sunday Night Football.
Mark Radel’s mother, Mary Radel, says she responded to a casting notice for the commercial and Mark was called back for a Zoom interview. After his audition, Mark was chosen to be featured.
"He's always loved seeing himself on home videos or whatever it was. That's how we knew he liked to do this, because he would always put himself in front of the camera and then he would enjoy seeing the product afterwards and seeing it on the television," said Mary.
Mark’s parents, Mary and Pat Radel say its nice to see the commercial air during Down Syndrome Awareness Month.
Mark has appeared in films as well, including "Demolition" with Jake Gyllenhaal.
